What are the different fabric options for replacement slats?
Our fabrics have different performance features so you know you will be investing in something that will really work in the space you are fitting the blinds.
Light filtering fabrics offer privacy and glare control, however light still comes through them. As the level of filtering can vary between the fabrics, we would always recommend ordering samples to check the suitability for your space.
These work well in any room where privacy is important but there is no need to completely block out the light.
Voile and sheer fabrics are perfect if you would like to ensure some privacy but still allow the maximum amount of light through and maintain a degree of outward vision.
These are very popular in light, natural hues for living rooms and dining rooms, especially when styled with curtains.
Blackout fabrics block maximum light from coming through and will give you increased privacy. Blackout blinds are perfect for bedrooms, children’s rooms and nurseries or any room where you need to completely prevent light coming in.
Moisture resistant fabrics have been created with kitchens and bathrooms in mind. The fabrics are made so they maintain the colour and finish even in moist conditions.
Moisture resistant vertical blinds are perfect for rooms where you’re likely to splash them with water, for example, kitchens, playrooms, the bathroom or the utility room. Moisture resistant vertical blinds are also easy to keep clean.
PVC waterproof fabrics are not only completely waterproof; they’re also flame retardant and blackout, making them one of the most versatile and practical fabric types.
PVC vertical replacement blinds are one of the easiest blinds to clean as you don’t have to worry about fabric soaking in the water. This makes them particularly well suited to kitchens, bathrooms and they’re also popular in school classrooms.
Thermal energy saving fabrics both save energy and provide insulation. This means they are beneficial all year round, as they prevent heat loss during winter and keep the room cool during the summer months. They’re perfect for living rooms and dining rooms.
Solar control fabrics absorb or reflect a higher percentage of solar radiation than regular fabrics. Some of these fabrics will have a silver foil-coloured backing to maximise the amount of solar radiation reflected. These can be a welcome addition to any rooms that get a lot of heat, such as conservatories and sunrooms.
Different vertical blind bottom weights
Weights and chains – these are often offered as a default option for vertical blinds. Weights and chains will prevent excess movement of your blinds, which is useful if you like to keep your windows open.
Chainless weights – as the name suggests, this weight option won’t have any chains at the bottom of your blinds. This is a perfect option if you have kids or mischievous pets in your home. Plus, you don’t have to worry about dust build-up on the chains.
Chainless sealed-in weights – containing a hidden metal weight, the bonded-shut chainless weight option is great for creating a clean, sleek look for your vertical blinds. With no break in the fabric, and with no chains, this finish is great for preventing damage, plus you don’t have to worry about dusting them.
Combine chainless sealed-in weights with a wand control option to make your vertical blind 100% child safe. These are a firm favourite in schools, nurseries, care homes, hospitals and offices.
