Our vertical blind system is manufactured to the highest of standards and comprises a wheeled track or headrail which supports fabric slats of either 89mm or 127mm wide. Slats can be traversed to either or both sides as required and can also be rotated through 180 degrees allowing you to fully control both privacy and the amount of light coming through the window. Designed to be long lasting and maintenance free, vertical blinds are suitable for both domestic or commercial applications.
Our robust vertical blind system features an extruded aluminium track powder coated in white. The slim, elegant design measuring just 45mm x 25mm deep gives a more compact impression compared to other vertical blind systems. The value registered after extrusion is +1mm of thickness using 9006 alloy which provides excellent rigidity and strength enabling blinds to be manufactured up to 5000mm wide. A specially designed three prong tilt shaft ensures precision closing and rotation of the carriers. Carriers are made with acetal resins and nylon 6 to ensure UV resistance and incorporate a self aligning mechanism with limit stops to prevent over rotation. The self lubricated wheeled carriers glide smoothly along the track and are of reduced width allowing for better stacking of the blind when in the open position. A geared control unit allows for swift and easy operation even on the largest of blinds. End caps at either end of the track enclose all working parts and support the tilt shaft and blind controls. The headrail, fixing brackets, end caps, cords and ballast weights are finished in white. Fabric slats are sewn using a nylon bonded thread which does not perish in direct sunlight unlike other methods such as gluing or bonding which are prone to failure. All other plastic parts such as weights and hangers are made from prime grade thermoplastics.
Blinds are manually controlled with a cord pull and beaded chain tilter which can be positioned either on the left or the right hand side of the blind. The white stretch resistant polyester pull cord has a nylon core for strength.
The ceiling side of the track has a specially designed channel to allow for perfect fixing with every type of bracket. A wide selection of fixing brackets are available including face, top and side fix versions allowing for trouble free installation to virtually every location.
All fabrics within our extensive range have been specifically designed for vertical blinds. A full range of colours and styles including woven, printed, jacquard and plain is available to suit any specification or requirement. Also we do a large range which can be machine washed. Rigid p.v.c slats are one of our new additions which are robust and long lasting, these do not need stabilising chain at the bottom and are easily rubbed down with a cloth making them ideal for homes which have pets. All contract fabrics are flame retardant and many feature solar protective, dimout or blackout properties.
