In this post, I will be explaining the difference between commercial roll shade screens and patio roller shades. Generally, the difference between commercial roller shades and Patio roller Shades are the components. Commercial roller Shades have components like your clutch and your chain and your fabric that are made to be exposed to the Sun. Made to withstand the exterior elements. Like outside, you have a lot of moisture so you don’t want working within the clutch that will Rust.

These are some examples of some commercial roll shade screens Austin TX installations. These are examples using the black commercial roll shade screen fabric.
The pull chains for these commercial roll shades screens are made of plastic.

For patio roller shades Austin TX, we use stainless steel pull chains. The stainless steel pull chains are very heavy duty, and we can use them for your commercial roller shades as well. The reason why you would want to use them for a commercial roller shade is for strength. If your commercial roller shades are going to be in a high-traffic area. If they are going to be in an area where they get pulled up and down quite often. And you worry about the people doing the pulling being heavy-handed, then a stainless steel pull chain would be a good idea.
We use stainless steel pull chains for our Austin Texas patio roller shade installs, because they are strong. When we install our stainless steel pull chains we do so as a continuous loop. We do not use chain connectors. We actually open up one of the beads and put the male end into that bead and then close it. This makes a continuous loop.

Our Austin TX patio roller shades are not only for your back patios, but that can be used for your doors as well. We quite often do patio roller shade Austin TX installs for people where we will put the roller Shades in front of their front door.
If a front door is west-facing, that front door can get hot. Shading it with one of our external roller Shades will keep the front door from getting hot.
Securing exterior patio roller shades.
You do not want your exterior patio roller Shades to blow in the Wind. We want your exterior patio roller Shades to be secured. We secure our exterior patio roller shades with bungee cord tie downs. These budget core tie-downs allow for the shade to be able to move. To be able to sway. You want the exterior patio roller shades to be able to sway. You want them to be able to move some.
Commercial roller Shades do not have these tie downs. Commercial roller shades are not outside and subjected to the wind, therefore they do not need the tie downs. Only exterior patio roller Shades need securing like this.
