Ideal for large openings and dramatic statements, panel blinds are a new tool in the Designers arsenal to create and deliver interiors that shout and impress. Panel blinds are effective for controlling lights and glare and provide privacy and protection from the sun.

Panels from 40cm to 120cm glide on a special aluminium track. Stacking one behind the other, these panels can be made up of almost any fabric, including woven wood.

Panels can be made to suit your requirements by combining a few fabrics with the help of wooden accents or by alternating fabrics of your choice.

We have a wide range of blockouts, translucent and patterned fabrics available for panel blinds.
