This apartment building had over 80 Helioscreen External Blinds installed, providing shade from the bright glare, and also keeping the apartments cooler in summer. Each blind had a headbox to protect the motors/fabric. Helio 86 ‘Coal’ colour fabric was used to allow excellent visibility and protection from glare at the same time. This fabric is extremely popular for such external applications as it is very weather resistant, mould treated and easy to clean. Each blind was top fixed into the roof and had guide wires stabilizing the blinds – these guide wires were bottom fixed. Manual crank operation was chosen, with detachable crank handles for each unit.
