I make my custom-manufactured manual patio solar blinds here in Austin TX. My shop is located at 183 & Burnet Rd in North Austin. I sell my patio blinds as an installed service, homeowner self-install DIY, and wholesale (resale) for contractors.
You can get to my DIY Roller Shade Screens here. This is my HobbsScreens.com Roller Shade Screens DIY page, where you order roller shade screens for patios and commercial use.
My patio roller shades are manual controlled. You roll the shades up and down by means of a stainless steel pull chain. The pull chain wraps around a geared clutch.
The geared clutch will keep the solar patio blind from unrolling. From rolling off of the tube the fabric is rolled around. You can pull on the fabric and it will not unroll off of the tube.
This does not mean that you can leave the patio blinds down all the time. Solar patio blinds are meant to be rolled down when you need them and rolled back up when you do not. This way the wind does not damage the geared clutch.
Pricing for my locally made Austin TX installed patio blinds is posted on my website.
Visit this section of my website that goes over how far to drop your patio shade.
Manual Patio Solar Blinds for DIY, self installation
If you would like to save on the installation cost, or you live outside of my installation, you can buy my exterior patio shade screens for self installation.
If you are a contractor or a reseller, I sell my patio shades at wholesale pricing with an approved wholesaler account.
