Verticals are great for when you are up in a high-rise, and you need privacy from a neighbouring high-rise apartment etc.

Vertical blinds are a very practical and effective type of window covering which affords the user top be able to adjust the angle of the slats which can let more light or sun into a room, or to close the slats and block the incoming sun etc.

Verticals are great for when you are up in a high-rise, and you need privacy from a neighbouring high-rise apartment etc.

Originally Verticals typically had the chains at the bottom connecting all the slats but now a days, it is the norm for them to be “chainless” or “sewn-in-weights”.

Both options are very neat and “non fussy” These two types of blinds are a lot less likely to get tangled with feet or children on the floor or pets etc.

If entanglement occurs, it can often cause unnecessary damage to the carrier in the track.

Tracks are now able to WAND operated in which you just need to swivel the rod or they can be the traditional method which is chain and cord. This type needs to be attached to the wall for child safety reasons. Chain to operate the swivel of the slats and the cord to open/close the blind. Verticals can come in quite long lengths and are quite a light and easy blind to operate, even when they are up to 5.5m in width.

127mm width slats are the most common width of slat but there are also 89mm and 100mm wide slats which can often fit inside a window reveal or when you don’t want the extra width of the wider slat. Verticals can also have a shaped or angled bottom edge which is ideal for some angled windows. The length of the blind can be 4m or more which makes them very versatile for various size windows and for entry and foyers which often have the 2storey effect.

The length of the cord controls can be lower than the blind itself which is handy when you have a window in a stair well where the window is higher than usual.

Pelmets are also an option for Verticals which offer a nice dressy look to them, and pelmets can be colour coded or matching fabric covered. There is also the Bull-Nose face of the track or a plain option. There are a wide variety of fabrics as well as colours to choose from for Verticals and they can but very suitable in bedrooms as well as living areas.

In the event of a damaged slat, it is easy and cheap to just buy more slats if needed. Sliding doors are often a popular choice for verticals in that you can open or close the blind sufficiently enough to be able to use the door and still have the blind covering the window etc.
