Rep Power: 0 Tans R Us is on a distinguished road
My high-end bed will be on display in my front tanning room and will be visible from outside when the room is not in use. I am looking for advice on what kind of blind system to use on the window that will look good and provide the client with privacy when the room is in use. I would appreciate any ideas and if you have a similiar layout, where did you get your window treatment? Thanks, Mark

I don't have anything like that but visited a salon while on vacation that did. They had some kind of blind that was powered by a switch when you closed the door...wish I could remember more about it because it was really impressive. It was like a heavy fabric accordion pleated blind. Sorry I am not more help.

Roof window companies make automated closures (electric motor with hinged arm) that are attached to the blinds that can be further automated by making on/off mechanical switch that is mounted in door frame.

I know because I have a series of roof windows in my home with automated blinds - I even have 4 of them in the kitchen set to a timer and light detector as well as override wall switch.

How about a big picture instead. Only reason I suggest this is what if not a lot of people don't use it . Just a thought>

I have a window like that. We have a roll up storm window. works great and the customers feel safe with it. very heavy duty. They are called roll-away. This is the manf. # so you can find a distributer in your area 1-800-942-3230 Good luck

Both of my Salons have beds in the front window, we have 2 Automated Black Out Shades (they are white), customers dont mind it at all as long as you show them it is a usable safe bed. I went through a local window covering company to get ours.

What size are your windows and about how much did these cost? I am looking a utilizing some space at the front of the salon to showcase a highend bed.
