Frequently Asked Questions
Can Venetian blinds be used at the coast?
Should you be unsure rather make use of the PVC synthetic Venetian if the conditions require it or the new laminated wood product supplied by us.
How stable is the synthetic wood?
They are about 35% heavier than wood blinds. Another suitable replacement for wood in wet areas is the new laminated wood product which is also more robust. Are my wood or bamboo blinds flawed when they have markings on them? As wood and bamboo are natural products they are subject to imperfections, irregularities, bowing, warping and colour variation inherent in the products. These are not considered flaws but are part of the natural effect of the product.
Can one see through blinds?
When Venetian blind blades are closed it is possible to see through the blind by looking upwards between the closed blades when standing up against the window. This is particularly apparent in blinds with long drops or blinds mounted high off ground level. Be aware that wood Venetian blinds do not close as snugly as the aluminium blind. The block-out bamboo is also not a total block-out. Cracks of light will appear in the material and this cannot be avoided.
Even if vertical blinds are block-outs there will always be light filtering through the individual slats as it is not a solid curtain and light will also be seen between wall and blind along the edges. On a roller and roman blind the gap between wall and blind edge will also allow light to seep through.
