College Blind ®
blinds that won’t break
The College Blind has a great reputation as being ‘the blind that won’t break’ and it is certainly true! With a 10 year guarantee, this blind is excellent for environments where a standard blind would break, be misused or damaged easily. Its unique features have ensured its success in numerous applications throughout the UK.
APPLICATION the College Blind is chosen for teaching rooms, classrooms, communal areas, waiting areas, FE colleges, secondary and primary schools for glare control or room darkening.
OPERATION the College Blind is manually operated by a gearbox and crank rod with folding handle, which may be removable to prevent unauthorised use. A blind with crank operation avoids the ligature risk and frequent breakages associated with cords and chains. Additionally, the crank handle will also operate at an angle, for example across benches in a science room. See separate entry for electric operation.
SIZES approximate maximum sizes: width 4.0 metres; height: 4.0 metres; area: 13 square metres. Maximum sizes may vary according to the weight of fabric used.
GRAPHICS standard fabrics are excellent for printing logos, text or images in one or more colours.
MAINTENANCE FREE the College Blind is built to last, even in the harshest conditions, with a ten year guarantee, and normally requires no maintenance, thanks to strong components and original design. The fabric is firmly anchored in the fabric roller and bottom profile and cannot be pulled out.
STRONG FABRIC ROLLER allows blind widths up to four metres which often saves costs by reducing the number of blinds required on a project.
CABLE SIDE GUIDES stainless steel cables can’t be cut with scissors and ensure the blind is held steady if the windows are opened for natural ventilation. Fabrics are available with good porosity to allow air exchange, allowing classrooms to breathe.
OPERATION strong crank handles take the effort out of operation, and have locks to prevent over winding.
