ODL Blink 7/8” Custom Blinds + Glass

The Product

ODL's newest Blink Blinds + Glass product offering, 7/8" Custom provides light and privacy control in a 7/8" IG platform for windows and sliding patio doors.  

The slat design was optimized for use in a tighter airspace, components were specifically designed to eliminate friction points, and high-quality bearings and rollers were used to provide a smooth operating experience. There are multiple options for operator placement based on the window type and location in the home. A right- or a left-handed position may be specified to accommodate sliding windows and the operator can be placed high or low on the glass.  

All Blink blinds are certified by Best for Kids and by Parents for Window Blind Safety organizations to be safe for the entire family, due to their cordless operators. The 7/8" Custom blinds are available in multiple low-E options and six colors: white, tan, espresso, slate gray, sand and silver moon.  

What the Judges Say

  • ODL's products are elegant and offer superior operation. 

  • The internal mini blinds in a 7/8-inch airspace is ideal. 

  • I love the clean look of the interior blinds and door with cordless functionality, and how you can achieve a full glass view when desired without looking through blinds.
