Guthrie Douglas manufactures a wide range of high-quality rooflight blinds for a range of commercial applications. They provide superior temperature and light control whilst having minimal effect on the building’s aesthetic appeal.
Why apply blinds to a rooflight?
Large areas of glass can significantly add to a building’s character. The increasing desire to bring natural light into our homes from every angle, together with recent advances in glazing technology, mean that Rooflights are getting larger whilst window frames are getting smaller.
Rooflight shading systems must cover these spaces in an elegant way whilst coping with extremes in temperature, solar radiation, and wind speed. Non-engineered systems will invariably deteriorate as pressures can result in fabrics coming loose, creases or sagging appearing. Not all skylight shading systems are equal. It is important to choose wisely.
Effective shading systems
When it comes to shading, we know the correct system is dependent on building design, material and solar direction. Our Rooflight Shading Systems have been expertly designed to solve the puzzles created by modern glazing technology. Able to exquisitely shade rooflights the shading system can also be engineered for sloped glass, and bottom up applications.
Blackout fabrics and tensioned systems can be concealed within the frame for roof and window blinds that provide an elegant finish. We have helped hundreds of businesses maximise energy efficiency and improve employee morale through effective shading. Our rooflight blinds are also strong enough to cope with extremes in both temperature and wind speed.
Why choose us?
Guthrie Douglas create blind systems tailored to your individual requirements using years of experience. Fabric is dynamic. It expands, contracts, and stretches in response to forces in its surrounding environment. If the system which holds it does not adapt to these forces, the fabric will wrinkle, distort, or tear. This is why only a correctly engineered, tensioned shading system can offer complete stability.
We ensure that maximum performance and a long service life is guaranteed as we are often involved in overseeing the installation of our own blinds. Our engineering expertise combined with our truly bespoke approach deliver commercial blinds that work in tune with your building design and performance.
