Coulisse brings new top screens

As an addition to its existing screen offering Coulisse will gradually be launching a range of new screens in 2017. Besides excellent functional properties, the new screens stand out for their decorative nature. The design approach in developing these new screens gives a new decorative dimension to ‘screen’ as a fabric, which makes them suitable for both the residential and the contract market, ensuring a modern and architectural look, from the inside as well as outside. The new screens are all available in a width of 300 cm, enabling the building of wider window constructions and saving waste when used for smaller windows.

The wide range of soft and white tones in the collection, contribute to the feeling of peace and harmony. With this new collection, Coulisse responds to the trend in the market centered around ever-softer color tones and tactile materials.

Affordable and keen motorization with the new Coulisse Pull Motor

The Coulisse pull motor is a clever step-in model that offers the advantages of motorization, whilst taking away all complexity of regular motorization. The one-time programming is done by a simple push of the button to set three desired upper-, bottom- and in-between-stop position. Meaning no hassles with on/off-switches and program-modes etc. The installation is similar to a chain mechanism ensuring install conveniences and time savings. For the wireless operation of the blind no separate batteries, power supply cables and remote control are needed, which leads to significant cost savings and an attractive purchasing price for those who prefer child-safe motorization.

Coulisse introduces the new child-safe Cordless Spring System

The child-safe Cordless spring roller system is a new solution, characterized by the ease of installation that matches the simplicity of a chain system. The spring tension will be set globally at the factory in advance. A transport locker keeps the previously adjusted tension on the system until the moment of installation. After installation, further fine-tuning can be done with the adjusting wheel. The blind can be controlled through the bottom bar by hand. It can slide up and down and be stopped at any height, having a slight backspacing. The spring mechanism ensures a smooth rolling of the blind. This roller blind has no mounting profile, no operation cords or chains, giving it a clean and neat look and making it an affordable child-safe solution.
