Both the R56 and the R57 roller blinds are the ultimate in choice for the shading requirements for sloping or horizontal roof windows. With heavy duty componentry and a powerful spring action to the fabric roller, these blinds may be confidently specified for awkward or inaccessible locations. The electric motor removes the common issues associated with controlling the unit in these areas and solves the problem of unauthorised use. It can be supplied with a number of remote or group control options including RF and infrared.
