Will My Blinds Fade In The Sun?
Whilst it’s unlikely that your blinds will fade due to sun exposure, there is a risk that they may turn yellow over time – particularly if they are white.
Blinds not only look great but can also serve a broad range of practical uses such as maintaining your privacy and keeping out sunlight. However, taking the full force of the sun’s rays can leave its mark over time and cause certain types of blinds to turn yellow, no matter how much you’ve kept on top of maintenance.
Why do blinds turn yellow?
Blinds made from plastics, particularly PVC, are made up of composite materials comprising of a wide range of chemical components. All these different chemical components can react differently to UV exposure, and when exposed for a long period of time they can start to break down, resulting in a yellowish appearance.
This is most often a problem with cheaper blinds made from poor quality materials and without proper UV resistance. Our premium quality blinds are manufactured to be UV resistant, making them much more resilient and long-lasting in the face of sun exposure.
