This project was commission by an architect on behalf of a foreign royal client, for a home in London. The fixing position was approx 8mts high and was to cover a recently installed roof over what was once a courtyard.
Scaffolding was erected for both the survey and installation of the blinds.
What made this project particularly noteworthy was the client requirement for a special cloth which had to be flown in from Dubai. The cloth needed to be laminated to make it stiff.
In addition, the shaped of the blinds were note a standard rectangular shape, but instead triangular!
It's non-retractable venetian style louvre blind system which has been designed specifically for roof applications, both internal and external, and is particularly suitable for horizontal, sloping or unusually shaped glazed areas, particularly conservatory type roofs.
It seems that in our never ending quest for bigger homes we are building extensions just about anywhere! More often than not, we choose to have a roof lantern to bring natural light in from the ceiling area. Of course, this comes with the issue of trying to control the light when it's exceptionally bright or simply if one needs a blackout effect.
We have a range of Roof window blinds and Lantern Window Blinds to suit any requirement.
