Window treatments for hospitals, hotels, schools, universities and other public-use settings have to meet stringent requirements, in function, construction and design. New York City Blinds will work with you to fulfill your exact specifications for any institutional project. Window treatments are much more than décor; the right window treatments will contribute to the overall energy efficiency, customer comfort and efficient use of any building.
Institutional spaces need to meet health and safety codes as well as contribute to an overall look and feel.
School and university projects, for example may need shades or blinds that are durable and easy to clean. Classrooms should have glare control, such as translucent shades that also allow some connection to the outside. Public and private spaces will require fire-retardant materials.
Hotels and any other hospitality spaces usually need a variety of window coverings, depending on the room’s use: common areas, guest rooms, dining rooms and meeting rooms or ballrooms. For large areas with window walls, for example, a motorized shade or curtain is an efficient option. Bring us your specs and we’ll help you select the right treatment for each space. New York City Blinds also measures and installs on projects large and small.
Hospitals and medical buildings have strict health and safety requirements, including window treatments that are child-safe, anti-microbial and fire-retardant. We can meet those standards as well as providing room darkening shades, solar screen shades and privacy screens. We also carry gliding panels that can be used as room dividers.
Almost any window treatment you select for any setting can be motorized for automatic control. Control can even be integrated with your computer system, a tablet or phone. Control light, increase energy efficiency and present a coherent design in one room, multiple spaces or throughout an entire building.
We’ll work with you to meet the functional requirements design concepts for your institutional project, from first specification through the last installation.
