Traditionally a salesman would only concentrate on the benefits of their product, this is something that is changing. Consumers are more ’savvy’ and will ask many more probing questions now-a-days, equally they will want to know the upsides and downsides and moreover if there are any risks or dangers associated. This now also applies to many products and blinds are by no means exempt. This article will concentrate on conservatory blinds in particular, and look at the dangers that some of them can pose to young children and other vulnerable persons.
Honeycomb, or cellular blinds are designed specifically to protect against heat loss, and they are made from air-pocketed honeycomb-like material. You can get single-cell honeycomb blinds which are effective in protecting against cold, or duel cell blinds which offer excellent insulation in the winter and summer months. You can also get blackout blinds which insulate while also blocking out light. And finally, light filtering blinds are useful for controlling the amount of light that enters a room, and can help you control the warmth of a room when the sun is shining.
Before we discuss blinds, let’s try to understand the two basic types of insulation. Reflective insulation refers to insulation that is lined with a heat and cold reflecting material, while bulk insulation refers to the use of a thick material that prevents hot and cold air from entering your home. The insulation used in most buildings utilizes a combination of reflective and bulk insulation; and while you probably don’t want to use this kind of material as a window covering, the principles of insulating blinds are the same.
Modern manufacturers have tried their best - they created a great variety of blinds. The variants of the vertical and horizontal strips (lamella) made of different materials with distinct textures, a wide color palette and even the possibility of applying to the blinds of any image. Such a rich selection designed to suit all tastes, and, most importantly, for every budget.
