When solar control is required in horizontal or near-horizontal applications, our skylight blind systems are a dependable solution.
Providing efficient control whilst retaining the benefits of natural light, skylight blinds also give a semi or total visual barrier for privacy and security.
Available in a wide range of materials with differing levels of reflectance, light and heat can be controlled to achieve optimum working conditions, including prevention of glare on computer screens.
The sunscreen fabrics used for these blinds vary in colour and ‘openness’, with corresponding degrees of reflection, absorption, dispersion or visual transparency. Metallic backings are available for maximum reflection, and total blackout can also be achieved with appropriate materials and side guiding channels.
Operation is straightforward, via manual or electronic control. Hand-held remote controls or wall switches offer maximum convenience, with potential to operate blinds individually or simultaneously. Blind control can also be incorporated into a BMS (Building Maintenance System) for maximum responsiveness to light levels and times of day.
Enviroscreen designs, manufactures and installs all types of skylight blind systems, including the largest systems in the world. Our expertise enables us to accommodate all bespoke requirements and our highly-trained fitting team rises to the most challenging of installation circumstances.
Dual Function Skylight Rollers
Dual function roller systems comprise one motorised fabric roller which synchronizes the fabric drawing action with movement of the tensioning wires via pulleys to enable fabric to be held taut.
High Performance Fabrics
Air flow is a prime consideration for shades where skylights also serve for ventilation. High performing breathable fabrics facilitate ease of operation by preventing issues triggered by air pressure.
Bespoke Designed Supportwork
The architectural nature of atriums often demands attention from our CAD design and engineering departments to produce bespoke supportwork and bracketry that complements the overall scheme.
Consultation with Enviroscreen at the early design stages of a project helps to eliminate problems later on. Experience proves that well-planned projects produce solutions of optimum value and performance.
Barrel Vault Skylights
The challenges that curved skylights present in the design of appropriate shading are often rewarded if well considered. Attention to every detail of the system will not only create effective shading but convey prestige.
Total Solar Solutions
In order to receive the maximum return on investment all factors influencing solar gain reduction, glare control and levels of natural light required must receive detailed attention in order to produce the optimum solution.
Facetted Glass Atria
Where glass within atria is facetted and the shading system desired has to draw in close alignment to it, we offer a specific system consisting of multiple rollers that guide the fabric around each facet.
