The blinds are a good accessory for windows when you want privacy, or want to adjust the amount of light coming into the room. It is recommeded to decide on the blinds when purchasing the windows. We install the blinds at the factory, making the installation easy and tidy. The standard colour for the blinds is white, but there are numerous other options, as well.
Modern integrated blinds
Integrated blinds can be installed to an openable window. Control of the blinds is done with a knob on the interior surface of the inner sash, which is on the other side of the window as the hinges. The integrated blinds used by Alavus Ikkunat Oy are the only model proven to be tight-fitting and therefore also suitable for energy class A windows.
Traditional blinds with a tilt wand
Traditional blinds with a tilt wand can also be installed to the windows. This is the only alternative when blinds are needed for a fixed window or a balcony door.
The openable window can be fitted with SOLAR Moon, a darkening blind, that is installed between the sashes. The darkening is completed with side wires.
The easy-to-use curtain is controlled with a knob on the surface of the sash. The darkening cellular fabric in SOLAR Moon is 100% polyester. The cellular fabric also acts as an additional insulation of the window and improves the window's heat resistance by 27% (VTT 2016). The cellular fabric also protects against heat of the sun, 86% of the sun's heat radiation is reflected. You can choose the darkening blinds white (SWAN 0201), gray (Dolphin 0633) or black (Charcoal 1831). From the outside, however, all fabrics are always white (SWAN 0201).
Technical blinds for large fixed windows
Alavus fixed windows (EKA) can be equipped with a technical blind with SmartCord Duette cellular. The folded blinds are elegant and beautiful interior elements that can be used to replace the traditional curtains. Thanks to its technical characteristics, the blinds even out the temperature in the room and improve the acoustics. The technical curtain with SmartCord is available in white (SWAN 2946790000), gray (DOLPHIN 0633) and black (CHARCOAL 1831).
Ventilation fittings can also be added as an accessory for openable windows, in which case the ventilation portion is equipped with an espagnolette lock system and AutoLock venting hardware as well as a fixed handle.

An excellent accessory for the ventilation window is an aluminium frame insect screen. The insect screen is delivered separately, but installation is easy using the instructions provided. We recommend removing insect screens for the winter, as small birds may damage it by pecking at insects stuck to it. Insect screens can be ordered with a traditional plastic screen, a more durable aluminium screen or an allergy screen.
The lattices make windows attractive and individual. Window washing is still easy, as the lattice is detachable.
The lattice that is compatible with aluminium windows is 25 mm wide aluminium. The aluminium lattice is installed on the surface of the exterior sash at the factory.
Lattices for wood windows (MSE, MEK) can be made from wood or plastic.
Fixed muntins can be used to make genuine-looking panes that mimic mullions for openable float glass windows. Fixed muntins are a more economical option compared to genuine mullions. The width options are 32 mm and 64 mm.
Genuine muntins can also be made for the exterior sash of openable wood windows. Available widths are 34 mm and 68 mm.
Genuine aluminium muntins 32 mm and 64 mm
Fresh air vents and supply air vents
Fresh air vents
When a building has pressurised used air exchange, fresh air can be directed into the building in a controlled way through fresh air vents installed in the windows' frames. Installation of vents is recommended as part of renovations, as the building's impermeability may increase and cause pressured ventilation to stop working. Measurement and location of fresh air vents is always done separately for each room in the space being renovated.
Supply air windows
When a building has a constantly running mechanical ventilation system, a good replacement air solution is supply air vents installed in windows. The advantage of a supply air window vent is warming of supply air when it is circulated in the space between the window's sashes. The vent also has a summer position that enables conducting fresh, unheated supply air directly through the vent into the room.
Window sash support hardware
When opening large windows, the inner sash must be supported so that no excessive weight is placed on the hinges of the sash. The support of the sash can be done with an integrated sash support installed in the inner sash or with a separate sash support.
Separate sash support hardware
The integrated sash support is mounted on the inner sash of the outer edge. When the sash is opened the support hardware is folded down and when the sash is closed back the support hardware is folded back from the bottom of the sash.
