Northwest Bifolds are you local bifolding door specialists. We offer a wide choice of bifolding doors from the leading names such as Origin, Schuco and Frameless Glass Curtains.
One of the many reasons people are now choosing bifolding doors for their homes is how the large glass panels let in lots of natural light and provide excellent views out of the room.
However, privacy may also be an issue for some homes. Perhaps your house is a terraced property or one that has it’s garden overlooked by other houses. What can you do to when you still want to enjoy the excellent views offered by your bifolding doors but also provide privacy and shade when required? Our integral blinds provide a solution.
Integral blinds for bifolding doors.
There are of course options in the form of fabric blinds. For this particular product we offer the market leading Origin blind that complements not only the Origin bifolding door but is also suitable for any other type of bifolding door.
But if you still want to keep the clean contemporary lines of your bifolding doors whilst at the same time having flexible and controllable privacy and shading, integral blinds may be the right product for you.
What are integral glass blinds?
Integral blinds are a sophisticated product whereby the blind slats are housed between the two panes of glass on your double glazed units.
By far the biggest advantage of this is that they are permanently hidden within the hermetically sealed unit and this brings many advantages:
- Integral glass blinds will not obscure the clean lines and aesthetics of your new doors.
- They are permanently sealed between the glass therefore will not attract dust and will never need cleaning.
- They are available as manual, automatic or even solar controlled.
- A choice of colours is available just like your new aluminium doors.
- They can be fitted to any door or window, not just a bifolding door.
- They can even open and close via timers or light sensors.
Tips and advice from Northwest Bifolds.
As with any advanced product, quality is key. There are many of these integral glass blinds on the market and all of these vary in quality and type.
Our blinds as one example when manually operated work with discreet magnets. Other types of blinds you will find work with visible cords and pulls. In our view the magnetic operated blinds are far superior and over time are more reliable especially if you have young children.
However we do believe these are the most effective way to complement the clean lines and beautiful appearance of your new bifolding doors without having to cover them up with fabric, roller or venetian blinds.
We have been installing integral blinds in doors for many years and choose products from only the very best manufacturers and suppliers. Even if you have older PVCu or aluminium bifolding doors, it may be possible to improve these with integral glass blinds. Contact us for more information.
