Sales of Uni-Blinds® sealed units with integral blinds inside have risen by 32 per cent in the last 12 months – and remain the only blind system in the UK to include warm edge spacer bars as standard.
Ian Short, managing director of Uni-Blinds® manufacturer Morley Glass & Glazing says: “Fabricators and installers are recognising how the inclusion of dedicated warm edge spacer bars within Uni-Blinds® helps to upsell their windows and doors without compromising on thermal performance. Their customers can enjoy A rated energy efficient windows with integral blinds that help to reduce heat loss and improve a building’s energy performance.
“We know that homeowners increasingly understand the massive contribution that highly insulating windows and doors make to reducing energy bills and improving comfort. We fit the warm edge spacer bar across our integral blinds range to make compromise a thing of the past so customers can benefit from the privacy and aesthetics that Uni-Blinds® deliver.”
As Europe’s biggest fabricator of integral blinds using the market-leading ScreenLine® systems, Morley Glass & Glazing works closely with the Italian system’s manufacturer Pellini to accommodate warm edge spacer bars into its product range.
Ian adds: “The warm edge spacer bars that we use are similar to those used by the majority of sealed unit manufacturers serving the A and B rated windows and doors market. The added benefits of integral blinds, which are not adequately reflected by the Window Energy Rating (WER) scheme, are the extra layer of insulation along with the powerful solar shading to keep homes cooler during summer months. These added benefits are giving smart installers a great opportunity to enhance their window and door proposition, increase thermal efficiency and their profitability.”
The Uni-Blinds range provides the widest choice of integral blinds in double and triple glazed units, with all manual, solar and motorised versions available in the industry’s shortest lead-time of 10 days from any Friday.
Morley Glass & Glazing provides unrivalled technical support for Uni-Blinds® customers too, being the only UK supplier of integral blinds to have dedicated customer support engineers on the road. It also stocks the largest range of ScreenLine® system spare parts in Europe.
