The popularity of roller blinds has soared in recent years due to their minimalistic and functional qualities.
They are excellent in service areas such as kitchens and bathrooms due to the ease with which they can be cleaned.
Unobtrusive in appearance, roller blinds are popular as an attractive and economic window covering to provide privacy and light control.
Blockout blinds can be used on their own or fitted behind sheer curtains to provide night-time privacy. They can also be teamed up with sunscreen blinds and fitted into the same window using a double bracket system to give complete day and night privacy.
Sunscreen and sheer roller blinds can be paired with curtains or roman blinds for a complete window treatment combination.
Operation is either by a chain mechanism or motorisation – eliminating the need for chains.
Maximum blind width is 3000mm. For wider windows and doors, multiple blinds can be butted next to each other. See measuring guide below for more details.

Step 6. Do you want your blind front rolled or back rolled?
The fabric rolls off the front of the blind. Most often used inside window frames for a minimalist look and to avoid hitting window/door hardware.
The fabric rolls off the back of the blind. Best option for blinds fitted on or above the window frames to decrease the gap between the fabric and the frame.
Be aware that if you choose a fabric with a white thermal backing this will show on the rolled part at the top.
Step 10. Do you need single or double brackets? You only need double brackets if you are going to add a sunscreen roller blind in the same window - in that case please specify standard or slim double brackets on the form.
