Hey Folks, literally I have dilema. In our outdoor pergola we used outdoor curtains to protect the furniture and staff inside against sun and water,like you can see on the picture (illustration photo) but its really windy here and i need to keep the curtains closed... And thats huge problem. First i thought, that i can sew some strings to the corners, and than it will be fixed, but the surface of curtains is too big aand the wind maybe to strong, so it teared after first day... Do you have any idea how to fix it better? Thank you for any solution. Joey

    Wind will always be a problem for outside areas. Sewing, bolting or tying down will only result in damage. The wind needs to be able to blow through then it will lose it's strength. Having small eyelets put into the curtains at regular intervals will help.

    This won't be a small amount of work, but if you can sew a pocket into the bottom of each panel you can insert a row or line of ball bearings to give them more weight.

    Knowledge and historical experience of how our deigns actually function in their environment is so important to client satisfaction. I once had a similar dilemma with an open porch which was oriented at the end of a long field, the wind was so strong it would move their wrought iron furniture. I was concerned the new porch I was designing would blow over like an umbrella, I calculated for the wind load effect. In retrospect understanding your problem now, I was wondering if you could add the similar detail to the bottom of the drapes as to the top with a rod and eyelets, could that be an option? Or are drapes to light of a material for the conditions?
