What is the best use for Panel Glide Blinds?

Panel Glide Blinds are a fantastic option for larger windows, sliding or bi-fold doors and provide a great alternative to vertical blinds.  With a maximum track size of 6200mm, Panel Glide Blinds can be custom made in Blockout, Sunscreen & Light Filtering fabrics. Smoothly operated with a wand, there are no messy cords for a refined finish.

What are the width restrictions on Panel Glide Blinds?

 Made to suit larger windows or sliding doors, the maximum width a panel glide blind can be made to is 6200 mm.  This is the maximum width of the panel glide tracks.

What sizes do the panels come in for Panel Glide blinds?

Each panel glide blind can have up to a maximum of 12 panels.  The individual panel size is determined by you.  iseekblinds recommends panel widths to be between 250mm and 1000 mm.  The size of each panel will depend on how many panels you select divided by your overall width taking the overlap into consideration.  For example, if you determine your overall track width is 3360 mm and you select 5 panels – each panel will be 672 mm wide.

How do I calculate my individual panel widths?

eg: You have measured your overall track width to be 2800 mm and are considering 4 panels

  • Deduct 1 panel from your overall quantity:
    • 4 panels minus 1 panel = 3 panels
  • Multiple this number of panels by 90 mm which is the panel overlap
    • 3 x 90 mm = 270 mm
  • Add 270mm to the original track width of 2800 mm
    • 270 mm plus 2800 mm = 3070 mm
  • Divide 3070 by the original number of panels
    • 3070 mm divided by 4 = 767.5 mm
  • 767.5 mm will be the actual width of each panel

Can I order my panel glide blind in matching fabrics to my roller blinds in the rest of the house?

Yes, you can.  Panel Glide Blinds are made from the same fabrics as our Roller Blinds and are available in 3 types - Blockout, Sunscreen & Light Filtering. Blockout blinds, otherwise referred to as blackout blinds provide 100% light block and privacy.  Perfect for room darkening, blockout blinds offer great insulation properties, particularly over a wide span of glass.   Sunscreen blinds excel in controlling the glare whilst the 10% openness of the iseekblinds fabric range means you will retain your view and daytime privacy. With 95% UV blockage sunscreen blinds will protect your furniture and flooring from sun damage. Sunscreen blinds are great for every room in the house. Light Filtering blinds gently soften and diffuse the light, offering both day and nighttime privacy.
