Panel Blinds

European sales of Panel Blinds have always been high as they are a popular choice in both domestic and commercial installations, that said it's a different story in the UK, since its launch 10 years ago sales could only be described as mediocre at most. Panel Blinds are the most undersold and misunderstood product in the UK and the reason for this is possibly down to marketing and a lack of general information.

In this article we are going to talk in detail about this product, it's application and why you should consider using it, not just in the commercial market but also domestic especially with sales of Bi-fold doors booming.

Did you know that nine times out of ten a vertical blind is offered as a solution for Bi-Fold doors? It’s cheap, easy to fit and offers what your customer thinks is the only solution. Did you know that a Panel Blind can be fitted quicker? It also offers a high-end designer finish in keeping with the overall finish of the room and reflects the investment your customer has made.

Your customers are more demanding than ever these days and when it comes to major investments such as Bi-Fold Doors it is Panel blinds that offer a designer finish, not only do they look fantastic but they will become a focal point in the room.

They are energy efficient and child safe too. Energy saving Panel blinds reduce solar gain during the summer months and help insulate your home through winter which is something to point out to your customer with Bi-Fold doors having such an expanse of glass.

We all know that as children grow their curiosity does too, which is why we make child safety a priority. All blinds are designed to be inherently child safe and we recommend wand operation for panel blinds.

Panel Blinds also look stunning as a room divider that can be used to great effect in creating new living spaces within a modern home.

Visage Blinds

We are very excited to be launching Visage, a brand-new window blind that revolutionises the way light and privacy is controlled, bringing a soft and soothing ambience to a room. The beautiful and decorative Visage blind forms a superior window furnishing that brings a feeling of warmth and security into the home through its soft undulating design and unique operation.

Visage is made up of two layers of soft fabric connected by horizontal sheer vanes that gently filter sunlight whilst it maintains different levels of privacy and UV protection as the blind is raised or lowered. The blind can be fully raised to give a full outside view, it can be lowered with the sheer vanes aligned to control the light and retain a view with some privacy during the day, or it can be fully closed for total privacy in the evening.

Visage can also be motorised for your convenience with Louvolite One TouchTM battery operated motors, enabling your customer to adjust the blind at the touch of a button.

Visage blinds are finished off beautifully with the new 70mm Open Cassette available in White, Black or Anthracite. Coming in Spring 2017 will be the highly anticipated Anthracite colour. These beautiful headrails can be coordinating or contrasting to the fabric for a truly personalised window furnishing. The Visage blind fabric collection includes 4 ranges of luxury fabrics, colours and textures, all carefully created in order to complement any interior design. The collection is truly impressive and embraces current tastes and trends, making it a stylish addition to any room within the home.
