RE: Can I attach roller shades or blinds to my Tubelite framing system?
To all concerned,
Attachment of roller shades to the interior surface of vertical mullions will not void Tubelite's product warranty.
It is advised that the additional load be considered when evaluating the structural capacity of the storefront or curtainwall system. In general, as long as the weight of the shades is not excessive, and as long as they are not cantilevered to the inside, the attachment does not result in any significant change to the requirements of the system.
Tubelite would be happy to review your application. If in doubt, a review by a P.E. is advised. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tubelite’s Engineering Team – firstname.lastname@example.org
