Highlights of Customiser 1" Mini Blinds

What makes the Customiser 1" mini blinds ideal commercial window coverings for offices? They’re designed to work, every time. They’re engineered for success. Highlights include:

  • 1" x 1" slim profile steel headrail 
  • Disengaging clutch and crash-proof cord lock 
  • 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

Features & Components

  • Headrail is 1" high x 1" 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 is a 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.
  • 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.
