REEF Blind is an economical and effective way to shade rooflights
REEF is a manually operated shading system for horizontal or sloping glazing, running on tension cables with the fabric stacking in neat folds when the blind is retracted. When the blind is extended horizontally the fabric lies in gentle curves which is more aesthetic than a roller blind.
The size of the curves (and the height of the stack) are governed by the distance between the gliders. A typical distance between gliders is 50 cms which would give a stack height of approximately 25 cms.
FABRICS for REEF Blinds are available for glare control or room darkening. Glare control fabrics can have varying degrees of openness, to allow a view outside and may also be translucent, so that the need for artificial lighting is reduced. Room darkening fabrics are opaque. Alternatively, suitable curtain fabrics can be used where aesthetics are important, for example to co-ordinate a colour scheme.
All fabrics are flame retardant and have insulating properties which help significantly in achieving energy savings. Technical data is available.
