Perfect Fit blinds are available as a roller, venetian or pleated blind. They are designed for UPVC windows and doors and used extensively in conservatories. The blinds fit directly onto the double glazed window without drilling or screwing into the widow frame. This unique blind system enables the blinds to move with the windows or doors when opening and closing, the blind fits into a frame which is attached to the window with brackets which slide between the glass and the rubber glazing bead. The Perfect fit frame fits flush up against the window so there are no gaps down the sides of the blind. This gives greater privacy and also can save on heating bills by retaining heat in winter. Because the blinds sit in the gap between the glass and the window frame as well as being extremely neat they don’t take up any space up on your window sill or have any unsightly cords or controls making it the ideal child safety product.
