Frequently asked questions
Where can I examine and order window coverings from JASNO?
JASNO sells its products via selected dealers. They have product and colours samples in their showroom, and can advise you in detail on all the options available. In our dealer locator, quickly find a JASNO dealer near you. It is also possible to visit the JASNO showroom. The showroom is not a sales outlet, but is the ideal place to examine our range, and receive advice.
What are the opening hours of the showroom?
The JASNO showroom in Eersel is open from Monday to Friday between 09.00 to 17.00 hours. JASNO regularly organises special Sunday opening hours for consumers interested in JASNO window decorations. On these Sundays, you are welcome to visit the showroom for advice about JASNO products between 11.00 and 16.00 hours.
What is the delivery time?
From the moment JASNO receives the order, the delivery times are:
- shutters approx. 12-13 weeks
- blinds approx. 8-9 weeks
- folding curtains (folds) approx. 5-6 weeks
- vertical louvers (swings) approx. 4-5 weeks
Sustainability is a priority at JASNO. Sea cargo imposes fewer burdens on our environment, and this form of transport is standard at JASNO.
As an option, shutters and blinds can be supplied by air cargo, for an additional charge. Delivery times then shortened to approx. 6 weeks for shutters and approx. 5 weeks for blinds.
What explains the price difference between different suppliers?
There are numerous factors that influence the price of shutters, blinds, folding curtains and vertical louvers. For example:
- the shape of the window;
- the material, such as the type of wood used;
- the (paint) finish;
- the operating mechanism;
- the service from the supplier.
It is good to look at products from different manufacturers. Make sure you are not comparing apples with oranges. There are huge differences in quality.
Does JASNO hold special offers/promotional campaigns?
JASNO does not hold special offers/promotional campaigns. This means our prices are guaranteed to be the same, everywhere. The prices charged by JASNO are excluding travel and fitting costs. For details ask your dealer.
Does the price include fitting?
The prices charged by JASNO are excluding travel and fitting costs. For the exact costs, we advise you to get in touch with a dealer near you.
What options can you offer for a tilt-and-turn window?
You can excellently combine a tilt-and-turn window with JASNO shutters. There are two options for fitting shutters: On the tilt-and-turn window or in front of the tilt-and-turn window.
Another option for tilt-and-turn windows is to fit JASNO folds, design folding curtains, ‘in the window opening’. The tilt-and-turn window can then be tilted open when the folds are raised. It is also possible to fit our blinds and vertical louvers (swings) on the wall.
How child safe are window decorations from JASNO?
JASNO gives high priority to child-safe window decorations. Children can become entangled in the loop of draw cords and chains used to operate the window covering. For that reason, our products are protected in a variety of ways, to prevent this risk.
In 2016, JASNO introduced the child-safe hanger mechanism. This patented mechanism is mounted on the operating chain for folds and the operating cord for swings. The mechanism cuts through the chain or cord whenever pressure is applied to the loop, thereby preventing the risk of entanglement. Replacing a cut cord or chain is not covered by the product warranty.
The cords at the back of the folds also break free if pressure if applied to the cord. The refitting of cords that have broken free is not covered by the warranty.
How do I clean shutters, blinds, folding curtains of vertical louvers?
JASNO shutters, blinds, folding curtains (folds) and vertical louvers (swings) are very easy to maintain.
Shutters and blinds:
Dust and mild soiling can be easily removed with a feather duster or Swiffer. More stubborn dirt can be removed with a slightly damp cloth. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents, which can damage the paint.
The woven paper can easily be cleaned with a brush or vacuum cleaner at a low setting. Just like our shutters and blinds, you can clean the wooden strips with a duster or slightly damp cloth. Avoid using cleaning agents on our folding curtains, too, because they can damage the paint on the wooden strips and the paper.
To remove dust from JASNO swings, use a vacuum cleaner at a low setting – with the brush head – or a soft brush or Swiffer. For project cleaning, contact a professional cleaning company.
Our YouTube channel features a series of short films about cleaning our products.
How does the JASNO app work?
The free JASNO App for iPhone, iPad2, iPod Touch and Android visualises what shutters and blinds could look like in the windows of your home.
