HelioScreen External Blinds and External Screens
Helioscreen offers a wide range of external sun control systems to complement every external façade. Our Outdoor Blinds / External Blinds and External Screens are designed to take the toughest of treatments by reducing the sun’s penetration and absorbing the heat. Designed to control the entry of natural light, heat and sun radiation from the outside, Outdoor Blinds and External Screens allow you to extend outdoor living areas while maximising the advantages of glass and view from the inside. Unaffected by extreme temperature changes, Outdoor Blinds and External Screens operate using discreet stainless steel side cables or sleek aluminium side channels, powder coated to suit any exterior. Helioscreen’s external fabrics, Helio86, Helio93, and X-Screen come in a wide range of colourways and are anti-static for easy cleaning. External screens can be manually operated or motorised by Somfy and come with quality and performance warranties.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Regular inspection and cleaning of any external awning or roller shutter is important and highly recommended, with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and mild soapy water. It is important to remove any salt residue, gum and tannins that may drop from trees or any other residue spills, as these may contain corrosive properties. Stainless steel, aluminium and powder coat finishes can be affected by salt air conditions, where corrosion can build up on these surfaces, so regular cleaning is critical to achieving the maximum lifespan from your awnings. In high salinity areas, it may be necessary to clean and maintain shutters every 2-4 weeks. When cleaning, ensure water doesn't enter any enclosed pelmet areas that may contain electronic motors or parts as this may damage the motor and/or other components within the pelmet. We don't recommend the use of grease or regular lubricants, as these will attract dust and grit, which increases wear and tear. Instead, we recommend the use of a dry silicone lubricant only. If these things are not followed, you may be shortening the lifespan of your new products and voiding your manufacturers warranty.
