01:28 – Advantages of using inner and outer roller blinds
Hi, I’m Jason from the company Blockout Blinds. Today I’m going to be talking about inner and outer roller blinds.
We all know these days that roller blinds are the most popular blinds about and of the roller blinds most people like to get dual rollers which just simply means a blockout roller blind that you can put down at night and the screen roller blind that you can put on during the day for privacy.
1. Mounted Inside the Window Frame
There are many different ways you can mount the blinds in your windows, one way is to put both the roller blinds inside the window frame which is fine if you got the room. However, you can get gaps at the side and let a little bit of light in.
2. Mounted On the Window Frame
The other way is to put the two roller blinds on the face or on the frame of the window. Once again which is fine but because they’re both on the face the second blind sticks out quite a distance and comes in to the room and some people don’t like that.
3. Mounted Inner and Outer
So what’s the third way? With inner and outer. Well, this is the way we prefer to install the dual rollers, as you can see in this photo here, we have a screen blind on the inside of the window and that’s called the inner blind and then we have a blockout roller blind on the face of the window and that’s called the outer blind.
So that’s called the inner and outer, there’s a couple of advantages:
The block outs on the face and it stops all the light from coming through, there’s no gaps.
The cord for the blockout and the cord or I should say chain are on separate locations so there’s no confusion in terms about mixing them up.
Generally because both the inner and the outer blinds both have the fabric rolling over the back, you pull the chain in the same direction on both blinds to pull the blinds up and down.
So here just a few advantages of having your blinds as an inner or outer, it doesn’t always work that way but generally most windows can be set-up like that and if they can that’s what we recommend you do.
So once again, I’m Jason from Blockout Blinds, I hope I’ve been of some help to you today.
