Fabric Tension Systems

picto_MT_horizontal_blindFabric Tension Systems create more free space near the building and are most often seen on restaurant or hotel terraces. They protect from strong sunlight as well as from the rain.

Due to its larger size, it is important that the fabric attached to the straps on the load bar always remain taut.  It is therefore required to install a motor at each extremity of the blind where one will ensure continuous tension on the fabric.

This system can very well be installed on larger size vertical blinds also
