Things About Roller Blinds Perth
How do roller blind mechanisms work?
The blind is manufactured with a fabric or other soft material which can be retracted onto a roller. The roller can be controlled by a chain mechanism. They can also be motorized, but the most common way is that they are spring loaded.
In what way are roller blinds different from other blinds?
Other styles of blinds are made of solid materials. Venetian blinds use horizontal slats with an adjustable angle to block or allow light through. Plantation shutters use adjustable slats in solid doors, so either the slats or the whole door can be opened and shut.
Roller blinds are very soft materials that are easy to retract into a small area above the window.
What fabrics can be used for roller blinds?
You can use almost any colour fabric for blinds, or many colours of vinyl.
Blinds can be patterned, textured, or decorated. What’s less well known is that some fabrics can block UV light while letting in natural, visible sunlight.
Are there general advantages to Roller systems?
Roller blinds are easier to clean compared to venetian blinds, or plantation shuttles, and easier to clean than most curtains.
They also take very little space.
What is front roll and back roll?
This refers to the fabric coming off the front or back of the roller.
The front roll provides some clearance for window knobs
The back roll blocks more light by aligning closely to the window edge.
