Sophisticated and streamlined, innovative integral blinds have become a popular ‘must-have’ feature in a variety of modern homes and large commercial installations. But what are integral blinds and how can you or your customers benefit from them?…

What is an integral blind?

Integral blinds are permanently sealed within the cavity of the double-glazed unit. Designed to provide all the benefits of horizontal Venetian blinds, integral blinds eliminate tiresome cleaning and maintenance – allowing more time to really enjoy the space.

Are integral blinds any good?

This is a question architects, developers and installers get asked a lot. Here are 8 benefits.

  1. Suit most glazing products

Our integral blinds can fit into any of our glazing products, accommodating sizes from 300mm to 2600mm. Able to fit into timber and uPVC frames, integral blinds look particularly striking in sleek aluminium windows and doors, and can even be retrofitted into existing windows and doors.

  1. Low maintenance blinds for modern windows and doors

Safely encased between the glazing, integral blinds never need to be dusted, cleaned or untangled; saving your customers crucial time and energy that can be spent elsewhere.

  1. Easy to use

Offering manual or electronic operation, effectively controlling light and shade is a piece of cake with an integral blind. Depending on the location of your blinds, your personal preference, and budget, you can choose from a conventional string pull system, a cordless magnetic slider, or automatic opening controlled remotely by the user.

  1. Easily customised

Our blinds come in a range of colours, with Venetian blinds available in 10 colours to complement your customers chosen colour scheme. To get the ambience just right, each shade offers varying levels of solar reflection, light reflection, and solar absorption too. At Aliview, we also offer an exclusive new integral blind colour in on trend Anthracite Grey, perfect for minimalist, contemporary interiors looking for extra style and kerb appeal.

  1. Long lasting privacy

Keeping households safe from view, integral blinds are ideal for businesses and other commercial premises too; often installed as internal partition walls to create privacy and better working environments.

  1. Regulates thermal efficiency to reduce energy costs

Did you know, on average, a pane of glass is capable of losing or gaining up to 10 times the amount of heat as a similarly sized wall space? All Uni-Blinds® feature a warm edge spacer bar to ensure the thermal insulation of the sealed unit is maximised. Drastically improving the energy performance of the window or door, energy efficiency is built in with an integral blind.

  1. Valuable UV protection

Providing the perfect finishing touch to any room, integral blinds deliver essential UV coverage that protects your furniture from fading due to the effects of the sun. Integral blinds are guaranteed to keep your furniture in peak condition for longer.

  1. Hygienic blind systems

Integral blinds also play their part in reducing virus transmission by touching contaminated surfaces. Utilising an innovative air-tight seal, integral blinds are much more hygienic than conventional blinds and other window dressings. Plus, the SL20SV's external magnetic slider is treated with a Sanitized® patented antibacterial finish for absolute peace of mind.
