R&R Ropaco Blinds

Hangings

The actual blinds of the ROPACO system consist of a top box (with exception of type F) which includes the winding and turning mechanisms as well as the hangings.
The winding mechanism is based on a continuous, precisely extruded aluminium shaft which shifts axially during the winding process. This ensures a steady running of the blinds.
The hangings consist of 15mm aluminium slats, coated and free from fogging, with outstanding reflectance properties. The 0.2mm wide slats are held and turned by a first-class ladder cord.

IGU

The reflective properties of the slats used in the ROPACO systems play a crucial role for the overall quality of the sun protection system. The slat must guarantee a high degree of reflection, especially when it is installed inside the IG unit. If this were not the case, both hangings and the glass pane would strongly heat up. For this reason it is necessary to ensure that only materials with extremely high reflective properties are used, even for standard slats.
Colour 2901 – silver (standard) – reaches reflectance values up to 68 % in the visual sector. Colour 2902 – white glossy – even reaches 81 %.

Advantages

Due to the assembly of ROPACO sun protection systems inside IG units, the blinds do not provide any habitats to micro-organisms or germs. The glass pane’s surface is smooth and, contrary to uncovered slats or textiles, easy to clean.
Accordingly, ROPACO sun protection systems are ideally suited for use in clean rooms, hospitals, laboratories and every other place with high standards in cleanliness and hygiene.
