5 reasons why integral blinds are the way forward!
10 July 2019 |Advice & Guidance
Although integral blinds are not a brand-new concept, they are fast becoming the window covering of choice for homeowners across the south-east and beyond. Intelligently built into the cavity of double glazed units, integral blinds are operated by a traditional securely attached cord or a modern cordless magnetic slider.
Other than expertly creating a sleek, contemporary aesthetic, we thought we’d run down the top 5 reasons why many homeowners are turning to integral blinds as a chic alternative to traditional blinds, curtains and drapes.
1. Built-in smart home technology
With almost 90% of the UK’s existing building stock expected to still be in use by 2050, improving the thermal efficiency of homes and businesses is an ongoing concern that we all need to get to grips with. So, it’s interesting to note that integrated Uni-Blinds® use dedicated warm edge spacer bar technology, which can halve heat transmission through the perimeter of a double-glazed unit. Integral blinds effectively keep more heat in and draughts out, doing their bit for the environment as well as helping to reduce rising energy costs.
2. Secure privacy
Integral blinds provide complete control over one’s home. Expertly maintaining security and privacy levels, they also equip south east homeowners with a foolproof way to control the amount of light entering the room. As well as protecting your family from harmful UV rays, integral blinds protect prized furnishings from fading and ageing before it’s time.
3. Integral blinds are safe and sound
Although a new European safety standard was set up in 2014, ordinary internal blinds are still testing the limits of child safety. This is where integral blinds are entirely different. Safely contained in between double glazed panes of glass, the serious danger of strangulation posed to children and vulnerable adults is eliminated.
Safe for the whole family, integral blinds also add an extra acoustic layer between your glazing and the outside world; reducing any noise issues even further.
4. Windows with integral blinds make your life easier!
How much of your time is taken up with the hassle of maintaining your current blinds? Thanks to their intelligent and hygienic air-tight seal, integral blinds are virtually maintenance-free! With a 5-year manufacturers guarantee, we’ll make sure we take care of you and your integral blinds for the foreseeable future; although there is little that can go wrong with an SEHBAC installed integral blind. As the ultimate time-saving window covering, integral blinds make dusting, cleaning and untangling window blinds a thing of the past!
5. A worthwhile investment
Whether it’s integral blinds for bifold doors, windows or conservatories, they’re a firm investment in both residential and commercial settings alike. Notably enhancing kerb appeal wherever they’re installed, it’s hardly surprising that Morley Glass integral blinds make south-east homes much more appealing to homebuyers.
