Why choose Westgate’s window blinds within the education sector?

It may seem like a small detail, but the blinds you choose for your premises can have a real impact. The education sector in particular can benefit greatly from a good choice of blind and similarly, can suffer for choosing poorly.
With the education sector working to strict budgets, it can be tempting to opt for the cheapest blind option to save on upfront costs and keep within these budgets. However, this move to cut costs in the short-term can mean that long-term, more money ends up being spent to replace or repair the inferior blinds.
Westgate Solar Control’s Lifetime Blind range is the perfect investment for the education sector and are the best long-term solution. Here’s why.

Rugged and durable

Westgate’s blinds are designed to last which makes them the perfect choice within schools or universities. Sometimes deliberate damage is done to classroom accessories like desks, chairs and blinds, but due to there hardwearing nature, Westgate’s College Lifetime Blinds will withstand much more willful damage than a standard and cheaper blind option.  We guarantee either a one, two, three or five-year warranty depending on which blind you opt for from our range. Even better – when we install your new blinds ourselves, we bump that up to a 10-year guarantee. This means Westgate’s commercial blinds are an extremely economical choice as they won’t need replacing regularly. The overall value and longevity that comes with these blinds is second to none which is why they are the ideal fit for the education sector.

A significant reduction in glare

Additionally, glare is often a problem for schools and universities, especially now we’ve replaced textbooks and pens with computers and keyboards. By installing Westgate’s blinds, you can remove the issues of glare and allow screens to be seen clearly. This is another way to boost learning, reduce eye strain for both teachers and students within the classroom, and ensure relevant health and safety regulations are being adhered to.

Works to keep classrooms cool

Keeping the attention of pupils is paramount and this can indeed be tough for teachers at times. Summer is the worse culprit for wandering attention spans as the increase in temperature makes it difficult to focus. Hot weather saps energy and decreases concentration levels in teachers and students alike. Westgate’s College Lifetime Blinds can protect classrooms from the heat of the sun, allowing the inside of the building to stay in the shade, remain cool and boosting productivity and learning within the class.
