Stability at sea
With the blinds partially or fully down, It is desirable to minimise movement whilst at sea. At Sola-Cure we provide a number of options for stability:
• Side rails – the bottom bar of the blind sits inside side rails mounted either side of the window. Side rails are available in aluminium and PVC
• Wire guides – taught vertical wires affixed to the cassette, travel through eyelets positioned at each end of the bottom bar. Wire guide basesare situated in a suitable location beneath the window
• Bottom bar hook system. The simplest option in which the bottom bar is supplied with location pegs in the end. These pegs are located into hooks that are fixed to the wall.
Through our innovative guide ,blinds are kept parallel to the window which limits movement in rough weather
