When choosing a fabric for your outdoor roller blind, it is important to pay attention to its’ translucency factor (percentage of visibility through the outdoor roller blind fabric, which depends on the type of threading used, not on its’ colour). The bigger value of translucity factor, the less sunlight can pass through.
