Neat and unobtrusive

Tilt-only magnetic blinds from BetweenGlassBlinds were recently installed in every new external window on a refurbished specialist mental health care home in Bushey.

The project’s focus was to create a number of specialist flats within the mental health care home facility in Bushey, Hertfordshire.

As an increased safety measure, the integral blinds were fitted between specially toughened, clear laminated glass. BetweenGlassBlinds worked with the team at Window Care Herts, to ensure the magnetic blinds could function smoothly through thicker glass and technicians from both companies visited the project to make bespoke, on-site adaptations to the integral blinds.

The magnetic blinds are operated with a neat and unobtrusive sliding magnetic block which is located around the perimeter of the unit. This means the blinds work on a completely cordless system.

BetweenGlassBlinds was asked to make the magnetic block detachable so only staff could operate the blinds and patients could be protected from any unforeseen dangers.

The tilt-only magnetic blinds, locked between the two panes of glass, protect blinds from dirt, damage and grime, making maintenance and upkeep very simple.

In healthcare establishments, like hospitals or specialist care units, these provide the perfect solution when privacy is needed and for infection control concerns that non-integral blinds can present.
