Gearbox operated blinds with detachable handle fitted at pool area

  • 10 Oct 2014

A total of ten blinds of 1.9m wide by 3.9m drop were installed, whilst a bespoke shaped head box was incorporated to complement the roof detailing, with black side channels also fitted to match the window frames. 

Also used was the SHY UK Solarblock blackout fabric, a robust and water resistant material used to enhance privacy and allow for light to be blocked out of a room.

A gearbox was located on one side of each head box and operated by a detachable handle to prevent unauthorised use of the blinds and to prevent young children from any danger.
