HiTech Expands Into New Manufacturing Facility

Specialist integral blind manufacturer, Hitech Blinds, has moved to a new 8,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility.

“The move to our new site allows us to manufacture in excess of 1,000 IGUs with blinds a week, plus our new HiTech TRL90 Rooflight with automatic blind. It gives us the capacity grow but do so sustainably”, he said.

HiTech Blinds started production of its new aluminium rooflight system at the beginning of this year. The easy-to-install system is suitable for new build installation or retro-fit and is manufactured in an ultra-slim, high performance and thermally broken aluminium profile.

With a choice of double-or triple glazed energy efficient options, the HiTech TRL90 Rooflight, is supplied with a white pleated and fully retractable integrated blind, as standard. This can be closed or opened, sitting neatly behind a ceramic paint surround when fully retracted.
