At Finnestra, we specialise in working outside of the box. Whether it be a full glass facade with external shading or a single large blind for a gable end, we have it covered!
Although beautiful, large windows often pose challenges for heat gain and reflected light inside a building, making living and working inside them an issue, particularly in the summer months.
This issue can easily be controlled in smaller windows via curtains and blinds but providing the same coverage for large spans of glass is not often as straightforward. Many of our industry colleagues are limited by the size and scope of their equipment and supply partners: the largest blind most UK factories can produce measures 3m x 4m.
Anything larger than this typically results in a patchwork of many smaller blinds which can lead to unsightly gaps in the fabric and work against the heat and light prevention in a way that a single piece of fabric will not.
Over the years we have partnered with many architects to assist in the creation and installation of oversized blinds. These blinds are built to custom dimensions up to 6m wide with a 30m drop and can be fully tensioned, geared and motorised.
Finnestra can also manufacture Bottom Up floor concealed blinds up to 6m wide x 6m drop, internally or externally installed side-opening blinds up to 10m wide (ideal for curtain wall systems) and triangular tensioned blinds up to 6m wide and 15m high perfect for domed glazed structures often found in airports, shopping centres and landmark civic developments such as theatres and hospitals.
We love working with architects to manage big and technically challenging designs and work hard to provide the perfect blinds for their clients. For more information about our oversized blinds or to discuss your latest project, get in touch with the team at Finnestra today.
