SmartShade® Blind Fabric
SmartShade® is a unique dual fabric cover for roller blinds, comprising opaque fabric (DeltaBlock® 30) to the top section of the blind and an anti-glare screen fabric (AlphaShade® 20) to the bottom section. It is designed to facilitate the use of large screens and interactive whiteboards, as the opaque fabric darkens the room at whiteboard level, increasing the effectiveness of the screen. The anti-glare screen fabric provides filtered natural light at desk level, reducing the need for electric lighting.
Both fabrics are PVC coated polyester with a reflective backing to reduce heat build up.
A further benefit is that SmartShade® enhances the learning environment by maintaining a view to the outside, whilst providing sufficient shading for whiteboards and projector screens inside.
The ratio of opaque to anti-glare screen fabric is entirely flexible and can be arranged to best suit window sizes and building elevations.
Suitable for use with ShadeTech Roller blinds and Lutron roller blinds.
