Double Glazed Sealed Units Supply OnlySunshade Blinds offer a double glazed sealed units supply only service and can quote for all your requirements.  We mainly supply to double glazing fitters and building companies.


Sunshade Blinds can make any combination of sealed units, any shape, any size. We can create toughened sealed units, oversized units that other companies cannot make. We use the latest technology available, and are constantly upgrading our equipment to keep up with the latest industry trends.


Double glazed sealed units provide sound proofing, insulation and shading especially if it is replacing existing ill-fitting single glazed windows.


Our double glazed sealed units come assembled and permanently sealed within a double or triple glazed unit cavity. Once sealed in the blinds are in a totally dust free environment.  This means that the blinds always appear new and have the added bonus of not needing any cleaning unlike conventional external blinds.


Another important factor if the blinds are to be installed in a situation where Hygiene and privacy are a must. Double glazed sealed units overcome any concerns about blinds holding the ‘superbug’ MRSA and other associated bacteria.  This is overcome by encapsulating the blinds within the cavity of the double glazed unit.  This provides a great way to maintain a safe environment.


Using double glazed sealed units leads to improved U-Values as well as improved solar control.  All this also means that there is reduced heat gain. The system uses a magnetic control system as their operating system. The raise/lower and tilt/turn systems have the ability to be operated manually by cord, electronically by an external motor or by an internal electric motor contained within the head- rail. The Sunshade Blinds double glazed sealed units are supplied in a range of metallised and material fabrics and colours.

Sealed Unit Double Glazing

Sealed Unit Double GlazingSo what is sealed unit double glazing?  In simple terms it consists of Venetian style blinds that are installed inside the double glazed sealed unit. They are contained between the two sheets of double glazing glass. Because these blinds never require cleaning they are a boon to house owners and property managers.  They allow you your privacy as well as shielding furnishings eyes and skin from the sun’s rays. If they are used in conservatories, they provide the perfect solution for reducing the glare on the TV screen.


The blinds are made from aluminium blades.  They can be raised, lowered and tilted with ease using various mechanical options.  This provides an effective solution to diffuse light and obscure the view from nosy people outside the room.


They can be supplied with the following mechanisms to raise, lower and tilt the aluminium blades:


  • Manual Push Block. Push Block operation of integrated blinds is a simple and reliable manual system. This allows the blinds to operate with surprising speed and grace. You are able to raise, lower and tilt by simply sliding the push blocks along the side border rails. The blinds are moved using a magnetic transmission that operates through the glass.  This allows the unit’s hermetic seal.
  • Single Rail Push Block. The integrated blinds that utilise rail push blocks are a simple and reliable manual system. They operate with speed and grace. You can raise, lower and tilt the blinds by simply sliding the push blocks along the border rails.
  • Electronic Control Unit (ECU). Integrated blinds that are operated by an ECU low voltage electronic system. This uses a wireless magnetic transmission plate. The ECU is battery powered and raises, lowers and tilts the blinds.  You can use the up, down and tilt buttons move the blinds. The ECU is rechargeable so you do not need to worry about replacing batteries.
