Blinds for Shaped and Complex Windows

Among the key elements were additional floors which were added and set back with a large curved glazing area supported on timber glulam beams bringing state-of-the-art design to a period property that had seen better days.

Grants were approached by highly respected architects Collado Collins and the national building contractors, Costain, who had been let down midway through the project by their existing suppliers who were unable to supply shading that worked within the originally agreed budget.

Having surveyed the project and discussed every aspect of it with the architect, Grants’ Special Projects division suggested a bespoke shading solution specifically designed to follow the main curve of the glazing and stack at the head when not required.

The proposals put forward by Grants were based on a fully motorised Endurashade system operating through parallel side channels with the motor itself housed at the head of the blind.

The order was placed by Costain subject to approval of a working prototype crafted at Grants’ Isle of Wight workshops. When this full-sized prototype was indeed signed off, the blinds – manufactured using Blenheim 7215 Charcoal material and supported by a steel hardware system finished to match the colour of the overall glazing structure – were commissioned and installed by Grants’ project management team.

Finally – to ensure the highest levels of aftersales care – an ongoing service contract was put in place for the tenant to ensure the blinds were regularly maintained and kept in good working order.
