Patio blinds are the most common form of outdoor blinds in South Africa and protects your patio against rain, sunshine and wind, for all year round use and allows you to enjoy uninterrupted views from the comfort of your patio and are very popular on patio’s and entertainment areas. PVC Blinds are very attractive, cost effective and protects against all elements. Your patio or lapa blinds will protect the outdoor structure against the elements.
The structure of the blinds consists of a border of solid material into which a clear vinyl window is inserted. ROPE & PULLEY Blinds are the more affordable option. This system works with ropes that are threaded through eyelets at the top of the blind. Cords are then fed through these eyelets. To retract the blind, the cords are pulled and secured to the cleats provided
