Blockout

The simple elegance of rollershades is compatible with most contemporary architectural styles and white-collar work environments. Rollershades also support building-wide design unity, because you can specify the most appropriate fabric for each space.

For offices and shared areas that need maximum light control - for privacy, security or functionality - Luxaflex blockout rollershades are a practical and aesthetically-pleasing choice. For hotel bedrooms, shades can be fitted with side channels to create complete darkness.

Benefits:

  • Blockout fabric has a special backing that ensures light cannot travel through the rollershade. This type of rollershade fabric also has a thermal rating, which helps with heat control.
  • For appropriate shading around the clock, windows can be fitted with dual rollers. For example: one blockout, one sunscreen.
  • Automation can be integrated into building management systems and applied to single shades or groups of shades, with remote control or wall-switch controls.
  • Specialty shapes are available to shade non-standard windows and doors.

Fabrics

Choose a blockout fabric if you want darkness and/or privacy in an office or special purpose area, such as a media room. We offer a wide range of neutral colours and textures.  Some fabrics are fire retardant.

Roller Configurations

Single roller sets

Roller sets that hold a single shade are ideal for commercial and hospitality environments that require just one form of shading - sunshade, sun filter or blockout. Sets can be specified according to the width of glass you need to cover and special requirements, such as individual control, best positions for control chains and up/down configurations for sliding doors. All single roller sets can be automated, except spring roll-up sets. Our fabric finder can help you to choose the optimum fabric for your rollershades.

Operating Systems

Luxaflex rollershades can be manually operated with a chain drive or chainless spring motor. They can be automated using the wireless Q-motion system or a traditional hard-wired system. Child safety devices can be fitted to manual chain-drive blinds.

Automation

Automation

Luxaflex Rollershades can be automated, so you can raise or lower your window coverings with the touch of a button. There are two ways to do this. The first way is by using traditional hard-wired automation with a remote control or wall switch. The second way is by using Q-motion wireless automation, which uses ordinary ‘D’ batteries within the roller tube. Shades can be raised and lowered using a remote control or with an iPhone or iPad application.

Chains Cords & Locks

Chains Cords & Locks

Manual control options include the classic standard chain drive or a chainless spring motor.Easy to operate, chain drive allows you to raise and lower your blinds using a chain from either side and can be face fitted or in-reveal mounted. Chains are available in colours and metal options. Child safety is a critical issue that we have addressed with specific safety devices, such as child safe tensioner devices to eliminate the risk of strangulation on cords. Please talk to your Luxaflex consultant about ways to make rollershades safe for young children.
