Supplier of ‘added value building products for the home’, ODL Europe, will be exhibiting at this year’s inaugural Build Show, running from 6-8 October, at Birmingham’s NEC as part of UK Construction Week.
Visitors to stand B4/317 will have the chance to see for themselves the newly launched Built in Blind – a UK manufactured, cordless, integral blind system, which can be custom sized for conservatories, French doors, bi-fold doors and sliding patio doors, and fitted at point of fabrication or installation – which will be shown for the first time at the show.
Managing director at ODL Europe, Mark Towers, explained: “We are looking forward to bringing the Built in Blind to the Build Show and are confident that fabricator and installer visitors will be genuinely impressed with the fantastic benefits it has to offer.”
Such benefits are said to include UK manufacture by a company with ‘a 10+ year heritage in innovation, quality and added value – the same company which pioneered the popular TriSys glazing cassette for composite doors’.
According to ODL, all glass units containing the blind are produced to meet the EN 1279 standards and are available gas filled and with low ‘E’ glass to improve ‘U’ values, but the biggest benefit to the trade comes from the ability to custom size, so the same blind can feature in the conservatory as the bi-fold, French and sliding patio doors.
But it’s not just the trade to whom the Built in Blind will appeal according to Mark, who concluded: “We can also generate retail awareness amongst homeowner visitors via the more consumer focused elements of UK Construction Week – such as Grand Designs Live – so they can see how our blind differs from anything else on the market, and of course, these homeowner benefits provide a valuable tool to help fabricators and installers add value and ultimately, sell.
“Unlike external blinds, the Built in Blind is protected internally from any potential damage, has fingertip control, UV-stable slats, and requires no cleaning or dusting. Importantly, the blinds are also completely cord free by design, as recommended by the child safety requirements of EN13120:2009+A1:2014.
“Point of sale material and training can be provided to anyone who requires it, and we would be delighted to speak with anybody who wishes to come and see us on stand B4/317 to find out more.”
Come and see the Built in Blind by ODL Europe on stand B4/317 at the Build Show.
