External venetian blinds are one of the most classic and popular choices for shading spaces. And for good reason – they do their job perfectly. There are two types of blinds: external blinds and internal blinds. They both have their strengths, of course. You don’t know what type to choose? Let’s take a look at their differences and major advantages.
EXTERNAL VENETIAN BLINDS VERSUS INTERNAL VENETIAN BLINDS
They both boast quality slats made of aluminium materials. The difference is only in the size of slats and the craftsmanship, as external blinds must generally be more robust because of the direct environmental impact. The main difference is, of course, in the installation location. Internal blinds are placed on the interior of the glass, and external blinds are placed on the exterior. The location of installation is also the main source of differences in the advantages offered by both types of blinds.
ADVANTAGES OF EXTERNAL VENETIAN BLINDS
External blinds do not occupy space and do not affect the overall design of the space. At the same time, they are an excellent heat regulator. They prevent light and heat from fully penetrating through the glass into the room. They are popular for use in larger business or public spaces and private facilities. The view from the room is not overly obstructed and they are highly durable and resilient, since they are exposed to environmental effects. They are available in various implementations, for example with roller boxes. Or, in a security implementation that further protects the space from intruders along with providing shading. They are mainly popular in larger industrial facilities and public spaces, as well as small private facilities.
ADVANTAGES OF INTERNAL VENETIAN BLINDS
The interior installation ensures that the blinds are safe from weather influences and the potential effects of damage from intruders. They also complement the design of the room since they come in various colours and shapes. They are a very affordable solution that is popular in both homes and in business areas.
WHICH TO CHOOSE?
In view of all the above strengths and limitations, the decision is entirely up to you. Select the item that will provide a higher quality of wellbeing in the selected facility.
