Abstract (en)

Device for effecting both the upward and downward movements of venetian blinds and the tilting movement of their slats by means of the actuation of a single mechanism. The venetian blinds (30), inserted in cavities (24) between glass panes (12, 14) of double-glazing units (10), are activated upwards or downwards by a plurality of flexible cables (38) designed to be accommodated by helical grooves (90) formed on the side surface of cylindrical winding devices (88) rotated by a shaft (86) common to all the winding devices (88), said winding devices having their helical grooves (90) also engaged in correspondingly threaded holes (94) of rocker elements (92) provided with slots (96) designed to accommodate a plurality of flexible cables (42) controlling, with their movement, the tilt of slats (32) which form the venetian blinds (30), where the rocker elements (92) initially rotate with the cylindrical winding devices (88), influencing the tilt of the slats (32), and then stop against cradles stops (130) present on one side of a frame (26) housing the said devices for operating the blind. <IMAGE>
