TIMBER FRENCH DOORS WITH INTEGRATED VENETIAN BLINDS
This first floor flat in Newcastle had draughty French doors with free-hanging Venetian blinds in-front of them. Great for privacy whilst still letting in light but bad for using the doors and difficult to maintain dust-free. The solution? New high-security French doors with Venetian blinds inside the double-glazed units. No more dusting of each separate vane, no more climbing through dangling ropes and the same degree of privacy and daylight as before.
The Italian-made blinds work on a neat principle of magnetic drives. Using a cord on the inside of the room, a circular magnet is spun round. This in-turn spins a corresponding magnet inside the glazing unit and this drives the Venetian blind up and down, or opens and closes the vanes.
