Mini-blinds, Venetian blinds, Mettalic-blinds: Better!

By popular demand we introduce the "cleanest and greenest" operable blinds in the industry! Take advantage of the inherent qualities of the raw material with our time tested, unfinished, un-coated brushed aluminum 1" or 2" vanes. This addition to the Earthshade family promises great access and control with clean and stylish entry level pricing.

Modern design and traditional lines:
1" or 2" heavy duty, light-control vanes packaged in a clean integrated headrail

-"GREEN CRAFTED": 92% made in the USA including ultra recycled aluminum and minimal use of molded plastic. With 6 gauge aluminum more prevelant, our premium 8 gauge (.008") slats are spring tempered and crowned for maximum durability. Our light weight and smaller package results in a much lower footprint overall furthering your green dollars! We further reduce the footprint through decreased supply space, weight, and waste by using rolled goods (see photo below) as the thoughtful basis for our shades.

-VERSATILE CONTROL: Raise, lower, or adjust the vanes to maximize daylight, privacy, and dim light. Our routless vanes offer maximun privacy and light control providing beauty, practicality, and durability without the signature "pin-holes" of other venetian blinds.

-COLORS: SIlver or annodized silver! Just neutral enough to compliment almost any decor! Upon contacting every major raw material foundry for metallic shades in the US and Asia, we found only a small handfull remaining; ALL have moved away from the once standard powder coating touted and recommended in Green living guides to a polyester and solvent based pigment and finishing system. While we continue to build this relationship we are happy to make raw or brushed, unfinished aluminum Better-Blinds available to you today.

-Child Safety: The buzz around the industry includes "cord free" operation or lift. This feature typically removes the lift cords leaving the tilt ladders and internal lift cords providing a fasle sense of security in our minds at a premium cost. Additonally this technology uses spring tension drives that wear over time. Our shades incorporate the latest in blind safety construction providing true integrity.
