1. Internal Roller Blinds

Blackout roller blinds are a practical and unobtrusive window covering ideal for bedrooms, home theatres, boardrooms, nurseries and other rooms where light block and privacy is important. They consist of a single sheet of blackout fabric that rolls up or down depending on your preference. 

With specially designed headboxes, compressible brush seals and aluminium side channels, Helioscreen’s blackout roller blinds take a space from bright to near complete darkness in seconds.  

As well as blocking light, blackout blinds are great for thermal control. They keep your home cool and comfortable in summer and retain the warmth during winter, enhancing the energy efficiency of your home.

2. External Roller Blinds

Designed to control the entry of natural light, heat and glare, external blackout blinds are a great alternative to indoor roller blinds. Made with durable and stylish blockout fabrics, they’re ideal for shading bedrooms, decks, patios, meeting rooms and home theatres. 

Outdoor blackout blinds attach to the external façade of the building, preventing up to 90% of heat and light from entering the room. They stop the hot sun seeping through the windows, creating a more comfortable indoor environment and significantly reducing the strain on your HVAC systems. 

3. Venetian Blinds

External venetian blinds are another popular window covering for residential and commercial buildings. They’re made of horizontal slats that easily raise, lower or tilt to allow full control over light, privacy and temperature.  

While they don’t allow for complete light block, the benefits of external venetian blinds are endless. They’re flexible, durable and reflect up to 90% of the sun’s heat and glare, keeping your space cool and comfortable during sweltering Aussie summers. 

Venetian blinds are a popular addition to many homes and businesses, well-suited to sheltering bedrooms, decks, offices, courtyards and living areas.
