PVC Café blinds Vs Accolade Weather Screens

We often are contacted to remove and replace both old and newly installed PVC Café Blinds with an Accolade Weather Screen system.
Accolade PVC Weather Screens not only look good, they are functional to use, stylish and are designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate.
When considering PVC Café Blinds / Bistro Blinds / Alfresco Blinds, there are some key considerations that must be addressed;

  1. Functionality
    It is lot easier to operate a Accolade PVC Door vs bending down to lift a PVC bistro blind, even if it in its own channel system. Those with zippers and cranks / pulleys are time consuming and tedious to operate. Typically what we hear from our clients is that those who have PVC Blinds have them down permanently, they’re just too difficult to operate.
  2. Wind Force
    The surface area of a PVC Café Blind is significantly higher that than of an individual Accolade Weather Screens. Often suppliers of PVC Blinds will have fine print requiring the Café Blind to be rolled up when the wind force exceeds 80km gusts?. What happens if you’re not home to do this? A larger surface area of a blind means there is more force being exerted. We often see the pulleys, fixing, zippers and channels of PVC Blind installations ripped off the walls, ground and brick work. Also very common is rattling and banging around in high winds. This causes damage to the outdoor area and also the PVC Blinds themselves
  3. Clarity of PVC
    Large PVC Bistro Blinds require welds and or joins over large openings. They are also lose their tightness which causes a reduction in clarity. Continually rolling up and down of a PVC / Alfresco blinds will cause it to scuff on itself and lose tension.
    The PVC in an Accolade Weather Screen remains taunt as it stretched and permanently held into position. This increase the clarity and improves the overall look and appearance of your outdoor area.
