    At Bloc we've always had a straightforward approach. Equipped with fresh eyes and curious minds we realised that there was immense potential for improvement in the solar shade sector. It’s what prompted our invention of revolutionary, patented bloc-out blind technology. It was the impetus for our Safe-by-Design adjustment wand that empowers elderly people with the ability to easily control light levels, while protecting the young and vulnerable by eradicating the risk posed by dangling cord adjusters. We launched a PPE strategy, transitioning to manufacture face shields within days of the first signs of Covid-19, since evolving to become expert designers and volume manufacturers of healthcare solutions. And this is just one more way we’ve turned our engineering and design experience into a meaningful, positive outcome
