A stylish and reliable Installation for every 48E System

The 48E System can be provided with 3 rack arms. In 90% of the projects the Standard Rack Arms fulfills the job perfectly, but in special circumstances the "Heavy Duty Rack Arm" or the "Box Rack Arm" are used. Additionally, Sunshield has a broad experience and a large assorment of mounting brackets and methods. With that, a stylish and reliable installation is guaranteed for every blind in every situation. For each project, the Sunshield engineers provide a detailed installation scheme, customized to the specific situation of that project. They are specialized in making the system "disappear" in the mullions, window frames and beams. It is guaranteed that the Sushield system gives an integrated view with the building.
