I haven't but lots of my friends have and the product is good and when I have renovated my outdoor area I will be using them. Can't advise on type I am afraid as I haven't decided myself yet.

My friend has just installed the mesh type in a commercial environment and tells me they are amazing.
The mesh allows you to look out and allows the breeze to gently come through.... so on a hot day it shouldn't be too unbearable.

Good luck with your decision!

Allstruct blinds based in Hillarys, found to be far the cheapest quote we had. Think its a one man band and he certainly knows his stuff.

Not sure, best ask the company for pro's and con's of each. Mesh allows a very small amount of mist through when it rains, but not enough to worry about. We chose Mesh, partly because you can see out but not in. I'm not sure on this, but i think mesh has a better lifespan over clear due to the sunlight.

They are yet another thing in Perth which makes it really exciting as it's unknown in the East!

Regarding material we were very strongly advised against PVC as it ages poorly. It will scratch mark crinkle so not really clear, rain will mark it and it doesn't breath. Mesh all the IMO
