The history of the Venetian blind is longer than one might initially imagine. The origin of the venetian blind can be traced back to France. The window grilles, which at that time still consisted of immovable slats, were first mentioned by name in France in the Middle Ages, whereby the name jalousie can be traced back to the French word for jealousy. This can be explained by the fact that the blinds of that time were inspired by the window grilles of oriental harem buildings, which served to shield the chambers of a lover's wives from outside glances in order to counteract the jealousy of the harem owner.
It was not until 14 April 1812 that the carpenter Cochot applied for a patent for the invention of the venetian blind with adjustable slats in Paris: This concept has formed the basis for venetian blinds as we know them ever since.
Today, Venetian blinds are something completely commonplace and are present in virtually every room, either in this form or in another variation. In addition to the above-mentioned function of privacy protection, they also fulfil the task of regulating the incidence of light or provide shade on sunny days while working at the desk or relaxing on the sofa.
With venetian blinds you can individually determine the incidence of light and additionally provide more privacy.
Decide for yourself when you want to let the sun's rays or the looks of others in!
This innovative sun and privacy protection is available in two versions: Basic and Premium. Our Basic Venetian blinds have aluminium slats with a width of 25mm, controlled by cords to pull the slats up and down and a knob to tilt them front to back. The Premium Venetian blinds have also aluminum slats and come in a choice of widths of 16mm and 25mm.
For operation you can choose the conventional pull cord, but also the torsion bar, a chain hoist, a crank, a pull cord in the torsion bar. We also stock Duolux blinds which have a combination of the functionality of a pleated blind and the classic look of Venetian blinds where both rails are controlled in the same way as in a pleated blind, using handles attached to the rails, and the blinds are tilted either with a plastic knob or button mounted on the upper rail. Recently, we have also started to offer operation by an electric motor with rechargeable battery. No batteries are necessary and a battery charge of 6-8 hours is sufficient for 6-8 months with standard use. A handheld transmitter allows the operation of several blinds in the house. Premium blinds can also be successfully mounted on box windows, to give you a between-glass blind controlled with cords and a knob. Premium Venetian blinds are also ideal for windows with unusual shapes - even triangles or trapezoids are no problem for us. Custom blinds are controlled by a cord and a knob, except that because of the shape, you can't lift them up. The slats are then tilted by turning the plastic knob. Both blind variants, Premium and Basic, can be fitted with side guide-ropes that keep the blind in a fixed position relative to the window.
