Multistop Channel Blinds

Looking for sun, wind control or a bit of privacy, the Multistop system would by far be the easiest of all the blind systems to open and close quickly. Spring loaded at the top of the blinds, just pull down the bar to the required height and that’s it, it stays of there. Release and it will retract, as easy as that.

Canvas or shade mesh are the best fabrics to use in the Multistop blind system. With a large range of colour and styles, we are sure to be able to find design to suit your individual fashion.

The side channels are fully powder coated to a colour of your choice, as well as the bottom bar. We can also install pelmets or hoods colour coded to suit if the fabric is going to be sitting in the sun for ex tented periods of time. The Multistop blind is not for everyone but overall, an absolute winner.

Channel X Blinds

The side channel is designed with indented flutes for extra strength as well as making it user friendly on round posts. It now blends in with the current style veranda posts that are lined and fluted. The profile also allows it to be used as a stand alone OR removable post.

Uniquely designed with ‘T’ slots to allow two rubber seals (or felt strip) to slide in, the bottom bar offers a softer touch between the ground and the bar and also helps keep out the elements.

A standard 9mm opening at the top of the bar suits 6mm Rope, Keder or Hard Spline, making production faster and more cost effective. There is also ample blank space in the profile, allowing extra weight to be added in the case of motorization of the blind. Can be done in mesh or clear.
