Operational Update – Coronavirus (COVID-19)
UPDATED 12th May
We are looking to reopen at some point next week (w/c 18th May) but have some points that must be read and confirmed by phone or email prior to any face to face consultation, or home/work visit from us.
These can be found by clicking the following link HERE
We’d like to thank you for your continued support over the coming weeks and months.
Blind Factory Leeds
At Blind Factory Leeds, our priority remains the health, safety and welfare of our colleagues, customers and suppliers.
Following the lockdown announcement from the Prime Minister we believe the responsible approach is for BFL to suspend trading. It is paramount that not only do we help to control the spread of this disease, we also keep our own family safe.
We would like to extend our warmest thanks to our customers, our colleagues and their families at this uncertain time.
We will open again, to serve you soon.
All at Blind Factory Leeds
We are closely monitoring the latest government and public health guidelines regarding COVID-19 and currently Blind Factory Leeds is open as normal.
We would like to reassure customers that we are undertaking a number of additional cleaning procedures to ensure that the highest possible hygiene standards are upheld at all times both personally and within the unit.
None of us have any symptoms (long may that continue) and are happy to receive customers into the unit who are likewise, symptom free.
If you wish for a home visit, we sanitise our hands before (and after) any appointment with virucidal gel; but again ask that you are symptom free before asking us to visit your property.
As always, we can give you a price either over the phone or by email, if you would prefer to minimise actual contact.
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support. Please continue to look after yourself, your family and your colleagues.
Neil & Emma
So, you’re looking for blinds?
It’s really easy, just let us have your measurements (via web/email/phone) and the type of blind you are looking for.
We need the width x drop sizes in inches, cm’s or mm’s. They don’t have to be spot on, but the closer you can be, the closer the estimate will be.
Tell us if you’d like the blinds to be fitted by us, or if you can do it yourself, this will save you a few pennies. But with supply only, this means the blinds are ordered from your sizes.
The reason we ask this of you is that we cannot physically get to every enquiry and measure. It has worked well in the past for us and gives you an idea as to whether we are within your price expectations
Looking for inspiration?
Why not have a look at some of our Completed Jobs on Facebook
We look forward to hearing from you soon.

There’s no need to change the lot
Why not just change the louvres?
Either take one down and measure the fabric length in “mm” and count the quantity you need, or bring it into us and we will measure it for you.
We have thousands of metres of material in stock and there are hundreds of samples to see.
Our louvres are machine cut & sewn (by hand) and NOT GLUED, so there is no chance of them coming apart in the sun.
Our prices start at £2.00 per louvre incl. VAT and you get hangers, louvres weights and chain included in this price too.
Please call us for a price or come down to see the samples – there will be someone in Mon-Fri, 9am-2pm (but please call in advance to check that we will be here).
We hope to see you soon
Neil & Emma
Please accept our apologies if you sent a Web Enquiry through our website in the past month and we haven’t replied to you. They were sending from the website, but getting lost somewhere en-route to our mail inbox.
We were made aware of the problem at the back end of last week (23rd August) and have thankfully now rectified it and will be able to respond to all future incoming Web Enquiries.
Again, please accept our apologies. We weren’t intentionally ignoring anyone, we just didn’t know you had made an enquiry.

What’s good this year?
We’ve got some great new products that have launched this year.
Louvolite motorised Vertical & Roller blinds which can be controlled by Amazon Alexa (with a hub of course). We’ve a demo at the unit for roller if you’d like to have a try.
Aquarius Soft Cloth Roller blinds – Roman material on a roller with a dimout or blackout lining bonded to it.
Louvolite Disney ranges on roller blinds – Disney Characters printed on a roller blind.
INTU Micro, pleated blinds are great for putting on aluminium Bi-folding doors
Eclipse Powershade systems and many others!
We hope to see you soon.

It doesn’t need to all be changed…
As the saying goes “Out with the old and in with the new”. It doesn’t need to be that way all of the time.
Are your verticals looking a bit shabby, dirty or unloved after years of hard work, hanging around and looking pretty?
Why not just change the louvres? If the tracks are alright, save a few pounds and give a room that new look you’ve been thinking of without the cost of a full blind.
To save even more, you could bring one of your louvres into us, we’ll measure it and give you a price from the hundreds of fabrics available and let you know when they will be ready to collect. Job done!
Did you know?
- We measure, manufacture and install.
- We do our own fitting, rather than contracting anyone else to do the work. We believe that if Neil has measured, then Neil will fit the blinds.
- We also provide our blinds as SUPPLY ONLY. So, if you want to save a few quid and feel up to the task, why not have a go!
- For fitted blinds, our standard lead time is 2 weeks from ordering to fitting, but this can extend slightly at this time of year.
- We don’t only do Verticals, Venetians & Rollers. There isn’t anything blind related which we do not do. Motorised Roller blinds are a great way to eliminate the bead chains
- However, we don’t fit blinds supplied from others. We can only guarantee our own stuff – which is 12 months by the way – but we are only a phone call or email away.
We have just created a Motorised headrail for a customer who has existing Roman blinds. He wanted the headrails to work at the touch of a button, whilst it is quite expensive to do this, this alleviates the need for operating chains and eliminates the child safety risk as the chains are removed.
They can be powered by NIMH batteries and Solar re-charger, Lithium batteries or good old mains power and can even be added to a home automation system, controlled from your phone.
Following on from last year
Roller blinds can also be retrofitted with a Lithium Rechargeable Motor & Remote, whilst currently this is restricted to 40mm rotator tubes, we’ve heard on the grapevine that a 32mm variant will be available in the New Year.
This has happened and Eclipse are now offering 32mm motors to go into existing D-tubes (aluminium roller tubes with a D shaped internal insert)
We hope to see you soon

As ever, we have some great fabrics to view at the unit and hundreds more in the sample books. The internet cannot give you that touchy feely experience of the fabrics so why not come down a take a look for yourself?
Our contact details can be found at the top right of this page.
