In the first quarter of this year, we had the chance of supplying bespoke skylight blinds and roller blinds for the Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna temple, located in Watford.
The project was a joint effort between SHY, who flawlessly performed the installation, and ourselves, who dealt with the supply and logistics.
Three types of blinds were used: Diaz chain-operated roller blinds and two kinds of bespoke electrically-operated skylight blinds by SHY, made to the exact measure and shape required.
The electric blinds are conveniently controlled using a 16-channel system, via a wall switch and remote controls.
- Diaz chain operated roller blinds
- SHY FTS Skylight Blinds, triangular and upwards moving
- SHY Zip rectangular blind for the large stage window
- SHY rooflight blinds for the reception entrance

From the planning stages, we knew the project would require a different approach, with bespoke blinds made for uncommon windows. As expected, once the installation started, the triangular shape, dimensions and slope of the roof windows entailed a special challenge, which SHY’s expertise in design and fitting was able to meet. The installation took less than three weeks to complete.