Take a photograph with your telephone or select a photograph from your album in the app; on the photograph mark the corner points of the window/door/passageway or cupboard, enter the width, select shutters or blinds and they will appear in the marked field.
You can then make a series of alterations: change the colour of the shutters or blinds, the number of panels, the operating system or the louver size. You can also fit multiple shutters or blinds in a single photograph, to create the total look.
Finished your adjustments? The photograph can now be stored in your photo gallery, mailed or shared via social media.
Are JASNO products covered by a warranty?
As standard, you enjoy a three-year warranty on manufacturing errors and paint discolouration on shutters and blinds. For folds and swings, we offer a two-year warranty on the textile and three years on the headrail and operating mechanism.
When the products are delivered, they are accompanied by a code. Register this code on the website, for additional extended warranty.
Children can become entangled in the loop of draw cords, chains and cords used to operate the window coverings. To prevent this happening, the cords at the back of JASNO folds break free, if pressure is applied to the cord. On the operating cord of swings or operating chain of folds, the child-safe hanger mechanism cuts through the loop, when pressure is applied. The refitting of cords and the replacement of a cord or chain that is cut by the child-safe hanger mechanism are not covered by the warranty.
Can I use JASNO products in the bathroom?
Shutters and blinds are ideally suited for use in the bathroom.
Aqualine shutters and wooden blinds from JASNO give your bathroom a magnificent appearance, creating the delightful relaxed sense of wellness in such an attractive room.
Waterproofness is the number one characteristic of Aqualine shutters, making them the ideal window decoration for damp rooms such as the bathroom. These shutters are produced entirely from ABS, a high-quality plastic. Thanks to the material, Aqualine shutters are the perfect solution for windows in damp rooms. These waterproof shutters are available in 6 popular white and cream tones, and in special shapes!
Do you prefer Ecowood or Primewood shutters in the bathroom? These shutters are also suitable for damp rooms. Make sure the room is well ventilated, or the warranty entitlement will expire.
Blinds are treated with a special paint or oil finish. The aluminium headrail is rust-resistant and thanks to the moisture-resistant qualities of JASNO blinds, they are perfectly suited for use in the bathroom or wellness room. However, they should not come into direct contact with water, although they can withstand condensation!
Frequently asked questions about JASNO Shutters
What are shutters?
Shutters are indoor window coverings with adjustable louvers. Do not confuse them with blinds or louver doors. The difference between shutters and blinds is that the louvers of blinds can be raised and lowered with a cord, while the louvers on shutters are mounted in a frame. The biggest difference between shutters and louver doors is that although louver doors also have louvers, unlike on shutters they are not movable. On the other hand, it is possible to order shutters with fixed louvers.
What should I look out for when purchasing shutters?
There are huge differences in the quality of shutters. Are you thinking of buying shutters? Then at least consider the following points:
- Hinges. JASNO supplies all its shutters as standard with countersunk hinges.
- Paint. JASNO uses scratch and impact-resistant furniture paint with UV blockers. The shutters receive several coats of paint.
- Warping. JASNO supplies its wooden shutters and other products with quarter-sawn louvers. This hugely reduces the risk of movement or warping of the louvers. This production method also makes it possible to manufacture panels, problem-free, with a maximum width of 91 cm.
- Warranty. 3-year warranty for manufacturing errors and paint discolouration; following registration on the warranty website, this is extended to 4 years.
Can I purchase shutters via my mortgage?
What is the blackout effect of shutters?
JASNO shutters are made from panels in which the louvers close very tightly. Nonetheless, tiny cracks remain between the louvers through which light can penetrate. Our shutters are finished with countersunk hinges. As a result, the gaps between the panel and the frame on JASNO shutters is less pronounced than with shutters made using surface-mounted hinges. JASNO shutters are always made to measure, and manufactured and fitted millimetre precise. To see for yourself the blackout effect of shutters, try visiting one of our dealers or the JASNO showroom in Eersel.
How do I operate the shutters?
The louvers on shutters can be operated in two ways. With an operating rod on the shutter louvers, or on shutters with no operating rod via the silentview remote control. The louvers without an operating rod are connected together by a mechanism in the side stile of the panel.
