Window shades, or window blinds, are a specific type of window covering that have been used urban households for decades. Ballarat Blinds manufacturers use a variety of materials to make these window shades such as wood, plastic, fabric and metal. These blinds can be adjusted from a close position to an open position and the other way around. The slats overlap on one another to block air, light and dust from coming in. Single piece blinds are also available. The term ‘blinds’ is commonly used as a generic term for all sorts of window coverings, including shutters, honeycomb shades, roller blinds, roman and wood blinds. These also include horizontal and vertical blinds. Depending on their country of origin and several other factors, Ballarat shutters and blinds are categorized in the following groups.
Venetian blinds are available with a number of manufacturers and online retailers in Australia. Typically, these blinds are made of horizontal slats that are positioned one above another. These blinds are generally slatted blinds that are made of plastic or metal. Wooden blinds are also available with some of the retailers online. These are usually hung up with the help of cords or tapes. All the slats can be rotated by almost 180 degrees. Traditionally, Venetian blinds are lifted with the help of lifting cords that pass through the slats. However, modern variations of a typical Venetian blind may also include rotational cords combined with the lifting cords. There are Ballarat Blinds manufacturers and retailers who sell these art-deco style blinds online.
BAL Rated Shutters/Fire Shutters
As more and more Australians move to country and semi-rural areas for a better lifestyle, and our urban sprawl takes homeowners closer to wooded and high vegetation areas, protection from bushfires has become increasingly important.
The weakest point in your home are your windows. If left unprotected during a bushfire, they may crack and shatter exposing the entire home to sparks and embers entry, possibly destroying your valuable property and possessions in the process. At Taylor and Stirling in conjunction with CW Products, we are committed to helping protect families and their homes.
CW Products designed and scientifically tested the FireSafe Roller Shutter System to comply with the stringent Bushfire Construction Standard AS3959-2009. In November 2009 FireSafe™ Bushfire Rated Roller Shutter System was tested by the CSIRO (Report # FSZ1379) and achieved Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) A40 (40kW/m2).
Made from heavy duty extruded slats and componentry, the FireSafe Roller Shutters provide important protection from heat and flying debris during a bushfire attack. They also operate as normal shutters at other times providing Security, Light & Heat Control, Window Shading and Privacy when needed. Available in a range of colours they can be motorised with remote controls or manually operated. Importantly each FireSafe Roller Shutter is also fitted with an authentication plate and serial number to certify compliance. These Ballarat shutters are easily available on the web.
Vertical blinds are less susceptible to strong winds and dirt. However, they are more fragile compared to horizontal (Venetian) blinds. They can be operated much easier compared to the horizontal window covers. you can find stationary blinds in some office doors that remain open for the most part of the day. These are usually made of hard plastic. These are widely used in cold storage rooms to prevent heat leakage. In warmer climates, vertical blinds keep the insects from intruding into homes and offices.
Roman window blinds are available in a wide range of finishes and sizes. These are versatile and durable blinds and may include slight style variations. Optional upgrades are also available. These are elegant window covers readily available in stores.
