Plass Wood Venetians 50mm
Our Plass wood blinds are PVC which has been moulded and printed to look like real wood. We mainly use the PVC in areas with high humidity, like bathrooms, as it is more suited to moisture than real wood is.

Our roller screen is in essence a roller blind which stops glare and UV exposure, but still allows the user a view. We use the Sheerweave 2000 & Sheerweave 4500 fabrics for this purpose. It is a woven, high tech fabric comprised of fibreglass and vinyl. It has a UV blockage of 95% and an openness factor of 5%. It is also flame retardant and Greenguard certified.
Our Roman blinds are made with side controls which will stop the blind in any position. We have a wide variety of fabrics, which have been specifically tested for using as Roman blinds, as not all fabrics are suited for this purpose.
