Outdoor Screens Come Into Their Own With Changing Seasons

  • Advice
- June 17, 2021

It’s finally getting warm enough to shrug off woollen coats, but that doesn’t mean it’s all sunshine and rainbows – or actually, it is, but only because New Zealand’s spring is an unpredictable mix of rain and shine! What we mean to say is it’s not time to start neglecting protection from the weather. Spring is a deceiving time because we often forget to protect ourselves from the sun, as we tend to associate sunburn with heat, and we leave umbrellas at home, connecting rain with grey skies.

Changing Seasons

Spring has arrived and the blooming season has begun, making it the perfect time to install an outdoor screen. Outdoor screens can protect you from harmful UV rays and ultraviolet radiation, rain, glare and dust. They also block heat and energy from the sun, keeping both you and your house cool, which in turn helps you keep those power bills low.

The sun may not be on full heat yet, but spring is the time when UV radiation increases rapidly, so skin that’s been covered up until now can get a shock from the sudden exposure. Investing in an outdoor screen is the smartest way to protect more in one go. The best thing is, you don’t have to sacrifice the view for protection from the elements. With a clear outdoor screen, no one will even know it’s there!
