Clerkenwell, London

Can you make us a commercial roller blind that is sloping, motorised and 26 square metres? That was the request made by PCMS Limited for their Clerkenwell project.

When they needed shading for sloping glazing that is 3.5m wide and up to 7.5m drop, PCMS turned to SHY as our manufacturing capability can accommodate virtually any size and angle of window.

SHY doesn't just make commercial roller blind systems, we offer a complete service, from technical assistance through to design, manufacture and testing.

Proof positive of this service was an interesting commercial office job in London, fitted by SHY’s distributor, PCMS Ltd with the help of installation expert BBD Ltd.

With sloping glazing, the largest of which was 3.5m wide and up to 7.5m drop SHY proposed their Obscura fabric tension system (FTS).

The FTS cleverly adjusts the tension in the fabric during its travel, and when the blind is stopped or fully deployed the motors gently turn in opposite directions to remove any sag.

Tensioned Obscura blinds of this size need a very strong and structurally stable fabric and SHY’s S150 fibreglass screen fabric, in white, with a 5% openness and a light transmittance (Tv) of just 15% was specified at this site.
