Roller Blinds

Both manual or motorised Roller Blind options. We have access to a phenomenal library of fabrics from Hunter Douglas in Holland, Junkers and Muller in Germany, Mermet in France, Alkenze in Korea and many other product specific suppliers. Using the most recognised motor brand, Somfy, we are confident that our expertise in this product can offer you; the Designer; ease of mind, knowing that your client is being offered world class products. The hardware that we use are designed by leading design engineers and many still have patents that we have exclusive licenses to use.


Venetian Blinds

Again access to hundreds of slating options and unique hardware gives us the ability to offer highly technical solutions to your requirements. We have noticed a huge demand for motorisation of Venetian Blinds, we now offer automated building solutions, as these intergrate seamlessly with all Somfy Motors. The choice of 25mm and 50mm aluminium as well as 50mm Basswood and Litewood allows the designer to completely customise his project.


Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds have a reputation of being inexpensive (cheap), however, in the last few years it is re-emerging with a higher specification and more unique fabrics. The troublesome bottom chain is no longer necessary and high quality fabrics have entered into the market. The motorisation of this product is starting to appeal to the Designers and ifs offering an opportunity again to intergrate into automated building solutions.
