Chose your Vertical blinds system:
Wertikale - characteristics
Wertikal (vertical) is a vertical blind, installed inside the room. It stands out from other internal covers by the way of assembly as well as the arrangement and texture of the lamellas.
Internal verticals are mounted on a special rail equipped with a steering mechanism. The shutter itself consists of strips of material arranged vertically. The belts are not stiff, and by controlling the mechanism, they are set in any inclination angle, so that the appropriate (desired) amount of light falls into the rooms.
Verticals, like other types of covers, are primarily used to shield the interior from excessive sunlight, and thus to maintain an appropriate (comfortable) temperature reigns indoors during hot weather. They also provide protection from outside gaze. They are mainly associated with offices, conference rooms, lecture halls and public utility buildings such as schools, universities, libraries, offices and hospitals. However, the high quality of both the fittings and materials as well as the wide range of colors of vertical blinds make them more and more often used in private homes.
The unusual design of verticals makes them blend in very well with the interior design. They do not take up space around windows and can also obscure large window surfaces or glass walls. Vertical stripes of louvres (slats) can visually raise a low ceiling, making the room appear visually more spacious. Verticals are used especially in buildings with modernist architecture; with characteristic geometric shapes, large windows and many glazed spaces. With many glazing, it is very important to provide adequate protection of rooms against the sun and intimacy of people inside. Vertical blinds work very well in large houses/buildings with an extensive interior layout.
Features of verticals
Thanks to their advantages, verticals effectively shield the rooms from the sun and positively affect their aesthetics.
The louver rail is mounted to a wall or ceiling, and vertical fabric strips are attached to it. The width of the belts is 89 mm or 127 mm. The choice depends primarily on the size of the room; in the more spacious ones, wider lamellas are better, and in the smaller ones, the narrower ones. By regulating the position of the belts, we also regulate the light flow. By repealing them, we increase the amount of light, depending on the time of day and the intensity of the sun. The windows can also be fully exposed by moving the lamellas to one side of the window. Due to the extensive color palette, you can choose light colors of materials for offices, which will make it possible to use Daylight. It will be muffled, but you can still work comfortably indoors; all the more taking into account the pleasant temperature obtained thanks to the shielded panes. A bead mechanism is used to control vertical, it is also possible to use electric control.
The material of the lamellas is soft, but that does not mean that it is not aesthetically pleasing. The whole system is designed so that the lamellas fit perfectly together and fit together aesthetically. The straps at the bottom are equipped with special weights, they also have a chain connection. Thanks to this, they do not protrude from the window surface and they arrange themselves flush with it. As the material is soft, it allows air to circulate even when covered. When tilted, when the belts are at right angles to the glass, they also fit neatly and evenly. Even when the windows are slightly open and the gusts of wind move the material, due to the fact that at the bottom it is connected by a chain and it is tightened, it stays in its place. By people staying in the room (broken belts).
The biggest advantage of verticals is that they are used not only to cover windows, but also to create partition walls or play the role of light and symbolic doors. The rail can be mounted anywhere on the ceiling and thus create a sheltered place in the room - this option is ideal for cosmetic, medical or aesthetic medicine offices and generally wherever there is a need for separation a separate part without the need to build additional walls made of, for example, kartongypsum.
Producers of warticals take care of the high quality of the materials from which they are produced and the expansion of the color palette, also with the option of texturing. Thanks to this, the blinds can be easily matched to the decor and a material with varying degrees of light/shade transmittance can be used, appropriate to the function of the room. The lamellas are easy to maintain, in order to keep their aesthetics, it is enough to regularly remove dust from them. In addition, you can choose a shutter, the material of which is equipped with a hygiene certificate (PZH) and a non-flammability certificate (ITB).
The aesthetics and functionality of verticals make them very universal when it comes to adjusting them to the appearance of rooms.

How to choose a color
The color of the covers is always selected to the style of the interior and the effect we want to achieve.
