Glass Roof Blinds

Glass Roof Blinds

Having a glass roof or atrium is great in the winter months letting in lots of winter sun, but when it heats up often rooms underneath become intolerable.

Undercover Blinds atrium shades allow you to extend a motorised, highly tensioned fabric over your glass roof area to block the sun’s rays. At the push of a button you’re in the shade making your air conditioner more efficient and helps ease the fading of furnishings.

With the option of sun sensors, timers and wind sensors, you can be sure your area will be covered and protected around the clock, automatically.

Glass roof blinds can have many fabrics from full blockout material to see-through materials of varying blockout percentages.

We can also integrate the technology into your c-bus or smart home if required. You can extend your awnings over your area when you’re not home via an iPad or mobile device!

Undercover Blinds has a commitment to distributing only high quality products. Our glass roof blinds come with a great guarantee supported by the manufacturers in Germany and Italy. Information on two market leading products is shown below.

What to consider when buying outdoor blinds

We custom build and fit our outdoor blinds directly from our base of operations in Melbourne. Here are some answers to common questions from customers on our custom outdoor blind build and installations.

What role do you want your outdoor blind to fulfil?

With a variety of options, when it comes to outdoor blinds it is imperative to consider exactly what you’d like to achieve in your space. Are you wanting rain protection? Shade in the warmer months? A dry space over your door or a BBQ area? Perhaps you are looking for additional privacy in your outdoor space. Talking to Undercover Melbourne’s outdoor blinds experts is a good place to start. Discuss your outdoor blind project with our team and we’ll work with you to find the perfect outdoor blind to suit your needs and your outdoor space.

Climate

To ensure you select the blind that meets all of your needs, we need to consider the environment the outdoor blinds will find themselves in and the times of the year you are going to want to be maximising their use. Are you only planning on enjoying the beautiful summer weather or do you love being outdoors all year-round where a waterproof retractable roof system would suit your project better?

Ease of use

Do you envision yourself using this space over different times of the day or just once a day or a few times a week? Does the ease of being able to push a button to extend and retract the outdoor blinds appeal? Perhaps you would like to have the outdoor blind connected to your smart home system. Or perhaps you simply want to manually wind the blinds in and out as you see fit. We always say, if the blinds are easy to use, you will get more value (and more use) from them!

Type of fabric

When considering fabrics for your outdoor blind, it is best to delve back into some of your climate considerations to ensure you can use them as often you’d like. Are you looking for an acrylic semi-waterproof fabric to maximise your outdoor shade OR are you wanting a see-through mesh?

Once we have established the your basic requirements in terms of outdoor blind fabrics, we can turn our attention to the colour selection. After all, your blind’s functionality and ability to cope with your outdoor conditions is critical, but how it looks is something you’re going to have to live with and enjoy. And that’s where our outdoor blind experts can help. We’ve styled countless Melbourne homes with our outdoor blinds and we will ensure the blinds we supply are beautiful and enhance your property’s appeal.

 

Energy efficiency

Not only can your outdoor blinds enhance your outdoor living space, they can also save you energy by retaining heat in the winter (saving you on heating costs) and providing welcome shade in the hot summer months. Custom built to “Melbourne’s four seasons in a day climate,” Undercover’s outdoor blinds won’t simply look good, they’ll help you save energy too!
