Roller Blind Types

Roller Blinds are a cost effective covering for windows.  There are many different types of Roller Blinds. Available in a wide range of patterned and plain fabrics, co-ordinating with your decor is not difficult.

Once the blind of choice for bathrooms and commercial offices, the huge range and quality of the fabrics has made Rollers the choice around the house.

Types of Roller Blind Fabrics.

From Room Darkening to Voiles (creating daytime privacy roller blinds), the fabrics available are vast. 

Including an exciting range of fabrics made from recycled elements. Some of these fabrics are fully recycled, some have a high percentage of recycled fibres in them. All are stunning to look at and some can even deliver a dramatic focal point in your room.

About Roller Blinds

What Rooms are suitable for Roller Blinds

Quite simply, rollers can be used in any room in the house. From Kitchen Roller Blinds made using splash resistant fabrics, through fully scrubbable and waterproof PVC Bathroom Roller Blinds all the way to elegant Blackout fabrics to create room darkening blinds in the bedroom.

Standard Roll versus Reverse Roll

These terms simply refer to the way the fabric drops down from the tube. Standard Roll means the fabric rolls down from the back of the tube closer to the window. We primarily use a Standard Rolled Blind where the Roller Blind is installed above the recess for the window. Having the fabric roll in this way keeps the cloth closer to the opening and results in a neater look.

Reverse Roll vs Standard Roll

Reverse Roll on the other hand means the fabric rolls down from the front of the tube. We primarily fit using Reverse Rolled Blinds when installing inside the recess, close to the window. The fabric rolling off the front of the tube leaves a gap behind for any protruding window handles. 

Roller Blind with Cassette Pelmet

Adding a Pelmet.

Many of our Roller Blinds can be fitted with an additional metal pelmet to cover the roll at the top. The pelmet can be covered with a matching, or contrasting, fabric. Or, alternatively be left bare if that complements the window style behind.

Construction of Our Roller Blinds

All our rollers have sturdy aluminium tubes creating the core of the roll. We use aluminium for a variety of reasons. Firstly the weight factor. Compared to steel, aluminium is lighter, thus placing less weight stress on the brackets and fixings. 

Aluminium does not rust as Steel does, or crush as cardboard tubes can do when exposed to moisture. 

Additionally the diameter of our tubes increases depending on the width of the blind. Meaning that a wider, heavier blind will have a larger diameter tube than a narrower lighter blind. Which, in turn, helps prevent any sagging in the middle of the blind.

Roller Blind Chain

Operation of the Roller Blind

Rollers can be easily operated using a chain operation. Available in a number of finishes including white or chrome coloured, the chains run into a sturdy nylon mechanism, allowing easy use.

Alternatively, they can motorised, making easy operation with the touch of a button.

Sprung Rollers were very popular in the 1970’s and 80’s and are still available now. However, due to their unpredictable nature and some reliability issues, they can be difficult to operate and unfortunately, therefore only come with a 1 year Guarantee.

So wether you are looking for Conservatory Roller Blinds, Roller Blinds for bifold doors or any other room in the house, book a consultation and find out how they can transform your room.
