Specialist blinds for architectural projects

Working with architects and designers Guthrie Douglas create spectacular glass structures that illuminate buildings, creating memorable spaces. Using automated tensioned fabrics Guthrie Douglas precisely regulate heat gain and glare whatever the angle or shape of the glazing, disappearing when not needed and letting the outside world in. From simple skylights and rooflights to huge glass atria and complex facades, Guthrie Douglas’ specialist blind systems adapt to the design and help you to deliver comfortable, energy efficient buildings.

Glazpart and Guthrie Douglas engineers work closely to optimise the operation of the tensioned fabric system and motor components to deliver optimum design to some of the best known structures in the world.

Here is just one example of the joint product development and delivery of a key component – Spring Cassette

“Guthrie Douglas has a long standing relationship with Glazpart, I have personally worked with Glazpart via Guthrie Douglas for over 10 years purchasing new technical mouldings with tooling and value added mould and component assembly.

The involvement from a design perspective with Glazpart is highly valued by the engineering staff at Guthrie Douglas. The advice from the sales and design team at Glazpart is always exceptional, the teams have been stable over the last 10 years and Glazpart really understand Guthrie Douglas, they understand our needs and because of this Glazpart understand our products, the product requirements and challenges, Glazpart are invested in Guthrie Douglas product.

The Glazpart knowledge base is exceptional, tooling production in or out of house has been timely, the quality is fantastic and the engineers at Guthrie Douglas feel as proud of the tooling as Glazpart toolmakers are. Materials knowledge is very strong and Glazpart have been open about bringing in other supplier experts, their advice as a collective has been hugely rewarding.

Overall we feel welcomed by Glazpart, we meet the people that do the work, to meet designers, toolmakers and account mangers as regular as we do, adds the depth of supplier customer relationship, it goes beyond component or cost of component, the people, the advice they offer, and the value they add is the real strength of our partnership.”
