Materials and workmanship
Wood- Made from revolutionary, lightweight Normandy wood exhibiting a flamboyant grain with plenty
of character and texture. Treated with prescription wood conditioning reducing in service shrinking and
expansion
Slats – Are all quarter sawn providing the blind with superior stability and durability with slats less
susceptible to inherent cupping, twisting and bowing. Also the resultant tight straight grain of quarter cut
wood enriches the wood’s character.
Manufacturing – Exceptional craftsmanship with trouble free design and engineering ensure long term
performance and value. We feel the best window covering is the result of meticulous control in each step
of its creation.
Hardware – Our tilter system delivers even, precise and incremental movement when operating the
slats making opening and closing the slats a breeze. Not to be outdone our patent pending “Elite” cord lift
operation makes lifting and lowering the blind child’s play.
Finish – Durable multiple step sanding and coating system creating deep brilliant finishes on wood grains
and silk smooth finishes on solid colours.
Options
Colours – Slats are available in a range of 16 solid and stain colours.
Slat sizes – 50mm and 63.5mm slat size for a contemporary look.
Bottom rail – Innovative concealed bottom rail caps allowing better light control and preventing damage
to the window sill.
Head rail – Elegant steel head rail in 7 available colours to colour coordinate with the blind and the
interior.
Privacy – A “holeless” slat option offering enhanced control and total privacy plus providing that element
of cutting edge interior design.
Design – Available with multitude of tassel designs and cord colours as well as the choice of the control
position to accentuate the home furnishings.
