PVC Free Roller Blind Solutions for Science Laboratories
Description

Thermo Block Roller Blinds are designed to provide light blocking solution science labs and research facilities where darkness is required. The roller blind also includes thermal insulating properties.

Thermo Block fabrics are made from Trevira CS Polyester which is PVC free and is fire retardant. An acrylic foam backing is applied adding its insulating qualities.

While the fabric blocks 100% of light, some light will enter around the sides of the blind. Where complete darkness is required, a Total Black Out System is available, featuring side channels and a pelmet cassette to prevent light leakage.
