Integral blinds to add that WOW factor to your self-build home

Posted on: 30 Jun 2014 | Posted in: News | Author: Admin

For that all important wow-factor in your new home Uni-Blinds integral blind systems from Morley Glass & Glazing offer many advantages over traditional window blinds.

Assembled and permanently sealed within the dust-free double glazing cavity, the blinds always appear new and require no cleaning. They can go almost unnoticed until they are activated manually or by remote control. That delivers great looking interiors with less clutter and uninterrupted sightlines. They provide maximum privacy, light and solar control. Choose from Venetian or pleated systems and a wide range of colours.

One specific area in which the use of Uni-Blinds are increasingly becoming viewed as the only viable option is with bi-folding doors – a stunning addition to any new-build property – but are equally suitable for conservatories, and doors and windows throughout the home.

And for that added touch of sophistication there is the new touch-swipe control pad for Uni-Blinds® integral blinds. The W-Swipe-System Touch Uni-Blind features a control unit that operates the opening, closing, raising and lowering of the integral blinds with a simple swipe – familiar to anyone using touchscreen tablets or smartphones. This is powered by a discreet solar panel mounted on the exterior frame or through rechargeable batteries – no hardwiring is needed so installation is easy with no electrician required.

Integral blinds are an innovative product and should be considered at the design stage when formal specification decisions are being made as they are cost comparative when fitted at the time of the initial window or door installation.

With today’s accent on improved insulation characteristics of double-glazing, the application of integral blinds can further improve the U-value performance of the window or door – with consequential savings on the heating and air-conditioning requirements. Blinds which are encapsulated within a double glazed unit will perform better than traditional blinds in terms of solar heat gain and shading characteristics. This is especially the case with Uni-Blinds thanks to the use of high performance solar-control glass from Glassolutions Saint-Gobain, to create the sealed unit.

Finally, a primary consideration of family living space must always be safety. As would be expected from the UK’s largest supplier of integral blinds all Uni-Blinds fully conform to the guidelines laid down by the British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) and none of the products are installed with free hanging cords.

Uni-Blinds sealed units are supplied in the same way as standard sealed units with just 10 day lead times and Morley Glass provides an excellent after sales service.
