The turbulent British weather means that we must always be prepared for adverse conditions even at the height of summer – whether it’s keeping the heat out or adding extra thermal protection in winter.
External screen blinds are designed to be energy efficient allowing you to save money on your heating bills while keeping your home cool in summer. They fix onto the outside of your window, designed to face the elements rather than the usual internal roller blinds. These can be used alongside internal blinds to give you an extra level of UV protection, and up the energy efficiency of your home.
With designs which are suitable for all outside spaces, and with remote control options available, homeowners can now take advantage of extra external protection at their windows.
*At Feran, we prioritise functionality and safety, which is why every blind made by Feran complies with the latest child safety laws and regulations. All our blinds are designed with the safety of children in mind, with cordless and motorised options also available.
One of the main benefits of these blinds is their energy efficiency. External Screen blinds can help block out 30-80% of UV rays. They prevent your interior from overheating with the additional benefit of energy saving as there is less reliance on cooling systems such as air conditioning and fans.
Along with the extra privacy these blinds provide, they also offer a level of protection to your interior space, helping to prevent furniture fading, and further help to shield from any sun damage. External screen blinds also allow you complete light control, by raising and lowering the screen you can influence the amount of incoming light into a room.
The screens come in a variety of styles, colours and materials, so here at Feran we can help you choose a perfect solution that perfectly complements the look of your home.
Our external screen blinds are simple to operate and come in two systems.
- The RS Classic system is distinguished by a box with side guide rails, which allows the blind to travel up and down seamlessly. The fabric is integrated with a PVC or fibreglass fabric which is durable and resistant to weather conditions such as wind, hail, or rain so you can rest assured about the strength these blinds can take when faced with the elements. These can be operated with motorisation, or manually by crank operation.
- The RS Smart screen system is compact, allowing you to hide the bottom strip in the box. It also allows more light to enter when fully opened, compared to other external screen blinds. This system also features PVC or fibreglass fabric, which is extremely durable against any weather and runs on side guide rails. The smart screen can only be operated via motorisation.
And it doesn’t end there. We know that any structure needs to fit with the aesthetic of your home and garden, which is why we offer such a wide range of external screen blinds in different colours and fabrics, with options to suit every space.

From selecting the material to the installation of the system and curtains, Feran’s staff were fantastic. Professional and courteous experience and would highly recommend.
Can’t give enough praise to this company, lovely showroom with superb selection of fabrics for Curtains and Blinds. Jeff the owner and daughter Leah were so helpful and friendly, I must of spent hours trying to choose which fabric, they were very patient, and helped me make decisions. I ordered curtains for the whole house, and the quality and way they were made were outstanding. Jonathan who did the fitting was very professional, and left no mess, and did an excellent job. Everyone that visits asks where I got my curtains. I would highly recommend this company.
Sorry its taken a while to write the review. But Feran are super. They were quick taking in to consideration our circumstances (no curtains at all and a new born baby to try and get to sleep!!). They were fantastic. Also being an Apex window, it was even more technical, but they made it look easy. Thank you Feran.
Curtain making excellence and great customer service. The team at Feran understand the fabrics they are using and have the skills and attention to detail to create outstanding curtains. Highly recommended and we wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
We had 3 sets of curtains made and fitted by Feran – the quality of the fabric and the finish of the curtains is excellent – they look great!
The quality and range of fabrics at Feran in Chelmsford is second to none. The personal service and finished product both in curtains and blinds is excellent. The shop also made me a matching cushion with the spare material free of charge which was a lovely bonus.
An excellent family run business. Very helpful, efficient and polite. The curtains are exactly as we wished and truly enhance the room.
We recently purchased an awning from Feran. We were very pleased with the service they provided; they were always happy to help and quick to respond. We also found the team that installed the awning friendly and it looks well finished.
