Looking For Extra Wide Blinds?

Firstly, what are extra wide blinds? Well if you have a large window, such as those used in modern apartments or office buildings, then you will have experienced the problems of trying to find a suitable window covering.

Extra wide blinds are extremely useful when you need to cover wide expanses of glass but you do not want to ruin the contemporary look by using two or three separate blinds, for example in modern city apartments, offices, patio doors or bi-fold doors.

There are three types of blinds that are best suited to extra wide applications, these are:

1. Aluminium Venetian Blinds are perfect for extra wide windows, they are lightweight which allows them to be raised, lowered and tilted with ease.

2. Vertical Blinds are great for windows where you have a view or patio doors, as they can be drawn to one side when you don’t want to use them.

3. Panel Blinds are a modern, striking and very fashionable alternative, with a huge range of fabrics and colours available for you to choose from. We have also experienced our customers using panel blinds as innovative and extremely stylish room dividers - they look stunning!

4. Roller Blinds - our roller blind table has the capability to manufacture blinds of up to 4m width. We can in some circumstances, fabric dependent, manufacture wider than that. We would suggest a roller blind of this size should be automated for ease of use - like the one we installed for the Restoration Man TV show, shown below.

Below is a list of the maximum sizes for each type of blind we offer - sizes are width first….

To purchase any of our extra wide blinds simply visit the appropriate section of our website, choose your fabric and colour then enter your sizes for an instant quote.

It is quite often the case that, at the widest widths, we have to make special arrangements with our freight agents to transport the blinds, which makes it difficult to offer 'live' prices online. So if you cannot price a blind in the size that you are looking for, please contact us by email, live chat or by calling 0161 494 9616.

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!
