Retractable External Venetian Blinds – Basic 80C Profile
If you’re a homeowner looking to add style and functionality to your home’s exterior, retractable External Venetian Blinds could be just what you need. Not only do they provide protection from harsh sun, but they also offer a sleek and modern look to your home. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some basic information about retractable external venetian blinds, and specifically, the Sure Shade® Basic
80C L1 W Slat Profile.
Basic Wind Loading Models Use Ladder Braid
Retractable louvres and blinds use ladder braid to control the slat or louvre movement. This ladder braid methodology is taken directly from internal Venetian blinds. Reinforced ladder braid ensures that the louvres can withstand Australia’s harsh climates
80C Sure Shade Slat Profile
The SURE SHADE ® Basic 80C L1 W slat profile is 80mm wide, making it a perfect fit for most homes. This slat profile is designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, ensuring longevity and durability.
Smooth Lift Tape Holes
All 80C Sure Shade slats are manufactured with lift tape holes that are punched and DRAWN to present a smooth round edge to the lift tape. This ensures that the lift tape moves smoothly and easily, without getting caught on any rough edges.
Side Wire Guides for Easy Fixing
Similar to the 100F profile, the 80C profile can also have side wire guides fitted. This allows for very easy fixing and minimal visual obstruction. However, it’s important to note that not all wire guides are created equal. Wire guide cable can be untreated, galvanized or stainless steel. Given Australia’s highly corrosive coastal salt air and humidity, rust is a major issue. ALL SURE SHADE ® blind wire guides are stainless steel coated for both blind and surface abrasion, ensuring that they’ll last for years to come.
In conclusion, retractable external venetian blinds are a great addition to any home, providing style and functionality. The Sure Shade® Basic 80C L1 W Slat Profile is a durable and long-lasting option for homeowners looking to add external Venetian blinds to their homes. With smooth lift tape holes and stainless steel wire guides, this slat profile is built to last in Australia’s harsh weather conditions.
Retractable External Venetian Blinds & Louvres – Superior 80C Profile
Superior 80C H2 WSURE SHADE® and Superior 80C H2 W blinds feature an 80C slat with a 4mm rolled edge, making them unique in their construction. The innovative Hagofix® system allows for the slat to be constructed without ladder braid, resulting in extensive slat angle control and positive control overall. This system uses a stainless steel connector embedded into the rolled edge beading of a blind slat, providing secure attachment and ensuring the slat cannot swivel or slide within the fitting. This inherently stable external venetian blind product is an excellent option for those looking for a sleek and refined look.
Zamac Side Pins for Stable, Secure, and Refined Operation of Superior 80C H2 E Slats
To provide even greater stability, security, and refined operation, the SURE SHADE Superior 80C H2 E slat can be enhanced with Zamac side pins. Zamac is a family of alloys with a base metal of zinc and alloying elements of aluminium, magnesium and copper, making it an excellent choice for high-stress applications. Zamac pins are riveted to alternate slats (left and right), which engage with an extruded aluminium side guide. The side guide has plastic side inserts that reduce noise and provide easy movement, resulting in a superior operating experience.
Wind Stability and Limitations of the 80C Slat Design
While the 80C slat can be made wind stable under moderate loads when used with Hagofix®, side pins, and extruded aluminium side guides, it is important to note that its single convex/concave design cannot offer light, and sun reflective glare block out when fully closed. However, Sure Shade provides a range of engineered solutions and slat profiles that offer functional projects with future viability and solar radiation protection.