There are also various options for opening the panels, ranging from a folding rail to a hinged panel. The choice depends on the fitting method. Watch this short film to understand the options.
How are shutters attached?
Shutters can be attached in several different ways. On the wall, in the window opening, or on the window frame. When a dealer pays you a visit to measure the shutters for fitting, he will discuss which option best suits the window and your wishes. Watch this short film to understand the various fitting options.
How do I clean shutters?
Shutters are very easy to maintain.
Dust and mild soiling can easily be removed with a feather duster or Swiffer. More stubborn dirt can be removed with a slightly damp cloth. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents because they can damage the paint.
What is the difference between the various types of shutters?
The largest differences between the shutters from JASNO relate to the material used.
ABS (Aqualine shutter) is a plastic, making the shutters waterproof. Aqualine shutters are therefore perfectly suited for use in damp rooms such as bathrooms, wellness rooms and kitchens. Our wooden shutters are also finished with moisture-resistant paint and can perfectly well be used in a bathroom or kitchen, but they must not come into direct contact with water.
- Primewood: solid wood
- Ecowood: composite wood
- Ecowood plus: Wooden side stile with ABS louvers
- Aqualine: full ABS
Can the different shutter types be combined?
Absolutely. The white tones of the shutters match perfectly. In other words, you can easily combine different types of shutters in the same home or even the same room. We do not recommend using different types of shutters in a single window opening because of minor differences in design.
Are Primewood shutters more sustainable than Ecowood or Aqualine shutters?
The wood we use for our products is harvested and processed to be environmentally friendly. Our Primewood shutters are produced from white teak. The FSC® certification of Primewood shutters means we are not only able to demonstrate that the wood is 100% from FSC-certified woodland, but is also processed at an FSC-certified sawmill and factory.
For Ecowood shutters, we use wood fibres. By using this ‘residual product’, we handle our wood even more efficiently. Our Ecowood shutters are a sustainable product and an excellent addition to Primewood shutters.
Aqualine shutters are also a sustainable choice. Aqualine shutters are made from the strong plastic ABS. This material is also used for lego blocks and car bumpers. This strong window covering lasts for years.
In what colours are shutters available?
Primewood shutters are available in a variety of paint and wood stain colours. Can you not find the colour you are looking for? Primewood shutters can be supplied in any RAL or NCS colour.
Ecowood shutters are available in the 5 most commonly requested white tones.
Ecowood plus shutters are available in 18 colours.
Aqualine shutters are available in 6 different white and cream tones.
What shutters can I best use in my bathroom?
Aqualine shutters are the best for use in the bathroom. Waterproofness is the number one characteristic of these shutters, making them ideally suited for damp rooms. These shutters are produced entirely from ABS, a high-quality plastic.
Aqualine shutters are available in 6 popular white and cream colours, and are also available for special window shapes.
In other words, the ideal window decoration for the bathroom!
Which shutters can I best use in my kitchen?
The shutters from JASNO are treated with a special paint. This makes the shutters moisture-resistant and ideally suited for use in a kitchen window. These shutters can cope perfectly with condensation and the occasional splash of water. However, the wooden shutters should not come into direct contact with water. The waterproof Aqualine shutters produced in ABS can cope with direct contact with water.
Can I fit shutters in a bay window?
Absolutely. Bay windows and conservatories are the lightest places in your home and you want to keep it that way. Nonetheless, there are times when privacy is needed, too. This makes shutters the ideal solution. Easily decide for yourself the amount of light you let in. Shutters are made to measure and fit any bay window or conservatory.
Bay windows with stained glass can also be beautifully covered with shutters. Whereas with curtains the stained glass is covered, too, shutters can be installed below the stained glass windows, so you only cover the transparent windows. This means you can continue to enjoy the stained glass window effect!
Can I also use shutters outside?
Unfortunately this is not possible. Our products were developed exclusively for indoor applications.
Can shutters also be fitted on roof windows or tilt-and-turn windows?
For roof windows, we supply shutters in the standard sizes for the best-known brands Velux, Fakro and Rooflite. Our shutters can also be fitted on tilt-and-turn windows, either on the window itself or in front of the window. This makes them a better fit for the window than for example curtains.
