SEVENTHINGS... 5. We were the first company in the UK to achieve the BS EN 1279-6:2002 kite mark for manufacturing insulating glass units with ScreenLine® integral Venetian blinds inside. We are the only UK integral blind manufacturer and supplier affiliated with the British Blinds and Shutter Association (BBSA) which operates the RoSPA Make it Safe campaign. We’re also committed to the environment and reducing waste, and regularly make donations of our glass offcuts and packaging to local schools and art clubs. Thanks to our warm edge spacer bars, Uni-Blinds® are suitable for A and B rated windows under the WER (Windows Energy Ratings) scheme. 6. A common misconception of our integral blinds is that they’re difficult to install, when nothing could be further from the truth. Integral blinds aren’t only for living rooms and conservatories, they’re also an ideal option for ‘damp’ rooms such as kitchens due to being watertight. They are also the only viable sun-shading option for bi-folding doors. Installing Uni-blinds® doesn’t have to mean replacing the entire window frame, they’re actually very easy to retrofit if desired. This includes our new SL16 slimline blind system, which is suitable for use in a 16mm cavity. 7. The rotating magnets we use inside our mechanisms that ensure the blinds are sealed and protected from dust have an impressive lifespan of over 100 years. No-one wants wonky blinds, so to prevent this happening with our Uni-Blind® sealed units with ScreenLine® integral blinds inside, Italian manufacturer Pellini incorporated an automatic levelling device, exclusively for our SV System. Our motorised Uni-Blind® MB system benefits from the quietest ever brushless motor and plug-in diagnostics to speedily resolve any operational issues with ease. C L E A RV I E W-U K .
