The pictures in this slideshow are quite revealing especially if you consider that these blinds are 5 years old. The solar roller shades in this Chipotle Restaurant receive hard commercial use every day. Trust me when I say that these blinds were not carefully used but rather were abused.
Remarkably, after five years, we were able to replace a few clutches and chains, make some minor adjustments and had the blinds back to working as good as new. The fabrics still looked great and the functionality for west-facing windows was perfect.
So, if you are concerned about the durability of roller shades in a commercial application, take heart as this proves that solar roller shades are tough and with minor repairs will last years. Just imagine how well they would perform if they were in a more controlled light use environment.
Of course, we would love to help you with your restaurant's or home's roller shade project. Contact us today for a complimentary consultation! Thanks for your interest in Latreia Blinds and Shutters!
