  20. I have integral Blinds that my supplier is telling my are genuine SwiftGlide Integral Blinds. How can i confirm this for certain? Is there anyway I can tell they are real SwiftGlide? Yes there is, as from March 2017 all our integral blinds with few exceptions carry our branding in the form of an internal label on the right hand side of the gravity bar on our rasise and lower product and on our headrail on the tilt only product.

    Our labels if you want to measure then ought measure 70mm in width and 6mm in height and are either white or black depending on the blind colour.

    The control cases carry the branding also. This should not be removed as it will invalidate the warranty.

    You may request that we put the branding on the gravity bar on the outer face rather than the inner face.
     

  21. Do I have to have all the optional items such as MagStops, Enhanced SwiftGlide Controls and Colour Matched Controls? No they are optional so you don't have to have them. However most people do have them and in fact it is very rare that an order leaves our factory without them.
