Ultimate In Stylish Outdoor Blinds

Stratco Ambient Outdoor Blinds are the ultimate external screening solution for any outdoor area or window.

Ambient Outdoor Blinds from Stratco offer you a beautiful range of solutions to outdoor lifestyle issues such as sunglare, heat control, UV protection, privacy, and even insect control. To further enhance your lifestyle, all year round.

Specially designed for alfresco entertaining areas such as pergolas, verandahs and balconies, the Ambient Outdoor Blinds range attractively integrates into your design style. Equally suitable for domestic or commercial applications with design options to suit individual requirements and a wide range of environmental conditions.

The Regent style utilises a zip welded to the sides of the blind running invisibly within custom-fitted Aluminium side-tracks to give a very tidy appearance and tighter screen holding.

Compatible with all fabric colours and openness factors,and while operable with a motor, the Windsor is ideally suited for either manual operation or crank operation.

Frame Colours:

All Ambient Blinds are available in a choice of six popular standard frame colours: Alpine, Sand Dune, Desert, Storm, Thunder or Deep Space. (Speak to your Ambient Blinds salesperson if a custom colour is required.)

All frames are powder coated to an exceptional exterior grade quality, providing superior, long lasting protection and colour to any outdoor area.

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 New Zealand 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

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.
