When we started designing our blinds, we wanted to go with the octagon shape so you could have a 360 degree view without blind spots. This also helped the blind blend in better than square blinds because it removes the vertical lines and 90 degree corners.
While developing the design of this blind, we decided that the most important feature was making the blind quieter, warmer and scent proof. We have designed the floor with a 1 1/2″ thick welded aluminum structure laminated with additional materials and zero mechanical fasteners that ensures no noise will be made while moving around the blind. In the end this gives you a 2 1/4″ thick single piece floor.
The walls begin with welded aluminum studs, framed in windows, fiberglass exterior with EPS styrofoam insulation and wood substrate all laminated to form a single piece wall. This allows for warmer interiors and provides better sound dampening and superior scent control.
The roof is designed using an arch running in each direction to guarantee superior rain and snow run off, this also follows the theme of no vertical lines allowing the blind to blend into nature more effectively.
