The Benefits of Polyester and PVC Fabrics for External Shutters
Published 29th Feb 2016

Synthetic polyester and PVC are well suited for use in outdoor blinds, due to their resistance to damage from the elements and their natural light filtering properties.

Benefits of polyester fabrics

Polyester blinds and awnings are waterproof and anti-abrasion in nature, as well as possessing excellent UV stability so the colours won’t fade. Advances in fabric colouring technology have allowed for more diversity than ever before when choosing suitable colours and designs for polyester blinds and shades, so you’ll be able to find options to fit any home style, especially when making use of custom blinds. Polyester is an affordable material that can also save you money on electrical cooling bills by blocking out light and heat.

Benefits of PVC fabrics

PVC fabrics offer similar strength and longevity to polyester, with the advantage of being even easier to clean and maintain. PVC is now commonly used in fabrics and other coverings in commercial spaces, such as outdoor cafes and restaurant terraces, but are just as well suited for residential use, whether you’re looking for a fixed or temporary patio awning, or pool shades. Choosing between light and dark PVC blinds will allow you to set the right atmosphere in your home or business premises.
