Channel-It & Channel-X: Side Channel Outdoor Blinds

Side Channel Outdoor Blinds: Protection, Privacy and Complete Comfort

Side-channel blinds fix one of the most glaring issues with most commercial blinds in the market — the gap. Traditional blinds don't fully cover your window, leaving a gap on each side through which light can pass through, possibly ruining your sleep when the sun rises. 

As annoying as being woken up is, that's not the most pressing issue with traditional blinds. If you rely on blinds to obscure the inside of your home, a gap raises privacy and security concerns — as anyone can look around the blinds and into your home. 

Our side-channel outdoor blinds systems resolve these issues, and do so much more.

Going beyond privacy and security, Channel-It and Channel-X also allow you to extend your living spaces further. Bringing the outdoors in, they can be installed on your patios and pergolas to create outside rooms with the option to be completely enclosed. Simply slide down your blinds to keep away the bugs, protect you from the weather, or create a more intimate outdoor space.

Channel-It Blinds

Our Channel-It side-channel outdoor blinds are the perfect solution for those who want complete privacy, without sacrificing style. Compatible with a multitude of fabrics, Channel-It blinds can act as a complete blackout solution, as a windbreak that lets the sun in, or even as diffuse sunlight so that only softer light passes through.

Able to withstand all weather, our system will help in insulating your home from weather extremes, by keeping out the rain, keeping the wind away and reducing the glare of a hot day. You can enclose a patio or pergola and keep the weather out, but still have the flexibility to open it up as required.

Of course, thanks to its no-gap system, Channel-It outdoor blinds provide a complete visual seal. No one can sneak a peek around the side of the blind like traditional blinds.

Channel-X Blinds

After repeated client requests, ICL developed the Channel-X blind system, which can be securely locked at the bottom, acting as a wall to enclose outdoor areas that can be easily removed when needed.

Designed with indented flutes for extra strength, this side-channel outdoor blind system is often used to "create another room" from patios or verandas, with the flexibility of opening that room into a greater outdoor area when needed. You can expect savings on air conditioning and heating costs, and being able to spend time outdoors at night time with lights on without being flocked by insects.

Of course, Channel-X blinds leave no gaps for peeping toms, and with the Channel-X gear box system, lockable bar and removable handle, you can safely leave animals, kids and valuables inside.

If you want your side-channel blinds to completely block out the light, then we suggest using tinted PVC or shade cloth material.
