Increasing The Longevity Of Your Outdoor Blinds
Published 23rd Mar 2021

As with any outdoor product such as outdoor tables and chairs, outdoor sofas and even decking, outdoor blinds are at risk of being affected by adverse weather conditions all year, from the harsh summer sun to strong winter winds and periods of heavy rain or storms. Proper care and attention will help to ensure their quality remains intact and their lifespan is extended as much as possible. Being exposed to the elements 24/7 can mean that if your outdoor blinds are not completely secured and cared for, they will not last as long as they could. Follow some simple tips to keep your blinds looking like new for years to come.


One of the major weather conditions that can affect the longevity of your outdoor blinds is wind. While outdoor blinds are meant to provide a certain level of protection from the wind when in use, it isn’t wise to leave them down at all times. Perth is often referred to as being the third windiest city in the world and this means that securing your outdoor blinds properly during windy periods is essential to keep them in the best shape.


By rolling your outdoor blinds up during periods of extreme windy weather, the blinds will be fastened and secured out of the way and therefore protected from potential damage or tears due to high wind speeds and any possible debris from stormy weather. We’ve all seen trampolines rolling down the street and branches broken off trees and the damage flying objects could do to blinds which are in use would mean costly repairs or even replacement blinds may be needed.


When rolling up and securing PVC blinds, make sure they are dry before rolling them up as any water left on them will not be able to evaporate. This will lead to deterioration of the PVC which will affect the lifespan of your outdoor PVC blinds.


Generally it is best practice to ensure all outdoor blinds and folding arm awnings are rolled up or retracted at night, as you never know what sort of conditions to expect overnight. The last thing you want to do is wake up to damaged blinds and potentially costly repairs.
