Roller Blockout Blinds (sometimes referred to as Holland Blinds) have been around for many years but are now making a strong comeback. New fabrics have revitalized the Roller Blinds. They add a touch of class to any home or office while offering full privasee. Roller blinds can be combined with sunscreen blinds on the same bracket to satisfy your day and night requirements.
Operation of both the Sunscreen and Roller Blockout Blinds work by the fabric rolling around a tube, the tube is turned either by a sidewinder unit with operating chain or by the tensioning of a spring located within the tube.
Most Sunscreen and Roller blinds today are operated by the sidewinder unit, this gives greater control and ease of operation.
- The tube is either roll formed galvanized colour bond at .4mm thickness or in aluminium of 0.9 to 1.7mm thickness.
- Spring assemblies are out of 1.4 to 1.6mm spring wire with a 4 stop motor. brass pawls operate on a zinc plated steel latch ring.
- sidewinder units are made from glass filled acetal bearing surfaces. The spring clutch is constructed from 1.2mm*2.4mm hardened square spring wire.
All the fabrics in this range completely block out all light, i.e. no light penetrates the fabric. These fabrics give full privacy and great control of heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer when fully down.
Dawn, Melaleuca, Raindrops & Snowfake fabrics are the same as used in vertical blinds. These fabrics represent the best value, plain fabrics. Refer to Verticals for fabric specifications.
Sovereign fabrics have a gold thread woven pattern that are popular for decorating. The fabric is manufactured out of 100% polyester with crushed acrylic foam backing for greater insulation. Luminous transmittance (% of visible light transmitted through the fabric) is 0%, solar transmittance (% the suns ultraviolet, visible and near infrared energy that is transmitted through the fabric is 0%, shading coefficient of 0.16 and a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.14.

We offer a deluxe pelmet system which basically provides a profiled cover that hides the fabric on the roller tube and also hides the sidewinder mechanism with only the chain being visible. The pelmet can have a fabric insert or be powder coated in 3 colours.
All the Sunscreen and Roller Blockout range of blinds lend themselves to motorization. This is where a motor is located inside the roller tube. The motor draws on 240 volt power and is operated via remote controls. For more information contact the office.
