The Island of Hydra – Electrically Operated Pull Up Roller Blinds Installation

Client: Private
Product: Electrically Operated Pull Up Roller Blinds

Electrically Operated Pull Up Roller blinds are ideal if you require total coverage or only selective coverage, but without excluding natural light, for example, a residential home or restaurant which is on a busy pavement or public area, overlooked by another area. The blind is installed at the base of the window and is pulled upwards rather than by a downwards motion normally associated with roller blinds. This allows privacy or security to be given at the height required, therefore allowing natural light to enter the room from the top of the window. The blinds allow you to receive the maximum natural light into your room, with the maximum privacy that you require. The blinds can be adjusted to any height, ideal for any use or application.

The Island of Hydra is one of the Saronic islands of Greece located in the Aegean Sea with an area of only 28 square miles. When our fitters left England to travel to Hydra, the journey took them to Athens and then they had to travel by ferry boat for 3 hours across to the island.

No cars are allowed on Hydra so the only mode of transport is by Donkey, bicycle or foot, so when our blinds arrived at the port they had the get the local donkey to carry the tools and blinds up to the residence!

We were asked to supply electrically operated pull up roller blinds and fly screens to an exclusive residence on the island. The vast windows which we covered with our Scottish Holland fabric were around a huge 4.5 metres high. At the time of installation the weather hit a scorching 40 degrees C – proving a unique challenge for our fitters! We were overjoyed with the results, as were our client.
