Abstract

Previous work gave rise to a prototype roller blind comprising: two layers of heat reflecting material, brush nylon top seals, magnetic bottom seals, and EPDM soft rubber side seals which may be open and closed to allow the free movement of the blind. The prototype was submitted to thermal transmittance testing in various configurations and the results indicated that a double layer blind is only marginally more effective than a single layer blind within the sealing system. A patent has been filed on both the single and double layer sealing systems. Production of the single layer blind is expected soon.
