Caribbean Blinds Shows Solar Shading At Ecobuild

Caribbean Blinds UK has announced that it will be exhibiting its solar shading portfolio at Ecobuild. The company's products have create safe, comfortable and energy efficient buildings across the UK by limiting solar gain in the summer and allowing it in the winter. The system controls light levels, reduces glare, improves visual comfort and provides privacy but maintaining the view and connection with the outside world.

At the show, Caribbean will be launching its new and revised range of contract focussed products which includes folding arm awnings, window canopies, exterior screens and external blinds. The Antiguan Zipscreen will be featured at the company Ecobuild stand. The product is an external screen which mounts directly in front of a window and affords solar gain prevention as it stops the sun's energy before it reaches the glass, still maintaining visibility towards the outside and allowing diffused natural daylight through.

The key feature is the zip welded to the edge of the fabric which locates within an extruded PVC channel in the side guide, keeping the fabric locked in place at every position. This renders the screen wind-proof, suitable for exposed locations and ensures their is no light penetration between the fabric and side guide.

It also acts as an additional benefit as an insect screen. Caribbean will also be showcasing its range of Sattler screen fabrics which are PVC and odour free, with all the benefits of a typical screen fabric including flame retardancy, glare reduction and visibility through. Also on display will be its newest wire guided screen, Dominica, featured on the PassivHaus dwelling, details of which will be distributed at the show.
