Gable Blinds For Large Apex Windows

Gable Blinds For Large Apex Windows

Posted: 15 Jan 2022

Large Apex Windows can be a beautiful addition to a home as they provide expansive views and allow for natural sunlight to brighten a room during clear days. Installing an Apex Window can also increase the overall value of your home, especially with the right Gable Blinds.

However, they also have their flaws:

  • Glare
  • Heat Build-Up
  • Lack of privacy

The Problem: Large Apex Windows


Recently, a customer of ours in Farnham, Surrey had a large area of glazing in his bedroom. The property was a barn conversion with beautiful views of the country. The windows themselves were very large and featured a large apex shape at the top which some companies struggle to fit blinds onto.

It looked stunning, but they suffered from intense glare from the bright sunshine and this woke them up most mornings. Additionally, they wished for privacy within the bedroom which is hard to achieve with a large window such as this. So, this is where we can lend a hand.


The Solution: Gable Blinds for Your Large Apex Windows


For this, we would recommend two large pureaspect™ Gable Blinds for the large apex windows; using Duette® fabrics to help with privacy. Originally designed for gables in conservatories, our unique pureaspect™ gable blinds are perfect for large apex windows. We have continuously improved our system to allow us to fit blinds that cover the triangular shape and extend down. This means that we can cover an entire area with just two blinds to achieve that neat look. They are designed to retract away as neatly as possible and in the above photo, the blinds are retracted away with minimal obstruction of the view.

The sleek and elegant design of the pureaspect™ Gable Blinds and Duette® fabric fits perfectly into the modern décor of the room. We were able to go the extra mile and have the components of the blinds, the blind rails, and the fixings, powder-coated to match the colour of the window frames. The Gable Blinds look like a natural addition to the room as if they had always been there.

Customer reviews

I was given excellent advice and information and was able to discuss exactly what I wanted. The blinds were very well fitted and I'm delighted with how they look and how they operate. They are exactly what I had envisaged.

We have recently had blinds fitted to our conservatory roof and wish to let you know how pleased we are with the blinds themselves, the overall service and fitting by Craig Rowbotham. We had a couple of difficult sections to cover and Craig spent a lot of time ensuring that the finished product would look as good as the rest of the blinds.
Craig was pleasant to deal with, kept us informed of fitting schedule, left the premises clean and tidy.
We would certainly recommend your company again especially as we had another company's quote and theirs were over £1000 more expensive and the blinds weren't as nice as yours.

We are very pleased with our conservatory blinds and also with the excellent service provided by Greg; the salesperson. The blinds were expertly fitted by Jon and you were very helpful in arranging a convenient time to fit them.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to friends and family.
