Vertical blind is made up of individual louvers or slats that clip vertically on to a sliding track at the top and are joined together by weights and stabilizing weight and chains at the foot of the blind. Each slat hangs vertically and the entire blind is operated by a chain and a separate cord. The chain (or wand) control is used to tilt and turn the slats while the cord control opens and closes the blind. Vertical blinds are available in a range of fabrics, colors and patterns to suit a wide variety of environments and interior styles.
