Sunscreen Blinds For Absolute UV, Light and Privacy Protection Photo by Anne Layman

As the name suggests, a sunscreen blind protects the inside of your home from harmful UV rays of the sun. If the Ultra violet (UV) rays of the sun fall on fabric or polished wood or any coloured surface, it will cause the colour to fade. Polished wood especially glazed wood will crack due the intensity of the heat and the UV rays. If you have a sofa set near an unprotected window with the sun falling on the back of the sofa, take a look at the back of the sofa - you will notice extensive colour fading. If your sofa is covered with leather or resin you will notice hairline creases. All this and more can be prevented by using sunscreen blinds.

Varity of colours, sizes and options

In the days of the Egyptian Pharos, a sunscreen blind was made of reeds from the Nile river. The reeds were placed horizontally one below the other and threaded together. They even had a twine to raise or lower the sunscreen blind. These untreated sunscreen blinds often stank in the monsoons and the slightest breeze caused it to create a racket banging against the wall.

Thankfully, today, technological advances have ensured that sunscreen blind manufacturers no longer need to use reeds for making sunscreen blinds (although these are still sold in Egyptian shops).

Today, sunscreen blinds are made from a wide variety of human-friendly materials and are available in a range of options including Sydney Awnings, Roller blinds, Panel glide blinds, Holland Blinds and external blinds.
