The most important factor for many people when selecting blinds, is light control. A good blind will block or filter the light perfectly according to the style and purpose of the room. At Wynstan we have three opacity options when it comes to selecting blind fabrics. Here’s a guide so you choose the right opacity:
Blockout fabrics are perfect for privacy and complete light control. This type of fabric allows you to entirely blockout the outside light, as well as providing total privacy. They are best suited to rooms where complete light screening is top priority, such as a bedroom or media room.
This type of fabric softens harsh light, while providing daytime privacy. Translucent fabric allows natural illumination, creating a beautiful ambience. This fabric is perfect for kitchens and family rooms.
Sheer fabrics allow light to be diffused, while allowing you to enjoy the view. This is designed to stop glare but allow light in, where visibility is important.
Like Standard Crimsafe Security Doors, Crimsafe Bi-fold Security Doors feature the unique Crimsafe Tensile Tuff Security Mesh, which is manufactured from 304 Grade Stainless Steel. This mesh consists of strands that are 0.9mm thick, while other similar products use strands which are only 0.8mm thick.
This difference may not be visible to the naked eye, but this additional 0.1mm of thickness makes Crimsafe mesh 26.5% thicker at a cross section. This has a significant impact on strength and durability; making Crimsafe mesh much stronger than other meshes and ensuring it cannot be cut, kicked in or pried loose by potential intruders.
Crimsafe mesh also allows airflow throughout your home, and keeps intruders, pesky bugs and mosquitoes out! Coated with corrosion-resistant additives, Crimsafe mesh is easily cleaned and has a lifespan of approximately 65 years, meaning that you don’t have to worry about regular replacements and maintenance.
Crimsafe Bi-fold Security Doors also feature Crimsafe’s unique Screw Clamp System. Unlike other products where the mesh is merely glued or wedged into the frame, Crimsafe sandwiches the mesh between two serrated pieces of aluminium and then screws the mesh into place. This method results in a strong, vice-like grip which has a much stronger resistance to force than many other competing products. The Tensile Tuff Security Mesh and Screw Clamp System work together to provide incredible strength and eliminate the need for unsightly bars, ensuring your home’s curb appeal is not compromised.
Crimsafe Bi-fold Security Doors offer a stylish finish as well as the versatility of being able to stack the doors to the side when not in use. They are particularly effective when installed on doorways which lead to decks or terraces. Crimsafe Bi-fold Security Doors offer a perfect combination of practicality and style.
