Window fashion is not just something homeowners think about, contractors and builders also want to install window coverings that attract and please clients. In order to make fashion savvy consumers happy, the commercial industry has had to step up and make certain the quality and appeal of window coverings they install is top notch. The commercial blinds industry has answered to this need by providing products that are both affordable and beautiful.
With increased economic growth, competition for customers has become fiercer than ever and to compete well in this newly rebounding marketplace, a business needs to keep to a reasonable budget. To do this they must make sure to shop for the best price on commercial blinds, shades and other window covering needs. It is not at all uncommon for a company to stick with a certain vendor with the false belief that they are all pretty much the same. This sort of mentality can cost a company thousands of dollars so it pays to compare.
Our suggestion is to look for a commercial shades and blinds vendor who understands and can help you fully meet the required safety codes and certifications. Requirements such as the NFPA 701 fire retardant code and the ANSI or LEED standard codes are vital, and uninformed customer service representatives could put your company at a greater risk for receiving incorrect blinds or shades. When choosing a vendor, make sure they are able to back up their products with no less than a lifetime guarantee.
Your vendor of choice should also be able to give you the guaranteed lowest price for the style of commercial blinds or shades that you need. Your vendor should be able to offer you the quality of the most respected brands in the industry, these include Graber window fashions, a well-recognized brand owned by Springs Window Fashions, a well-known window covering manufacturer offering superior quality products made by American workers and Levolor, a preferred provider of window treatment options. Levolor products are made by Newell Rubbermaid which has its headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
Options are also important to consumers, and the right vendor will be able to provide your company with all the most popular options. Motorization, cordless, and easy-lift options can easily be added to nearly any blind or shade product. Solar shades and roller shades are easily the most popular option in commercial applications. This is because solar shades are perfect for blocking glare while still allowing lots of natural light into a building.
Cellular shades or aluminum mini blinds are also very popular options since they are both energy efficient and easy to clean. With multiple size and color options available, there are blinds and window shades suitable for any purpose imaginable. No matter what your goal may be, there are plenty of cost-effective options available.
Make sure you actually call the companies you consider working with directly for acurate commercial pricing. The prices that are listed as retail on e-commerce sites are typically not going to be the price you would be quoted for large commercial orders. You will also want to know for certain if the company is professional enough to be available to you if you should ever have any questions.