Can I use shutters as cupboard doors?
Absolutely! Thanks to their excellently ventilating properties, shutters in fact form the ideal cupboard doors for example for walk-in cupboards. Whether large or small, cupboard doors from JASNO are always made to measure. It is even possible to fix the louvers, or to opt for a closed panel section, without louvers. This is known as a raised panel.
Can I create a room divider using shutters?
Any room can be simply divided up with a room divider. Shutters (and our vertical louvers) are ideally suited to this purpose. With the adjustable louvers and removable panels, the divided rooms can be easily rejoined, or re-separated.
How do I clean the windows behind the shutters?
The shutter panels can always be slid aside, or turned away from the window. This depends on the way in which the shutters are fitted. Watch this film to see how easily windows can be cleaned, behind shutters.
What louver widths are available?
Shutters from JASNO are available in four louver widths, namely 47 mm, 63 mm, 89 mm and the XXL louvers at 114 mm. The most commonly selected are 63 mm and 89 mm louver designs.
Can I replace a louver in my shutter?
When installing your shutters, the fitter will have left a number of spare louvers. If it becomes necessary to replace a louver, consult the relevant guide, via the links below. You can of course also contact your JASNO dealer where you purchased the shutters.
What is the maximum height for shutters?
We produce shutters up to a height of 338 cm. For additional rigidity, depending on the height, shutters are provided with one or two mid joints.
Is your window higher than 338 cm? Or do you want to be able to slide back and operate panels separately? Then simply opt for double-hung shutters: two rows of shutter panels one above the other. Via this option, we can provide shutters on windows higher than 338 cm. Our specialists can offer you all the advice you need about the options for shutters that ensure a perfect finish in your window!
What is the maximum shutter width available?
The maximum width of a single shutter panel is 91 cm. Is your window wider? In that case, multiple panels are placed alongside one another. In this way, your windows can be fitted with shutters with one, two or more panels. The number of panels for your shutters will be adjusted to the specified width: we always guarantee two equal halves.
If your window is wider than 250 cm, you will need a rail system to guide the shutters. JASNO offers a range of subtle rail systems for shutters. A rail system is also a practical and attractive solution for shutters on sliding door or French windows!
Can I see in advance what shutters would look like in my window?
On social media and on our inspiration page, you will see numerous examples of our shutters. You may find a picture that matches the situation of your windows.
To see what shutters would look like in your window, why not download the free JASNO app for iPhone, iPad2, iPod Touch and Android? This app visualises shutters and wooden blinds in the windows of your home. In just a few steps, see what shutters would look like in your windows.
How long is the warranty on shutters?
We at JASNO want you to be confident in the quality of our products. We are happy to offer an extended warranty on our products. Make sure you keep the proof of purchase.
On our shutters, we offer a 3-year warranty on manufacturing errors and paint discoloration. If you register on the warranty website, this is extended to 4 years.
Keen to hear the conditions? Take a quick look at our warranty page.
What is the delivery time for shutters?
From the moment JASNO receives your order, the delivery time for shutters is approx. 12-13 weeks.
Sustainability is a priority at JASNO. Sea cargo imposes fewer burdens on our environment and as a result is the standard transport method we employ. Subject to an additional charge, shutters can be transported by air cargo. The delivery time is then reduced to approx. 7 weeks.
How child safe are shutters?
Shutters involve no cords or other parts that reduce child safety.
Can shutters be used for special window shapes?
Shutters offer one of the few solutions available for special window shapes. Because JASNO produces all of its shutters made to measure, we can create any shape you require. Special window shapes specifically do full justice to shutters from JASNO.
Can shutters be placed below stained glass windows?
Shutters can certainly be placed below stained glass windows. Whereas with curtains the stained glass is covered, by installing shutters below the stained glass window section, you only cover the transparent window using the shutters. As a result, with the shutters closed, you can still enjoy the stained glass, from inside!
Can shutters be combined with blinds?
Our shutters are available in the same colours as our blinds. By opting for wooden shutters, the differences between the two product types are reduced even further. In other words, shutters can be perfectly combined with blinds, even in the same room.
Are JASNO shutters available with electrical operation?
