TOP 4 BEST WAYS YOU CAN
PROTECT YOUR OUTDOOR
BLINDS FROM GETTING BLOWN
AWAY BY WINDS
Strapping the Blind
Whether its windy weather or raining outside, outdoor blinds can
manage them all.One of the best ways to protect the blinds from
getting damaged is to strap it. You can simply tie the ends of the blinds
to a stable base such as wall ends or ground post. This setup will make
them stable, and they will not clatter together or with the walls or
windows. This is a simple way of dealing with windy weather. For tying
them together, you can use ropes made of durable materials like Nylon
or Kevlar to add the extra strength.
Installing them with Strong
Usually, blinds are light in weight and made from very durable
materials.But what causes the problem is the wind load. When the
outdoor blind is rolled down and attached to the ground post, it goes
through a lot of wind force.
Thus, the mounting points and supporting steelwork needs to be strong
enough to take the load. Blinds sometimes require a special steel
mounting frame reinforcement to help beef up the support. So, from the
very start, make sure that the installation is done by experts who know
what they are doing and which materials they are using. They can plan
better and make the structure strong.
It is a known fact that whether its blinds or curtains, their real purpose is
achieved only when it is of correct measurement. Outdoor blinds are
like a shield protecting the structure underneath from wind, snow, and
rain. High-intensity wind will eventually damage the blinds and its
structural joints. As a result, your blinds will lose their control and will
result in damages to your property and your investment. So, during the
installation, put more emphasis on the measurement part as it will help
blinds against windy weather.
Keeping the Entry/Exit ways
Most of the time, café and restaurant owners want their customers to
feel comfortable. And for doing so, they are tempted to block the exit
and entry of their building with blind covers. They can also use the
freed-up space in the outside to set up a few extra tables.
But this practice can end up haywire at the time of emergencies like
storms. It can hinder the pathway for the people. By selecting a design
that doesn’t block the entrance can do the trick. You don’t have to
worry about the traffic flow in such situations.
