How to Install Awning Blinds for Roof Windows

25th November 2021

Awning blinds are external window blinds designed to control the sun intensity into your home and offer high quality insulation. The awning blind is made of waterproof fabric, with an aluminium rod attached at its centre, which is used for hanging the blind.

The Benefits Of Awning Blinds

There are many benefits that come with installing awning blinds. Firstly, awning blinds help to improve the energy efficiency of your home by preventing unwanted heat through entering your window. Secondly, despite being made from fabric they have the ability to block out light and prevent glare, and when paired with internal skylight lights, can make a room the ideal environment for sleeping in. They are available in a variety of fabrics and colours so you can choose a style to match your home.
