Robust blinds reduce maintenance needs

Published:  11 January, 2011

CBS Blinds

The College blind from CBS Blinds is designed to be maintenance free so that facilities managers or school bursars do not have the problem of blind repairs and replacements. Strong components and tough fabrics are said to make these blinds virtually unbreakable, even where there is misuse. They come with a 5-year guarantee.

These blinds are operated by a gearbox and folding handle, which can be removable to prevent unauthorised use, or electricity.

Their excellent insulation qualities reduce energy consumption. The special fabric is porous to provide good air exchange, so the blinds are suitable for naturally ventilated buildings.

Side guides hold the blind steady, even when the windows are open.

College blinds are available from authorised distributors, and a full installation service is available.
