What Are Integral Blinds?

Integral blinds, also known as integrated blinds, are window blinds that are encapsulated within double or triple-glazed units of windows or doors. These blinds can be tilted or raised and lowered to control light and privacy. There are also several operating systems available including magnetic and electric controls.

Since integral blinds are protected within the glass unit, they are shielded from dust, moisture, and damage, resulting in minimal maintenance requirements. They also don’t gather dust as conventional blinds do.

Being sealed within the glazing unit, integral blinds are less prone to damage from accidental knocks or environmental factors. They can last longer than traditional blinds, which are exposed to wear and tear.

The space between the glass panes provides an additional layer of insulation, contributing to better energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer through windows. This can lead to lower heating and cooling costs over time.

Integral blinds offer a sleek and contemporary appearance to windows and doors. They are available in various colours and styles to complement different interior designs.

Integral blinds can be cordless, which eliminates the risk of entanglement for children or pets. This makes them a safer option compared to traditional blinds with cords or chains.

Since integral blinds are situated between the glass panes, they don’t occupy any extra space within the room. This can be particularly advantageous for smaller rooms, areas with limited space, and when used in opening doors.

These blinds can offer UV protection by blocking harmful ultraviolet rays from entering the room, which can help prevent fading of furniture, carpets, and other interior furnishings.

Dependant on the system you choose, you have the possibility of pairing your integral blinds with your homes smart systems. As well as this, the blinds can be synchronised and operated in groups.
