Komfort now supply a range of vertical blinds. These are created from a fabric that meets fire regulations specified by European standards in accordance to BS 5867 Part 2 Type B. The fabric has either been woven with non-flammable fibre glass, Trevira CS or impregnated/coated with fire retardants.
Solar and optical properties of fabrics can be used to assist in the design of temperature control systems within buildings and the installation of window blinds can be more cost effective than installing an air conditioning system to control the heat within a building. The installation of suitable window blinds can reduce the glare within a building, which is particularly relevant where computers are used intensively. In addition to this there are legal health and safety regulations for areas with display screen equipment (i) (ii) require that ‘windows shall be fitted with a suitable system of adjustable covering to attenuate the daylight that falls on the workstation’.
