BetweenGlassBlinds provided integral blind sets in a classroom environment for the Steward Academy project.  BGB was able to meet the specific requirements including fully encapsulated, dual operated integral blinds that can be adjusted to provide greater visibility or privacy at a touch. Only BGB units offer the exclusive dual-control functionality, allowing operation from either side of the glass. The units also contain a unique tracking system for the magnet, meaning that the magnet cannot get lost or be removed from the rails. As requested by the client, BGB panels were manufactured with laminate safety glass , offering FD30 fire protection, as well as great acoustic properties.

Both stylish and contemporary in appearance, they are easy to maintain, as the blinds contained within the sealed unit are safe from dust and dirt.
