The lowdown on Reflex-Rol MAXI Solar Shading Systems

  • 22 Feb 2023

‘Blinds’ are out and ‘Solar Shading’ is in! With the advance of Solar Shading fabrics, g-values (total energy penetration degrees) of less than 20% are now achievable. This is almost (within a few percent) on a par with external shading, but without the maintenance issues. Solar shading has become highly technical and there really is no ‘off the shelf’ solution or a ‘one fits all’ scenario. The Reflex-Rol MAXI solar shading system is ideally suited for buildings with overheating and glare issues.

Such examples include…

– office environments
– large glazed areas
– hospitals
– schools
– private and public buildings.

The clients Reflex-Rol serve are architectural, interior design, construction planning, building management, health & safety professionals and residential. The principle which underpins its service policy is best professional practice. Best practice in solar control technology means supplying product and technical support of the highest standard and levels of professional competence.


Mermet fabrics

Reflex-Rol MAXI systems, together with Mermet fabrics, provide a technically advanced, elegant solution to solar heat and glare control. 

They are ideal for virtually any application, indoor or outdoor, small or large blinds. This is due to the functionality of the systems and the extensive range of fabric textures and colours available. 

Horizontal, vertical, inclined, shaped, Reflex-Rol has a solution for any window. Solutions are available in a wide range of headbox sizes, with a variety of side guides and bottom bars also available. 

Your choice

Hardware is available as standard in white or aluminium, or perhaps have it powder coated to a RAL colour of your choice?

All blinds include an invisible opening headbox for rear ventilation on the window side. The headbox serves as a stop to limit the upper position of the blinds, as well as protection when the blinds are not in use.

Mermet coated fibreglass fabrics are suitable for solar shading, sound control and the provision of tensile structures such as canopies, stretched ceilings and wall panels. 

Ideal for both internal and external use, Mermet fabrics are ideal for digital printing. This means pictures, corporate logos and such can be printed onto the fabric before it is made into the final product. This could be a blind, stretched ceiling or anything else you wish.

Mermet fabrics also meet the BS476, Part 6, Class O fire rating, making them particularly suitable for use in schools, hospitals or other public areas and buildings.

Reflex-Rol has been providing shading solutions to the UK market since 1983. Contact today to see how the company can help you – or [email protected].
