Vision Blinds

Vision blinds are a new concept which allows you to control the light while maintaining your view. Vision is a sheer fabric that gently filters and softens daylight whilst offering you the option of more privacy. The Vision blind therefore combines the ideal balance of privacy and light control with the fashionable, eye-catching trend of bold stripes and colour blocks.

Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds are made from pleated fabric that pull up to sit flat at the top of a window to hide from sight when open. Some pleated blinds have a honeycomb or cellular construction which gives them excellent insulating and sound absorption properties. Pleated Blinds can add texture to a room, and the way the sheer material filters light allows you to get just the right amount of shade and colour.

Blackout Blinds

A Blackout Blind can be either a roller blind with a specially coated fabric which stops any light getting through, or a Roman Blind with a blackout lining as opposed to a standard lining material. The Roman blind option allows to have the room facing fabric of your choice, whilst at the same time keeping the light out. A Roller blind with a thermal blackout coating can also increase the blinds insulating properties. The light preventing feature makes these blinds perfect for the bedroom. And they don’t have to be black - a full range of colours are available.

Motorised Blinds

Just about any type of blind can be fitted with a battery operated motorised mechanism with remote control. There are several advantages to this affordable approach:

  • Remove the need for unsightly chains or chords that spoil the look of the blind.
  • With no chords or chains, a potential safefy hazard to young children is removed.
  • You can raise or lower several blinds at a time at the push of a button, and from the comfort of your armchair.
  • Easy control of difficult to reach or ceiling blinds.
  • Motorised blinds can be fitted with a timer, allowing you to open and close blinds at pre-set times when you out of the house or on holiday, making it look like you’re at home. This increases your home security and gives you extra peace of mind.
  • Temperature sensors can be fitted to the blinds so that when too much sunshine falls on the window, the blind will close automatically, thus protecting fabric, rugs, carpets, or house plants from harmful levels direct sunlight.

Make it Safe

Make it safe is a campaign led by the British Blind and Stutter Association (BBSA), working with Government and the EU, which is dedicated to eliminating the risk to children associated with harzardous looped operating cords, chains and tapes used on window blinds. Barretts fully supports this campaign and our fitters are trained in installing a child-proof safety device. It’s worth noting that from February 2014 all newly fitted blinds with chords or chains will require a safety device fitted by law.
