Vertical blinds are one of the most versatile types of sunscreening available, combining the aesthetic qualities of fabric blinds with the efficiency of louvres. The blinds offer a practical solution to the problems of heat gain and solar glare and can meet the requirements of the modern commercial environment.
The amount of light entering a room through the window is precisely controlled by the louvres, which can be rotated to any angle. The louvres can also be drawn back to one or both sides of the window, or stacked neatly in the centre when the blind is fully open.
In addition to the standard systems for rectangular windows, models are available with horizontally curved head rails for bay windows, vertically curved rails for special shaped windows and sloping rails for openings where the top is inclined.
Occupier comfort and safety are now standard requirements when considering solar shading solutions for commercial buildings. The louvres are available in 89 & 127mm widths and include a range of fabrics that offer:
- Flame retardancy.
- Antibacterial qualities for healthcare environments.
- Screen fabrics to filter glare performance
- Coated fabrics to reflect the heat.
- Dim out fabrics to exclude the majority of light.
- Rigid vinyl or aluminium louvres in both solid and perforated finishes.
