Controls for a roller blind have moved with technology and are not only available in the original spring control, but with a winding mechanism (chain control), which is either a metal or plastic chain depending on your decor & requirements.

At night when a light is turned on, the reverse happens, where the vision is from the outside to inside. To eliminate this, the screen blind can be teamed with a blockout blind, (also known as a double bracket blind or day/night blind), or drape/curtain. These will also assist with the thermal control as well as providing privacy.
The fabrics available can have varying openness factors which will assist in the blockout of UV light and help reduce UV rays which can damage furniture and floor coverings.

Awnings are the perfect outdoor protection for your windows that have complete exposure to the sun. The heat from the sun is transferred through the glass in the window, (even those that are double glazed), and is changed to a radiant heat in your furniture and floor coverings. This creates the need to prevent the sun's rays coming into direct contact to the glass by covering with an awning.
The benefits of installing outside awnings include controlling the ambience inside your home and reducing energy costs, privacy, protection for your floor coverings and furniture and controlling harmful UV rays and glare.
Awnings can be manufactured from canvas, acrylics, and mesh screen. All of these fabrics come in a range of colours, plain and stripes. The canvas and acrylics are a solid covering while the mesh screen allows you visibility out through the day. If you do not cover the window internally at night, the visibility is reverse, and people can see in.
Canvas offers the best protection with the highest rating for heat reflection, has an even absorption over awning, transmission through awning and shade when compared to acrylic and mesh screen. There are different styles of awnings available, including automatic and rope & pulley, to suit your needs.
