Sunscreen is a high performance fabric with many technical attributes. It cuts around 95% of the sun's UV (ultraviolet) and IR (infrared) light. UV is responsible for fading fabrics whilst IR creates heat build up.
Sunscreen roller blinds significantly reduce the sun's glare whilst still allowing light through. The effect is similar to putting on a pair of sunglasses. The fabric has an open weave design that allows a view out whilst still providing privacy. Sunscreen blinds are sometimes referred to as one way blinds.
Sunscreen blinds are ideal for south-facing rooms where protection from the sun’s heat and glare is required. They are often used in museums and galleries to protect artwork. They are also ideal for offices and home studies as they help cut reflections on computer screens.
Our sunscreen rollers are hand made and come with a metal chain control in a chrome, gold or nickel finish. They are made with an aluminium bottom bar in a brushed or gloss white finish, or a fabric covered bottom bar. They also come with a position stop device for the chain control which stops the blind from rolling past the desired point.
For child safety, our roller blinds are supplied with a chain safety link and a chain tidy.
All our roller blind fabrics are cut using ultrasonic cutters rather than a conventional blade. This results in a superb edge seal to the fabric which prevents fraying. The cut is extremely accurate and no other cutting methods can compare to ultrasonic technology.
