Just How Neat Are Our Obtuse Blinds?
Modern conservatories often have complex roof designs resulting in an obtuse triangle, where the angle exceeds 90°. Roof blinds normally need to be made so that the base rail and moving rail are perfectly parallel, which results in a fixed triangular infill and an extra rail across the glass.
Our uniquely designed obtuse blinds can avoid the need for any infills and, with the right fabric selection, can retract almost as flat as standard blinds in many conservatories. Plus, because our shaped roof blinds can be made to the narrowest top apex width, they cover much more of the glass when extended.
But what about when the blinds are retracted?
Is it possible to explain exactly how they will look when retracted?
Because there are so many variables that affect the resultant stack depth of a shaped blind, especially an obtuse triangle, it is not possible to predict the stack depth with any accuracy.
Factors affecting appearance of an obtuse blind:
Only manual pure™ Pleated Blinds avoid the need for a fixed infill. Infills for motorised blinds are required when the angle is sufficient to cause drag on the operating cords of the blind and where there is enough of an angle to introduce an 11mm thick common joining rail (to which we fit fabric infill).
This varies with blind width x drop, as well as being subject to the exact angle, so there is no way to accurately predict when this occurs. As a very rough guide we would expect a fixed infill to be required on a motorised blind over 2m long and exceeds 93°.
Nevertheless, the fact remains that our obtuse blinds are far neater and much, much less obtrusive than any other pleated blinds sold in the UK.
