Roller Blinds, also known as Holland Blinds, have been around for decades and while most people have the impression of a throwback from the sixties, more and more people are opting for this minimalistic and clean look. The Roller Blind has gone through many changes throughout the years and can be seen through its current styles, colours, fabrics and methods of operation.
Styles have changed from the standard blind to now include double rollers, minis, cassette, roof and panel blinds and can be made in a range of colours to match any decor.
There are a multitude of different fabrics that they can be made from ranging from total blockout fabrics that are perfect for room darkening such as the bedroom through to a vast range of screen fabrics offering a sheer finish that protects you from sun and UV rays while still contributing to privacy.
Standard Roller blinds were made of solid sheets of stiff fabric and a hollowed tube that contains a ratchet and spring that was raised or lowered by a pulley on the bottom of the fabric providing easy control of the blinds without touching the fabric surface. Manually adjustable roller blinds have side winders that lock the blinds at different levels with the internal ratchet. Large roller blinds on sliding glass doors or picture windows are usually motorized and raised up and down by remote control.
Roller blinds are typically arranged with the fabric rolling behind the roller which keeps the blinds close to the window and amplifies the light blockage. The blinds can also roll in front of the tube, but this creates a gap in between the blinds and window and may cause a gap that lets in light through the window.
