In recent years, roller shutters have become more and more popular with consumers because of their strong mobility, good shading performance and non-aging characteristics.
Want to know something about rolling curtains? Let us takes you to understand.
1： Classification of roller blinds
1: Classification by performance
(1) Sunlight roller fabric
The so-called sunshine fabric is a kind of pinhole formed on the fabric through the weaving process during the weaving process. Because it can penetrate part of the sun, it is also called landscape fabric.
Its main feature is that it can both transmit light and block ultraviolet rays. It is the first choice for office buildings and offices.
(2) Semi-opaque fabric
It is mainly between shading and sunlight fabric. Its light transmittance is better than that of sunlight fabric, and it can not completely block the sun. It can effectively block ultraviolet radiation.
(3) Full shading fabric
Mainly through coating processing, such as white coating, silver coating, etc. Or adopt double-sided color scraping coating. Make the fabric have full shading performance. It is suitable for places with strong sunlight, or environments that require complete blackout, such as bedrooms, video and audio rooms, etc.
2: Classification by fabric material
(1) Polyester filament
Because of its low production cost and wide use, this kind of fabric is widely used in household and engineering.
The style of the product is relatively simple. The fabric is mostly flat oxford cloth. The finishing process uses dyeing or scraping. There are also some printing products. No matter which process, the raw materials with high sun exposure must be used.
(2) Polyester staple fiber
The biggest feature of this kind of fabric is that it is close to nature, and the fabric is three-dimensional and full of changes. In particular, the use of some fancy yarns makes the fabric present various styles, which can more meet the needs of different consumers.
This category is a newly developed product in the market in recent years. On the basis of staple fabric, through the change of pattern, it enriches the variety of products and endows the roller shutter with more design sense and popular elements.
(4) Warp-knitted fabric, engineering yarn, worn-out yarn, etc
This category is still a niche product in the market, but with the continuous improvement of technology, there will be a wide range of market demand in the future.
2： Fabric door of commonly used roller shutter
With the update of finishing equipment and technology after coating, the door width of roller shutter fabric has developed from the conventional narrow door width to the current 280CM and 300CM, which makes the fabric more flexible in cutting, greatly reducing the loss of fabric and saving costs.
3： Main technical indexes of roller shutter fabric
1: Flatness, which is the most basic requirement of roller shutter fabric. If the flatness is not good, the fabric loss will be large.
2: Thickness, especially the edge mean difference of the coating thickness.
3: Light fastness. Because the roller shutter is usually hung in a place with plenty of sunshine, pay attention to the use of high-sunlight dyes during the dyeing and printing process.
4: The fastness of the foaming coating, especially the peeling or breaking phenomenon.
5: Weaving defects of fabric. Because of the particularity of the roller shutter, the quality of the fabric is required to be strictly controlled.
6: Color fastness, weight, door width, etc. are routine requirements, and the quality shall be strictly controlled.
4： Market demand and distribution of roller shutter
The main function of the roller shutter is to block light and prevent sun. Therefore, there will be a large demand in tropical areas or high-sunshine areas.
