Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0549216A1] A covering for an architectural opening such as a window or door is in the form of a vertically oriented fabric assembly having front and rear sheer fabrics (10,12) interconnected by vertically extending vanes (14). The vanes (14) can be tilted through a series of carriers (20) mounted on a track rail (26) from which the covering is suspended in order to adjust the spacing between the fabrics (10,12) between open and closed positions and adjust the light transmitting characteristics of the covering. The covering can be extended across the opening by separating the carriers on the track rail and can be contracted by stacking the carriers (20) toward one end of the track rail. A unique design of carrier allows the covering to fold on itself in the contracted state, in the manner of a conventional drape. <IMAGE>
