Fabric Range

Colour Choice

Choose from 12 different colours to match or contrast with your existing décor. From glare reducing dark greys to clean and welcoming creams, and many natural tones in between.

All Ambient Blinds are made from very durable fabric to stand up to the harsh Australian conditions. The tear resistant, PVC coated Polyester fabric is both UV tolerant and mould and mildew resistant, while all seams are nonsagging, high-frequency welded for a long beautiful service life.

Fabric Types

You can select from 3 Openness Factors
(tightness of the fabric weave):

  • 1% OPENNESS for excellent breeze control and privacy,
  • 5% OPENNESS for a popular combination of shading, privacy and views, to suit your specific need,
  • 15% OPENNESS for excellent shading while retaining great views.

When choosing your fabric it is helpful to note;

  • Darker colours reduce glare
  • Paler colours reflect heat and reduce heat loading
  • Higher openness fabrics offer clearer views
  • Smaller openness fabrics offer greater privacy

Installation

Operating Your Ambient Blinds

There are 3 methods to extend and retract the Ambient Blinds.
All are compatible with the different blind styles and all are simple and easy to use.

MANUAL - Spring assisted action

As the name suggests, this has a pre-tensioned spring inside the blind mechanism which makes the movement up or down virtually effortless. Optional bottom rail handles and optional self-locking mechanism available for REGENT and CHELSEA, and optional tie-down kit available for WINDSOR.

MANUAL - Crank driven action

The blinds are driven by a hand-held winder which is available in 3 different lengths: 1 metre, 1.5 metres, or 2 metres. An optional self-locking mechanism is available. Suitable for very tall or wide blinds.

MOTOR DRIVEN - Remote or switch activated

For the ultimate in ease and control you can opt for one of the motor driven solutions. Different remote options are available. Remotes are compatible with up to 15 separate blinds.

Caring For Your Outdoor Blinds

Follow these simple tips to prolong the life of your blinds and keep them looking great: 

Regularly clean your blind

  • Clean your blind at least every 3 months.
  • Clean your blind with a soft brush to remove any visible dirt, dust and grime.
  • Cleaning regularly with a soft brush along the side channel will help prevent a build-up of dust and dirt.
  • Use a soft cloth and warm soapy water to clean the aluminium surfaces.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaning agents under any circumstances.
  • Operating your blind at least once a week will help to prevent the build-up of dirt and dust that may inhibit the operation of the blind.

Do not

  • Do not roll up your blind when wet to avoid mould.
  • Do not force your blind if it is jamming - contact your Ambient Blinds supplier for assistance.
  • Do not leave your blind unrolled during extreme weather conditions or if you are away from home.
  • Do not operate your blind by pulling down at the side - always use the handle to pull down from the centre.
  • If the blind is fitted with a motor or gearbox for crank operation - do not attempt to manually move the blind, only use the control mechanism.
