Things consider when selecting blinds for a school


Any window fabric used in schools or similar facilities must be fire retardant. All of our window blinds and curtains fabrics are fire retardant in accordance with BS5867 and you can be confident in the knowledge that our products are installed to child safety standard BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014. We also provide automated systems without any cords or chain for added peace of mind.

Internal Environment

When choosing the right window blind and fabric for a classroom environment, it is important to consider what the room is used for. For instance, if the room is used for IT lessons, choosing a roller blind with a screen fabric will reduce the amount of glare on the screens, while still allowing natural light to enter the room. No matter what the shading requirements are, you can be confident that Capricorn will guide you through the most suitable options so together we can provide you with the ideal solution that will help contribute towards a stimulating learning environment for both teachers and students.
