Spanish term or phrase: estores de accionamiento manual
A report from Spain describing the facades of the buildings. I have no idea what the word "estores" means in this sentence: "PROTECCIONES INTERIORES:
formadas por **estores de accionamiento manual**, con movimiento de cierre de suelo a techo, modulados con la estructura vertical de aluminio de cierre de fachadas. Están formados por un tejido trenzado de hilos de fibra de vidrio protegidos por material sintético guiados con una varilla de remate de aluminio sobre dos cables laterales tensados." I'll appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you!

Yes, you could also call them shades, but they're also known as Roman blinds (maybe I should have been more specific about the Roman part). Have a look:
