5 Essential Features for Outdoor Balcony Curtains


Most balconies are usually left uncovered, left empty to have an open space. However, over time, balconies accumulate rainwater, fallen leaves, dust from construction sites, and even dead insects. To address the above situation, GLORY I'll show you an effective way to both create a cool and shaded space and shield against external factors. That's by installing outdoor curtains to block out these unwanted elements and avoid harsh sunlight glare.

However, not all types of outdoor balcony curtains are made equal. Here are four features that the product needs to have so you can turn your balcony into a play area for your kids or a small garden for yourself.

1. Durable Fabric Material

With vinyl polyester fabric Meteor®️ it has a 90% water resistance capability and blocks 99% of harmful UV rays from the sun. This not only helps protect your health but also keeps your balcony space cooler and more comfortable on hot sunny days.

The product is waterproof, so it can withstand rain, prevent dust, and keep insects from creeping into your balcony. Don't forget to pay attention to the fabric's "tightness." A 1% tightness means your fabric is woven tighter for maximum protection.

2. No Gaps

In addition to securing the curtains to prevent them from being blown away by wind or storms, installing fixed rods on both sides helps cover the gaps in between and prevents water from seeping through. Most outdoor curtains use a "zipper" system to guide the fabric along the rod, but this mechanism often leaves gaps that can catch dirt easily.

To ensure smooth and less wear-and-tear operation when raising and lowering, consider the operating system of the fixed rod. This mechanism serves a similar purpose to the "zipper" system but eliminates any gaps between the fabric and the rail.

3. Flexible Movement

Outdoor curtains are operated either manually or by a motorized system. If convenience is paramount, you can't overlook motorized curtains. But if you're considering your budget more, then manual curtains might be worth considering.

Most manual outdoor curtains are controlled via chains, ropes, or pulleys. Clearly, these aren't convenient if you have small children or pets. If you have large curtains, they can also be cumbersome to push up or pull down. An automatic system allows you to glide them up or down without breaking a sweat.

4. Not affected by strong winds

When you live near the coast or in high-rise buildings, the wind can be your biggest enemy. Outdoor curtains need to be made from durable materials capable of withstanding strong winds without tearing or damage. Curtains with sturdy frames and accessories will ensure they don't flip or roll when faced with strong winds. The Meteor® brand will provide you with a comfortable living space, protect you from weather elements, and contribute to the aesthetic beauty of your home.

5. Easy Cleaning and Maintenance

Since outdoor curtains often encounter dust and weather elements, they need to be easy to clean and maintain. Choose curtains that can be easily wiped clean or washed to keep them clean and in good condition.
