Overview


Highlights of Classics 1" Mini Blinds

Why do end-users love our Classics mini blinds? For the same reason that contractors do. They work perfectly, they look beautiful, and they’re designed to last. Highlights include:

  • 1" x 1-1/2" rectangular steel headrail
  • Disengaging clutch and crash-proof cord lock
  • Slat thickness and ladder spacing options
  • Optional top-lock cord locks enhance the exterior appearance of a building; blinds will be uniformly down when in use, but can be raised to the top-locking position for window cleaning
  • Optional tilt limiters control the amount of slat closure—admitting daylight, allowing air to circulate, and preventing heat build-up

Engineered for contractors. Designed for customers. There is a reason these mini blinds are called classic. Let’s talk about how these mini blinds will perfect your project.

Features & Components


Headrail
  • Headrail is 1" high x 1-1/2" wide x .025" thick steel.
  • The steel finishing process includes phosphate treatment for corrosion resistance, a chrome-free sealer, a low hazardous air pollutants (HAP) urethane primer, and a topcoat of low HAP polyester-baked enamel.
Bottomrail
  • Bottomrail is a completely enclosed tubular shape made of phosphate-treated steel for corrosion resistance and finished with a chrome-free sealer, low HAP urethane primer, and a topcoat of low HAP polyester-baked enamel.
  • Bottomrail measures .025" thick.
Controls
  • Heavy-duty wand tilt and cord lift are standard.
  • Tilter is made of injection-molded thermoplastics for smooth, low-friction operation and incorporates a disengaging clutch mechanism to prevent damage due to over-tilting.
  • Tilt rod is electro-zinc coated solid steel measuring 1/4" square.
  • Tilt wand is clear polycarbonate with a hexagonal cross section measuring approximately 1/4" diameter, and is attached to the tilter shaft with a spring clip for easy removal.
  • Cordlock is a snap-in design made of durable, high-impact nylon with a stainless steel wear guard incorporating a floating, shaft-type locking pin.
  • The cordlock design provides a crash-proof safety feature that locks the blinds automatically upon release of the lift cord.
  • Drum and cradles are made of low-friction thermoplastic and are provided for each ladder.
Slats
  • Slats are 5000 Series cold-rolled aluminum containing the maximum allowable recycled content to produce a high-strength and corrosion-resistant, flexible product.
  • Slats are nominally 1" wide x .006" thick and processed to provide a smooth, hard, less porous surface, which includes being treated with a topcoat of polyester-baked enamel.
  • Antistatic performance repels dust.
  • Low HAP, low VOC paint process reduces emissions.
  • Slats meet NFPA 701.
  • Braided ladder is made of 100% polyester yarn, incorporating two extra-strength rungs per ladder for slat support. Standard ladder spacing is 21.5mm.
