PVC Vertical Blinds For Schools

If you’re in charge of a school, then perhaps you’re in a quandary as to which type of blinds you should have on your school windows as quality coverage. Perhaps it’s time for a new set to replace the ones you have had before and you’re on a limited budget. 

Whatever the case is, you’ll be looking for something that is cost-effective, while at the same time offering the right type of coverage you need that suits the classrooms they’ll be in, and the types of lessons they’ll be having.

PVC Vertical Blinds – A Natural Choice For Schools

Naturally you’ll also need them to be relatively maintenance free or at least be easy to clean and long lasting. We would suggest PVC as a potential material, used in vertical blinds. Firstly, what is PVC?

What is PVC?

All polymers come from petroleum and they are hydrocarbon compounds. PVC consists not only of plastics, but of different materials each with their own characteristics. There are natural polymers, like cellulose, and there’s also amber, rubber and shellac which are man-made.

Why are PVC Vertical Blinds a Good Choice For Schools?

PVC vertical blinds are elegant and sleek and offer great value for money, but what makes them really good value for schools is that they’re easy to clean and easy to control with a wand control system that makes them really safe around children. They fit any window regardless of size, and if they’re an unusual shape, then they can be custom made to fit. If you have sliding or French doors, the versatile PVC vertical blind range we have here at Knight Shades is really impressive, and you’ll easily find something which suits.

Durable and Robust PVC Vertical Blinds

PVC vertical blinds are robust and durable, as well as functional, so you’ll certainly get a return on your investment. The slats are also easy to replace, so if one or two become damaged they can be easily replaced, rather than having to replace the whole set.

If you’re watching a film or giving a presentation via PC or projector, then blinds are perfect, because they can shut out just the right amount of light, so you have more control over privacy and light.

Why Choose Venetian Blinds For Schools?

If you're in charge of the school budget then you'll probably have a long list of school needs. Perhaps it includes window coverings. Your priorities in this area may be more focused on the functional aspect rather than the aesthetics. You probably rely on blinds rather than curtains because they're such a hazard with young children, and they're more likely to get damaged.

Venetian Blinds – An Excellent Choice For School Windows

What type of blinds you've had in the past may largely have depended on your budget, and what's been the norm for the past few years at your school. If you are thinking of changing, then perhaps you should consider Venetian blinds, because they really are the perfect choice for school windows. The benefits are considerable for an educational environment, and in this blog, we're going to be going over this with you so you can make an informed decision.

With Venetian blinds you'll have far more control over the amount of light you allow in, and this is especially important if you have situations where you're giving a presentation or you're using a projector. Some blinds only cut out the light or let light in, however with Venetian blinds you can let a minimal amount of light in or you can close a minimum of light out because you have more control over the slats. That sort of precise control over the amount of light is really helpful in a classroom situation where you need to act quickly.

Maintenance is Simple and Almost Non-Existent

You'll also find they don't need to be removed to clean them, and they don't even need to be washed when they're hanging on the windows either. All you need to is wipe occasionally or run a duster over the individual slats.

The designs we offer are extremely versatile too, as they come in a variety of materials, styles, colours and widths, so it doesn't matter how big or small your windows are, they'll be a set of blinds that fit. Materials to choose from are usually timber, PVC or aluminium. So if you want something plain and functional for the majority of the classrooms and perhaps something a little different for teachers areas, rest rooms etc. then you can choose from a versatile range here at Knight Shades.

You can either have them professionally installed by one of our trained team members or you can install them yourselves. We have them in various sizes or you can have them custom made.
