Further Fabrics Specification
Transmittance is the amount of light and heat transmitted beyond the fabric. The lower the amount, the greater the efficiency. Block/reflect is the amount of heat
and light that is blocked or reflected. The higher the amount, the greater the efficiency.
Absorption is the amount of heat and light absorbed in the fabric. The higher the amount, the lower the efficiency.
Ultraviolet protection illustrates how protective the fabric is against ultraviolet rays. The higher the amount, the greater the effectiveness.
Shading Co-efficiency is tested using a single 6mm glass glazing system with and without a blind to obtain solar heat gain measurements. The heat gained with a blind at the window is divided by the solar heat gained without a blind at the window, giving the Shading Co-Efficient. The lower the result the better the performance of the blind at blocking solar heat.
The Direct Fabrics R20B electric roller blind comes with a low voltage battery motor as standard. The white metal brackets have plastic covers, for face or top fixing, on 40mm grooved aluminium barrel. The barrel houses a 7.4v DC motor with electronic limit stops and a slow stop/start feature. The motor is controlled by a remote switch (not supplied) and can be charged by either a mains charger (one supplied per order) or solar panel. The fabric is locked into a groove in the barrel, and it features a white plastic bottom bar as standard. The bottom bar is fabric covered at the front.
There are 2 options for the blinds. Integrates with a standard charger which is included. 1A charge will last approximately 6 months
Or you can use the solar panel that can be connected to the blind so it is constantly charged and ready for use.
The handheld remote controls are available in 1, 6, or 16 channels depending on how many remotes you wish to use.
If you are purchasing more than 1 roller blind then select no remote required on all of the blinds except one, then on the last one assign your remote controls to it.
Wall mounted switches are available in 1 or 2 channel options.

As this will allow you to get a
rigid full length measurement.
The first step is to decide whether you want your curtains to hang from, whether you go for a curtain track or a curtain pole, both of which should be positioned 15cm (6 inches) above the window and extend 15-20cm (6-8 inches) either side.
You want to measure the total width of the track or pole, excluding the finials as these will not be covered. Then add a small amount on to allow for an overlap of your curtains.
When you are ready to measure, you have to make a decision about where you want the curtains to finish. The choices are whether to go to the sill, below the sill or to the floor. We suggest that:
- Sill length curtains finish 1.25cm (1/2 inch) above the sill.
- Curtains that fall below the sill should finish 15cm (6 inches) below or just above the radiator to stop heat loss.
- Floor length curtains finish 1 - 1.5cm (1/2 inch) from the floor (although you can create a shappy sheak look by having them puddled on the floor, but that is personal preference).
It is essential that you double and triple check your measurements as if you have measured incorrectly your curtains will not fit properly and if they are made to measure / custom drapes they cannot be changed.
Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the smallest size.
Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take thesmallest size.
We will take one cm (half an inch) off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size, This is to allow for fabric hemming.
Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm (3" - 6") whatever you think looks appropriate.
Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 15-20cm (6" - 8")
These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind. The amount of fabric required will be more than this finished size this is to allow for hemming.
