Our Vertical Blinds come with a choice of two types of headrails (white only) from the very basic Wand System to the quality conventional Cord System. We manufacture the wand system with our 3 for £99 offer only.
Every other Vertical Blind is manufactured with the quality cord system. I don’t know a single customer EVER, who has had both systems that prefers or would ever have the wand again. Everyone calls it tacky! (Not our words). However, if you are on a tight budget then this system and offer is just perfect.
Our quality Corded Headrail comes complete with a child safety device as standard and will simply last longer and function better than the Wand Headrail. Our Headrails are white, slim line and can go up to 5 metres in length.
All Corded Verticals can be centre parting or slats going to one side. There is no extra charge for this. This is Made-to-Measure. It is all included in the price we quote.
IMPORTANT – When considering Vertical Blinds, always ask about the “OVERLAP”. This is the distance between the “Trucks” which the Slats hang off. Just about everybody uses 79mm trucks. Less Fabric required, Less Overlap, more money for the Manufacturer, but at the expense of privacy. Often reported as “when I close my blinds I can still wave to people outside”, there is however, something better… HELLO BLINDS. We always use 73mm Trucks. The importance of this extra 6mm overlap is not to be sniffed at. It can be the difference between shutting the Blind and having Privacy or wasting you’re money on a lesser product often costing more money. It is the “Number One” reason we take a lot of Blinds down that are not even a year old and replace with our own. When you do ask, we find many other Blind Fitter’s either don’t know, claim they are all the same OR just tell you what you want to hear. The Larger the overlap the better the Blind. If a Vertical Blind doesn’t have a 73mm truck then it’s not a top quality Blind.
Wand System Vs Corded System
Having read what others seem to say about this we would like to put our point of view across and try to smash the myth, propaganda and lies about this product.
Before Child safety came into play in the industry, you could not give this product away (Wand System) because it was and still remains Cheap, Crude and Tacky and mainly available via the internet on low cost blinds with a picture photoshopped to look a million times better than reality. Most professional fitter’s did not even acknowledge it existed and smirked when they saw it because it is simply rubbish.
Since Child safety came into play it is now waved as the saviour of Child safety. Even though the quality cord system has a Child safety device that works even better. The “wand” system is simply cheap in cost to make and amazingly quick to manufacture. Often you can make four/five cheap wand systems in the time to make just one quality corded Headrail… Great if you’re on a budget. However, we see more and more people waving this flag and putting the WAND system on their higher quality fabrics. This is not done with Child safety in mind. It is done purely to pinch a little bit more profit from you the customer and speed up Manufacturing. It is done because it is what their supplier tells them to sell because it is all they make. The “wand” system is called many names like “super glide” or “turbo smooth glide”. It is not only laughable but words attempting to fool the gullible. Remember, in 20 years we have never met anyone that would buy it a second time. We are just saying it as it is.
When component part suppliers try to sell this system to us, they NEVER mention child safety. It is only sold to us because it is quicker and cheaper to manufacture. If “we” mention child safety features of this Blind System we get a curious look and a “what ever!” A lot of other Blind Fitter’s push this system because it is all their suppliers will sell them. So I guess they have too, just like the fact it remains sub standard.

THE AREA HELLO BLINDS COVER
We sometimes get asked to go to Alfreton, Sheffield, Worksop, South Nottingham, Portsmouth and Glasgow to name but a few. For the record, “we do not cover Alfreton or Sheffield“, ever. It is simply too far away and takes up a minimum of two appointment slots, normally three. These are the two most asked places.
THIS IS HOW HELLO BLINDS WORKS:
- Contact us. Tell us you’re Name, Address including Postcode and provide us with a contact number.
- Tell us what type of Blinds you are interested in?
- We will call you to make an appointment.
- We will make an appointment that’s convenient for you. For a Free No Obligation Quote. If you miss the appointment for whatever reason, we will wait around 10 minutes before leaving a card to say we have called. We will NOT phone or hassle, but leave it up to you to contact us if you would still like an appointment. Luckily this does not happen very often. However this is our procedure when it does.
- We will call round with Prices and Samples. Our sample collection is vast. There is no rush. No pressure. Quotes are Free!
- We will measure each window, down to the last millimetre.
- If you want to order, we take a 50% deposit, Cash or Debit Card. Or we leave a quote.
- We will give you a receipt, with all the transaction details, our contact numbers and address should you need us. We give you a fitting date within three weeks on receipt of your deposit.
- It is not a problem if you need to rearrange the fitting date. However it can take up to 2-3 weeks to rebook.
- Once fitted and the balance is paid you get a receipt complete with a 12 Month Manufacturer’s and Fitting Warranty in writing.
- You will then have the very best quality Blinds money can buy.
ALL WE ASK IS:
- Our appointment is FREE. However this is for “ONE” visit. We get people asking us to quote for windows where there is just a wall or when new windows and plaster is yet to be done. We then have to come back a second time. We even get calls to just look at the samples because, “we might have blinds at our next property“. Simply put this just wastes our appointment slots. Please note, the second visit is not free. Over 99% of our enquiries are done with just one single appointment. Thank you for understanding.
- We ask that each window required to be measured has access to it so we can measure properly. We measure to an extremely high standard so you get the Best Blinds and the Best Installation.
- ALL windows are complete. i.e. Tiles, Sills, Dado and Plastering/Skimming etc is finished.
- The person(s) responsible for colour/sample choice are there for the appointment. This year we have had several men when asked about colour choice ect… giving us the standard “I don’t know?” or “Cream. Any Cream. I think!” this then means the above point 1 kicks in.
We take our shoes off at house entry and measure while you view our massive collection of samples. There is no sales pressure what so ever. We also bring out working Blinds and explain every detail. We manufacture between 100-200 blinds every week. We have done since early 2015. We don’t pressure anybody. The experience for you is informative and enjoyable. Thank you for reading.
