Sun-X Cap & Rack Rollers have an external ratchet mechanism with a cord-operated release pin, all enclosed within a brass cap at one end of the roller barrel.The blind pictured above is an example of our high standard of craftsmanship. Each blind is individually crafted to exacting standards and original patterns. Designed specifically for large, 'long drop' windows, Cap and Rack roller blinds provide total control when raising the blind. The ratchet release mechanism ensures that the operator is able to control the speed at which the cover is raised, thereby reducing the possibility of 'running off' and avoiding unsightly fraying of the fabric edges.

Sun-X Cap & Rack Roller Blinds are now installed using brass brackets as standard (unless otherwise specified) and can be installed singly or, if required, as a double blind system to provide a variable means of maintaining appropriate lux levels.

Used in conjunction with Sun-X UV Filters, Sun-X Cap & Rack Roller Blinds provide a complete barrier against fade and fibre degeneration

Frequently Asked Questions

I have very large windows - what can you do?

Not only do Sun-X manufacture extremely heavy-duty systems to cope with wide and/or tall windows, some of our fabrics are over three metres wide, reducing the need for either fabric joins, or light gaps where two or more blinds are butted together.

My conservatory/office is too hot - will blinds help?

Blinds are not the most effective solution to solar heat gain, as the heat has already entered the building. Most blind fabrics will absorb, rather than reflect heat, which will re-radiate into the room. Even materials with reflective backings will rarely have sufficient capacity to reflect a substantial amount of heat, especially back through sealed units in double glazing. Solar window film reflects heat at source, and is therefore much more efficient.

My windows are out of arm's reach - can you help?

Sun-X manufactures and installs a wide range of motorised systems, now including battery & solar powered ranges, avoiding the cost and invasive installation of electrical wiring.
