What are they?
The standard non-motorised blinds are designed on the principle of tension and release.
There are various models such as the spring roller window blinds which use a spring to create tension and friction. This is meant to hold the blind in the proper position when the tension has been applied, and the releasing of the tension which would allow for an easy way to reposition them. Some of the other types use methods such as continuous loop action, which provides a smoother and more natural up-and-down motion for the blind.
When you are searching for your own roller blind, look no further than Empire Window Furnishings. Our professionally trained consultants advise and assist you to help you choose the best product.
Aluminium is quite often used for building roller blinds since it is capable of offering strong tensile strength and durability without adding a great deal of weight to the blind.
Classic Roman Blinds – pocket concealed rods & stitching on the reverse side of the blind. Roman Blinds – arched battens across the face of the blind to soften its appearance and provide a contemporary finish. Sewless Roman Blinds – have pocketed panels but with no stitching joins.
Roller blind fabrics are designed specifically for strong sun and damaging ultra violet light, making them extremely hardy and long-lasting. Our fabric collection incorporates a vast array of sheer, translucent and block-out fabrics in both plain and textured finish.
Motorised roman blinds combines the flexibility and convenience of automation for enhanced internal comfort and control. These incorporate the “NICE” NS 11000 ME motor, 137W, and enables silent movement of the blind with a highly durable motor.
A stiff pelmet teamed with roman blinds can be an attractive and practical solution for a small “problem” window where curtains are unsuitable and a blind alone may seem insufficient. Adding the stiff pelmet has the effect of creating a smarter more formal finish.
How to choose
Here are some general tips from our Empire Window Furnishings consultants: In general, the blind should be designed to match the house and should look attractive. You should always test them to ensure that the hem rail is heavy enough to allow the blind to hang the right way when it is mounted to the window.
Another feature that you should always look for is one-step push-button release. This allows for an easy replacement of a worn out blind without having to remove the existing brackets and mounting hardware. You can even have blinds that feature custom covers for the sides, which can provide a more complete look to the roller coverings. If you think that your blind will be under heavy use, you might want to consider heavy-duty ones, which have been specifically designed to stand up to more frequent daily use.
For greater convenience and ease of use, motorised roller blinds are an obvious choice. Their installation usually requires electrical wiring and a rocker wall switch that will raise or lower the blinds to a number of preset positions.
For additional convenience, there are some roller blind systems which are attached to a timer that allows the blinds to be automatically raised or lowered at specific times during the day which have been set in advance. This is a great way to keep your privacy during the day, especially if you are away from home for a couple of days. This can also add some extra security measures to your home, since it will give the onlookers an impression that there is someone at home during these times who controls the blind.
This can ensure more safety and you will feel more assured that nobody will infiltrate your home while you are away. Some of them can also be found with additional remote control devices which can be used to operate them from a distance. This means that you can make them go up or down while you are lying on the couch or bed, giving you extra convenience.
