Panel Blinds

Panel blinds use large fabric panels to provide shading and privacy, making them ideal for large windows or even as room dividers.

Panel blinds consist of a headrail featuring multiple running tracks which is typically secured to a ceiling or internal lintel. Wheeled travellers sit within the running tracks and carry fabric bars to which fabrics and other substrates can be attached. The width of the fabric bars and fabric panels vary to satisfy the overall width of the blind and the number of panels selected.

A panel blind is particularly well suited to cover larger areas of glass or to divide a space up into smaller spaces by acting as a room divider. The panels bunch to either side or can be bunched evenly to both sides. Typically a wand or a corded system can operate a panel glide although electrical operation is also possible.

Fabrics

A wide variety of fabrics and woven wood products can be fitted to the headrail systems used with panel blinds. Woven, knitted or non-woven fabrics may be used as the base cloths and specialist coatings are applied to endow the fabrics with performance features to suit a wide variety of applications. Such features can include finishes such as solar protective coatings (for improved solar and optical performance and glare control) and flame retardant coatings. Totally opaque fabrics are available in a variety of substrates to satisfy circumstances where this feature may be required including dim out and black-out qualities. Screen or mesh fabrics can be used allowing a defined openness factor for increased privacy and glare control whilst still retaining a degree of view for the operator during the daylight hours.

Components:

End Cap
