Tri-Shade Blinds are often also referred to as silhouette blinds or visage blinds. The ingenious design of these blinds incorporates all the best elements of a roller, venetian and a sheer net. If you are looking for the functionality of a venetian, but would like something that sits a little softer in the window this is the blind for you.
The Tri-Shade blind is made up of two layers of a lightweight, sheer fabric and this fabric is inter-layered with a fabric vane which is suspended between the two layers. The vanes come in a number of different colours and transparencies. In the closed position these inter-layered slats work just like a venetian creating a solid block but in the open position the vanes create a much lighter feel than a venetian slat and you are able to adjust the vane to temper light and control privacy. Because the tri-shade blind is fixed onto a roller you can also move the blind up and down your window recess.
Compared to normal venetian blinds a width of 2.7m is possible and the fact that this is a cloth blind means the weight is much lower and therefore an easier blind to lift in the case of wide spans. In addition if you have a long drop on the blind, unlike a wood/aluminium venetian you do not have a large stack height when the blinds are in an open position.
