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.

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.

New! Harrier Easy Fit Disposable Cubicle Curtains!

One of the latest additions to our product range are the new Harrier Easy Fit disposable cubicle curtains, an innovation aimed at slashing curtain replacement times by up to 80%, and therefore reducing costs. The key difference between standard disposable cubicle curtains with eyelets and the new Easy Fit disposable cubicle curtain, is the “Easy load glider” – which as you will see from the image below is a hanger that is built into the curtain and is used as an alternative to cubicle curtain hooks. The Easy load glider, loads directly into the Curtain Hook Removal point – which are now a standard feature of many cubicle tracking systems. The Movatrack system is a perfect example of this.

What are Perfect Fit Blinds?

Perfect Fit blinds are the revolutionary new type of blind for uPVC windows, doors and conservatories. Manufactured by Louvolite, Perfect Fit blinds are so neat they become part of your window frames. Launched in 2005 they have now become Louvolite’s top seller. The blinds require no drilling as they clip directly onto the window. Once the clips are in place a frame is added which holds the blinds. The frames come in a range of colours including white, brown, anthracite grey, golden oak and mahogany to match your window frames & sills which gives the effect that it is part of the window. Fitting takes around 30 seconds and requires no expertise to fit. This makes perfect fit blinds great for people who don’t have a D.I.Y. enthusiast around the house and those who live in an area where NewBlinds.co.uk cannot come out and install your blinds.

Insect Screens – What IS an Insect Screen?

I guess, like many people, eleven years ago I had no idea of the importance in the World's economic merry-go-round of a product that existed to keep flies out of a room. Out of your kitchen, out of your house, out of your life. Of course I had seen the old swinging screen insect screen doors on American movies. But I had never experienced the tranquil feeling they give to the dwellers inside. Protecting them from the misery of mosquitos and the like. There weren't any similar conditions where I came from and never have been and never will be. Will there?
