Vertical blinds looking tired?

 

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

Cheers

Neil & Emma

 

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.

 

Best wishes

 

Neil, Emma & Brian

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.

What’s new?

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.
