INTU blinds have been in the shadow of the better know Perfect Fit blinds for some time now. But with every day that passes they are growing in popularity and are becoming more and more prominent in the public consciousness. And for good reason too; they are practical, affordable and perhaps most importantly they look great! They work well on tilt and turn windows, patio doors, standard windows and even certain skylight windows. But in my opinion, they really come into their own when installed in a conservatory – they really are the ideal fit!
INTU blinds come in two different styles; bead-fit and screw-fit. The bead-fit blinds work off the same principle as the perfect fit blinds – the brackets slot in behind the rubber seal on UPVC windows. The screw-fit blinds allow INTU blinds to be installed onto windows that do not have the rubber seal – namely wooden window frames, or UPVC without suitable or strong robber seals. These look virtually identical to the bead-fit models, but are screwed into place as the name suggests. This is not possible with the perfect ft blinds.
INTU conservatory blinds look and work very similar to the perfect fit ranges, but the crucial difference is that whereas the perfect fit have a frame which runs all around the blind, INTU blinds simply have a headrail and a bottom bar. This gives them the advantage that they can be fitted on windows where the edges of the glass have obstructions – ie window handles, high ledges etc then the INTU blinds can still be fitted whereas perfect fit will not work. This headrail can be colour coordinated to match the window frame colour. They come in white as standard as this is the most popular window colour, but we can also supply in brown or silver if desired.
INTU conservatory blinds have numerous advantages over traditional blinds, including:
- No drilling or damage to the window frame, the blinds simply clip into place on brackets that slot behind the rubber seal.
- Blinds sit flush to the frames, leaving the window sills clutter free, creating space to put picture frames and ornaments.
- A huge range of fabric colours and textures to match your interior design scheme
- Child-safe – no loose cords or loops
- Easily removable for cleaning
INTU blinds come in three different types:
Pleated – We have a huge selection of pleated blind fabrics available for INTU blinds. We can supply numerous plain colours, but we now have some exciting pleated prints which can add a vibrant touch to your windows. For all pleated blind ranges, we recommend the ASC and SPC fabrics, which have a solar protective coating on the rear side. This helps to reflect a great deal of the heat away from the window for summer months, retain the warmth through the winter months, and also significantly reduce the glare without making the room too dark. Pleated fabrics are ideal as conservatory blinds, and work especially well as conservatory roof blinds. We can also supply pleated blackout fabrics, which can cut up to 90% of the light coming through the window.
Roller – The Roller blind ranges give the greatest selection of fabrics, colours and patterns of the three ranges. They have a simple tensioned system, and user simply slides the bottom rail up and down to position the blind to the desired level. INTU blackout roller blinds are the most effective as they virtually cut out all of the natural light that comes in through the window when the blind is fully closed. This is ideal for bedrooms and for the reduction of glare on computer screens/television sets.
Venetian – INTU venetian blinds are one of our most popular blind ranges. We can offer them as aluminium venetian in the 25mm slat. They are available in a vast selection of colours and finishes, and have the advantage of allowing the user to tilt the slats to allow the desired amount of light into the room. They ideal for security as they can be tilted to prevent outside viewers from being able to see in through the windows, without giving the impression that no one is at home, as drawn curtains would give. Also, they are very easy to clean, anything that is spilt onto the slats can be wiped off easily and quickly.