We are not able to supply electrically operated shutters. This makes it impossible to order shutters with a remote control for domotic systems.
Frequently asked questions about JASNO blinds
What are blinds?
JASNO blinds are window coverings that help you create a unique atmosphere in any room in your home. The blinds can be assembled according to your wishes. You can choose the colour, the louver width, the cord buttons and make a free choice from the ladder strips and cord collection.
What should I look out for when buying blinds?
When buying blinds always remember the following:
• Paint finish. Thanks to the scratchproof, moisture-proof and UVresistant paint finish, blinds with a paint or wood stain coating are also suitable for bathroom windows. Part of the JASNO standard: the sides of the wooden louvers are also colour finished.
• Moisture resistance. Our wooden blinds are suitable for use in a bathroom or wellness area, if you select the aluminium headrail.
• Cord buttons. JASNO supplies its cord buttons in the same colour as the louvers.
• Bottom rail. The bottom rail from JASNO is trapezium shaped, thereby preventing any damage to the windowsill.
• Warping. JASNO supplies its wooden blinds with quarter-sawn louvers. As a result, the likelihood of the louvers twisting or warping is very low. The production method also makes it possible to manufacture very wide wooden blinds, problem-free.
•Width and height. JASNO is able to produce wooden blinds up to a maximum height and width of 304 cm.
• Warranty. JASNO offers a 3-year warranty for manufacturing faults and paint discoloration. Following registration on the warranty website, this warranty period is extended to 4 years.
Do blinds offer an effective blackout?
A unique characteristic of our blinds is that the cords run up and down the front and back of each louver rather than through holes drilled in the middle of the louvers. In blinds from other manufacturers, the cords pass through elliptical holes in the middle of the louvers. As a result, our blinds deliver an extra blackout effect, a clean look and more privacy. This so-called privacy model is standard on all blinds without decorative ladder strip.
Can I also use blinds in the bathroom?
Our wooden blinds are suitable for use in the bathroom, where they can cope with condensation and the occasional splatter with water. However, you must make sure that the blinds are not placed in direct contact with water.
Make sure you order our blinds with an aluminium headrail instead of the steel version. Aluminium is moisture resistant.
What is the difference between blinds and luxaflex?
Luxaflex is a brand selling blinds. Over the years, Luxaflex has become a household name (in the Netherlands) for the window decoration known as a horizontal blind or venetian blind. JASNO sells blinds, in the same way as Luxaflex.
How do I clean blinds?
Blinds are a low-maintenance product.
Dust and light soiling can be easily removed with a feather duster or Swiffer. Remove stubborn stains with a damp cloth. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents, since these can damage the paint.
Can I fit blinds in a kitchen?
Wooden blinds from JASNO are treated with a special paint. This makes them perfectly suitable for windows in a kitchen. Condensation and the occasional splatter with water are not a problem. However, blinds should never be placed in direct contact with water.
Can blinds be fitted in a bay window?
Because JASNO blinds are always made to measure, they are certainly also suitable for use in a bay window. In addition, our wooden blinds have a natural light insulating effect. This characteristic makes JASNO wooden blinds perfect for bay windows. They make your bay window cooler in the summer while in the winter you can open the blinds wide, to allow any warmth from the sun to enter the room.
How do I operate blinds?
Blinds are operated using cords. Using the tilt cord, you can tilt the louvers to the required position and so determine the amount of light entering the room. With a pull cord, you can raise or lower the louvers.
What louver widths are available?
Wooden blinds from JASNO are available in two louver widths: 50 mm and 63 mm.
What is the difference between ladder strip and ladder cord?
The louvers of a blind are joined together with a cord. The cord makes it possible for you to operate the louvers. On blinds with a ladder cord, the cord runs up and down the front and back of the louvers. As a result, JASNO blinds offer an additional blackout effect, a clean look and more privacy.
On blinds with a ladder strip, the cord runs through holes in the middle of the louver. They are finished at front and back with a decorative strip. Click here to view our collection of ladder strips.
What is the thickness of the set of louvers?
Are the sides of the louvers the same colour as the louvers themselves?
