Vertical Blind Dubai

 

(Vertical Blinds Dubai) The vertical blind easily filters the passage of light and is by far the ideal blind for large windows.

A rope allows the blades to move and a small chain will ensure their rotation

PRESENTATION / FUNCTIONALITY OF THE VERTICAL BLIND DUBAI

If the vertical slats are placed perpendicular to the rail, the field of vision is hardly hindered. However, the more you will orient them to bring them closer to a position parallel to the rail, the more you will cut the passage of light. In this way, you can adjust your privacy.

Unfortunately, it is still all too often associated with use only devoted to the office. The introduction of a wide range of colors and materials popularized it. To this, the manufacturers added a decorative touch with the arrival of the 89 mm wide blades. Vertical Blinds Dubai

Each slat is connected to the rail by a small carriage. These are connected to each other by a stainless steel separator and this constantly. So all the slats overlap in the same way. This means that the shading area (due to the blades overlapping one another) is constant. Vertical Blinds Dubai

Vertical Blinds LARGE DIMENSION

This blind is particularly recommended for covering large windows. Indeed, depending on the materials, it can go up to 500 cm high and 600 cm wide for a maximum surface of 17 m2.

By putting two rails in the extension of each other, you can imagine the coverable size!

 

Vertical Blinds BLADE WIDTH

The slats are most often 89 or 127 mm wide. The narrower one will have a larger package because it will take more slats to cover the same window and will logically cost a little more.

The use of the 63 mm wide coverslip is very marginal. Because the package becomes gigantic, and the drop of the slats is not always of good quality.

 

The 250mm blades have a huge package advantage, but few windows allow such recoil. Imagine a room 400 cm wide with a window on both sides; the obstacle will be 52 cm! In addition, the fixing must inevitably start from the ceiling to avoid the “cantilever”.

 

So here too, it is intended for a niche market. The only use that I see of interest for this width is a room divider with a very small lateral package. Since it is a niche, the choice will logically be restricted.

MATERIALS AND MAINTENANCE OF THE VERTICAL BLIND SLATS

Textile

By far, the most widespread because it gives a warmer appearance by reminding us of the hangings.

Of course, we can have more transparent materials than others, sunscreens, blackout.

This strip will always be terminated with a ballast lead to ensure a beautiful drop to your blade. The seals can be linked between.

 

Warning:

The slats should be allowed to stabilize after rapid movement. Wait for them to stop dancing before rotating.

 

The fact of no longer putting a chain at the bottom means that they can cross during this maneuver. If you remember the school, a circle is 360 °. But the blind blades did not have to be diligent, because they only rotate 350 °, so there is a blind spot.

 

If a single slat does not overlap correctly (all forward, for example), the rail will no longer work!

The repair is very simple, manually realign it in relation to the others. In this case, very often, it will no longer be completely synchronous with the others.

 

Almost all manufacturers have a self-regulating mechanism, often called an automatic clutch. Using the chain, force the rotation in one direction than in the other, and your strip will be aligned again with the others. This function is essential because you cannot imagine the number of objects hindering the proper functioning of the slats, such as for example:

  • Plant or decorative object on window shelves
  • Toy or various bags on the ground

So the simple fact that your rail has this clutch will ensure long service life.

Maintenance of textile slats

Some Materials Don’t Like Water!

For fiberglass, maintenance will, therefore, be limited to a small feather duster or rub very delicately with a barely damp sponge. Beware of the risk of rippling; in fact, the fabrics are painted; by rubbing too hard, you risk making the color start or by wetting it to make a halo.

Recommended: Kitchen Blinds Dubai

Hand Washable.

The technique is quite simple, soak the slides in a bathtub with water at 30 °, add a cleaning product with neutral pH, and leave to soak. Rinse with a small jet and hang wet. Take care not to chew them during the maneuvers.

  • Machine washable.

Some blades are machine washable; here arm yourself with patience and courage.

The blades must be packed and rolled by ten in a special cleaning bag and only a pack of 10 blades per machine, for example, a 500 cm wide rail will have between 44 and 67 blades. Do not wring them out and hang them up while they are still wet.

