Sectors we work in 

Blackout blinds


For over thirty years, we’ve been helping to improve the comfort and working environment for your staff. Installing office roller blinds helps to reduce glare, pand provide privacy, as well as creating a smart, professional look.

We also work with construction and fitout contractors, providing commercial roller blinds, vertical blinds, curtains and rooflight blinds, helping them to complete their projects to a high standard.

Vertical blinds - FOD


Designed to increase comfort for patients and allow staff to work more efficiently, our range of blinds for healthcare settings includes roller blinds, vertical blinds, blackout blinds and curtains.

We are experienced working within the constraints of hospital environments, and understand the unique needs of patients and hospital staff. 

Winterbourne Academy 1500x1125


We understand the unique needs of schools and the particular health and safety requirements in an education environment. Child safety mechanisms are part of our range, including chain clips on roller blinds to prevent injury or breakage, and detachable crank handles to prevent unauthorised use.

Our installers are fully DBS-accredited, and we’ll work out-of-hours to avoid disruption to your schedule, and ensure the working area is left clean, tidy and ready for use once the work is complete.

Case Study

Environmentally-Conscious Roller Blinds at Filwood Green Business Centre, Bristol

We installed chain-operated and motorised roller blinds at the BREEAM-Outstanding rated Filwood Green Business Centre in Bristol. 

The client was keen to ensure the installation was as sustainable as possible and selected Low-VOC and PVC-free fabrics to ensure a healthy indoor environment. Fascia covers were also installed for a sleek, modern finish.

Case Study

Bat-sensitive Blinds for Gloucestershire College, Forest of Dean Campus

We installed motorised vertical and blackout blinds to Gloucestershire College's new Forest of Dean Campus.

Due to the location of the campus surrounded by woodland, the client required light sensors to be installed, prompting the blinds to close automatically and reduce potential light pollution for the local bat population.
