I also received the following information from our Interiors Department -

I would recommend the use of solar shades rather than metal blinds. Metal 1" 
blinds are very cost-effective, but once they are damaged or bent, it's likely 
considered "normal wear and tear" and not under warranty for replacement. The 
solar shades are a nylon (or similar) fabric with a mechanism installed at the 
top of the window with either a pull chain or a wireless feature that rolls the 
fabric into a hidden housing that can be painted to match the walls. We specify 
them in most TCU projects. Mechosystems is one brand that I've had good luck

Subject: [swacuho] Ping Pong Tables and Mini-blinds

We have ping pong tables in a lot of our buildings and many of them have 
windows with mini-blinds nearby.
As a result, the mini-blinds are getting bent and broken from the ping pong.

What solutions have your developed to prevent the blinds from being damaged?
Have you used any other kind of blinds other than traditional metal blinds?

Thanks for your input,
