Manufacture and installation of 625 no. Multiveil T500 discrete top fix tracking and blackout curtains.

Project Date

September 2022

Project Location



Jensco (Nottingham) Ltd

Project Requirement:

This ambitious and prestigious project being constructed by Jensco (Nottingham) Ltd, consisted of a mixture of studios and flats - providing over 520 student bedrooms along with bright and open communal spaces. The client required a cost effective product which provided a high level of shading and comfort for the students and was also in-keeping with the contemporary building design. Custom Group Ltd were approached to provide alternative options that would achieve their requirements.

Implementation and Outcome:

The project is based within the city centre, which posed the challenge of permanent light and sound pollution which our products needed to be able to help eliminate. A particular challenge on this project was the limited reveal size which had to accommodate the chosen product. The product also needed to be durable to student life without being too costly.
We recommended our Multiveil T500 discrete top fixing track, combined with our blackout curtains in a modern, grey, flame retardant material. As the tracking required no brackets or additional fixings, it was perfectly suited to a restricted aperture, yet was strong enough to withstand the rigours of student usage.

We then manufactured and installed reversible, pre-pleated blackout curtains, which perfectly complemented the aesthetic of this modern, newly constructed building. These products fulfilled the sustainable ethic required by the client, assisting with energy efficiency as well keeping out the bright city lights at night. This was a challenging install with the large amount of flats and other areas requiring curtains. Due to the project being delayed at the earlier stages of construction, many trades were on site at the same time and this necessitated good co-operation and co-ordination between project management teams on site and at our Ilkeston HQ.
All work was completed in September, just as the students were arriving to first experience their chic, modern, yet sustainable new home.
