Venetians are a familiar sight to everyone and they have been used in some form for many years. A rigid headrail carrying horizontal slats which can be from steel, wood or aluminium, houses the controls for raising and lowering the slats and also for tilting them to a desired angle.
The slats can vary in width from 15mm up to 50mm and these various sizes attract different names such as "micro", "mini" etc. but these names are non-technical terms and the actual size should always be specified.
Operation can be from the most simple cord lock to sophisticated automatic controls.
Deans Venetian blinds can also be supplied to fit within the partition of double glazing which is especially convenient in large office areas to give privacy between glazed units.
