This is also the option available with window blinds. At times, it is cumbersome to roll the blinds if the windows are high or are more in number. Or if you wish to have some ease or safety of your kids and pets from getting stranded with the cords then this option is the right choice. These are also preferred to give an elegant look to the interiors. And of course, you would not like to move your guests to roll the blinds for this the motorized options perfect option.
Well, this is the added advantage that window blinds offer. The cellular or honeycomb blinds helps to control the temperature of the room helping in minimizing the use of heaters or AC while solar blinds or energy efficient blinds helped to save the energy wasted on turning on lights during the day. These are capable of holding the glare outside while allowing the light to flow in.
Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
Let us look at the technical aspects of Matchstick blinds. These have an attached pulley system. It consists of a string which threads the wood sticks together. When pulled or let go, it rolls up or down the blinds. Additionally there are strings which go along the length to keep all the individual sticks in place. The pulley system is put up at the top of the blinds so that it doesn’t show up and spoil the look of the blinds. Most blinds will come with a header section (in some cases made of bamboo itself) to cover all this up.
