New rooflight with integrated blind

Specialist integral blind manufacturer Hitech Blinds has launched its new aluminium rooflight system, which features a fully integrated pleated blind as standard.

Unveiled this month, the new HiTech TRL90 Rooflight, is suitable for new-build installation or retrofit across residential and commercial markets.

Manufactured in an ultra-slim aluminium profile, with mitre cut and mechanically cleated corners, the easy-to-install system is available in eight sizes of up to 1,200mm x 2,200mm. Standard colours are black, grey and white with any RAL colour available on special order.

With a choice of double-or triple glazed energy efficient options, the HiTech TRL90 Rooflight is supplied with a white pleated and fully retractable integrated blind as standard.

Supplied with a wall-mounted remote control, the motorised system allows users to retract and open the blind, which retracts behind a ceramic paint screen when fully opened.

Ian Woolley, sales director at HiTech Blinds, said: “We’ve developed the HiTech TR90 as a complete system, offering fully integrated motorised blinds as standard.

“The potential application of the product is massive across residential and commercial markets, including retrofit to suitable flat roofs.

“Rooflights are a growing sector of the market. Fully integrated and motorised blinds offer a unique point of differentiation within it.”

Also available for supply with a standard IGU only and without integrated blinds, selected stock sizes are supplied on a next day basis, with non-stock items available for delivery in as little as five days. The system is fully guaranteed for five years.

All IGUs are manufactured to deliver the highest levels of performance with a laminated softcoat inner pane, warm edge spacer and 6mm tough outer-pane. All units are argon filled as standard achieving U-values as low as 1.0W/m2K.  Where supplied with integral blinds, the system runs off a mains supply at the wall control.

“We’ve developed the HiTech TR90 as an opportunity for fitters to pitch an added-value and, therefore, higher margin option to the end-user,” Ian said.

“The Hitech TR90 delivers as a standard rooflight, offering great sightlines and superb performance. Supplied as standard with fully integrated blinds, however, the TR90 Rooflight generates a unique and high margin sales opportunity.”
