Venetian Blinds? We use the Hunter Douglas Sovereign system which is renowned for its strong aluminium slat. Available in 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, and 50mm in a variety of colours and finishes.
The slat is approx one-fifth of a millimetre thick- which makes it twice as thick as some slat! All the components in the headrail are immensely strong; the system is also marketed under the ‘Luxaflex’ name (ours are cheaper of course!) So our Venetian blinds are probably the strongest available anywhere! More than a hundred colours to choose from for your Venetian Blinds, and a two-year guarantee in materials and labour- before buying your Venetians do check internet reviews on the Blinds firms you’re looking at.
Venetian blinds were supposedly invented by the Egyptians but ‘modern’ Venetians are almost certainly a British invention. For maximum light, buy a white or cream blind- black looks cool but there is a lot of light lost!
Oh, and if you insist on it- we can do a more basic Venetian blind (incredibly low prices!) using the ‘Turnils’ system- thinner slat so not as strong but at prices we think are the lowest in the UK!
