Saftey Features

Since this double roller shade unit is being installed in the front windshield, the following technically-advanced safety features are standard with this unit to limit the risk of inhibiting the view of the driver should one of the blinds accidentally fail in its operation:

· Mechanical Limit Switches: Shades are powered by motors with mechanical limit switches to eliminate loss of end positions which is common with motors that have electronic limits.

· Motor Saftey Shut-Off: To prevent overheating, motor shuts off automatically should it become blocked for any reason.

· Integrated Safety Spring: Prevents shades from accidentally unravelling in case of component failure; automatically raises shades out of driver sight should motors ever fail.

· Mounting Rail: Sturdy aluminum mounting rail with solid steel bracket eliminates risk of brackets not being aligned properly during installation.

· Safety Clutch: Stops operation of shade should it ever become disengaged from mounting bracket.

· Anchored Motor Drive: Firmly secured inside roller tube to keep motor in place should shade accidentally be dropped during transport or installation.

· Secures Motor Head: Tightly attached to bracket to prevent seperation of motor from bracket.

· Safety Wiring & Visor Function: AMS Screen shades are available with an 8” vinyl visor strip at the bottom of the solor screen shade to provide sun protection while driving. This feature allows a clear view of the surroundings for safe driving and is an excellent alternative to using the privacy shade as a sun visor while on the road.
