What Are the Best Outdoor Blinds for Blocking Wind and Rain?

Last updated on



If you enjoy outdoor living and entertaining and you want to make your alfresco spaces more useable all year round, then outdoor blinds are the perfect solution to protect from the elements. Perth is well known as being one of the world’s windiest cities, so having blinds that will protect you from this as well as the rain that can come with tropical storms is essential. At Nu Style Shutters, we have over 20 years’ experience providing Perth homes and businesses with high quality shutters and outdoor blinds. Here’s our guide to the best outdoor blinds for blocking wind and rain.

Blinds Offering Protection from Rain and Wind

If you’re looking for strong and sturdy outdoor blinds that are capable of providing protection against the harsh Australian climate, there are few options worth considering.

Ziptrak Blinds

Available in manual or electric options, Ziptrak blinds are a bestselling outdoor blind Australia-wide. Featuring no straps, zips, buckles or handles, you simply adjust them by gliding the bottom rail to any desired height. Durable and strong enough to provide resistance against strong winds and heavy rain, Ziptrak Outdoor Blinds are one of the best options to keep your alfresco, patio or deck area insulated and dry all year round.

Crank and Clip Blinds

Easy to operate and available in woven PVC mesh, or a full block out canvas or plastic, crank handle blinds feature a manually operated handle that clips into a fixing point to keep it in place at any chosen height. One of the best advantages of crank and clip blinds is that you can use several next to each other to provide weather protection to areas larger than 5 meters without having any fixed tracks or legs obstructing the view.

Café Blinds

The perfect solution for a full weather block out on your home or business without sacrificing your view, café blinds are quite popular in the hospitality industry as well as in homes across Perth.

The excellent protection and insulation provided by café blinds make outdoor living, dining and entertaining easy – even in the middle of a storm. Great for coastal homes, café blinds are a great way to close off an outdoor space and keep the weather out, ensuring people using the space are dry and warm and comfortable. Any home or business that is regularly exposed to the elements can benefit greatly from the rain and wind protection provided by quality café blinds.

What About Blinds for Sun Protection?

When you’re wanting a little more shade in your alfresco area, sunblock blinds, roller blinds and outdoor patio blinds are a highly effective method of protection from the scorching Perth sun and heat. Basic roller pull-down sun blinds and modern slim-line style designs are available with mesh, clear or tinted PVC, making them ideal for when you want to reduce the amount of sunlight that enters your alfresco area. Offering effective sun protection for easy temperature control and the elimination of sun glare, sunblock blinds are a popular choice for homeowners and hospitality businesses wanting to make their outdoor dining areas more comfortable and inviting during the hot summer months.
