Obtuse Angled Roof Blinds
Although we offer by far the neatest manual obtuse roof blinds, when it comes to motorised obtuse blinds there are few options other than having the motor base rail fitted across the rafters.
We have had to cancel an order when a customer insisted that they weren’t aware of this, so we are taking steps to ensure that this kind of information is even more prominent. Of course it is impossible to legislate for every eventuality and for all people, but we can see a need to raise the point again.
At least this happened at survey stage where we go through the entire order again with the customer and define the specifications. In our experience most (all?) companies selling blinds would never risk losing an order and would have just made the blinds, knowing that they have the law on their side if it came to it.
So many salespeople are out there selling blinds nowadays and yet so few seem to have any real product knowledge whatsoever. We regularly hear of this and often find that people confuse who said what.
Obtuse roof blinds are required where the conservatory has been constructed with rafters that lean backwards, so instead of having a right angled triangle, the corner angle is greater than 90 degrees.
This particular customer had glazing with angles as great as 119.7 degrees (nearly 30 degrees past vertical) which is very steep indeed.
Our manual obtuse blinds retract so much neater than any other blinds because of the way that they are designed and built, as well as using fabric that stacks so much less than others. In some cases our blinds retract back 8x thinner than many others!
But a motorised blind requires the top moving rail and the fixed base rail (with the motor inside it) to be exactly parallel. That means for the blind to be operational, the shaped area at the base of the blind requires a triangular infill. Most blind companies have to do this even for manually operated obtuse blinds because the blind system was simply not intended for complex conservatories.
In most cases we recommend manual obtuse blinds because we know that we can make them so much neater. In fact with short roof blinds where the angle is not that high, they are not that much different from regular shaped blinds.
Other options exist, for instance you can alter the blind layout so that you have one big blind covering two or more panes of glass – this can sometimes avoid the need for any obtuse blinds at all, but this is subject to your exact conservatory.
