Side channels

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.

GUIDE SYSTEM:
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
