MANUFACTURE OF VERTICAL BLINDS OWN HANDS
Vertical window blinds are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to conventional curtains. They decorate not only the windows of office rooms, but also apartment windows. Unlike horizontal ones, they have many textures, colors and can even be a real picture. And the use of lambrequin in vertical blinds has become a novelty in the field of window design and confidently displaces curtains that absorb all the apartment dust like a sponge. Due to its practicality and versatility, demand is constantly growing, which gives the main impetus for the implementation of a business idea at home.
A window with vertical blinds is nothing more than a curtain rod with curtains, only they are able to transmit street light in a certain amount, depending on the adjustment. All fabric lamellas have a special impregnation, which has antistatic and dust-repellent properties. That is, unlike ordinary curtains, the fabric elements of the device do not collect dust in themselves, so they will require minimal maintenance. For the production of vertical blinds with your own hands, you do not need to rent a large room. It will be enough and a spacious room or, for example, a garage.
Installation of vertical blinds. The production technology is a bit simpler and less labor-intensive than the production of horizontal sun-protection structures on plastic windows. This makes the business more profitable and does not require large investments.
The main components of the structure:
Decorative cornice for vertical blinds.
Chains, laces for adjusting the angle of closure.
Inventory for fastening.
For the home production of the device you need certain equipment.
VERTICAL BLINDS PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT
Equipment and tools. Equipment can be manual or automated. The first version of the equipment for the production of vertical blinds with your own hands is cheaper, therefore, it will not require large investments for a business idea. At the same time, manual equipment will be enough for a full and high-quality production.
Equipment for the production of:
Additional equipment, materials and inventory.
Naturally, we showed a basic set of components and equipment for the production of blinds at home, but for full work you will also need additional (household) tools. For example, you need a construction tool (drill, screwdriver, grinder and others) for the installation of finished products. Also, sewing equipment is indispensable in this matter. You will need absolutely everything that will be at your fingertips from a pencil to a ruler.
PRODUCT DESIGN ASSEMBLY PROCESS
Assembly of the structure. The production technology itself is quite simple and concise. Vertical blinds consist of lamellas, which can be of various textures from fabric to wood. The height of the slats depends on the size of the window or balcony block. In any case, before starting production, you need to visit the client and take all your appropriate measurements. The width of the lamellas is standard and it is 8.9 cm or 12.7 cm. The lamellas are cut from the fabric (or other textures) using a manual machine. The machine performs several basic functions at once: bending the bottom and top of the lamella, cutting and punching a hole under the holder (depends on the equipment of the machine). Next, it is necessary to fix these bends with a sewing machine, that is, flash the lamellas. It is also possible to fix the curved edges of the lamellas with hot glue. Such glue does not leave traces on the fabric, it dries quickly, glues materials qualitatively and for a long time. Next, we will consider how to assemble vertical blinds in stages.
For clarity, all assembly elements are shown in the figure. And so the slats for vertical blinds are ready. Next they need to be put together. This can either be done already in place or half the process still in the workroom.
DIY vertical blind assembly has its own sequence of actions:
Selection of a cornice of a certain length.
Complete cornice with all necessary components (swivel mechanism, sliders, holders, etc.).
Fastening lamellas to runners.
Installation of weights in the lower bend of the lamellas.
Fastenings of a decorative chain in small weights.
To make the installation faster 4 and 5, the item above the above algorithm can be done at the workplace.
FINANCIAL PARTY OF BUSINESS IDEA
Consumables. This type of home business is quite profitable, but at the same time it does not require large investments. This fact makes this business fully recouped in the shortest possible time.
