Roller Sunscreen Blinds are the popular choice in New Zealand due to the tremendous light control they offer. They deliver excellent protection against fading of furniture, flooring and appliances. Sunscreens are able to be motorised either hardwired or battery operation.
Sunscreen blinds benefits:
- Protect without blocking the natural light and permits outward visibility
- Perfect for daytime privacy, but needs a blockout installed as well or curtains for full night time privacy
- Filter UV rays (up to 97%), thus increasing interior comfort and reducing reflections and glare on televisions or computer screens
- Filter heat coming from the sun which in turn saves energy, reduces air conditioning costs and dramatically improves interior comfort by maintaining lower temperatures
With Sunscreen fabrics the higher the % rating the more ‘open’ the fabric is. A 10% fabric has more visibility through the blind than a 5 % fabric and a 2% fabric gives minimum visibility.
Fenescreen 2%, 5%, 10%
