How to Protect Your Outdoor Area From Windy Weather

Hats off to Perth in the sunshine department (we average eight sun-drenched hours a day), but if there’s one thing we Perth-siders can count on all year-round? It’s got to be the wind!

How to Protect Your Outdoor Area From Windy Weather

Best Wind-Blocking Blinds

Life in the world’s third windiest city can be a challenge at times, especially given our fondness for outdoor living. From summer’s daily afternoon sea breezes to winter’s gusty, unpredictable winds, battening down the hatches is essential.

When it comes to choosing outdoor blinds to endure the windiest of Perth days, and ensure you can continue using your outdoor area whatever the weather, here’s what you need to consider:

Made to withstand Mother Nature

Most regular patio awnings aren’t sturdy enough to bear the strong winds we experience in Perth, so it’s wise to make sure the blinds you select are crafted with WA’s windy climate in mind. Enter the Windmaster range; awnings that are made with durability and resistance to extreme weather at top of mind. Made locally, specifically in answer to Perth’s blustery climate, you know they’re made to last.

Minimal Movement

Some patio awnings tend to flap about when the wind starts to pick up, which is not only annoying, it’s a potential safety hazard. Making sure your blinds stay taut and secure will help you to enjoy peace of mind and the advantages of investing in quality outdoor blinds. Ensure your blinds are correctly fastened and check the design for features like heavy-duty base rails, locks and heavy-duty channels to minimise any fabric movement when those winds are a blowin’.

Low Maintenance

While regular cleaning and maintenance is the best way to lengthen the life span of your blinds, let’s be honest, no one wants to be fussing over outdoor blinds! Going for a heavy duty option like Windmaster, not only means there’s less risk of damage when the weather hits, but you don’t need to worry too much about the regular upkeep, like cleaning your blinds and keeping them dry.

Function and Fashion

As with anything for our home, we need our outdoor blinds to not only do the job well, but to look effortlessly stylish while they’re at it! If you live in Perth, you can’t go past the Windmaster outdoor blinds; not only are they built to stand the test of time and are as low maintenance as outdoor blinds come, they’re also available in a huge range of bang-on-trend colours and optional extras (like solar powered motorisation), making them an ideal choice for your home.

If you’re interested in installing wind-resistant awnings, we’d love to hear from you! Give us a call, book a free measure and quote online, or visit one of our showrooms to view the Windmaster range.
