Are Perfect Fit Blinds suitable for Bi-Fold Doors?

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.

Anti Ligature Products from Newblinds.co.uk

At Newblinds.co.uk, we offer a range of anti-ligature devices. Anti ligature products are specifically designed to reduce the risk of self harm. The main application is in psychiatric wards of general hospitals and prisons where the risk of self harm is higher than usual. Our anti-ligature products feature a patented state of the art magnetic suspension system which utilizes the power of magnetic brackets to install objects which may present a risk of ligature. When substantial weight is put on these objects (around 20kg) the force of the magnets is overpowered and the connection breaks. Once the problem is resolved the magnets can be easily connected again.

There has been an explosion of low cost home automation technology recently, as big and smaller players and new entrants hussle for position in what seems certain to be a serious growth market over the next few years.

Today, I took a live chat enquiry from a customer who is interested in controlling their blinds with Amazon Echo. As a titan of the ecommerce and technology world - you can't help but take Amazon seriously with this venture into home control, and artificial inteligence. It's a voice activated speaker-come-home-control hub which not only plays music from your favourite music apps, but integrates and controls other devices and services from the "Internet of Things" - Philips Hue, Hive, Netatmo, Nest, tado°, Uber to name a few. Your wish is its command.. you just have to overcome a slight sense of self consciousness and ask! So the burning question...
