What Is a Sunscreen Roller Blind?
A Sunscreen Roller Blind is a type of blind that has an open weave fabric and is used to cover windows in your home or office. Sunscreen Roller Blinds are also referred to as sunscreen roller blinds, mesh blinds or indoor Sunscreen Roller Blinds. They’re an excellent option in Melbourne if you are looking for privacy, UV and heat protection during the day. They have a beautiful and modern look about them. Sunscreen materials are made from a combination of PVC and Polyester. As an open weave they create a one-way vision allowing you to see out during the day but not in. Sunscreen Roller Blinds offer an affordable yet modern solution to both heat, light control and privacy.
With a side chain to operate the blinds up or down they are very easy to operate. (Motorisation is also available)
Rather than rating in terms of blockout, Sunscreen Roller Blinds are rated in terms of openness and will vary between 3% openness to 7% openness. Openness describes the amount of light and vision available.

Sunscreen Roller Blinds Operations Available
For ease of use today’s Sunscreen Roller Blinds are usually operated with a rotation chain. We also offer motorisation which is an excellent option for high or hard to reach windows. If you want to match old blinds we still have the traditional spring operation available. There are five different choices available for Sunscreen Roller Blinds operations. The most popular is the chain operation due to the ease of operation. Each operation serves a purpose and all are available for you.
Standard Chain operation
A PVC or metal (stainless steel) chain is fitted at one side of the blinds called the rotation chain. By pulling down on either the front or the back of the chain allows the blinds to be raised or lowered.
Having the linked method means 2 blind are linked together with one control. Linking reduces the gaps between blinds from 35mm to 20mm.
Where privacy is an issue or greater protection from the sun is needed use our dual option. This option allows a blockout blind to be installed with the Sunscreen Roller Blinds. This is where both blockout and Sunscreen Roller Blinds are installed on the same bracket which allows the blockout blind to be pulled down when privacy and light block is required and the sunscreen to be pulled down when only privacy is required still allowing you to see out.
The spring operation Sunscreen Roller Blinds is considered the traditional method use to operate a roller blind. The blind is always under tension. To operate, the blind is pulled down by hand and once at the right height slightly release the pressure and the spring will lock into position. To lift, pull down slightly to release the locking mechanism and the tension will automatically lift the blind. Continue holding the base until it’s lifted to the desired height.
