Sunscreen rollers give your home the ultimate in light and temperature control without hindering on your view. Adding a sophisticated and elegant appearance whilst giving protection from the sun – which can fade fabrics, furniture and carpets.
Sunscreen Roller fabrics come in many colours and by combining plain and metallic threads give the roller a unique golden tinge. The sunscreen fabrics have an openness factor of approximately 6% that will blockout around 94% UV light.
Fabric widths come in a maximum of 3310mm so blinds that are over 3000mm in width may have a joining. Also the warranty may be limited for custom-made blinds over 3000mm in width. The standard size would be around 2500mm with a weight bearing of 500gsm makes it durable and holds its shape well through the years. Sunscreen Rollers are made with the environment in mind using design processes, materials and product that are environmentally friendly. The fabrics used on Sunscreen Rollers are made from flame retardant material so it will suit commercial purposes too.
Sunscreen fabrics can have a composition of 30% Polyester and 70% PVC and this makes for easy maintenance by wiping down with a soapy wet cloth. They are also made from fibre glass which is imperishable, non-flammable, antistatic, hypoallergenic, rot free and maintains its shape with minimum maintenance. You also have a choice in which way your roller will roll - front roll or back roll - this will determine how much gap will show between the window frame and the blind that could affecting privacy levels. Valances are also available to add a finishing touch to your Sunscreen Roller.
Methods of operation can vary from individual chain-driven mechanisms that are manual, automatic or electronic. There are also different mounting systems such as placing the blinds side by side so they both can be operated by a single control. Double mounted brackets allow two blinds on the same window, ideal for a sheer day Sunscreen Roller and then a blockout blind for night. Other options are to have the blind mounted in a cassette which is great for hiding away the mechanisms and lastly is to have an aluminium bar at the bottom of the blind, giving a more modern finish.
