Manufactured in our headquarters in Gosforth, Newcastle, our venetian blinds have been designed for both the luxury yacht market and the cruise and river cruise customer.

Solarglide Wooden Venetian Blinds

Solarglide manufacture venetian blinds in three styles; aluminium, wooden and leather wrapped. All the blinds operate in the same way regardless of the material being used. Venetian blinds offer the user complete control over light conditions; they can be tilted up or down offering a complete range of privacy options or they can be retracted fully up the window to reveal panoramic views of the world outside. The blinds can be made into a large array of colours, this is to allow interior designers to specify the style depending on the interior of the vessel. They have been developed and designed to be low maintenance, versatile while adding a classy touch.

A customer can choose from a range of different slat sizes; aluminium (15mm / 25mm / 35mm or 50mm) wood (25mm / 35mm or 50mm) and wrapped leather (35mm or 50mm). These particular blinds work well on yachts, as space is limited and the headrails are very narrow so they can fit into tight spaces and close to the window glass. If you are looking for a particular style or fabric, we are on hand to produce blinds that can feature standard slat colours (satin or matt finishes), as well as brushed, textured, perforated, embossed surfaces that create unique and exciting blinds.
