SafeGuard RL

A system capable of room darkening to a blackout level or a soft light filtering finish giving different percentages of light transmission depending on your requirements and use.

Separating itself from similar alternatives the SafeGuard RL offers two things to set it apart. Firstly, the edges of the fabric are securely gripped along their entire length within the side channel and secondly, because the fabric edge is retained, the side channels can be ultra-slim. In fact, at only 35mm, the channels are at least 40% smaller than most blackout blind systems on the market, meaning you get a very discreet appearance, and more daylight when the blinds are open and furthermore there are no visible support wires.

The advantages of the SafeGuard RL are not limited to blackout blinds. Most sun screening or shading fabrics can also be used and have the benefit of the fabric being locked into the side channels.

This feature comes into its own on horizontal or inclined applications, such as roof-lights and atrium, helping to keep fabric taut and reduce sagging.

Our motorised version is compatible to all home automation systems such as Lutron, Lonone, Control4, Crestron and TaHoma to mention a few so when you need a versatile and reliable daylight control system with numerous options and applications, get a grip with SafeGuard RL.

Excellent service from the start of the consultation process to the installation. I chose them upon recommendation from my very discerning building contractor who has electrically controlled Aquarius blinds and awnings installed in his own house. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! The Aquarius team are as friendly as they are professional, which made the whole process enjoyable, straightforward and very rewarding. The blinds all look superb and I can’t recommend Aquarius Blinds enough.
