Tendersoften just specify 'Black-Out Blinds'. This can be standard office roller blinds fitted with blackout fabric.
They can also be specified to include side channels or guides, cassettes or fully framed cassette blackout roller blinds.
This is a more expensive product but provides full blackout. Fabric or brush edges to the top and bottom of the roller blind to minimise "Light Ingress". This type of blind is particularly useful in AV presentation suites and boardrooms.
Development of modern technology and environmentally focused office building projects contribute to the need for different shading. Recent project highlights include the following:
|Head Office and Boardroom for Portman Estates, London|
|Fabric 1||Front facing fabric is 3% screen fabric (offers privacy, natural daylight, glare protection and outward visibility).|
|Fabric 2||The rear facing fabric is 100% blackout.|
|Details||The blackout fabric roller blinds are fitted with RAL coated side channels to match the window mullions. As shown in the photograph
opposite, the side channels are invisible.
The side channels are bonded to the window mullions so they can be removed at a later date if necessary and do not affect the glazing warranty.
|Control||Radio wireless control via a high quality, silver finish wall switch.|
|Time||3 weeks from receipt of order to installation.|
