glass&sealedunits Loving It Transparency in its many variations is at the heart of the desire to include glass in interiors and whilst SaintGobain’s glass products create a feeling of space they also surpass the unique challenges designers face when extending aesthetics with functional potential. »»Saint-Gobain Glass Interior products deflect and channel light in imaginative and exciting ways whilst offering the assurance of privacy, security and protection. From bathrooms, kitchens and living areas to retail, offices and hotels, the company’s interior glass range offers solutions for a wide range of applications. With such an extensive offering Saint-Gobain realised the need to communicate the information required by designers and specifiers in ways that convey the unique combinations of design and purpose demanded of interior glass products. The company has therefore released a brochure pack and webpage aimed at architects and interior designers to provide key information as well as inspiration, simply and effectively. The LOVE Interiors Brochure Pack takes all of Saint-Gobain’s interior glass products and combines them in a convenient format that is highly functional whilst offering a wealth of ideas to designers. The complementary LOVE Interiors webpage offers a simple, easily accessed location through which specifiers may get an instant ‘fix’ of the company’s products whilst also providing quick links through which users may order the brochure pack, request a visit and call for specific information.

C O M New design just for the UK »»Sunbell, Italy’s leading designer and manufacturer of integral blinds has introduced a new 20mm cavity solution for glazed units designed exclusively for the UK market. The new 20mm spacer bar available in natural silver or black allows blinds to be successfully installed into traditional 28mm glazed units. Sunbell integral blinds are the ideal partner for bi-folding and patio doors providing enhanced privacy, reductions in sound intrusion and solar glare. Sealed from any ingress of dirt, dust and moisture, integral blinds offer an easy to use, low maintenance and safe solution that can help to reduce the effect of direct sunlight and heat loss, offering protection from overheating in the summer and improved thermal insulation in the winter. Designed for windows, doors and glass partitions, Sunbell blinds are available in a choice of stylish Venetian and fabric finishes including blackout options in a choice of colours. The blinds use a lowvoltage motorised system solution powered either by a rechargeable battery or ‘hard wired’ with remote activation for up to 12 blinds. The battery option is a flexible solution, easily installed with no hardwiring, rechargeable by a mains connection with optional external solar panel and controllable by remote activation. Blinds are available to order direct from Italy on a three week lead time ready for assembly into the glazed unit. Commenting Richard Sheppard, Sunbell’s UK agent: “The launch of Sunbell’s new 20mm cavity blind is a practical and easy to use solution for windows, doors and partitions. Designed exclusively for the UK market, Sunbell is committed to offering the perfect glazing solution for all types of materials and applications allowing complete privacy and the ultimate in solar-shading protection.” For more details call 01245 422489 or email: info@sunbell.co.uk
