External Blinds at Alexandria

Project brief

Provide outdoor blinds for sun protection and privacy at an inner Sydney café and restaurant.

Project specifics

The client required sun protection and privacy at their restaurant in Sydney’s inner west, Alexandria.

Lets get technical!

Fabric: Soltis Mesh
Powder Coating: Dulux Duralloy
Fact: Did you know that folding arm awnings can reduce heat transference into your home upwards of 70% by reducing direct sun rays onto your glass, you can safely and efficiently reduce heat in your home, at the touch of a button.

In consultation with this indoor/outdoor dining venue, we chose to partner with Australian’s premium awning and blind Manufacturer – Helioscreen.

External blinds are designed to control the entry of natural light. They increase the thermal comfort of the internal space with impressive heat gain reductions and increase visual comfort by reducing glare while maintaining views from the inside.

By installing a Helioscreen Ozsun Sun Control System, the internal conditions of any room or outdoor entertaining area’s are improved. The demand on air conditioning systems are quickly reduced – saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By having an external fabric, it forces the sun to avoid making direct contact with the windows which prevents heat transferring straight into the area. 

External Blinds can be operated simply with a wall switch, a touch panel, or using a remote control with optional sensors also available. External blind systems are suitable in both commercial and domestic applications and come with quality and performance warranties.

Unaffected by extreme temperature changes, Helioscreen External Blinds are the appropriate choice for restaurants and dining venues as the customers can enjoy a pleasurable dining experience regardless of the particular weather conditions. The external blinds operate using discreet stainless steel side cables or sleek aluminium zip guide side channels, powder coated to suit the exterior of the venue. Located in the sunny Sydney suburb of Alexandria, External Blinds were the perfect choice for this indoor/outdoor dining space.
