Perfect Light and Heat Control Back to top

Made to Measure Vertical blinds can give an ultra-modern look and feel to any room. Ideal for large windows for instance patio doors, vertical blinds are formed from strips of stiffened fabric with gliders that allow opening and closing along with the rotation of the individual strips. Chain and weights at the bottom of the fabric slats help to guide and position the blind, which can be removed for cleaning or replacement. A great solution for dressing any window where full privacy and sun light can be controlled by tilting the vertical slats into position.

As with several styles of blinds we sell at Poles & Blinds, these blinds can be used in most rooms. They are possibly more popular in dinning rooms, hallways. home office rooms and large conservatories. Once fully drawn, your blinds give full access to any doorway that hides behind when closed.
