It’s hard to imagine a better choice for large windows and sliding doors than Panel Blinds or ‘Panel Glides’. The look and functionality are both simple, elegant and free of any fuss.
Panel Blinds are a wonderful solution for covering large glass areas, blocking light and maintaining privacy. And when you’re in the mood to open up airy spaces to let light and views flood in, the panels glide away smoothly into a neat, discreet stack in just seconds.
It pays to have plenty of option when you’re dealing with the large areas of colour and fabric needed to address large doors and windows. Happily, the collection of materials, fabrics, colours and textures available at Country is a broad palette that’ll allow you to complement your décor perfectly. Designed, manufactured and installed by Country, Panel Blinds are an investment in quality.
Country offers between three and 10 panels in a flexible system. While in most applications we recommend four panels per side for an even look, should you need a total of 10 panels for larger windows, we’re able to easily split the tracks and offset the panels for even overlap. Should you ever damage a panel, it’s no problem – replacement and cleaning is simple because sewn-on Velcro on the back of each panel lets you take them on and off as often as you wish. This same Velcro system provides easy adjustment should you ever find that your Panel Blinds have become slightly crooked. Remove, align, re-attach. It takes just seconds to achieve the perfect look.
Panel Blinds created by Country come standard with reinforcement battens held in soft fold bottom pockets. Some lesser designs make use of exposed metal reinforcing bars that repeatedly ‘clang’ in a light breeze, creating an annoying nuisance.
Should you choose Country’s premium option of pelmets running over the top of the Panel Glide, the brackets, track and panel tops are neatly concealed. Adding pelmets also increases thermal efficiency. Painted or fabric pelmets even offer you the chance to match or contrast with your panels for a beautiful designer look.
Like most Panel Blinds, designs by Country are operated using a wand. Unlike others that are fitted to the front edge for all to see, our wands are tucked discreetly behind the leading blade for a cleaner look.
Off-the-shelf Panel Blinds are always a compromise to some degree. The Country difference is that we measure and make each blind to match your home perfectly. This gives us the freedom to choose whether the front or rear glide slides across first, enhancing your privacy. We explore every option and create a design that’s as neat, functional and beautiful as it can be, so that you can enjoy all the advantages that Panel Glide blinds have to offer.
Same beautiful look, even less effort! At Country, we can custom build motorisation and remote control into your Panel Blinds – wall-mounted, hand-held or smartphone actuated. Find out more today.
