Faux wood blinds have the classy and upscale appearance of a hard wood blind, but they are made to hold up better in sunny windows and humid areas. Faux wood blinds are made of different materials such as vinyl or a combination of vinyl and wood. They appear just as a hard wood blind does with beautiful wood grain but they are at a lower price point. In addition, the lower price point comes with some fantastic qualities because they don’t age as hard wood blinds do. They are much lighter in weight so they are durable to be lifted and lowered over and over again without harm to the lifting mechanism. Faux wood doesn’t yellow with age from bright sunny windows and they resist fading, warping, bending or breaking because of their unique fabrication process.
Colors, Colors and More Colors
Faux wood blinds can be stained or painted in any color you can imagine. You can have them stained to match your trim work in a commercial space or a contrasting stain color to add a bit of color to a neutral palate. You can also have them painted in any color you desire. The great thing is that the paint or stain will bring out the beautiful wood grain and accent the whorls and designs of the intricate wood patterns.
Energy Efficiency and Light Control
Faux wood blinds are considered a great insulating factor on your windows when they are closed. They trap the hot summer air next to the window and don’t allow it to enter your space. This allows you to use much less energy to cool your area in the summer and heat it in the winter.
You can also reap the benefits of great light control with faux wood blinds. You can tilt the vanes to add some light to your space or open them fully or partially to add precise lighting. Commercial faux wood window coverings help you to control not only light, but also heat and cold gain and they give you a superior level of privacy when they are closed. Faux wood blinds are also great for dampening outdoor noises from landscaping equipment so it doesn’t affect the quality of sound inside for employees or clients.
Automation at Its Best
Your faux wood blinds can be motorized so that you can program into an app what times you want to open and close them. This can be a fantastic feature if you have several blinds in a building. It saves all the time of walking from window to window to open or close the blinds. You can over ride your program with the touch of a button and blinds can work individually or in banks. We can add this feature to your smart business or commercial space and they operate very quietly. Automation is a sought after item in the window treatments realm and its very popular all over the United States and especially in commercial buildings in the Denver area.
