OPTIONAL CONTROL SYSTEMS
- Standard Roller BlindA single chain operated roller blind, manual operation.
- Dependent Linked Roller Blinds
Up to 3 blinds linked together by and intermediate bracket, with single chain control.
- Independent Linked Roller Blinds
2 blinds linked together by an intermediate bracket, with separate chain controls for each blind. Using the linked system reduces light gaps between the blinds. Face fit standard supplied with matching bracket cover.
- Double Roller Blinds
Two Blinds installed on one set of brackets.Face fit are supplied with bracket covers as standard
Slimline bracket – Same side controls
Blind 1 (closest to glass) – Standard (normal) roll
Blind 2 (closest to room) – Standard (front) roll
- Dependent Double & Linked Roller Blinds
Two or more blinds linked together by an intermediate bracket, with one chain control. Using the linked system reduces light gaps between the blinds.
- Two or more blinds linked together by an intermediate bracket, each blind is operated with separate chain controls. Using the linked system reduces light gaps between the blinds.
Large roller blinds will show fabric wavering, this is because it is impossible to make a large piece of fabric hang perfectly flat. This generally appears on rollers with widths greater than 2000mm and/or drops greater than 3000mm. Consider splitting the blind into two smaller widths and linking them together.
For a roller blind with a patterned fabric, the pattern grain won’t usually line up perfectly with the horizontal or vertical edges of the blind. Expect to see a variation of up to a few centimeters along the pattern direction from one side of the blind to the other.
It will be assumed that all the provided widths are ‘opening size’, factory takes all deductions unless make size specified.
- Standard (normal) roll
Blind fabric falls back closest to the window. Standard roll is recommended to minimize light and help with insulating.
- Reverse (front) roll
Blind fabric falls towards the room. This method is used to hide block-out backing & minimize light gaps for blinds in bay windows etc.
Standard non continuous chains come with a chain joiner. Plastic continuous chains available in lengths of 250, 500, 750, 1200, & 1500mm only Nickel & Stainless Steel chains are also available in a continuous length (nominate).
Flat base bar with mohair only available in Silver. Front covered fabric only.
Plain Trim (Concealed), Enclosed PVC rail in a sewn bottom packet.
Available for block-out & translucent fabrics only, not available for screen fabrics. Refer to below trim options. Trims are all approximately 150mm deep with matching gymp. For trim styles 4, 6, 9, 16, 17, X, there will be additional light gaps on the bottom of a reveal fit blind.
All roller blinds allow light to pass around the sides of the fabric (even with blockout fabric). Consider using face fit as an option rather than reveal fit.
Roller blinds with blockout fabrics will usually show some cupping on each of the vertical edges. Cupping of up to a few centimeters will be considered within an acceptable allowance.
When measuring blinds for a bay window you are required to calculate the width deductions. Accurate measurements are important to ensure the blind fits on install; it is important to specify if the provided measurements are taken from the front or the back of the reveal. DO NOT supply measurements taken from a mid-point in the reveal.
Most roller blinds simply require regular vacuuming with an upholstery attachment.
To remove, sponge blind clean with a damp cloth. Use diluted washing liquid in warm water & avoid rubbing the stain. Do not immerse blinds in water.
Small dry marks may be rubbed off with a gum-based eraser.
