Vertical blinds have vinyl, fabric or wood vanes, also known as slats, which hang from top to bottom. These vanes rotate clockwise and counter clockwise to open and close. Most vertical blinds also feature a mechanism allowing them to pull from side to side. The most common repairs involve fixing the hole at the top of the vanes using a vane saver, and replacing valance clips as well as the tilt mechanism or control ends.
Vertical blinds go great in commercial or residential applications. The vertical blinds are often the least expensive blinds per square foot making them ideal for large window openings.
