UK, Chichester. Oceanair, the marine blind specialist, has launched a new Designer Collection and a new Homeworks system called RadioRA2. The former was inspired by a number of factors including nature and the automotive sector.
From bamboo and glossy or matt finishes to frosted laminated slats, the collection provides designers with a wide range of options for their interior projects. “There is so much choice in texture, material, finish and colour — all interior desires can be met,” says Ian Howarth, Oceanair’s sales and marketing director, about the Designer Collection. “Oceanair’s Skyvenetian blinds take light management and room temperature control to a new level of style and the slat collection is the perfect complement, bringing personalised enchanting detail to any interior. We are very excited about launching the range to the perfect audience of designers and superyacht owners.”
The announcement also sees the introduction of curved aluminium slats to its Skyvenetian collection. The development allows the firm to manufacture longer slats for wider window areas thanks to the material’s stiffness and rigidity. It also provides a thinner slat option compared to its wooden alternative, and achieves a more contemporary and sleek finish. Its curved shape maintains privacy when at horizontal tilt and thanks to its smaller stack height, it enables the blind to fit into smaller recess areas when not in use.
While extending its slat material and finish options, Oceanair has also launched its wireless RadioRA2, which is designed to make the operation of blinds easy using a mobile device. The unit is said to be compatible with the latest iDevices and can be used to control blinds in a single room or throughout a yacht. The unit can also be integrated into other light and temperature systems onboard.
“Oceanair is always looking to push the boundaries of blind design and control and is proud that this latest innovation of RadioRA2 technology sets the bar for reliability, precision and accuracy,” says Suzie Holland at Oceanair. “This unique system uses a dedicated network, a quiet frequency band and group commands to ensure smooth communication between the system devices.”
