Custom Solutions

As experts in the design and installation of unique blinds and shading solutions, we have seen and solved a range od technical challenges over the years and are always looking for ways to expand out capabilities.


With our years of experience, we have seen a vast array of shading challenges faced by clients in nearly every industry. This has given us a solid foundation of knowledge in how to troubleshoot and fix even the most complicated issues.

From unique shapes, upside down, sloping, or horizontal plane blinds, to curved sloping windows, rooftop swimming pools, tensioned atrium blinds, and external blinds for harsh saltwater environments, we have manufactured, delivered, installed, and commissioned a multitude of custom-made blinds and shading solutions to projects throughout Europe and have even worked on residential projects in the Middle East.

Some of our most recent projects include:

  • Exterior shading for a large skylight with ‘standoff’ legs
  • Exterior zip blinds to an exposed 12th-floor penthouse
  • Shaped large-span vertical and horizontal plane and curved blinds for a luxury chalet in the French Alps
  • A bank of 17 unique, individually-shaped blinds to a country retreat in the Cotswolds
  • A series of arched 10m high blinds for a church
  • An oversized triangular bottom-up blind with a matching top-down roller for a Scottish lighthouse.

On all of our most successful projects, our team has had early involvement with the stakeholder and principal designer/architect. This allowed us to recommend enabling works such as power take-off locations, floor channels, additional beams, and floor boxes for maximum effect.
