Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds

No longer just a couple of brackets, a tube and a chain; the roller blind has got sophisticated with several cassette box options in various colours and with the option to be fabric covered even fabric covered pelmets are available too. The bottom of the blind has various options with different types of bottom bars, shapes, scallops and decorative accessories.

Even the way they operate has evolved there's several chain options, spring tensioned pull down with slow rise, crank handle and electrically operated by mains or rechargeable battery; they even can have a solar panel to make them totally "off grid" and a sun sensor to close automatically.

Roller blinds have several advantages when they are open and fully retracted you get the full window allowing the most light possible in with no grouping of fabrics like other blind types. The other advantage over a sideways closing blinds is that you can lower the blind to a level required and still retain an uninterrupted view out under the blind and you also can retain full use of the window sill area when closed.

CoolGlass have domestic and commercial ranges of blind systems and fabrics giving you the right product for the right application and a blind that can last for decades without issue. Rollers with screen fabrics have become very popular in commercial (and now domestic also) applications now specified instead of the tractional verticals due to being a more durable system less likely to getting damaged or trapped in opening windows especially when fitted with optional side guides or guide wires. They reduce the suns annoyance but can maintain light and view making for a much more pleasant working and living environment.

If you are looking for a roller blind which can actually reduce heat and glare we have a range of specialist Solar Blinds which actually reflect heat effectively should Solar Control Window Films not be applicable. We have a ranges of roller fly screens ideal during summer months when ventilation is welcome but insects are not (a legal requirement in commercial food preparation areas).
