An old time classic that never goes out of date - Roller Blinds!
Roller Blinds have been around for decades and while most people have the impression of a throwback from the sixties, more and more people are opting for this minimalistic and clean look. The Roller Blind has gone through many changes throughout the years and can be seen through its current styles, colours, fabrics and methods of operation.
Styles have changed from the standard blind to now include double rollers, minis, cassette, roof and panel blinds and can be made in a range of colours to match any decor.
There are a multitude of different fabrics that they can be made from ranging from total blockout fabrics that are perfect for room darkening such as the bedroom through to a vast range of screen, and translucent fabrics offering a sheer finish that protects you from sun and UV rays while still contributing to privacy.
When you need to cool your home but not lose your view, the answer is Sunscreen Blinds!
Sunscreen rollers give your home the ultimate in light and temperature control without hindering on your view. Sunscreen rollers add a sophisticated and elegant appearance whilst giving protection from the sun – which can fade fabrics, furniture and carpets.
Sunscreen Rollers are made with the environment in mind using design processes, materials and product that are environmentally friendly. The fabrics used on Sunscreen Rollers are made from flame retardant material so it will suit commercial purposes too.
You also have a choice in which way your roller will roll - front roll or back roll - this will determine how much gap will show between the window frame and the blind that could affecting privacy levels.
Methods of operation can vary from individual chain-driven mechanisms that are manual, automatic or electronic. There are also different mounting systems such as placing the blinds side by side so they both can be operated by a single control. Double mounted brackets allow two blinds on the same window, ideal for a sheer day Sunscreen Roller and then a block out blind for night. Other options are to have the blind mounted in a cassette which is great for hiding away the mechanisms and lastly is to have an aluminium bar at the bottom of the blind, giving a more modern finish.
