Commercial blinds, also referred to as commercial window treatments, come with a host of advantages that make them an excellent choice for businesses of all sizes. Commercial blinds can be custom-made to fit any size or shape of window, making them a versatile solution to suit different shading requirements.

What are commercial blinds?

Commercial blinds are manufactured specifically for offices and other commercial environments like hospitals, hotels and restaurants. They differ from residential blinds that are fitted in peoples’ homes because commercial blinds are built to withstand heavier and more frequent use.

Here are some of the main benefits of commercial blinds:

1. Energy-efficient blinds

Commercial blinds can reduce energy costs within the workplace by blocking out sunlight during the warm months and insulating windows during the colder months. Energy-efficient blinds help to maintain the interior temperature, reducing the need for heating and cooling, thus saving on energy costs and creating a more comfortable environment. For south-facing window, we can recommend blind fabrics with a higher solar reflectance, which helps to reduce solar heating.

2. Light control

Commercial blinds enable the adjustment of natural light entering the room, which can be a significant advantage for offices or businesses where too much sunlight can create glare on computer screens or other visual displays. We manufacture a range of blind fabrics with varying shading levels to ensure you find the right level to suit the environment.

Our vertical blinds and venetian blinds offer a high level of light control because the louvres and slats can be tilted based on the sun’s position. Our cassette blackout blinds are perfect for environments where total darkness is needed.

3. Privacy

Blinds provide privacy, an important aspect for many businesses, such as clinics, law firms, offices, and restaurants. They allow you to control visibility into your workspace or business premises, helping to protect confidential information and improve security. This can be particularly important for ground floor offices where people walking past can look inside.

4. Aesthetics

Commercial blinds come in a variety of styles, colours, and materials, allowing businesses to align their window treatments with their branding or decor. We can produce commercial office blinds with blind components and fabrics that match a brand’s colours, contributing towards a professional and cohesive look within the workplace.

5. Durability

Our commercial blinds are designed to withstand heavy and frequent usage. They are made from high-quality, durable blind components, which we designed to handle the daily wear and tear of a busy workplace.

Our commercial roller blinds, like our heavy-duty R40 system, are especially durable when compared with competing roller blinds on the market. 

6. Maintenance

The exceptional durability of our blinds means that they require minimal maintenance. This means business activities won’t be disrupted by blind installers visiting to repair blinds. For added peace of mind, our complete made-to-measure blinds are backed by our lifetime warranty.

7. Noise reduction

Some commercial window treatments also offer noise reduction capabilities. This can be beneficial in busy, noisy urban areas, helping to reduce external distractions and help people focus.

8. Health benefits

By controlling the amount of sunlight that enters a room, blinds can reduce eyestrain and headaches in employees who spend a lot of time looking at screens. This can help reduce instances of employee absence, which keeps the HR department happy.

9. UV protection

We mentioned earlier that we can suggest blind fabrics with high solar reflectance. These fabrics provide protection from harmful UV rays, which can damage furniture and other items over time.
