Timber Venetian Blinds
Cedar is a 100% natural timber blind system, designed to appeal to customers who are seeking a natural looking Timber blind. Lacquered Cedar is almost maintenance free as you don’t need to apply any oils to the blinds, cleaning the blinds is the only maintenance. There are different qualities of Cedar blinds available in Perth, We choose to sell the best available to our customers at our everyday low prices.
We only use the best quality Cedar Timber, made from plantation timber. Cedar is much lighter than the “Timber Look” Venetians, so you can have blinds made up to 3m wide.
Cedar is coloured blades are available in natural Light-Medium tones or Medium- Dark tones. There is the option for a 90mm blade in white.
Features a stylish and functional trapezoidal shaped bottom rail. This shape provides better closure and allows the bottom rail to sit lower to the windowsill, therefore reducing light gaps.
Cedar venetians are lacquered with a UV-stabilized lacquer to reduce fading. The UV Stabiliser will slow down the fading of Cedar blinds but not stop the fading from the Suns UV completely. Cedar will bleach over time, but this happens gradually, depending on the level of exposure to the sun.
Cedar is a natural product therefore there will be some variation in the colour of the blades from piece to piece.
The lacquer finish used on these is designed for interior use only, they are not recommended for wet areas like bathrooms or laundry’s.
Cedar is used in blinds because it is a very stable timber. Warping or twisting rarely is classes as a soft timber so if you hit the blind with force the timber will dent. Blades can be replaced if damaged but at a cost.
These blinds are manufactured to meet Australian Safety Standards and have Child safe cords. The Timber is a non-toxic product and can be cleaned using a duster or vacuum when necessary.
The Cedar used for our blinds is grown primarily in plantations in Canada and North America. It is relatively slow growing, but readily available. The plantation forests are managed for sustainability, ensuring an environmentally friendly and ongoing supply.
Local (Perth) manufacturing means fast delivery and supports Australian jobs.
