Industrial roller blinds and armoured aprons
Our spring-loaded roller blinds are designed for environments where space restrictions prevent the use of full concertina covers or steel telescopic covers. The roller unit is robustly made in steel, with a heavy-duty return spring and maintenance-free nylon end bushes or sealed bearings allowing rotation. Roller blinds can be supplied open or enclosed within a steel box. Blinds are available in fabric for most applications or in anodized aluminium strips. Open or boxed, roller blinds can be mounted horizontally, vertically or cross-slide and are highly resistant to wear.
We recommend the use of armoured aprons or blinds to protect against very hot swarf or heavy swarf loads and for high-pressure coolant systems. They can be supplied in flat form or fitted to an open or boxed roller blind. Armoured aprons are supplied in anodized aluminium strips that are joined with polyurethane hinges or in mild or stainless steel strips riveted to polyurethane conveyor material.
