The Best Commercial Blinds That Schools Actually Need


Blinds are a must-have in any school. They help create a private, focused, and safe environment in which students can learn, create and explore. There are many factors to consider when it comes to installing blinds in schools. Academe-significant features include light control, fire retardant material, ease of use, and durability, style, child-safety features, to mention a few. Flame retardant curtains for schools are an exceptional feature that helps add a layer of protection for the class, especially when the occasional accidents arise.

Here at direct Fabric, we analyze market demands comprehensively to provide the most up-to-date commercial blinds solutions for our customers. Below is a curated list of well-suited blinds for schools:


Vertical Louvre Blinds


Vertical louvre blinds are functional, durable, and easy to operate. Offering a traditional and professional look, vertical blinds come in a wide variety of colors. In addition, vertical blind slats offer excellent light and privacy control. The shape of the blinds also helps keep the room at a cool temperature, a handy feature to have during warmer summer months. They’re also child-friendly, with a wand mechanism that’s easy for children to adjust. Lastly, these blinds don’t take much to install, making them an excellent choice for large schools.


Venetian Blinds


Venetian blinds are another great option for schools, offering the same optimal privacy and light control as louvre blinds. Two popular materials are Metal and faux wood. In addition, Venetian blinds offer a relatively more modern or contemporary look than their vertical siblings, adding an instant charm and style to any classroom. Venetians blinds are easy to clean, install, and are perfectly safe for children. Their incredible durability and versatility for any setting make them a go-to for classroom settings, where they’re expected to function all day long.













Roller Blinds


Roller blinds come with a unique mechanism that utilizes the least moving parts, making them less susceptible to damage, a great feature to have in the hands of an excitable child. They require minimal maintenance and are one of the most durable on this list, plus they’re also wholly child safe. The light control and privacy are extensive, screening out most of the sunlight and allowing students the environment they need to focus on and concentrate on classes.




Blackout Blinds


Blackout blinds give schools the option to entirely block out any sun glare from their classrooms, ensuring that only the room’s artificial lighting is available to the students. This functional and durable blind, like the rest on this list, is entirely child-safe while adding a touch of class and glamour to the class. Since they won’t be getting any pesky sun glare inside the room, schools can use the wide range of available colors to inject some personality into their space. These blind types are perfect for class theatres, ensuring that the stage lights have the maximum effect and the school can have a fantastic program when the school stage curtains are drawn apart.

Blackout blinds also vary in style, including vertical and roller blinds. However, they’re usually relatively straightforward to use, install, and maintain, making them an effortless blind to have around.
