Conservatories can become very hot in summer and one way to help to keep them cool is to install fully opening roof vents. The vents can be manually or electrically actuated. Pleated roof blinds will provide help with the heat and glare but the blinds must retract when the window vent is open.The actuator, if electric or screw jack, if manual prevents the the blind travelling from top to bottom.
The snappy solution is to make one pleated roof blind in which the top section goes to the top and the bottom section goes to the bottom. The roof blind can be fully opened or closed across the roof vent window. The roof blind can be retracted both ways and the vent opened to allow hot air to escape. Baileys Blinds show many images of conservatory roof blinds on our Facebook on www.baileysblind.com.
There are sometimes situations where you cannot open the windows in a conservatory after perfect fit blinds have been fitted to the windows. The perfect fit frame thickens the window frame approximately 10mm preventing the window handle rotating. Fortunately Baileys Blinds have a snappy solution to this problem.
The window handle can be easily removed and a white plastic spacer is inserted between the window handle and the window frame. After the window handle is tightened down there is sufficient clearance between handle and perfect fit frame to allow the window to be opened.
When fitted to the window handle the white plastic spacer is not obtrusive and appears to be part of the original window opening mechanism. Baileys Blinds show many more pictures of perfect fit blinds which can be found on the Facebook link on our website.
The doors surrounding the stage area at The Apex Venue in Bury St Edmunds have vision panels which allow people to look into the performance and for the audience to be distracted by movement in the surrounding service areas. Baileys Blinds were asked by St Edmundsbury Borough Council to provide a solution to this problem.

Baileys Blinds making vertical blinds by high tech machine
Baileys Blinds use a high tech computer controlled Technolight TS 2000 machine to make the slats for our vertical blinds.
The TS 2000 cuts, punches and welds a top and bottom pocket and automatically inserts a hanger into the slat. The finish is very neat every time and the machine allows Baileys Blinds to cope with either very large or small quantities of vertical blinds.
The TS 2000 uses ultrasonic welding technology. Baileys Blinds can manufacture vertical blinds in black out PVC material which does
not have unsightly stitch marks for the top hanger or bottom pocket.www.baileysblinds.com.
