Add-On Blinds for Doors vs. traditional blinds

You expect a lot from your entry doors. They take an active role in your home, as they send you and your family out into the world, welcome you home again, and invite guests to visit. Your doors reflect who you are: your taste for design, your love of inviting the outside in, and at times your desire for a bit more privacy. You expect a lot from your doors, and you should have the same high expectations for the blinds you place on them. Thanks to ODL, blinds can be a welcome addition to your door!

Beyond traditional blinds: Like most blinds, ODL Add-On Blinds for Doors provide a nice solution for light and privacy control: close them for complete privacy, open them up to connect with the outdoors, or adjust to somewhere in between. But ODL Add-On Blinds, designed specifically for entry doors, offer much more. While traditional blinds are meant for the relatively sedentary life of a window, ODL Add-On Blinds for Doors are engineered to accommodate all the opening-and-shutting demands that everyday life places on your doors.

Easy install: ODL Add-On Blinds are engineered to quickly and simply 'add-on' over your existing door glass using provided brackets; most installations take less than an hour with the help of a screwdriver. Unlike traditional window blinds, ODL Add-On Blinds feature an extra layer of tempered safety glass that helps ensure they are up to the challenges of your door.

Always look like new: Once installed, your ODL door blinds are enclosed between the unit's glass panel and your door glass. Being protected, the blinds stay clear and free of damage from kids, pets, and anything else that might come into contact with your door glass. Blinds between glass retain their 'like new' look over time and with repeated use.

No cords = safer: ODL Add-on Blinds eliminate the annoying dangling cords found on traditional blinds. The lack of any exposed cord offers a safer environment for your children and pets. In fact, ODL Add-On Blinds have received the Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) Seal of Approval and the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) Best for Kids certificate. Both organizations strongly urge parents to use window coverings without accessible cords in homes with children. ODL is proud to be an industry leader in producing doorglass blinds that reduce the safety risk for children and pets.

No dusting, easy cleaning:
Dusting traditional window blinds is probably low on your list of favorite activities. Since ODL Add-On Blinds for Doors are enclosed behind glass, you can cross dusting off your list entirely! Simply use your favorite glass cleaner to wipe away any fingerprints or smudges that find their way on the glass as life travels in and out through your door.

A quiet addition: ODL Add-On Blinds are prepared to go along for the ride, handling all the swinging and pivoting of your door with ease. The enclosed design eliminates the banging and slamming you'd get with traditional door blinds. It all makes ODL Add-On Blinds not just a welcome addition to your door, but a quiet one as well.

Precise and smooth control: While traditional blinds require twisting a rod or pulling a cord to adjust, Add-On Blinds offer precise and smooth adjustments. Two controls are integrated into the frame design and provide smooth adjustments to tilt and to raise or lower the blinds to your exact desire. Add-On Blinds adjust to provide a full unobstructed view, allowing you to view the great outdoors (or perhaps your children playing), or to provide the privacy you may desire in the evening, or to help reduce the direct sun heat on a warm summer day. The choice is yours, and adjustments are easy!

You expect a lot from your doors. You'll find that ODL Add-On Blinds for Doors are specially designed for the life of a door, far outperforming traditional window blinds. They are most definitely a welcome addition to any door!
