Aluminium Venetian Blinds
Aluminium Venetian Blinds are a fantastic option for getting privacy. The rotating slat design allows you to adjust your blinds to let in daylight but also block a direct line of sight into your home.
The slats are movable so that they can open outwards or inwards or left closed completely. A brake, or cord lock mechanism, hidden in the top casing, allows you to pull the blinds up.
Alternatively, you can let them down part of the way or to keep them held in a stack at the top of the blind frame.
With Venetian blinds, the stack is at the top of the window as that is where all the slats sit when the blind is in the fully up (or open) position.
The stack on Aluminium Venetian blinds is always very small when compared to that of a wooden venetian blind. This is due to the difference in the slat thickness. It makes aluminium venetian blinds a good choice when one has a low height door for example.
Venetian Blinds make a room seem larger because they are less intrusive because of the thinner slats. Some homeowners choose to apply both curtains and blinds to create stunning effects.
Aluminium blinds are non-toxic and long-lasting. It is made of the naturally occurring element aluminium. Aluminium is a lightweight, flexible, non-toxic metal that is resistant to corrosion. It is an excellent material for window covering.

Child Safety Features
Aluminium Venetian Blinds are made safe in the following ways:
- No cord is left longer than 150cm from the floor when the blind is in its fully down position.
- Where a cord is made longer when pulled (ie, when you pull the blind up, the cord gets longer), we install a cord gathering cleat.
The cleat is fitted to window frame or side of the recess into the wall.
For bay windows, we fit a cord cleat on each section of the window.
- Cord Consolidating devices are used to convert all the cords that come out of the head-rail into one cord, thus removing the possibility of a looped cord being present when the blind is in its down position.
- Anti-looping devices are attached to each pull cord to stop the possibility of cords being drawn from the main section of the blind and a loop forming.
