About This Product
Sunfilter roller blinds are designed to minimize heat and glare whilst maintaining your view when looking through the blind. This is achieved by using a fabric that has an open weave, simply it is a fabric made of polyester and coated with polymer that has small aperture’s in it that let some but not all light and heat through. The fabric we use at Blinds and Curtains Online is 5% open, this means only five percent of the Solar radiation penetrates through the fabric.
Sunfilter fabric comes in a range of colours, that have slightly different solar properties, for example:
- Crystal – this reflects more heat and glare but visibility is reduced
- Raven – this absorbs more heat but is easier to see through
So when deciding on colour it is not only your décor that it important to match but also hoe the colour helps to reduce heat and glare whilst maintaining your view.
Operation is simple with a chain used to lift or lower the fabric, options of rolling the fabric off the back to get it close to the glass for better insulation or off the front to avoid door and window hardware are available.
