Create more privacy and a cosy atmosphere in a quick and affordable way with our Wicker Roller Blinds.
Our Wicker Roller Blinds are made of sturdy saltwater reeds tied together with black palm rope. This construction allows you to easily roll up and unroll the blinds to the desired height. As reed is a light material, these blinds remain easy to operate even for wider windows and do not become too heavy.
The light natural color of wicker looks great in any interior. Wicker blinds can also be used outdoors as sun protection for the veranda, canopy, conservatory or summerhouse. You can unroll the blinds completely during the day to block the heat, or open them halfway to reduce the amount of sunlight in your eyes.
Bear in mind that outdoor use, especially rain, may shorten the life of the blinds. Wicker roller blinds should never be rolled up wet. This may cause mildew.
When used indoors, no further maintenance is required. If you want to use the Wicker Roller Curtain outdoors, you can treat it with our Bamboo Booster Oil. This applies a protective layer to the wicker, making it less susceptible to outside influences.
You can easily applyBamboo Booster Oil. several times a year with a Maintenance Cloth for optimal results. When doing so, use thin layers and spread the oil well.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
