The Longest Blind
Long Custom Blind


The challenge was to design and install an electric roof light screen shading system for a new NHS surgery in Edmonton.

The unique architectural design of the surgery featured a suspended ceiling leading to the opening at an angle of 6.4 degrees. This meant that when the cloth of the blind was extended across the opening, the ceiling and the cloth had to form one continuous line.

Adding to the complexity, the total length of the blind was over 16 meters, making it the longest electric blind ever to be manufactured.


To address the unique requirements of the project, a specialised electric blind was designed with a tilted headbox to ensure seamless integration with the angled ceiling.

Despite its unprecedented length, the blind performed flawlessly, providing the desired shading for the surgery’s expansive window area.

The solution not only met the functional requirements but also added aesthetic value to the space.

In addition to the skylight blind, a range of other products were installed to offer the contractor a comprehensive package, ensuring that the surgery had a complete solution tailored to its needs.
