Choose your Roller Fabric blind
Sunscreen fabric is see-through, which makes it perfect for living rooms with a great view! During the day you'll have both privacy and natural light. However, at night, you may lose some privacy with the light on.
Sunscreen fabric is also ideal when paired with a blockout blind fabric to make double roller blinds.
Light filtering fabrics gently diffuse natural light and provide privacy. They are best used in living spaces where you need natural light, but don't wish to look through the blinds. Windows that are on the side of your home and face your fence or neighbour are perfect examples.

Select your bracket and hardware colour
Choose one of our four standard colours for your roller blind brackets and blind components. Most window frames are white or have white architraves, which makes white the most popular choice. However, it’s possible to match your bracket colour to your fabric selection if you’d prefer.
We also offer the same 4 colours for the bottom trim on your blind. It’s best to match your fabric as closely as possible. If there’s no obvious match, it’s a good idea to use white, as this typically blends in nicely with your wall colour.

You may need to regularly clean your roller blinds to ensure they stay free from dust and to help your investment last longer. To clean, simply use a damp cloth or feather duster. Ensure your roller blinds are completely dry before winding them back up.
- First, unscrew the safety device that’s attached to your wall.
- Roll up your blind, stopping halfway
- Get a long piece of paper and tuck it into the middle of the blind before rolling the rest of it up
- Pass the paper over and around the blind once the roller blind is fully rolled up. This creates a handle hold.
- On the opposite side of the chain, you’ll notice a slotted cog. Wind the cog in until you hear a small pin retract.
- Remove the pin, and the blind will drop out.
Blockout blinds are a type of window covering that uses fabric where you cannot see out and nobody can see in. The fabric is not see-through, which means when it is pulled down, you cannot see through at night, or during the day.
If they’re hung correctly, then yes, they can block out the majority of external light.
The foam-backed, opaque fabric makes it difficult to see through blackout blinds during the day or night.
The cost of blockout blinds depends on a number of factors, such as the type of fabric you want, how many windows you wish to cover, the area of each window, and the level of professionalism involved in the measuring and installation.
Yes, blackout blinds are designed to block all light from entering a room. When installed properly by professionals, they provide the perfect level of light control and privacy.
No, you can’t see through blackout blinds. The fabric used is not see-through, and therefore doesn’t allow light to filter through. It’s for this reason that they are ideal for bedrooms (for privacy), as well as media rooms and rooms with a television (for the ultimate in-home entertainment experience.)
Choose how you control your blind
Our roller blind components feature a patented metal core technology. The metal core mechanisms bring in a new generation of effortless, quiet, and long-lasting components.
Through the use of specific polymer formulas, we’re able to provide precision components with low tolerances, which significantly reduces resistance. This reduction in friction, combined with our bespoke planetary gear reduction system, means that larger blinds feel light to pull up.
Smart Home Motorisation
Simple control of your roller blinds using your smartphone.
The Connector App allows intuitive control of your smart blinds. You can access and operate your blinds in any room or location with a simple click of a button on your iPhone or Android device. Some other features of the app include the ability to set “Scenes” like “Home Time” or “Goodbye” where, for example, your living room blinds close when you’re ready to leave home for the day.
Pick your bracket style
Single Brackets for roller blinds come in two varieties; a standard and a heavy duty. They visually look the same, and both feature a sleek cover when mounted to the outside of your window frame or on your architraves.
Double brackets turn your day and night blinds. By putting a see-through sunscreen and a blockout fabric on your window, you get the best of both worlds. Our slimline bracket neatly stacks the two blinds on top of one another to help avoid the blinds sitting proud of the window frame.
Link brackets are great for large spans such as sliding or bi-fold doors. The link bracket is shared between two blinds. It features a ball bearing for quiet operation and helps to reduce the light gap between two blinds. Roller blinds that have been linked can either be operated from one chain or independently.
