April 2019

Silent Gliss have introduced two new Roman Blind systems 2304 and 2305 which feature a powerful magnetic breakaway device bringing a new innovative solution to child safety.

Separating from the headrail when a weight of 6kg or above is applied to the chain and easily reattached by positioning the device at the end of the headrail allowing the magnets to reconnect, these new Roman Blinds are both elegant and compact.

Ideal if a longer chain of up to 60cm from the ground without the use of a chain retainer is required, system 2304 offers a gear ratio of 1:1 with a weight limit of 2kg whilst system 2305 offers a 1:4 gear ratio and 4kg weight limit. Both allow for a maximum drop of 3.4m.

Supplied with a metal chain as standard along with the option of having a white plastic chain, each system can be top or face fix using the same standard bracket and is also compatible with all Smart Fix brackets.

For total peace of mind the systems are complaint to EN 13120 and approved by Bureau Veritas to be used with both our rear cord breakaway devices as well as those by Silent Gliss.

Both systems are available as a standard chain operated blind and can be ordered using our 3 working day despatch Made to Measure service or as components. There is also the option to order complete roman blinds with a selection of Silent Gliss fabrics - please allow 4 to 5 weeks for the blinds to be despatched.

Making room for these new blind solutions, systems 2020 | 2120 | 2320 | 2330 have all now been discontinued.
