  • Moisture ResistantMoisture Resistant

    Moisture resistant blinds are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there may be a lot of moisture present. Our Moisture Resistant material is rot-proof and Biosafe®. This is because it will not absorb and retain any water under normal circumstances, which is key to preventing the build-up of bacteria or mold in these warm, damp spaces.

    We offer a range of moisture resistant blinds – including bathroom blinds, kitchen blinds, and roller blinds. With our measuring guides and unparalleled customer service, you can ensure your blinds are perfect for the room they are used in.

  • Fire RetardantFire Retardant

    Fire retardancy is a worthy feature to look out for with a window blind. A fire-retardant blind provides peace of mind, knowing that you have a product in place that will protect your loved ones. It is a high quality and safe alternative in case somebody leaves a candle on the windowsill, or you install a blind close to your hob in the kitchen. This material will only smolder if presented with a flame, and once the source of heat has been removed, it is designed to self-extinguish.

    This can be added to your fabric by selecting this add-on at the checkout.

    If you are unsure about whether the type of blind you are interested in is fire retardant, please speak to our customer service team.

  • Anti BacterialAnti Bacterial

    Ideal for children’s play areas, communal areas, bathrooms and homes with pets. Our Anti-Bacterial, anti-microbial blinds are treated to kill bacteria. Biosafe® is the international accreditation standard for an antimicrobial formula that ensures the effective inhibition of infection. What’s more, it is an inherent formula, which means it will not wear off over time. This formula is used in hospitals, care homes, and health care centres across the country.

    The term anti-bacterial can sometimes throw up visions of grey, lifeless blinds – however, we have a huge number of anti-bacterial blinds perfect for your home. In particular, the roller blinds range is a popular choice for tackling bacteria in the home.

  • Solar ReflectiveSolar Reflective

    Just what you need when you retreat indoors on a scorching summer’s day. Our solar reflective fabric has a special backing that bounces back the sun’s rays. This reduces heat and glare building up in a room beyond the abilities of a regular blind, ideal for rooms exposed to a lot of sunlight, giving you an element of solar control. Please note that the backs of these fabrics will appear different to the front of the blind due to the solar reflective properties.

  • Fabric Privacy TapeFabric Privacy Tape

    Fabric privacy tape is a strip of fabric that covers the holes that the ladder passes through. Not only is the fabric tape a stylish addition to the blind, but it also covers the holes that could allow in light or let people look through.

    Solid or patterned privacy tape is available across our blind range, should you want to contrast the colour of the blind, or room, with the tape.

  • Blackout : PVCBlackout : PVC

    Providing high levels of light exclusion, these are the nigh-on bombproof blind fabrics that are suited to the toughest conditions. This moisture resistant, fire retardant, anti-microbial wipe clean blackout fabric is 4-ply: three layers of PVC and one layer of fiberglass. All those layers mean that no light can seep through. PVC Blackout fabric is ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, kids’ rooms and more!

    All of our PVC blackout blinds are made to measure to your windows so you can ensure there is no interrupted sleep and light creeping in. If you’re measuring outside of the window recess, ensure you add additional length to your width measurement to remove the potential of light shining through the sides.

  • Blackout : Fabric FrontedBlackout : Fabric Fronted

    The Fabric Fronted Blackout Blind collection provides you with the light-blocking properties expected from a blackout blind, but with the vibrancy of the colours and patterns you’d expect to find on fabric blinds. The fabric is backed with an additional light blocking material making it impossible for exterior light to penetrate the fabric, casting your room into total darkness.

  • Screen FabricScreen Fabric

    Screen fabric is an easy and stylish way to shade your room for direct sunlight. Popular for spaces where screens need to be viewed, which can be obscured by bright light, a screen fabric has a more open style weave than other dimout fabrics, and certainly more so than blackout fabrics.

    Light is allowed through and it is possible to see through the fabric to some extent, but glare is reduced to a minimum. Not only is it super-effective in aiding home offices, television rooms and other spaces that can be disrupted by glare, but it is also a clean, modern-looking fabric.

  • Covid SecureCovid Secure

Available with both a Chain or Crank operation the Clear Roller Screen is an excellent solution in providing covid secure protection whilst allowing people to see each other and not lose that visual element.

  • Dimout FabricDimout Fabric

    Dimout fabric dims any exterior light entering the room but doesn’t block it out completely. This is really effective at cutting glare on screens without casting the room into total darkness. We find many people use this type of roller blind in living rooms as it stops sunlight from shining onto television screens or making the room too bright and uncomfortable. Generally, dimout fabric is thinner than blackout, has an open weave and comes in a variety of opacities. Opacity refers to how much light is blocked (think transparency in reverse), and we refer to its light and medium (high opacity blinds are blackout blinds) simply for ease of understanding. Light opacity dimout roller blinds are nearer voile and sheer fabrics, letting in lots of light, just filtering down direct beams of sunlight. The wonderful thing with dimout fabric is that it catches the sunlight and changes tone as the sun moves across the sky, which is simply captivating, especially when the fabric seems to glow.
