If you are investing in aluminium bi-fold or sliding patio doors, one set of accessories you might like to add to the design are integrated blinds.
What are these? Rather than fitting on the outside of your doors, integrated blinds are built into the glazing between the panels of glass. It’s a design that looks fantastic and is easier to maintain than external blinds.
Not only do they give you control over the amount of light you get in your room and improve privacy, but integrated blinds also provide a little extra insulation. That means your energy efficiency will be improved, and that may well lower your utility bills.
What Are Integrated Blinds?
Our aluminium bi-fold and sliding doors can be delivered with our Integrated Blind System installed. Sealed within the window, these remain dust-free forever and can be operated by using a magnetic slider to lift or tilt the blinds.
If you have kids, you may be worried about having cords hanging from your door frames – there’s no such problem here, and the installations meet all the current requirements of the BBSA. With external blinds, you also have the problem of them becoming damaged or twisted. There’s no such issue with integrated blinds.
You don’t have to do anything with these blinds – they sit in perfect condition throughout the lifetime of your sliding or bi-fold doors, and you never have to clean them.
The slider for the integrated blinds is also treated with Santized patented antibacterial finish, which prevents cross-contamination of bacteria and germs, no matter who uses it. You can opt for a range of 10 different colours for the integral blinds. The slide guide and headrail, as well as the slider, come in 4 different colours. That gives you lots of choices to find a product that perfectly suits your home.
