Cafe Blinds Frequently Asked Questions

What type of Clear PVC do you use?

We are very particular and will only source our clear PVC from one company.  It is Japanese film, they make the best film in the world.  It is by no means the cheapest film we can source but it is the best.

What thickness and Grade?

We use 0.75mm Film, it is always 1st grade.  We have experience in using 1mm and 2mm films for commercial jobs on gearbox and motorized blinds.  We consider these heavier films to be overkill and they make the blinds harder to roll up.  Thicker films add considerably to the price as well.  The industry standard is 0.75mm.

How are the blinds secured to my structure?

We attach aluminum sail tracking to the top beam and side posts.  We can attach to timber, metal and masonry.  We have trouble attaching to thin air so we  may need to have the structure modified to suit the product.  We can arrange this.

Why use 50mm bottom tube instead of 20mm?

50mm is stiffer, the blind rolls up smoother on it, and it gives the blind a better life span.

Do you powder coat your sail tracking?

Yes we powder coat all the aluminium sail tracking standard in the price.  Some companies will charge up to $5 a metre of this - so beware.  Our standard colours are Smooth Crème, Caulfield Green, River gum green, Slate Grey, White, Heritage Red and we have a non powder coated anodized mill finish (silver in other words).

Will you blinds go yellow and brittle?

Japanese film does not go yellow and brittle, we have been using the same supplier for 6 years and are happy to say that we have not had any blinds yellow or go brittle.

 do you have Clear, Tint or solid colours?

We offer both the tint is more expensive  Tint helps cut down the light passing through. Solid PVC (Full Block out) colours can be used for the total blind or part. Standard Colours are Ivory (Crème), Maroon and Dark Green. Non standard colours are additional, the non standard colours are teal, dark blue, black, gold, white, light blue and red.

Can I put a doorway in my blind?

Doorways can be put in the blinds . Doorways are charged per zipper. A doorway with one zipper shares the zip on the side of the blind. A doorway with two zippers is cut into the main body of the blind.

Is the any cost difference if you are installing on wood, metal or masonry structures?

Generally we charge the standard installation price but we reserve the right on site inspection to charge additional for difficult work e.g. Structural steel and structural concrete. Very high jobs may also involve a scaffolding cost.

Can I get Pulley kits?

Pulley kits can be added to any blind. They add to the ease of rolling the blind up and down. Customer should be informed about two rope that obstruct vision.

Do I need Council Approval

No council approval is needed for domestic installation of this product. Some commercial jobs on street fronts may need to go through council.  We can help with this process.  Commercial jobs may need to be approved in some council areas.

One of my areas slopes, can you handle this?

We can make the blinds to suit sloping rooflines. There is an additional cost and we will need to inspect and measure the site.
