Unicel Architectural, the leading manufacturer of vision and daylight control solutions, announced today that both its Vision Control® integrated louvers and ViuLite® integrated blinds solutions come with operators that comply with the US Department of Justice Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards for accessible design.
These standards set the requirements for more readily accessible and usable facilities for the disabled.
“The need for inclusive accessibility touches everything – even the control of light and privacy,” said Jean-François Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural.
“It was therefore of utmost importance to us that our Vision Control® and ViuLite® products offer options for ADA-compliant operations. Whether in hospitals, schools or any other public buildings, the angling or closing of our glass-encased louvers and blinds to manage visibility and light can be performed with operators that cater to individuals with disabilities.”
Vision Control® is a patented, hermetically sealed glass unit combining louvers within glass that ensure optimal control of vision, daylight, heat and sound. ADA-compliant operators include:
||Flat Aluminum Knob
ViuLite® is a system of blinds that are permanently sealed within a double-glazed cavity for a completely dust-free and maintenance-free environment. ADA-compliant operators include:
Top and Bottom Frontal Knobs
Patented magnetic system knobs with manual tilt-only operation.
Tilting and raising operation with one magnetic slider with a narrow adhesive transparent profile that ensures the easy linear movement of the slider.
