If you love the look and utility of Venetian blinds but can’t stand cleaning them or dealing with damaged slats, check out Unicel Architectural’s ViuLite® integrated blinds.

ViuLite® is a system of ScreenLine® integrated blinds permanently and hermetically sealed within a double- or triple-glazed insulating glass unit. ViuLite® ensures protection against dirt, germs, weather conditions, and damage, while offering an aesthetically pleasing design element that provides enhanced solar shading and variable vision control.

That means perfectly aligned, dust-free blinds easily controlled through any number of operators, from ligature-resistant knobs, to sliders, to external or internal motorized systems. ViuLite® units can include tempered, Low-E (low emissivity), fire-rated, security, mirror/tint, glass-clad polycarbonate, standard polycarbonate, and other glass types.

All surfaces and operators on ViuLite® blinds are protected with Sanitized® patented antibacterial treatment, which uses silver ions as an active biocidal substance and protects against bacteria and odor.

ViuLite® is a past winner of Architectural Record’s Product of the Year Award. Its various aluminum framing systems, glass stops, and door trim kit options make ViuLite® perfect for interior or exterior partitions, sidelights, doors, transoms, windows and curtain walls.
