Vertical Conservatory Blinds
Vertical blinds can be either the cheapest way of covering wide areas of glass, or a stylish design feature.
Child-safe vertical blinds with no looped cords and a range that transcends the 'cheap and cheerful' blinds that you can buy elsewhere, creating a uniquely contemporary style that sets you apart.
Although vertical blinds are best-suited to very wide a reas of rectangular glazing of the same height, we also provide shaped blinds for the side windows of lean-to conservatories, without the louvres falling back against gravity like they do with cheap systems.
The control wand replaces the need for a cord to pull them open or a chain to tilt the louvres, which makes them much safer for young children and perts, but we do warn that the connecting chains between louvres can still get entangled - so we would remind everyone that vertical blinds are not intended for conservatories.
Vertical blinds are best when recess fitted into very wide openings where there is rarely a need to access opening windows or doors but, when recess-fitted, they tend to take up your window cill and sway in the wind.
Surface mounted vertical blinds in UPVC conservatories have to be fitted in front of the projecting handles, so they can often make your consrevatory feel smaller. Also, because they need to be overlapped into corners, they can result in annoying gaps.
We do not recommend vertical blinds over doors or windows that are used frequently.
