The basis of the self-supporting blinds are guide rails, on which the entire weight of the armour lies. The representatives of this special design of exterior blinds are the BRAVO and STS self-supporting blinds. All types and sizes of slats can be used for the self-supporting blinds, except for Cetta 50. An insect mesh can also be integrated into them.
Bravo is a self-supporting blind with a blind roll outside the channel and which has a round box design. With BRAVO, the box is always only in the recognized design, which means that it is visible on the facade of the house. A foot for connection to the supporting rails is located on the sides of the boxes. BRAVO blinds are designed for installation in smaller construction openings - thanks to a special hanger and eccentric channel mounting, the height of the box is 40 mm lower than the standard design.
For the STS blind, the upper profile is attached to the guide rails together with the slat package by means of a special sleeve. The box has an angular design and can be made in two variants – under-plaster or recognized. The under-plaster variant means that the box is "hidden" under facade and when the blind is fully retracted into the box, this blind is not visible at all. This variant of design must be taken into account already during the implementation of the construction project. In the under-plaster version, the STS blind box can be provided with 10 mm thick hardened polystyrene from the front and back at the same time. The box is visible for the recognized variant.
