Furthermore, do aluminum blinds contain lead?
The CPSC did not find lead in aluminum (metal) mini blinds. Most vertical blinds (those with slats running from top to bottom) are manufactured in the U.S. and do not contain lead.
Secondly, are aluminum blinds good? Aluminum blinds can be very durable, especially if you purchase blinds of good quality. In addition, they are resistant to moisture, making them a good choice for areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Some manufacturers also make their aluminum slats from up to 95% recycled metal, which is a great use of resources.
Also to know is, are blinds toxic?
The manufacturing of PVC blinds and other PVC products creates massive amounts of toxic byproducts. Greenpeace tested many vinyl products, among them PVC blinds, which revealed the presence of hydrochloric acid, vinyl chloride, mercury, cadmium, lead and an extremely dangerous carcinogen, dioxin.
Are aluminum or vinyl mini blinds better?
Aluminum blinds are strong and do not break as easily as vinyl blinds. Vinyl blinds, however, flex easier and do not tend to dent or crease. Vinyl blinds are also easier to clean than aluminum. Aluminum blinds are easier to repair than vinyl blinds; usually when vinyl blinds break, they are simply discarded.
