Custom Blinds for Gable Windows & Shaped Areas

Planning For Gable Window Blinds

Case Study

Out of Shape with Lutron

  • Are any windows or doors going to open inwards? With inward opening doors or windows the blind solutions available are much more limited as to what blinds can be installed.

  • With shaped blinds depending on the final solution you choose some blinds will work upwards and others will work downwards. This will alter the stack position when not required. This will alter where any motorized provision needs to be made.

Blinds can often be concealed

  • Blinds Cassette – can be installed retrospectively, available with certain products such as roller blinds only

  • Blinds Pelmet – built in during construction, the size of this will depend on the product/supplier you choose

  • Blinds Box/Recess – built in during construction, the size of this will depend on the product/supplier you choose

What density will you require the blinds material to be?

Case Study

Modern Country Residence

  • Blackout 100% – not easily achieved and will require side channels, do these need to be built in during construction?

  • Dimout – can be achieved using a blackout material and a solution with the least No.of blinds

  • Privacy – easily achieved using an opaque material but not necessarily light reducing material

  • Screen – easily achievable with 1% 3% and 5% visibility but do not give not privacy at night time

Will you require the blinds to be motorized?

  • Do you have the necessary power provision?

  • Power provisions will vary depending on size and product chosen

  • Low voltage motor solutions will require transformers, these would be positioned where they can’t be seen

  • Rechargeable battery solutions are improving all the time but are limited to certain products.
