What window brands offer "between the glass" blinds?

Not sure if the blinds between the glass are in the sealed IGU though. The salesperson I bought it from says it is, but I haven't verified that.
I think was HomeSealed was referencing is that the blinds are not in the sealed IGU.

The blinds are in the pseudo integrated storm panel.

Unless Pella has a brand new product that I've never seen, your salesman is wrong or you are misunderstanding him. As WoW and myself have described, the blinds are in an unsealed, accessible space. It is this space that I'm referencing that cannot have argon for obvious reasons. My other comment was referencing alternative brands that do have blinds in the sealed space such as Gorell and Plygem. They do not offer argon in these units... I don't believe other manufacturers do either, but I could be wrong.

I just asked Pella customer service and you're right the blinds are not in a sealed IGU. There is argon between the double panes though.

I still have the voicemail from the salesman I bought the window from and he does say that it is triple pane. Kind of "slippery" of him.

I'm meeting with a salesperson from Sunrise later today about a full frame replacement of my bay window. The other brands I have looked into with blinds between the glass - gorell, eagle by anderson, polaris, etc - don't offer color choices I like for the blinds.

It is technically triple pane, just not a triple pane sealed IGU... I do agree though, they should do a better job of explaining that. The other choices that you have/are looking at are pretty good. Hopefully one of them will have the options combo that you are looking for.
