RESSTENDE offers a wide choice of different shape and sizes of extruded aluminium side channels as well as a selection of steel bars and cables to guide the fabric and/or bottom rail. The choice of the most suitable guide system should be based upon the type and size of the blind requested.
Unguided fabric – the fabric hangs free, only the bottom rail runs inside the side channel to restrict its movement and ensure that the blind hangs correctly:
Series L1 – stainless steel cable guides
Series L3 – aluminum side channels
Guided fabric – double purpose extruded aluminum side channels: to withhold the fabric and to close the lateral gaps (hence reducing light infiltration for blackout systems).
Series B – fabric with plastic press-studs down each side
Series R – horizontal steel rods inserted in welded pockets in the fabric
Series Z –lateral zip welded to the fabric
STAINLESS STEEL CABLE GUIDE
The standard colours are white (powder coated), anodised silver, or black. Powder coating in any RAL colour is available upon request.
NB: With the G80 side channel the use of reinforced fabric is obligatory. For outdoor installations, reinforcement of the fabric may also be requested. The horizontal reinforcement rods are in galvanized steel, Ø 4.5 mm, and are inserted in welded pockets roughly every 70-80 cm.
