What are outdoor blinds?

An outdoor blind consists of a sun-resistant fabric, which is installed on the outside of the window. It stops the sun’s heat before it reaches the glass. The sun protection fabric slides open and closed in the side guiding channels. Outdoor blinds are a dynamic solution which you can easily adjust to your liking. Several types exist for installation in the façade, in combination with new windows, or for surface-mounted, after installation or a more limited renovation project.

What are the advantages of outdoor blinds?

Outdoor blinds prevent the house from getting too hot inside by blocking the sunrays before they reach the glass. Discover what you can add to your home with sun protection fabric.

  • With the outdoor blinds closed, you can still see outside while allowing daylight to enter. Unlike roller shutters, which keep out all the light. Unless you opt for blackout outdoor blinds of course, in the bedroom for example.

  • Renson outdoor blinds are durable and robust. They can withstand wind speeds of up to 130 km/h and stormy weather without any problems.

  • Small fabric boxes with narrow side guiding channels and a wide range of colours: this is what makes outdoor blinds an aesthetic choice for your home. And this is especially true if they are completely incorporated into the building envelope.

  • The dynamic character of outdoor blinds makes it possible to bring the best of the outside in during every season; unlike solar control glazing that blocks the sunrays all year round. So outdoor blinds prevent heat but allow in optimum daylight in the summer, and as much solar heat as possible in the winter, meaning you have control.

Take control of the incidence of light with outdoor blinds

Several factors play a role for a healthy indoor climate. You want to create a pleasant indoor temperature and bring in plenty of daylight. Outdoor blinds meet both needs. By playing with the position of your sun protection fabric, you can determine the exact incidence of light. In addition, a blackout screen fabric is also an option to make the bedroom dark and thus promote a good night’s sleep.

How do outdoor blinds work?

The screen fabric moves up and down, in and out of the fabric box, between the side guiding channels. The outdoor blinds are located on the exterior side of the window and thus determine the incoming sunlight. The screen fabric reflects the sunrays and prevents the glass from heating up. This also keeps the indoor environment pleasantly cool.

How do outdoor blinds work?

Are you looking at outdoor blinds or air conditioning in the fight against the heat?

Would you rather cool your home quickly or avoid overheating? Outdoor blinds and air conditioning are completely different systems. However, they are very complimentary. Outdoor blinds provide a solid initial barrier against an indoor climate that is too warm. During lengthy periods of heat, air conditioning can quickly and briefly provide extra cooling. Do you want to get through the summer comfortably? It is best to start with solar shading. By adding night cooling, you use the cooler outside air to lower the indoor temperature by a few degrees.

What are the differences between a windproof zip outdoor blind and a non-windproof outdoor blind?

A non-windproof outdoor blind is only held in the side guiding channel with the bottom bar. The sides of this outdoor blind are loose/open.
A windproof zip outdoor blind has a zip on the sides, from top to bottom. This makes this outdoor blind more resistant to gusts of wind.

Non-windproof outdoor blind

  • Only the bottom bar is fitted into the side guiding channel
  • Small gap between fabric and window
  • Do not use in wind, due to risk of damage

Windproof zip outdoor blind

  • Both bottom bar and fabric, over the full height, are fitted in the side guiding channel
  • No gap between fabric and side guiding channel, for a more beautiful aesthetic result
  • Safe to use even in wind (up to 130 km/h with Renson)

Why choose Renson outdoor blinds?

RENSON regularly optimises its products to continuously improve upon the comfort level, appearance, and durability. Pressure tests, wind tunnel tests, climate tests and endurance tests guarantee the quality of a Renson outdoor blind. Thanks to our ingenious Fixscreen technology, the fabric is windproof in every position. The outdoor blinds can withstand wind speeds of up to 130 km/h when closed. This is equivalent to 12 on the Beaufort scale, namely, a hurricane.


Silent electrical outdoor blinds with easy control

The patented Smooth technology guarantees smooth, silent and durable guiding of the screen fabric in the inner rails and there is virtually no maintenance required. You can also roll the outdoor blinds up and down remotely with extreme ease. The Renson Connect app provides control over the position of the sun protection fabric anytime and anywhere.

Which motor for outdoor blinds?

Wired or radio controlled. The choice of motor supports the outdoor blind options. For example, you may want to couple your sun protection fabric with your home automation or maybe just a remote control will be sufficient? Either way, be sure to inform your Renson distributor at the outset.

The high-quality motors for your Renson electrical sunscreen ensure you can enjoy safer and more sustainable solar shading. The motor stops automatically when it detects an obstacle to prevent damage. For example, if someone leaves a brush against the window, there is a frost blockage, or toys have been left under the outdoor blind. You also enjoy an extended 7-year warranty.

More sustainable and healthier life with sun protection outdoor blinds

Get the most out of your outdoor blinds? Electrical outdoor blinds automatically respond to weather changes and thus help you save on your energy bill. If they detect strong sun, they will go down automatically to save you the large costs associated with active cooling. In winter, they let in the sun’s heat as much as possible to help you save on heating costs. As a result, your outdoor blinds contribute to a healthy indoor climate and a favourable energy bill. Moreover, you can easily set your personal preferences and scenarios for the automated operation.


Are outdoor blinds blackout?

Standard fabrics retain maximum natural light and a view outside. They are not blackout, but you can opt for a blackout fabric for your outdoor blind. You will then have the ideal solution to make the bedroom wonderfully dark. The fabrics range from light blackout to complete blackout. What if you want to start with regular outdoor blinds and add a blackout effect later? It is always possible to exchange the screen fabric.

Should the outdoor blinds be used as solar shading from the inside or outside?

As soon as the sunrays reach the glass, your home heats up. Once the heat is trapped inside your well-insulated home, it is difficult to get it back outside. Opting for outdoor solar shading helps avoid that initial heating. Outdoor solar shading requires a larger initial investment than interior solar shading but has a higher return and therefore a lower operating cost.

Choose outdoor blinds or roller shutters

Outdoor blinds or roller shutters? Weigh up the pros and cons carefully before choosing.
Aesthetically, outdoor blinds can be incorporated into the façade in a much more subtle way while still allowing daylight to enter and blocking out the sun.
In addition, outdoor blinds have broader application possibilities. The differences include:

Outdoor blinds

  • Up to 27.8 m² window area, in limited installation size
  • Also for corner windows or curtain wall
  • Preserved light and view outside
  • Less insulation needed
  • Wide choice for personalisation (fabric types, colours, etc.)

Roller shutters

  • Larger head boxes for smaller dimensions with a greater impact on installation
  • Only for standard windows
  • Connection between inside and outside is lost
  • Needs better insulation
  • Limited options in terms of personalisation
