In architectural design, ventilation and lights are values considered of utmost importance and therefore, it is essential to complement them with accessories that reinforce these services. A blind is a mechanism that is placed inside a window to control the passage of luminosity in the room and home intimacy. These can be made in different materials although PVC plastic, aluminum, wood, and anti-water polyester are the most popular materials due to their freshness and resistance to deterioration.
Blinds show a double tendency of opening and closing that is usually displayed in raising and lowering operation. In the market, there are many types of sunscreens to use on windows, fabric curtains, awnings, blinds, among others.
As a curious fact, this type of mechanisms has its origin in the 18th century in Persia, where a piece of fabric was used to wrap doors and windows to block the entry of light and dust. Its name comes from the French word persienne, which means from Persia.
They arrived over time to replace the traditional fabric curtains, giving a touch of modernization to the treatment of windows and balconies. They play the same role, to the naked eye; but specialized companies, qualify the system as “an innovative mechanism that provides elegance and space decoration, offering other capabilities that traditional curtains do not have, they help to improve our comfort at home, offices or businesses and, without a doubt, we cannot leave out its versatility of use”.
