Fabric Panel Blinds
As mentioned in the introduction to the Blinds Category, panelblinds consist of sliding panels of fabric 500 – 700mm wide generally. See also the discussion in Roman Blinds, of style options which the panelblind shares with romans.
The track at the top is a multi-channel aluminium extrusion which is not particularly attractive when the panels are drawn back. Although many blind manufacturers supply the product like that as complete, there have been recent attempts to make the hardware more attractive or to cover it with something like the extruded pelmet section in plastic that used to be available for vertical blinds – not nice.
Andersons’ panel blinds include a fascia or mini-pelmet of 120mm depth, fully covered in the actual blind fabric. This fascia is included in the price for panel blinds, but for roller blinds, it is offered as an option as for example with bonded roller blinds in our next section.
