Blinds for Bi-Fold Doors - Perfect Fit Suitability Blog

11
Mar
We are often asked if Perfect Fit Blinds are suitable for aluminium bi-fold doors or aluminium window frames. These stunning no-drill bead-fit blinds by Louvolite are more commonly associated with PVCu windows, doors and conservatories.

However, it's a little known fact that they can be installed on aluminium bi-fold doors too. In fact, the recently launched anthracite grey frame colour is a popular colour with buyers of aluminium door and window systems making Perfect Fit, the Perfect Match!

Below are the points that you should check to see if your frames are compatable.
1) Are your bi-fold doors or window frames double glazed?
2) Are they internally beaded?
3) Is the seal between the beading and the glass made of rubber?
4) Is your bead depth, 18mm or more?


If the answer to these questions is YES, then Perfect Fit Blinds should be compatible with your aluminium folding doors or windows, but it would also be useful to check the following:

5) Will the Perfect Fit frame prevent your door system from folding properly?
6) Is it possible to slide the brackets between the glass and the seal?


In terms of point 5, you may find that Perfect Fit Roller blinds in particular have a fascia that is slightly too bulky, and you may be better selecting the pleated or venetian version which have a slimmer profile frame all of the way around the blind If you wish, we can send you a sample of the frame profile and a test bracket. So you can check both. Simply email us and we'll send you samples. You can also down load the technical specification of the Perfect Fit System from the "documents" section at the bottom of each fabric page.

You can buy Perfect Fit Blinds online at Newblinds.co.uk, in a range of blind types, and frame colours, including the new Anthacite Grey frame - a colour, which is extremely popular with aluminium windows and bi-fold doors. Simply click here of follow the link above to view our range.

Controlling Blinds with Samsung Smartthings

We're being asked rather a lot at the moment if it's possible to control our blinds using Smartthings by Samsung. Smartthings is a low(ish) cost home control system that is possible to configure yourself to control a number of compatible devices within the home. It is exclusively distributed through Amazon and Currys/PC World. It uses z-wave technology, but doesn't appear to support a great number of other products "out of the box". Therein lies the problem!
