ODL, Inc., a leader in the building products industry with an emphasis in fenestration, expands its Blink® Blinds + Glass line with a new, 7/8-inch version of its popular blinds-between-glass. Featuring durable blinds sandwiched between two panes of glass, Blink 7/8 Custom provides a slim option for light and privacy control to patio doors up to 18 square feet and windows up to 12 square feet with a 7/8-inch IG pocket.
The industry-first design eliminates light gaps, shadows, and sunlight glare with the unique benefits of minimal maintenance and enhanced safety for children and pets, as the enclosed blinds lack dangling cords, never need to be dusted and will not bend or tangle like exposed blinds.
The new Blink 7/8 Custom blinds are now available for dual-operator applications greater than 48-inches tall, including patio doors. Blinds in 7/8-widths for single-operator applications less than 48-inches tall, including windows, will be available starting October 1. These innovative blinds can be purchased at nationwide home centers, and local window and door specialty dealers across the United States and Canada.
Key features include:
- Matching components in six colors
- Tempered or annealed glass
- Clear glass, 8 Low-E or 4 NEAT options
- Custom sizes of 8"–48" wide x 18"–80" tall in 1/16" increments
- EasyGlide Operator raises, lowers, and tilts blinds with just slight movement
“The new configuration will open up new opportunities for designers and builders to spec and install Blink blinds for both residential and commercial applications,” said Townes Parsley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ODL, Inc. “We expect a growing number of homeowners and a variety of small businesses to opt for the superior functionality and outstanding look of Blink 7/8 Custom.”
