School Blinds: Why Made to Measure is Best
When it comes to school, we all know it can be hard to concentrate at the best of times, but with the annoyance of sunlight, heat and glare, kids don’t stand a chance of being able to stay focused unless they’re in a comfortable and well maintained environment to learn.
Having said this, many blinds companies offer school blinds as a standard size. This does not offer a controlled solution to the amount of light that enters the classroom, as ill-fitted blinds can still let in unwanted sunlight, even when they are fully closed!
Contrary to this, made to measure blinds offer the perfect solution to light control in commercial environments, with sun and heat reflective backings available. We measure the intended windows so we can be sure for a perfect fit every time. This way, you can get on with teaching in the right sort of environment, improving concentration levels in the classroom and potentially preventing heat loss during the winter, keeping the room warmer when needed.
Made to Measure
Made to measure blinds can offer protection from sunlight, glare and reflection. Similarly, made to measure black-out blinds are ideal for presentations, smart-board or projector use in the classroom to achieve a totally dark room, preventing any light penetration through the blind and allowing for clear vision on any computer-like screen.
It’s also worth considering other different types of blinds for certain subject-specific classrooms. For instance, there are blinds made from a flame retardant material ideal for kitchens and science lab classrooms where fire-related accidents could potentially occur.
The roller blind in general is an ideal blind style for a school environment. They are incredibly easy to function and can be kept clean with a simple wipe down using a damp cloth. You can also have safety devices fitted for the cords to keep the children out of danger, avoiding any unnecessary incidents occurring and keeping in line with safety standards.
Plus, they don’t have to be boring either! With child-friendly bright colours and optional patterns available, you can select a colour that you deem appropriate for a classroom, livening up the space and creating a positive, inspirational working environment for children.
