Manufactured as a complete unit, modular slow rise blinds are factory tensioned and tested so that they are ready to use by clicking them into pre-fitted clips. This system which incorporates a silent breaking unit has been universally acclaimed as an “innovative breakthrough” by installers.
Our “Hide Away” Cassette blind combines with our system 2 Modular “Slow Rise” blind which in practical terms means that a special blind need not be ordered. In addition, this System includes all the advantages of System 2 such as the tension adjusting screw in the end bracket.
This allows blinds with widths up to 2.5 metres to be used on certain installations with the added facility of extended drops up to 2.5 metres. An added feature of this versatile System is the specially designed injection moulded brackets which allow the blind to be installed on the top or face of a cabinet and then be simply clicked into position.
The cassette lid is positioned over the blind utilising the same bracket. A unique provision of this System is the cassette lid which can match the cabinet or individual blind length. For instance, a 3.75 metre cabinet would normally utilise two or three blinds to make up this width but this System needs only a single cassette to cover the cabinet.
Named for its functionality and design, the eco blind is both eco-friendly and our most inexpensive system. This System is the perfect solution for the cost conscious manufacturer. The blind utilises the same roller tube, bottom rail, handles and low emissivity reflective fabric as our System 2 night blind. However, it is not a modular unit and consequently is not pre-tensioned and tested.
The spring unit has been specifically designed so that it can be tensioned and engaged by a ratchet mechanism. Determined by the markings on the end of the spring unit, the blind can be placed into its brackets for testing to obtain the desired operational speed.
When this has been done, the blind should be taken out of its fixing brackets and the head should be rotated 180 degrees to take the blind out of ratchet mode. The blind should then be placed back into the brackets so that it can be operated under constant tension. This process is highly recommended to ensure a trouble free operation.
