Clutch-operated lifting system is standard; motorization is an optional add-on.
Fascias and headboxes are available in various sizes.
Rollstar‚™ roll shades are compact when opened (drawn up). Since the fabric rolls up, the shade does not require the "stacking space" of a traditional folding shade. When the shade is down, the deployed fabric is smooth and uncluttered, providing simple and elegant sun protection and privacy. During the day, the solar-screen fabrics allow a clear view through the window, while blocking the view into the building from outside. In the evening, when the source of light is inside, additional window treatments such as draperies might be needed to provide night-time privacy.
The simple, uncluttered look of this product, its functional advantages, and its cost effectiveness, combined with Castec's superior parts and craftsmanship, make it extremely popular.
Rollstar roll shades can be made for window openings up to 240" wide. If complete blackout is required, the shade can be made in blackout fabric with side and bottom channels and a headbox or fascia.
Note: In situations where the ratio of shade height to width is greater than 3 to 1, a Rollstar‚™ roll shade may not be the right choice. Beyond this ratio, roll shades tend to "track" from side to side as they roll up and down. This is unavoidable. In these situations, a Sunstar‚™ folding shade is an attractive and effective alternative.
