One of the most functional forms of window decoration is undoubtedly the vertical blinds. Whether in the office or in a domestic environment, this product is an ideal choice due to its versatility.
A vertical blind consists of an aluminium rail and slats. For the slats you can choose between 2 different types; textile slats and pvc slats. Because you can orient the slats yourself according to the desired incidence of light, this is a very interesting product. If you choose pvc slats or black-out textile slats, you can even completely darken a room.
When it comes to finishing, you can choose between different colours for the rail and the controls. You can also style the slat weights on the underside of textile slats completely according to your own taste.
Transparent slats are particularly suitable for living spaces due to their cosy appearance. Because of their transparency, they offer a very good view of the outside, even when the slats are closed. You should be aware that people also have a view through to the inside in the evening. Especially ideal for a window overlooking the garden.
Light filtering slats offer privacy but still allow a limited amount of light through. This allows you to maintain a perfect connection with the outside world without sacrificing privacy. In the evening there is also only a limited view to the inside. Light filtering slats are mainly chosen for living spaces.
If you want complete privacy, blackout slats are the ideal choice. Both during the day and in the evening, no one can look inside when the blinds are completely closed. Ideal for a window on the street side. By orienting the slats correctly, you can always let in a desired amount of light without having to sacrifice privacy.
A screen is a special fabric woven from glass fibre wires and PVC. If you for slats in screen fabric, you not only get a nice view to the outside, but you can also enjoy a number of extra advantages. For example, slats in screen fabric are not only fire retardant, but are also perfectly washable, making them ideal for use in a kitchen or a home with small children. Screen slats are also often used in a desk as they reduce the glare of incoming sunlight on a tv or pc.
PVC slats radiate a little less cosiness than slats made of textile, but they do have a number of advantages. If you want complete privacy, they are an ideal choice. Both during the day and in the evening, no one can look inside when the blinds are completely closed. Ideal for a window on the street side. By orienting the blinds correctly, you can always let in a desired amount of light without having to sacrifice privacy. In addition, PVC slats are also perfectly washable and ideal for use in damp rooms. This makes them very popular in kitchens and bathrooms.
The window decoration is placed between the window frame or the walls.
Measure the width in different places each time and then take the smallest size.
Finished width = smallest measured width - 1cm
Next, also measure the height in different places and also take the smallest size here.
Finished height = smallest measured height - 1cm (slats till the tablet)
Finished height = smallest measured height - 2cm (slats till the floor)
The window decoration is placed on the window frame or the wall.
In this case, you can choose the desired overlap.
To do so, measure the width of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished width = measured width + desired overlap
You can also choose the desired overlap in height.
To do so, measure the height of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished height = measured height + desired overlap
It was decided at European level that interior blinds and window decoration should meet new requirements in terms of Child Safety. These new requirements relate to the risk that cord and/or chain loops can pose to young children. (European Standards: EN 13120, EN 16433 and EN 16434)
The general rule is that the controls must always be at least 150 cm above the ground. In the ordering process you should always specify the installation height. Based on this, we will provide the chain or cord control with the correct length. Each product is also supplied with a safety device with which you must tension the chain or cord (laterally). This should ensure that young children cannot stick their heads through the cord or chain loop and thus avoid the risk of strangulation.
We are constantly working on our customer experience and the perception of our products. Soon we will place short instructional videos online in which the mounting will be shown step by step. In the meantime, you can use the installation instructions below. These explain step by step which things you need to pay attention to during the installation and operation of your vertical blind.
If you have any questions or encounter problems during the mounting of your vertical blind you can contact us online or contact the Diaz distributor where you picked up the product.
