Versatile tensioned fabric system without headbox for glazed facades, rooflights and atria. Options for internal or external application.Features and benefits:Fitted with a single barrel tension system which produces smooth, quiet travel.Built around a unique spring mechanism which constantly holds fabric flat and adapts to the surrounding environment.Relieving rollers allow the blinds to follow the direction of the glass, in any angle or direction.Can be applied to glazing of any scale or shape.Reliable and robust.TESS 100:Manufactured to overcome the challenges of curved glazing.Rectangular in shape.Ultra-thin cables maintain fabric tension.No guides required.Discrete design.TESS 101:Manufactured to cover 90° triangles and corners.Shaped like a right-angled triangle.Appropriate for flat or curved surfaces.No guides required.TESS 102:Manufactured for special or uneven shapes, including domes and tapered windows.Trapezoidal in shape.An adaptable solution.No guides required.Ultra-thin cables maintain fabric tension.TESS 120:Used where tensioned fabric is required for lighter structures; designed to minimize the load imposed.Rectangular in shape.With aluminium guide rails for maximum stability and to retain the tension force of the blind.The weight of the system is distributed via multiple fixing points.TESS 140:Clean-cut design.Rectangular in shape.Designed to deliver reliability.Slim, 5 mm diameter wire guides and flexible brackets make it easy to design into the glazing surround for near invisibility.Suitable for both internal and external use.Installation:TESS 100, 101 and 102: Top or back of the window.TESS 120 and 140: Top, back or side of the window.CE marked.Material:Relieving rollers: Aluminium.Weight (excluding fabric):TESS 100, 101 and 102: 7.5 kg (approximately).TESS 120: 9 kg (approximately).TESS 140: 9.5 kg (approximately).Fabric area:TESS 100: Maximum fabric area of ≤16 m².TESS 101: Maximum fabric area of ≤9 m².TESS 102: Maximum fabric area of ≤16 m².
