Conservatory Comfort Clear view Blinds – the unique solution to excessive Summer heat, glare and fading through windows and rooflights
Strong direct sunlight can make rooms uncomfortably hot and the glare can make working at the computer screen or watching TV almost impossible. Traditional blinds and curtains unfortunately cut out the light and obscure the view and are not always practical in all situations. Our ‘Clear View’ roller, computer and vertical louvre blinds and optical laminates help make rooms cool, and comfortable without affecting the outside view. Their excellent performance far surpasses that of any conventional blind because our crystal clear heat reflectors exclude the heat before it can enter the room. They eliminate up to 70% of the sun’s heat, cut glare and exclude 99% of ultra-violet rays. Winter insulating blinds can reduce heat loss by up to 70%.
Insu ‘Clear View’ blinds and optical laminates are ideal for any application – whether home or office – and are popular because, unlike traditional blinds and curtains, they do not cut out the light or obscure the view.
Exceptional Temperature Reductions
Unlike conventional blinds they are able to reflect the sun’s heat back outside before it enters the room. Where temperatures, for example, have previously risen to 95°F (35°C), reduction of up to 20°F (11°C) – to a comfortable 75°F (24°C) – have been achieved.
In offices with existing air conditioning, ‘Clear View’ Blinds and Laminates have also delivered significant savings to running costs and there have been dramatic improvements in temperature control in zoned areas. These benefits are particularly impressive where the air conditioning is old and has lost efficiency.
The transparent blinds incorporate a unique glare preventer which is especially effective at cutting window glare on computers and VDU screens. This provides a balance between the light level of the image on the display screen and light from the window. This is designed to meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Display Screen Regulations for VDUs and computers.
Allow a Clear View Out and Light in
Unlike conventional curtains or blinds, which completely obscure the view and can lead to feelings of claustrophobia, ‘Clear View’ blinds and optical laminates allow a clear view out and let light in.
Protect against fading
‘Clear View’ blinds and laminates exclude 99% of UV rays – to help protect furnishings and fabrics against fading.
Warmer in winter
Insulating grades incorporated in the cassetted blind version seals against the window frame to reduce winter heat loss by up to 70%.
