4 Reasons External Roller Blinds Are Ideal for Offices

by Carolyn Jordan

When people think about roller blinds, they usually only consider those that are fitted inside a property. While these might be the most common type, you can also opt for external roller blinds. These are fitted outside the windows of a property rather than inside, and they're often particularly attractive for office spaces.

Here are just four reasons you should consider fitting your office building with external roller blinds

1. Keeps Everyone Comfortable    

Internal window coverings provide some protection from the elements, but external ones generally do a better job. External roller blinds are great at blocking out heat since they form a barrier outside of the property itself that can be fitted perfectly across the whole window. They also allow you to open the windows without having to worry about the wind blowing papers around or bugs and insects invading the office. This makes them great for helping to maintain a comfortable office environment in all conditions. That means happier workers and a more productive working environment.

2. Helps Control Energy Costs

The fact external blinds are so good at preventing offices from overheating will also help keep your energy bills in check. You can even take this benefit further by opting for external roller blinds made from solar-reflective fabric. Given how much heat and sunlight can stream in through large office windows, choosing the most energy-efficient coverings can make a big difference. As such, you might be surprised by just how much you save by fitting external roller blinds.  

3. Provides Privacy Without Obscuring Views

It can be tough to get a good balance when it comes to office window coverings. You want your employees to be able to see out so they don't start feeling like they're working in a cave, but you may also want them to enjoy some privacy, especially if they're on the ground floor. External blinds help you achieve that balance. They provide complete coverage, and yet you can also opt for mesh options that allow you to see through and enjoy natural light from the inside without making the inside too visible to passersby.

4. Offers a Range of Custom Designs  

Since external roller blinds provide a seamless yet solid appearance, they tend to work well in commercial buildings that need to look their best and present a professional appearance. As an added plus, you can also choose from a wide range of design options to reflect your company's branding. In some cases, it's even possible to print your logo and business name onto external roller blinds.
