If you are looking for the cheapest solution on the market with its full functionality, horizontal blinds will be a perfect choice.
They are the oldest form of window shading, which thanks to their ease of use make them the most widespread modern method of window shading.
The first shades that our company, and many others, fitted in Polish houses in the 90s were in fact horizontal blinds. Aluminium horizontal blinds regulate natural light and insure privacy by shielding the interior from outside gazes without blocking out natural light.
Their popularity was such that they were fitted nearly in all the windows. They are extremely solid, so much so that our customers tell us that even blinds fitted more than ten years before still work without any complaints.
Aluminium horizontal blinds
All aluminium blinds can have side guiding in the form of a nylon wire or steel line, which prevents the blind from drifting sideways when you open the window. As an alternative to the so-called wire guiding system, there are magnets or supports of the bottom rail. 16mm and 25mm blinds can be manufactured in full colour which means that aluminium slats, cords, ladders and top and bottom rail will be in the same colour. 25 mm blinds are manufactured in two systems: glass surface mounted blinds and inter-pane blinds. Other types are manufactured in the former system.
Aluminium blinds 16mm
They are made of a 16mm wide aluminium tape. This width is quite a new solution for this type of shading. Slats are arranged more densely than in the 25mm type as there are approximately 90 slats per metre. The latest collection contains 28 colours including plain, brocade and mottled.
Aluminium blinds 25mm
They are made of a 25mm-wide aluminium tape, which is the most common width. In the latest collection, there are 47 colours of the tape including plain, brocade, wood effect as well as louvers. There are approximately 44 slats per metre.
