Looking For Extra Wide Blinds?

Firstly, what are extra wide blinds? Well if you have a large window or bi-fold door, such as those used in modern apartments, home extensions 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 spoil the contemporary look by using two or three separate blinds, for example in modern city apartments, offices, patio doors or bi-fold doors. Below, we will out-line your options for covering such large window openings.There are several types of blinds that are suited to extra wide applications, these are: 1. Roller Blinds, Electric Roller Blinds, Battery Operated Roller Blinds: Our roller blind table has the capability to manufacture blinds of up to 4m width. We have also sourced a range of specialist wide-width fabrics, which enables larger sizes to be manufactured without welded or stictched joins. 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. We have a range of options for control of extra-large electric roller blinds, such as handset, app control, voice activation and integration with smart home or building management systems. 2. Venetian Blinds - specifically those with aluminium slats, are perfect for extra wide windows, they are lightweight which allows them to be raised, lowered and tilted with ease.
