Internal Mini Blind IGUs

Internal Mini Blind IGUs assembled and permanently sealed within the dual glazing cavity. Once sealed in this dust free environment, the blinds always appear new and require no cleaning, unlike external blind systems.

This is an important feature to be considered at the design stage of between the glass blinds, where formal specification and elegance are required.

Solar Energy is made up of visible light (53.5%), infra-red (45%) and a small amount of UV radiation.

The amount of visible light that passes through a double glazed Mini Blind IGU can vary from 82% to 1%.  This ability of the system allows it a universal application to many varied activities:

  • High light transmission for activities requiring a degree of attention (school, offices)
  • Low light transmission (such as meeting rooms, multimedia areas or operating theatres)
  • Clean environments requiring privacy such as hospitals
  • Decrease internal heating, avoiding the cost of expensive air conditioning and sun damage to furnishings, fabrics and flooring.
  • Internal blinds can be used for many applications including doors, sliding doors, residential windows, commercial windows and office partitions

Mini Blind IGUs are available in a wide variety of glass types to provide privacy and cleanliness. Internal Mini Blind IGUs also control the amount of infra-red energy passing through the window and consequently reduces the internal heating effect, thus reducing the cost of expensive air conditioning.  By offering some control over the quantity of UV radiation, Mini Blind IGUs can reduce the chromatic deterioration which occurs to furnishing and fabrics.

Glass is a product that we consider to be static and inflexible.  However, in a sealed unit, the internal pressure can vary according to the weather conditions (i.e. temperature and altitude).  We have taken this into consideration to allow for the correct operation of the integral blinds regardless of the weather conditions.

We offer a wide variety of Mini Blind colors, unit thicknesses, glass compositions, sizes, glass thickness, spacer materials, and spacer thicknesses.

Minimum size is 12" x 12" & Max size is 78" x 102"
