Integral blinds FAQs

What are integral blinds?

Integral blinds are blinds that are fitted between the panes of glass that make up a double or triple glazed unit. Despite being in between the panes of glass, the blinds can be opened and closed manually or by an electronic operation.

How do integral blinds work?

There are a few options to choose from when it comes to operating your integral blinds.

  • Manual cord operation
  • Manual cordless operation
  • Automated operation

Manual systems can feature a securely attached cord fitted to a rotational magnetic transmission through the glass. However, for those who don’t want their double-glazed units impeded by cords, discreet magnetic sliders are another option. All of our blind systems are child and pet safe, complying with the "make it safe campaign".

The automated system uses long-life reachable batteries that are combined with an external solar panel. The motor moves the blinds up and down and is operated by remote control or a control device that is magnetically attached to the window.

Can you retrofit integral blinds?

Our integral blinds are most often fitted inside new windows and doors but they can be retrofitted into existing windows and doors simply by replacing the sealed unit. They can also be fitted into frames of all materials, including uPVC and aluminium.