This is not standard practice everywhere, but at JASNO, the sides of the louvers are painted in the same colour as the blinds, as standard.
What is the maximum width of blinds?
Painted wooden blinds are produced for windows with a maximum width of 304 cm, wooden blinds with a wood stain finish and blinds with a matt oil layer finish are available for windows up to a maximum width of 243 cm.
If your window is wider, we can install two (or more) blinds next to each other.
What is the maximum height of blinds?
We produce wooden blinds for windows up to a height of 304 cm.
Can blinds also be used on angled windows or windows with a special shape?
No, our blinds are only suitable for use on ‘normal’ straight windows. For angled windows or windows with a special shape, we do offer an alternative. Shutters are a fantastic solution for covering these windows.
What is the price of blinds?
JASNO blinds are all tailor-made to fit your windows. The price of the blinds depends on the dimensions of the window and the collection you choose. Installation costs depend on distance and choosen solution for the situation and will therefore be calculated by one of the JASNO partners nearby.
For a more accurate price quotation, visit one of our expert dealers.
What material is used for the headrail?
As standard, the headrail of JASNO blinds is made from steel. With our wooden blinds you can also choose to fit an aluminium headrail. If you plan to use wooden blinds in a wet room like the bathroom, we would recommend use of an aluminium headrail. The aluminium headrail does not rust, and is resistant to the moist atmosphere.
Can I see what blinds would look like in my windows?
There are plenty of examples of fitted wooden blinds on social media and on our inspiration page. Maybe you will find something that matches the situation in your home.
To find out what our blinds would really look like in your windows, you can download the free JASNO App for iPhone, iPad2, iPod Touch and Android. This app visualises the look of shutters and blinds in the windows of your home. Follow a few simple steps to see for example what our blinds would look like in your kitchen window.
How long is the product warranty on blinds?
We at JASNO want you to feel confident with the quality of our products. We are therefore happy to offer an extensive product warranty. Make sure you keep the proof of purchase.
On our blinds we offer a 3-year warranty for manufacturing errors and paint discoloration. If you register on the warranty website, we extend this warranty to 4 years.
What is the delivery time for blinds?
From the moment JASNO receives your order, the delivery time for blinds is around 8-9 weeks.
JASNO recognises the importance of sustainability. Sea cargo is less burdensome for our environment so this is our standard transport method. On request, for an extra charge, the blinds can be transported by air cargo. The delivery time is then reduced to around 5 weeks.
How child safe are blinds?
The chains and cords of our window decorations are protected in several ways, to prevent entanglement.
Blinds are operated with a pull cord. They should be attached around the cord holder, out of the reach of children. Make sure you do not join up the security cord cutter. This may prevent the cutter functioning correctly.
Can blinds be combined with other window decorations?
Our shutters are available in the same colours as our blinds. By opting for wooden shutters, the differences between the two products are reduced even further. In other words, shutters can even be perfectly combined with blinds, in the same room.
Frequently asked questions about folding curtains or JASNO folds
What are folds?
JASNO folds are unlike any other folding curtain you know. The textile is produced from woven paper. This gives the folds a tough durable look. Perhaps the most eye-catching element of the folds is the wooden strips. Match the colour of the textile to the wooden strips for a calm look. Or opt for a contrasting colour combination, and make your window a real eye-catcher. Also look out for the details of the folds such as the small buttons on the strips, or the way the paper is beautifully finished in the headrail.
What should I look out for when purchasing folding curtains?
When purchasing folding curtains, always remember:
• Material. JASNO produces its folding curtains from woven paper and the wooden strips are made from Abachi wood.
• Finish. JASNO finishes its folding curtains with buttons on the wooden strips.
• Width and height. JASNO can produce folding curtains up to a height of 320 cm and a width of 240 cm.
• Warranty. JASNO offers a 2-year warranty on the textile, 3 years for the headrail, wooden strips and operating mechanism. If you register on the warranty website, the warranty is extended to 2.5 years and 4 years, respectively.
What material is used for folds?
The fabric of JASNO folds is produced from woven paper. The wooden strips are made from Abachi wood.
If you choose the blackout version, a polyester fabric liner is added.
How do I operate a folding curtain?
