There are multiple types of commercial blind reflecting the wide variety of situations in which they are used. Compared to domestic blinds, commercial window blinds have to meet widely differing requirements. Commercial blinds provide an optimal solution when it comes to managing light and heat levels in workplaces, contemporary student accommodation, hospitals and education. With new fabrics and technologies continuously coming online, commercial blinds are becoming ever more specialised.
Modern office design tends to incorporate large window space to give the working environment a bright, open aspect. Vertical blinds are frequently the solution of choice in these kinds of buildings. They are often the practical option when it comes to blinds for large windows.
Boardrooms and other rooms that host presentations particularly involving interactive whiteboards may require blackout blinds. Venetian blinds are another favourite for use in offices. Sometimes skylight blinds are needed to help with light control, particularly in the height of summer. Office door window blinds create privacy. Screen blinds help to reduce glare and infrared heat gain while maintaining a view to the outside.
Car showrooms are designed to show off their high value products in the very best light. Usually with high glass ceilings and large floor to ceiling windows, where regulating light and heat levels is crucial. A car showroom that is in effect a greenhouse would be deeply uncomfortable for customers. With so much window to cover, motorised and automatic blinds are often a practical choice. Smart blinds might make sense, opening and closing with sunrise and sunset. Ceiling blinds are generally a must.
Schools require a range of different blinds that meet the variety of demands in the educational environment while helping to regulate heat and light levels. Safety is a must and blinds used in schools and colleges must be fire retardant and avoid any looped chains which could present a safety risk. Crank operated roller blinds and wand operated vertical blinds with sewn in weights are both good choices for safety reasons. Noise reduction blinds can help create an atmosphere more conducive to learning if a school or college is situated near a busy road.
Made to measure blinds for hospitals and social care settings have a number of specific requirements. Roller blinds, shades and Venetian blinds used in this environment must take into account specific challenges such as the fight against infections like MRSA. Fabrics chosen should have anti-bacterial qualities as well and anti-ligature mechanisms for high risk areas are available.
