The Free Link operating system allows two sets of blinds to have fully independent operation whilst sharing a common centre support bracket. Such a combination can prove of use when covering a large glass area with the need to negate tube deflection, whilst minimising spacing between blinds thus reducing light strike. In addition, such installations offer the opportunity of covering openings of different drops with a shared intermediate bracket.
The Drive Link operating system allows two blinds to be joined together with a shared single control mechanism. This facilitates one action being required to raise or lower the blinds simultaneously. The capacity of the lifting mechanism is dependent upon the performance rating of the operating unit. The drive link mechanism also allows two blinds to be driven by a singular powered drive.
