Standard Venetian Blinds

Avaiable in 16mm, 25mm,35mm and 50mm wide venetian blinds have been revived! A recent upturn in sales is believed to be attributed to the classic style and look that these wider slats offer, the colour range (whilst limited) is aimed at those seeking a natural and simplistic look.

We only use the thickest aluminium slat available on the market, Hunter Douglas 23 grain slat thickness with a heavy solid bottom bars to prevent the blind from blowing and warping over time.

  • Slats can be angled to give total privacy. It is also possible to give privacy and allow light to come in.
  • Slats set at a certain angle will allow you see out, and stop people seeing in.
  • Light can be directed around a room to reduce glare in certain areas. For example, reducing the glare on TV and computer screens.
  • Blinds can be raised up to leave the window space clear and open.
  • Venetian blinds have a very small stacking depth even over long drops.
  • Lightweight and suitable for fixing to weaker materials such as plasterboard.
  • Can be ordered in a gloss or matt finish. A super-matt finish is also now available, giving a very soft look to even the largest blinds.
  • Hold down clips
    • Plastic hooks which secure the bottom bar in place when attached to doors or tilt windows.
  • Mixed slat combinations
    • A mixture of colours can be added into one blind.
The blind is raised and lowered by operating cords assisted by a tilt roll support and positive cord lock mechanism.

Tilt control is achieved with a transparent acrylic wand and geared tilter. Both controls can be located together or apart, at either end of the blind.

35mm and 50mm venetian blinds are always manufactured with a tilt CORD, and not a tilt wand as you may see on smaller slatted blinds. Generally, 35/50mm blinds are used for larger windows, and so create alot more friction when tilting the slats around. Plastic tilt wands tend to weaken over time, and break.

Should you require a tilt wand, we can manufacture it, but we don’t recommend it.
