The Coverland advantage

Coverland is a wholesale manufacturer only. If you wish to have a free measure and quote on a specific retail job, contact us and we will put you in touch with an appropriate company who can discuss options, installation details and pricing.

Coverland started business over 20 years ago as a manufacturer and designer of covers for the marine industry.

The extreme and ever-changing environment at sea meant that every PVC curtain had to be built tough: to survive whatever conditions the boat encountered at sea and protect the boat while moored in the open – 24/7.

Over the years the team at Coverland developed new production techniques and methods to meet the rigorous demands made on our product. The result was a material with a longer life that was capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions day after day, still as good as new many years after the
original installation.

10 years ago we took this knowledge and expertise and applied it to the challenge of producing clear PVC blinds for homes and businesses. Coverland was then and still is at the forefront of what is now an expanding industry.

Our range has grown to incorporate mesh materials such as VistaWeave and Soltis. Each material has its own special qualities to meet the needs of your home or business and the mesh range has proven to be as popular as the clear PVC blind variety.

Using these materials we have been making Rope and Pulley blinds and we now add the Ziptrak system to our range, once again staying on the forefront of technology, practicality and aestheics.

Why Blinds are Essential in the home

PVC blinds:

Are perfect for protecting outdoor areas from the wind and rain. They are an effective insulator and will retain heat even in the coldest weather.
The tough all-weather zips used to secure our blinds make sure no draught
gets through.

Clear PVC blinds enclosing a rear patio or veranda will save you money through the winter months by cutting the heating bill as they effectively lock in warm air and help insulate your home from the elements.

On warm summer days simply roll your blinds up and let the breeze in. On hot days, keep the blinds down to help insulate your home from the heat.

Protecting your outdoor area from the elements adds a great new entertainment area to your home that can be used all year round in any weather.

Mesh Blinds:

Let the breeze come in whilst screening the sun and harmful UV rays from your outdoor area.

Tough all-weather zips securing our mesh blinds on each side mean your entertainment area is effectively screened from the sun and insects, while still letting you enjoy the fresh air and the view.

Mesh blinds also offer privacy through the day: you can see out, but others
can’t see in.

The Best of Both:

PVC blinds are great insulators and protectors in winter and mesh blinds help you stay cool and sunsafe in summer – so why not have both?

Coverland has developed a combination, two-in-one blind where the mesh rolls outwards and the clear PVC rolls inwards. This versatility means you are covered for every imaginable weather condition and your patio is always safe and party-ready.

Reduce your heating bill and reclaim your outdoor area in one!

Construction and Materials

It can be misleading to trust in curtain and awning manufacturers when it comes to your outdoor products. They may look great but that’s no guarantee to withstanding tougher weather conditions. Nor do these manufacturers have a clue about the kinds of heavy-duty durable materials that are a necessity in the marine industry.

At Coverland we not only have access to those materials, but we know what to do with them. We know what years of weather can do, how it wears away at the joints and stitches in even the strongest covers over time and we do everything to prevent wear and tear and keep our product protecting you for years to come. We have done for over two decades.

Coverland’s clear PVC blinds: Use 1mm Japanese Quality Clear PVC – the same material used on our boat covers. This material is manufactured in Japan, specifically tailored for the outdoors. The PVC has inbuilt UV inhibitors, anti-stick and anti-static components to ensure it remains clear for many years.

Look closely at our blinds and you will find 24mm strong webbing sewn beside each zip. This webbing connects to a base bar of galvanized steel, which in turn is sewn to the fabric with supporting webbing.

Each blind comes with strong webbing hurricane straps – these secure the base bar to anchor points. In a strong wind, all this means that the force will be absorbed by the webbing and hurricane straps, and the most vulnerable part of the blind – the PVC and zips – will not bear any load.

Our clear blinds are sewn together using bonded polyester marine thread. This thread is UV stabilised and will not break down. The biggest mistake we see in other manufacturers’ awning and blinds is the use of weak thread that just isn’t built to handle years of exterior use – a perfectly good blind with years of use left will be left in tatters because of this.

Other manufacturers will also weld Coloured PVC together or attach PVC components to their clear PVC – this negatively impacts on the makeup of the PVC and causes it to stiffen and crack over time.

Rope and Pulley Blinds

Our traditional system for controlling the level of your blinds, it’s simple to use and easy to maintain. It suits areas where you may not have room above the blind to accommodate the roll.

Our new Ziptrak blinds work on a different system and offer a modern and ropeless look to your blinds. Click here for more information.