Folds are supplied as standard with an operating chain. Always use the operating chain to raise or lower the fold. When operating the chain, avoid rubbing the chain against the woven paper. The woven paper is vulnerable to damage.
It is also possible to opt for electrically operated folds. These can be operated with a Somfy remote control, or connected to a domotic system.
Are folds available with electrical operation?
This is certainly an option. The operating system for folds is available in two variants. With an operating chain or Somfy remote control.
With the Somfy operating system, folds are operated with a Somfy remote control device, or connected to a domotic system.
What is the maximum width of folds?
Folds are available up to a maximum width of 240 cm, in a single section. If your window is wider, we will fit two or more folds in the window opening.
What is the maximum height of folds?
Folds are available up to a maximum height of 320 cm.
How do I clean folding curtains?
Folding curtains are very easy to maintain.
The woven paper can be kept clean with a brush or vacuum cleaner, switched to the lowest setting. Just like our shutters and blinds, the wooden strips can be cleaned with a duster or slightly damp cloth. Avoid the use of cleaning agents because they can damage the paper or paint on the wooden strips. Unfortunately, it is not possible to clean the woven paper with a damp cloth.
Can I use folding curtains in the kitchen?
In the kitchen there is always a risk of the folds being splashed with water, or greasy deposits on the window covering. Unfortunately, the woven paper cannot be cleaned with a damp cloth. For use in the kitchen, we therefore recommend a window covering that is resistant to moisture, for example shutters or blinds.
Can I fit folding curtains in a bay window?
Our products are ideal for use in a bay window, including our folds. A bay window is in fact a superb location for JASNO folds. Hang them over the entire height, or position the top of the folding curtain lower down. This is for example particularly attractive if you have stained glass windows. This option allows you to continue to enjoy the unique window feature.
What is the blackout effect of JASNO folds?
Folding curtains are available in three transparencies. Depending on your choice you decide on the blackout effect of your folding curtains. You can opt for the semi-transparent, light-permeable version or the light-filtering variant with a subtle light effect or the full blackout version. If you wish to install folds in the bedroom, we recommend opting for the blackout version since this thoroughly darkens your bedroom.
What is the price of folding curtains?
How long is the warranty on folds?
We at JASNO want you to be confident in the quality of our products. We are happy to offer an extended warranty on our products. Make sure you keep your proof of purchase.
On folds we offer a 2-year warranty on the textile and 3 years on the headrail, wooden strips and operating mechanism. Following registration on the warranty website, this warranty is extended to 2.5 and 4 years, respectively.
What is the delivery time for folds?
From the moment JASNO receives the order, the delivery time for folds is approx. 4-5 weeks.
Where are folds manufactured?
We manufacture folds in the Netherlands. Anything that can be done close to home, we do. Sustainability and quality are important to us.
How child safe are folds?
The chains and cords of our window coverings are secured in different ways, to prevent the risk of strangulation.
Folds are fitted with a child-proof hanger mechanism that cuts through the operating cord whenever weight is applied to the loop. If you accidentally pull on the hanger device, the aluminium sleeve slides off the hanger, so the cutting device is not activated. Remember to return the sleeve.
In addition, a child-safe clip and ring are attached to the back of the fold. If you pull the folding curtain down at the bottom or if you become entangled in the cords, this clip and ring ensure that the cord breaks free at the back.
Frequently asked questions about vertical louvers or JASNO swings
What are swings?
JASNO swings are vertical louvers with a surprising 3D effect!
The unique element of these so-called JASNO swings is that the louvers can be easily adjusted to surprising settings. Swings create atmosphere and are a practical window covering. With the operating chain, the louvers are alternately set in motion. This results in an attractive 3D effect. Opened, (almost) closed and anywhere in between. Adjust sunlight, privacy or a unique look, with a single pull of the chain!
What should I look for when purchasing vertical louver blinds?
When purchasing vertical louver blinds, at least remember the following:
• Material. JASNO swings are available in three transparencies. You can select from vertical louvers in plastic or trevira cs.
• Finish. If you opt for fabric louvers, a louver weight wrapped in textile ensures that the swings flap as little as possible.
