In modern public and commercial buildings with large glass areas in windows and roofs it is essential that both light and heat can be controlled, in order to create an ideal working environment. Pleated blinds can fit perfectly into sloped, triangular and trapezoidal shaped openings so even with complex window and roof designs, where other systems may not be suitable, pleated blinds can provide an elegant yet robust and efficient solar shading solution.
The Opal Olympian 1300 pleated blind system has been specifically developed to incorporate features and functions suitable for most applications in commercial buildings. A range of flexible control systems are available including manual operation with cord, chain, manual and crank options with electric operation using low voltage 24v motors. Electrically operated blinds also have the option for switch control, infrared control and automated systems with solar detectors and timers for controlling blinds in groups or centrally.
The growing popularity of pleated blinds in commercial buildings has lead to a significant development in the range of high performance fabrics. The pleated fabric range from Opal includes fabrics which can offer excellent sunscreening and light regulating properties and have varying degrees of transparency. The transparent and semi-transparent fabrics offer high reflection values to reduce heat and glare and have the benefit of a view outside, whereas the non-transparent fabrics provide superior levels of solar protection creating an ideal environment for computer use.
As with all fabric ranges from Opal our pleated fabrics are fire retardant to BS5867:Part 2, Type B. Fabrics available with solar reflective properties. Anti-bacterial properties available on certain ranges.For More Information Please View the Project Brochure Below
