Custom Vertical blinds are an easy and effective way to control the light while maintaining your privacy. They have a 180-degree tilt option with wide vanes that allow you to direct the light and preserve some of the view. Colored and wall-textured vanes are available to blend with your paint and/or decorative vanes to augment the size of your room.
Learn More About Vertical Blinds
Custom Vertical Blinds are made from the combination of cloth material or PVC hanged on pins traversing on a head-rail.
Benefits: Vertical blinds are used to block the sun, control privacy, and keep some of the view while having privacy; and they fit almost every opening. Vertical blinds are used to cover wide openings and over sliding doors.
Locations: Vertical Blinds are used in both residential homes and commercial buildings to improve heat control and privacy at the same time. They are used more in commercial buildings; although, Hunter Douglas Cadence vertical blinds are a great fit for custom homes.
Mounting requirements: Custom Vertical blinds need to have a minimum of 3 ½” mounting depth for inside the mount; otherwise, it’s recommended to install them outside the mount.
Types: Custom Vertical blinds can be made of PVC and cloth material. The cloth can freely hang with weight or it can have a groover insert as a backing. Most of the vertical blinds vanes are light-filtering or room-darkening; you can have them made with roller-shades screen material.
Colors and patterns: Vertical blinds come in various color schemes, especially the PVC vanes. There is very little demand on cloth materials, but every manufacturer still has about 30 patterns from which to choose.
Recommended manufacturer: There is no preferred manufacturer for the Vertical Blinds, as they have a long history. The custom-look Hunter Douglas Cadence collection can meet the expectations of vertical blinds.
Controls: Vertical blinds have two type of controls: wand and cord-and-chain control. The wand control requires walking along the opening, which prevents furniture placement. The cord-and-chain control lasts longer and provides an easy traversing experience. Hunter Douglas patented a wand-and-cord control.
Child-safety features: for the cord and chain control it is required to install a cord holder to keep the beaded chain cords out of the reach of children.
Life expectancy: Vertical blinds can last up to 15 years, but can start breaking earlier if the door is left open while the blind is in the closed position.
What to consider before you buy:
- Vertical Blinds should be installed on sliding doors.
- Vertical Blinds made of screen material won’t provide privacy at the night, even with 1% openness.
