De Leeuw Ltd t/a Reflex-Rol U.K. was established in 1983 as a specialist and bespoke sunblind/Solar control manufacturer serving commercial building for the U.K. and Ireland. The company now also exports and installs its systems in various Countries around the Globe. Brand names are REFLEX-ROL Insulating Solar & Glare Control Systems and MERMET Glassfibre screens for Solar shading applications, tensile structures and digital printing industries.
The company’s core business is liaising with architects, building engineers and building simulation companies to find and design to correct shading solutions for any given building. This can range from small ‘home offices’ to buildings like The Shard where indeed many thousands of square meters of MERMET glassfibre based blind fabrics have been installed.
During the early 2000’s the company developed a specialist system for Air Traffic Control Towers and now designs and installs these ‘aviation’ systems in many control towers around the World. The company philosophy is ‘Can do and Will do’ and deliver systems that may not always be what the end users wants, but what the building needs to keep cool and free if internal glare issues. A result of this philosophy is that many clients are ‘repeat and returning’ clients.
