The Benefits of Using a Blind Box
Most benefits of using any type of blind box are purely aesthetic. When used for hiding blind mechanisms, they completely conceal features of blinds and curtains that guests and visitors to any one location might otherwise find unappealing to view. When used in conjunction with light troughs, they may be used for the same purpose: to form an easy and consistent method of forming lighting designs while keeping infrastructure hidden.
Choosing to use GRG blind boxes rather than those made of another material will also present a number of other advantages that are likely to be of benefit to your planned architectural project. These advantages are related to the material’s strength, flexibility during the moulding process, and lightweight design.
The surface hardness and material strength of GRG offers greater durability for manufactured products, and its flexibility while unset means that practically any shape can be achieved quickly and cost-effectively when time and budget are both an issue. Considering this latter point alongside its lightweight, it becomes easier to see why GRG is said to offer a less labour-intensive installation and, overall, a more economical installation.
Glass-reinforced gypsum is also a Class 0 fire-rated material, meaning it is completely fire retardant. The density of the material can also be increased to accommodate acoustic requirements where this is necessary, and it is easily dressed and decorated to match the interior design of any room built or renovated. This includes options for painting the material in a range of styles and colours, and replicating different textures in cases where this is needed.
The latter of these advantages may be utilised in different ways, depending on the specifications of the project. GRG blind boxes may therefore be decorated in order to create an aesthetic border or perimeter which becomes its own distinguishing feature, or in a way which conceals them and creates the impression of a seamless transition between room and ceiling.
