Sunscreen & Light Filtering Roller Blinds

Sunscreen & Light Filtering Roller Blinds

The simple elegance of Roller Blinds is compatible with most contemporary architectural styles and work environments. Roller Blinds also support building-wide design consistency with the ability to specify the most appropriate fabric type for each space.

For rooms and areas where sun and bright natural light have the potential to interfere with occupant comfort, Luxaflex® Sunscreen or Light Filtering Roller Blinds are a practical and aesthetically-pleasing choice.

Benefits

  • Sunscreen fabrics have an open weave that softens bright light, screens UV and minimises heat gain. Some sunscreen fabrics are see-through, so room occupants can still enjoy the view.
  • Light filtering fabrics are available in a range of opacities, colours and textures. They allow natural light to enter the room but maintain privacy.
  • For appropriate shading around the clock, windows can be fitted with dual rollers, for example, a combination of Sunscreen and Blockout.
  • Automation can be integrated into building management systems and applied to single shades or groups of shades with remote control or wall-switch controls.

Fabrics

Light Filtering fabrics are Translucent. They filter natural light and provide privacy. This combination of benefits is useful when spaces are at ground level or in close proximity to other buildings. Woven Sunscreen fabrics provide light and heat control that’s based on the fabric's openness factor and colour. The most open weaves allow occupants to see the view.
