Vinyl and PVC Blinds – What are the differences?

Nowadays, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking materials for our blinds. From wood and cloth, to aluminium and plastics, manufacturers adapt their blinds to all kinds of conditions. Whether renovating a sunroom, or shading a bathroom, finding the right blind for the job has never been easier. But this great range of materials can cause some confusion. One of the most common questions people ask, concerns the difference between vinyl and PVC blinds.

The Benefits of PVC Blinds

As it turns out, vinyl and PVC are not two completely different materials, but neither are they the same. Vinyl is an umbrella term used to cover a wide range of plastic materials. PVC stands for polyvinyl chloride. This means that we can consider PVC as just one kind of vinyl material.

Though PVC was first made by accident, it has become quickly adopted as a construction material thanks to its many strong properties. Often people will use the two terms, ‘vinyl’ and ‘PVC,’ interchangeably. This is because PVC is the most popular kind of vinyl material for construction projects. In fact, with the exception of certain films, paints and glues, when people refer to vinyl they quite often really mean PVC.

In recent years, PVC has become a particularly popular material for blinds. Firstly, PVC is strong and durable, this means it won’t warp like wood. It is also waterproof. This makes PVC blinds a great choice for rooms where condensation and water are to be expected, like bathrooms or kitchens. They are also simple to clean and resistant to mould, a wet cloth is enough to keep them spotless.

This combination of high strength and low maintenance continues to make PVC blinds a firm favourite with home and business owners.
