ABOUT CONSERVATORY BLINDS
Conservatory blinds can be used to control solar gain in summer; they also reduce heat loss in winter. There are five main types: Roller Conservatory Blinds, Pleated Conservatory Blinds, Roman Conservatory Blinds, Pinoleum Conservatory Blinds, and Metal Venetian Conservatory Blinds. All can fit awkward shapes in the conservatory roof, including triangular glazed areas. Operating options include wand operation, hand crank operation, and powered crank operation. Pinoleum is the most traditional type of conserv-atory blind, giving a Colonial look with dappled light. Leading UK suppliers of conservatory blinds are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