• Width and height. JASNO is able to manufacture vertical louvers up to a height of 400 cm and a maximum width of 575 cm.
• Warranty. JASNO offers a 2-year warranty on the textile, 3 years on the headrail, plastic components and operating mechanism. Following registration on the warranty website this is extended to 2.5 years and 4 years respectively.
What is the blackout effect of vertical louvers?
Swings are available in three transparencies. From maximum privacy to maximum transparency. The Petrol louvers (plastic) are the least transparent (minimal light passage); louvers from the Sahara collection (trevira cs) permit more light to pass through them, while the louvers from the Urban collection (trevira cs fabric) are the most transparent. Vertical louvers do not provide a full blackout effect.
How do I clean vertical louvers?
Dust can be quickly and easily removed from JASNO swings. Clean the vertical louvers with a vacuum cleaner switched to a low setting – with the brush head – or use a soft brush or duster. It is also possible to wipe trevira cs louvers clean with a slightly damp cloth.
Plastic louvers do not require regular cleaning. If necessary, cleaning is extremely simple: rinse with a mild detergent and water, and allow to dry. The best result is achieved by not cleaning the louvers with just water, and then allowing them to dry in the air, rather than wiping them dry.
Can I use swings to create a room divider?
It is certainly possible to create an attractive room divider using JASNO swings. Slide the louvers out of sight when not in use; decide on the play of light you require, and enjoy the attractive 3D effect. Thanks to the choice of different materials and the possibility of combining two materials or fabrics, you can always find a room divider using vertical louvers that matches your interior.
Can I use swings in the kitchen?
In the kitchen, there is always a risk of incidental water splash and greasy deposits. We therefore recommend choosing a window covering in the kitchen that can cope with these risks. Swings are available in three different materials. Plastic swings are the most ‘kitchen-proof’ but swings produced from trevira fabric are also suitable for use in the kitchen.
Can I fit swings in a bay window?
JASNO swings are always tailor made and are therefore ideal for use in a bay window. Rails are installed in front of each window section. Remember, we are not able to supply curved rails.
What materials are used for making JASNO swings?
JASNO swings are available in a variety of transparencies and materials. You can create the desired light effect in any room, and achieve the level of privacy you require, using vertical louvers. All our louvers are fire retardant.
- Petrol: these plastic louvers offer a full blackout effect.
- Sahara: using these fabric louvers, produced from 100% trevira cs, you create a subtle light effect through the louvers.
- Urban: these fabric louvers produced from 100% trevira cs are the most transparent in the range, thanks to the fine structure of this high-quality material.
What is the maximum height of swings?
Vertical louvers can be produced up to a maximum height of 400 cm.
What is the maximum width of swings?
Swings look great in a wide window feature. Swings can be produced up to a maximum width of 575 cm. Are your windows wider? We simply install more than one set of swings next to each other.
What colours can I choose from?
The colour collection for vertical louvers consists of 47 colours and three transparencies. It is also possible to combine two colours in a single swing. This emphasises the unique 3D effect of the swings even further. We recommend opting for two colours in the same material.
What different louver sizes are available?
All three materials can be supplied in two different louver sizes, namely 89 mm and 127 mm.
What is the colour of the headrail?
The headrail is available in two variants. You can choose from matt white or matt aluminium.
How long is the warranty on swings?
At JASNO we want you to be confident in the quality of our products. We therefore offer an extended guarantee on our products. Remember to keep the proof of purchase.
On our swings we offer a 2-year warranty on the textile and 3 years on the headrail, plastic components and operating mechanism. Following registration on the warranty website, this warranty is extended to 2.5 years and 4 years, respectively.
What is the delivery time for swings?
From the moment JASNO receives the order, the delivery time for vertical louvers is approx. 4-5 weeks.
How child safe are swings?
The chains and cords of our window coverings are secured in several ways to avoid the risk of entanglement.
Swings are fitted with a child-safe hanger mechanism that cuts through the operating cord if any weight is applied to the loop. If you accidentally pull on the hanging mechanism, the aluminium sleeve slides off the hanger, which ensures that the cutting device is not activated. Simply replace the sleeve. The operating chain is also secured with a break clip, which ensures that the chain breaks if you become entangled in it.
