Blinds Between The Glass Options

Blinds Between The Glass

Many SunClad Casements, Fixed Lites and Doors are available with Blinds between the glass. Sun offers three different blind systems, each with it own benefits and limitations. In general, blinds between the glass offer the privacy and adjustable daylight control that typical add-on blinds provide with additional benefit of minimal exposure of the blinds to the indoor environment. This can help protect your blinds from dust and handling damage. However, when blinds are placed between the glass, you loose the ability to have a grille system and interior screens (on casement windows) must be removed to operate the blinds.

A) Raise & Lower Sealed IG Blinds
A Blind system that is sealed within the insulated glass unit. This is a raise and lower blind that is opened (tilt the blind slats) by a magnetic operator located at the top of the glass. A side mounted operator raises and lowers the blind. Available on SunClad™ Casement and Fixed Lite windows and on SunClad™ Doors.

Slat Color = White
Tilt Operator Color = White

B) Tilt Only Sealed IG Blinds
Also available is a variation of our sealed IG Blind system that tilts only. A magnetic operator located at the top of the glass opens (tilts) the blind slats. Available on SunClad™ Casement and Fixed Lite windows and on SunClad™ Doors.

C) Tilt Blinds with Removable Glass Panel
SunClad™ Casements and Fixed Lites offer the option of an aluminum blind system that is housed between the insulated glass unit and a removable interior glass panel. This protects the blinds from dust and damage from being handled. A magnetic operator, located on the removable glass panel, activates the blinds. Screens may be used with the blind system. Simply remove the screens to adjust the blinds Blind colors are white, alabaster, and sand. Glass panel frame colors are white or sand. Blind operator color is white.
