When you are purchasing and installing blinds in a commercial context (such as for a real estate rental, a business space, retail stores or a public/government area), there is a lot that needs to be considered particularly with regards to pre-specified requirements. These can include blue scale fading, fire retardant rating, mould and mildew resistance, security ratings, etc, etc. Here at Burns for Blinds we have products that suit any requirements that may need to be met.

With a private home installation, you may have some more freedom with how you implement your blinds. However, blinds used in commercial context need to be safe and functional for as many different types of people as possible.

Regulatory standards are not the only consideration – the style and function are essential as well. This is especially true for commercial spaces that customers will occupy, as you want to choose blinds that fit the store’s aesthetic and that also provide comfort for both customers and employees.

Similarly, blinds in an office space should be chosen in such a way that they can easily eliminate glare on computer screens used during work. It’s also essential to ensure that employees at their desks are given adequate privacy, as well as protection from sunlight during the workday.

We also have the ability to colour print anything on our indoor and outdoor blinds to help promote your business. This may include logos, pictures and slogans to assist in the standing out from the crowd and ensure your business is seen.

Your choice of commercial blinds installation can also play a role in the creation of a distinct corporate culture. For example, motorised roller blinds can create an energetic, almost futuristic atmosphere that can impress clients/customers with their ease of function.

Of course, price is also an important factor that needs to be considered when it comes to commercial blinds. You may have demands of you to find the most cost-effective option that meets required standards, and that will provide the greatest longevity.

You also might have pressure to meet certain aesthetic needs, such as matching the blinds with the interior aesthetic that is already present throughout other parts of the project. This is especially true for when an entirely new space is added to an existing structure.

Therefore, you must connect with a commercial blinds supplier that has a wide range of quality products, as well as the know-how to ensure they are right for the role you require them for. This is why it’s beneficial to engage an experienced supplier like Burns for Blinds that has over half a century of experience in this area.

At Burns for Blinds, we have supplied South Australia’s homes and businesses with compliant and cost-effective window furnishings since 1953. Of course, rules and regulations around the use of blinds in commercial spaces have changed over the decades, and we have stayed up to date with all of them.
