Roller Blinds

We specialise in creating roller blinds in customers’ own fabrics either by laminating or processing the fabrics. We also make roller blinds from our pre-stiffened in-house fabric ranges.

All our roller blinds are available with sidewinder chain mechanisms which come in white plastic, chrome, brass or antique brass or as spring rollers with a centre cord and wooden acorn pull. We recommend fitting sidewinder mechanisms to particularly wide or long roller blinds or when using thicker/heavier fabrics.

Electrically and battery operated roller blinds are also available.


Plain Roller Blinds

We offer a range of pre-stiffened roller blind fabrics. They come in blackout, opaque and sheer (semi-opaque) in a variety of colours. Please see the images on our Sample Fabrics page.

Specialist Screen Vision fibreglass fabric and flame retardant fabrics are also available.

Roller blinds are available with a range of base shapes to which your own trim can be added.


Laminated Roller Blinds

Laminated Roller Blinds are made by heat bonding a stiffened backing cloth, either standard or blackout (white or cream) to the face material. This method is suitable for most fabric types except materials with a high synthetic content. This is the method used to join fabrics to produce a blind wider than the fabric width.

We also make double-sided laminated roller blinds, ie with a face fabric on the front and reverse of the blind.

Base shapes and/or borders to the base & sides can be applied to laminated roller blinds.

We are very happy to test laminate customers’ fabric samples.


Processed Roller Blinds

Processed Roller Blinds are created by stiffening the face fabric with a specialist solution. Processing is most suitable for voile, lace and untreated cotton & cotton mix fabrics. It is not suitable for silks, fabrics with a high synthetic content or fabrics with metal threads in the weave.

It is not possible to join processed fabrics, so blind sizes must be within the fabric width (unless the fabric can be ‘railroaded’). We are happy to process extra wide fabrics up to a maximum width and drop. Base shapes and base borders can be applied to processed roller blinds.

We are very happy to test process customers’ fabric samples.
