Which is best for Outdoor blinds PVC or Mesh?
Mesh blinds are a great outdoor solution as they provide amazing protection from the wind, rain and insects, but also let the airflow so you can enjoy a cooling breeze. Mesh blinds come in a huge range of colours to compliment your exterior, and you can select from different types of weave with varying degrees of privacy. The tighter the weave of the fabric the higher the shade protection and privacy level.
Our mesh fabrics are some of the most advanced technical fabrics around; they are built from a high tensile polymer to withstand the harsh Australian climate and give high abrasion resistance and durability.

How do I clean my outdoor blinds?
PVC blinds generally require more maintenance than mesh blinds because just like windows they tend to show the dirt. PVC blinds should be rinsed down with a hose before cleaning in order to rinse off any dirt or debris that could scratch the blind.
Once the blind has been rinsed down, it can be cleaned with a soft cloth using a very mild soapy solution. Dishwashing detergent is fine but only use a small amount well diluted with water. The surface of PVC is porous so can be prone to scratches. Do not use a brush to clean PVC blinds as this may scratch the surface of the PVC. Once you have cleaned the blind give it a final rinse with clean water and then for the ultimate finish, dry with a chamois cloth.
Always allow the blind to dry before rolling it up to prevent moisture being trapped inside the layers of the rolled-up blind.
Mesh Outdoor Blinds
Mesh outdoor blinds are less sensitive to cleaning than PVC blinds. Our Mesh blinds are manufactured using a high tensile polymer which has very high abrasion resistance making them less susceptible to scratching and damage during cleaning.
Mesh outdoor blinds can be cleaned using a soft cloth or sponge and cold soapy water (dishwashing liquid is fine). Rinse the blind after cleaning and allow to dry. Never roll a mesh blind up when still wet as this can trap water between the layers of fabric which may cause damage over the long term.
General Outdoor Blind Cleaning Tips
- Clean bird droppings off any outdoor blinds as soon as possible. Some bird droppings contain chemicals which may damage the blind.
- Never use a pressure washer to clean outdoor blinds as this can result in damage or sagging.
- Always allow the blind to dry before rolling it up to prevent moisture from being trapped inside the layers of the blind.
