Protecting your home from windy weather

Protecting your home from windy weather

Outdoor living is something we can't get enough of here in the land of Oz. From summer barbies and pool parties to alfresco brunches and backyard drinks, we do it all, despite our country's extreme temperatures and occasional bouts of wild weather. That's why we've taken it upon ourselves to produce only the best outdoor blinds and awnings, designed to ensure you can relax and entertain outdoors comfortably all year long.

Choosing outdoor blinds

Here at Half Price Blinds online, we offer four different types of outdoor products: outdoor shutters, Windmaster blinds, folding arm awnings and automatic awnings. To find out which style is the right choice for your home or business, keep reading!

Made for windy weather

With a vast majority of Australian homes situated near the coast, wind is something we all have to battle no matter what the time of year. That's why it's wise to make sure your blinds or awnings have been crafted with windy conditions in mind. For wind-resistant blinds, choose Windmaster blinds (the name says it all, really)! These sturdy channel blinds offer a functional and fashionable way to wind proof your outdoor area. Featuring heavy-duty base rails, locks and heavy-duty channels, these blinds won't flap about or make any loud clanging noises when the wind's a-blowing.

Function and fashion

Call me superficial, but I think outdoor blinds should be as stylish as they are functional. Luckily, our range of outdoor blinds, shutters and awnings tick this box with ease. They're low maintenance, durable and are also available in a range of trending colours and optional extras, so you can get a style that suits your home perfectly.

Folding arm awnings are a particularly great choice if you value fashion and functionality as they can be easily folded away when not in use for a minimal and uncluttered look. Plus, compared to other fixtures and built-in shading devices, awnings won't cost too much money. They can also be easily removed since they are only fitted on the face of the wall and not integrated with structural elements.

Stay in one place

Most patio awnings tend to flap about when it's windy outside, which is pretty darn annoying (especially when you've just sat down on the couch to watch your fave TV show) not to mention a huge safety hazard! Making sure you purchase wind proof outdoor blinds will not only give you some peace and quiet, but you'll also enjoy peace of mind. As previously mentioned, Windmaster blinds are a great wind resistant product, as are outdoor shutters, as they'll be sure to stay in place during any windy weather.

Low Maintenance

My favourite feature of our outdoor range of blinds and awnings is that they're all pretty low maintenance, so you don't have to bother with too much upkeep. This is particularly true when selecting a heavy-duty option like Windmaster blinds. With these blinds installed, this not only means there's less risk of damage when rough weather hits, but you also don't need to worry about cleaning your blinds and keeping them dry.
