If you own a business with an outdoor dining area such as a restaurant, ice cream shop, bakery, deli or a café, then it is a good idea to make sure that this area is accessible in the winter as well as the summer to ensure you make the best use of your space. While it is always important to have an awning that will protect your diners from the sun’s harmful UYV rays and to keep them cool in the hot summer months, it is also a good idea to encourage them to sit outside when the rain starts to fall by offering them a seating area that is fully protected.
This can be achieved by installing clear blinds that can be pulled down when the weather turns for the worse and they are available in a range of styles – all with different mechanisms. Good quality clear PVC blinds in Melbourne, Auckland, Manchester or whichever city in the world you live in can be found with a quick online search.
These blinds make it easy for your customers to enjoy dining al fresco whatever the weather is doing and will protect them from all of the following:
As they are clear, they are very unobtrusive and it makes it easy to ensure that your customers will still be able to enjoy the view outside whatever Mother Nature throws your way. This is why they are so appealing to business owners with outdoor seating areas, as your patrons will still be able to see outside when the blinds are pulled down. You can even choose between different operating systems to draw the blinds up and down as and when you need them.
You can get your blinds custom made to suit your exact requirements and you will need to ensure that the company you choose to order your blinds through has a good reputation for selling high quality blinds.
You can do this by doing the following:
- Check out reviews written by other customers
- Look into the materials that are used
- Enquire about the guarantee that they offer
- Contact them for some expert advice
The great thing about using clear blinds is that they won’t affect the view and you can use other pieces of equipment like heat lamps to make sure your diners are warm and comfortable.
These blinds can be pulled down over a balcony area if the wind begins to whip in and they also work well on the side of a conservatory, a sun room, a patio area and a decking area, which would all be open to the elements without these blinds working as a blocker on the sides. You will need to have a roof structure of some kind already fitted and the blinds will pull down wherever you have a gap on the sides and they work particularly well to block out the rain.
