Venetian Blinds

We have a variety of both Aluminium Venetian Blinds and Wood Venetian Blinds
Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds consist of horizontal, overlapping slats that are generally either made of aluminium or timber. The slats are suspended from a headrail and supported by ladder braid or ladder tape. Aluminium slats, for internal use, are available in 15mm or 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm and 80mm widths. Aluminium slats are also produced in 65mm and 80mm widths primarily for external use but can also be used internally. Timber slats are available in 25mm, 50mm and 63mm widths.