At the top of the slat, a bar will be slipped into a small hem (allows your blade to hang on the rail), and at the bottom, the ballast weight will be accommodated there. These hems are heat-sealed, so too many cleanings can undo them!!

Professional advice for the vertical blind

Buy machine-washable blades to wash them by hand!

No, I am not going crazy! Let me explain, after a few years, you wash them by hand. The second cleaning will be done by machine and the third again by hand and the fourth… wouldn’t it be time to change them! Vertical Blinds Dubai

I understand that some people have allergies, and therefore maintenance becomes a crucial point in the choice, then it is possible to delegate this step to companies specialized in ultrasonic cleaning, but beware the cost is high, and your window does will not be stocked for several days. Or opt for PVC or aluminum slats. Vertical Blinds Dubai

 

PVC Slats

Since they are rigid, there is no longer any reason to use ballast weights at the bottom. The remark on the rotation of the blades above takes on its full meaning here. Vertical Blinds in Dubai

Maintenance will be very easy, but beware of the Achilles heel of this slat is the hanging hole.

The coverslip will be punched out a bit like a hole made in a sheet of paper with your hole punch. But alas, unlike the sheet of paper, there is no eyelet to repair a tear.

So be careful when cleaning not to pull too hard on the blades.

 

Aluminum Slats

The vertical slats will be curved to make them rigid, and the corners will be rounded so as not to be injured. As for those in PVC, maintenance will be very easy, but the same remark for the punch remains valid; on the other hand, the metal does not react to hot/cold, and it will be much more solid. Vertical Blinds Dubai

Its major drawback is that once crunched or deformed; you will not be able to get them back into shape without it being visible.

 

Another drawback: the sound of a chime, remember these magnificent objects put on the front door to be sure to hear the intruder enter the house!

So, if your room has underfloor heating or is conducive to many drafts (direct by the window sash or indirect by a door located a few meters), and of course, that noise bothers you, this product will quickly become your nightmare.

If this is not the case, it will give a very modern look to your interior.

It goes without saying that the PVC and aluminum blades are heavier than those in textiles, so the coverable surfaces will be smaller.

 

Woven wooden blades

Woven wood was very popular in the early 2010s but soon found its detractors. Vertical Blinds Dubai

This material is too unstable in its behavior (rigidity) and too reactive to heat/humidity for its dimensions, in summary, beautiful but not, in my opinion, for this use.

Rope blades

Commonly known as strings. A large number of cords are stored one against the other, and this over a width of 89 or 250mm.

To ensure better screening of light, they have been doubled.

The success of this material is very mixed, and either people use it as a blind and a screen at the same time or a much nicer use is the separation of two parts of a room without giving an impression of compartmentalization. Vertical Blinds Dubai

 

Basic most of the windows are rectangular, but some modern architectures have introduced trapezoidal shapes.

At the start, this mainly concerned the veranda, with the two side faces, but architects are increasingly giving free rein to their imagination, not thinking that afterward, it will be necessary to cover its bay windows.

Of course, the blind will be more expensive because:

  • The rail will be fitted with a brake mechanism (prevents the slats from descending on their own).
  • Each blade will have a different dimension. Vertical Blinds Dubai

The trapezoid windows only in the lower part are seen more and more.

It is possible to bend the rail either on:

  • His back in “archivolt”
  • Its “arc of a circle” side

But here the obstacle will often be:

  • Technical:

Huge bending radius so there is a risk of being strongly removed from the wall.

For an archivolt, it will require an ellipse and not a semicircle. Otherwise, the blades will no longer be able to orient themselves. Vertical Blinds Dubai

  • Economic:

Don’t be surprised by the extra cost! Vertical Blinds Dubai

Just to reassure you of the order of 3 times the price of a square window, but the respect for the window decided by your architect is at that price!

We can consider two-blade heights on the same rail; it is very common, especially in kitchens with a low part up to the height of the furniture and a high part for the door, just provide that the clearance is always on the side upper.
