Can blinds be fitted to uPVC Windows

Can blinds be fitted to uPVC Windows

When fitting blinds to windows or doors, not everyone fits their blind straight onto a wall or ceiling. This is because in some instances, such as in conservatories and in modern builds, uPVC windows and doors are installed, preventing blinds from being attached directly to the window or door frame.

Nearly all uPVC windows and doors will feature a manufacturer’s warranty that safeguards the customer against future problems. However, this also means that drilling into the uPVC will void the warranty and can cause damage to the structure of the window or door.

Here at Swift, we have a range of high-quality, well-designed uPVC blinds that are cost-effective, energy-efficient long-term, and can be fitted without any need for drilling or screws. Read on to find out what options are available for your uPVC windows.
