A gable – whether part of a conservatory or on its own – can be a very tricky area to fit blinds into. It used to be that in order to fit into the triangular shape you had to use a lot of smaller blinds, many of which had to be fixed in place and not retractable. This is why we created our pureaspect™ Gable Blind system, which is specifically designed to cover a gable shape with just a couple of blinds.
Most gables are in the same basic triangular shape, with the only real difference being the angles involves. It’s instances like these that our pureaspect™ Blinds really shine; covering the gable with just two blinds, that are neat enough to have a minimal gap between them so as much light is shaded as possible.
In some cases the gable shape may extend down below the basic triangle to create more of a ‘house’ shape. This extra space doesn’t mean that the blinds have to be any less neat, though, as our pureaspect™ Gable Blinds can extend to cover even that extra area, while still retracting away neatly.
There are a few occasions where we come across an unusually shaped gable, usually something where the shape is asymmetrical, where it is not possible to use the pureaspect™ blinds in the normal way. However we like these kinds of challenges as it lets us find creative solutions to the problem. In instances like those we are usually able to neatly fit blinds into the space, as we recently did with this unusually shaped gable:
In order to cover this shape we were able to use a series of smaller pureaspect™ gable blinds to neatly fit into the angles of the space. As you can see from the photo, we were still able to cover the entire area – with minimal gaps between blinds – using a combination of movable blinds and fixed infills.
So if you have a gable that needs blinds, even if it’s a large or unusual shape, you can arrange a meeting with a member of our sales team and see how we would neatly fit blinds into the space.
