At Bay Blinds & Doors, we can make Roller Blinds to suit most openings—large or small, wide or narrow, and floor-to-ceiling. We can custom-fit your Rollers Blinds up to 3-metre widths.
Roller Blinds look greatWith their streamlined design, Roller Blinds roll up behind a neat pelmet when opened and sit tightly against the window when closed.
Changing the height of the blind gives you quick, easy control of light and privacy in your room. Reaching behind furniture to open or close them won’t be the case for Roller Blinds. Some motorised systems allow you to link the operation for flick-of-a-button control over as many as 3 blinds.
If your choice is an easy-clean fabric, your Roller Blinds will not only be easy to keep clean, harbouring dust and mites won’t be an issue, so they will also be the best choice for allergy sufferers.
Fabric choices for Roller Blinds are countless, so you’re free to choose colour, style, pattern and texture. You can also choose standard, sheer, or complete blockout fabrics.
Easy to use and easy to maintain, Roller Blinds don’t generally suffer badly from wear and tear over time.
Types of Roller BlindsIn the past, all roller blinds totally blocked out light. To allow some light in the room, you adjusted the height of the blinds.
Now, you can choose dual blinds, allowing you to run both a sheer blind and a blockout blind on the same window. This gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to controlling indoor temperature or your privacy.
Today, you have more choices:
- Blockout Roller Blinds
- Bonded Roller Blinds
- Light-filter Roller Blinds
- Sunscreen Roller Blinds
Bonded blinds have soft fabric ‘bonded’ to their surface to make them more appropriate in a living room or more formal setting.
Light-filter blinds allow filtered light to enter the room, giving you privacy during the day without blocking light.
Sunscreen blinds filter out harsh UV radiation and allow greater outdoor visibility than light-filter blinds—you get daytime privacy and enjoy the view during the day, without so much sunlight entering the house.
You might, for example, choose light-filter blinds for windows that don’t enjoy views and sunscreen blinds for windows with views or that you’d like to see your kids in the backyard. Sunscreen blinds also help save energy by blocking the heat of the sun.
Roller Blinds can reduce up to 90% of heat and glare. When it comes to maintaining privacy and controlling just the right levels of natural light, Rollers are great solutions.
Why are they called Holland Blinds?
Roller Blinds have a long history and continue to be a practical and good-looking option today. Similar in design and operation to Roman Blinds, Roller Blinds were developed centuries later.
Roller Blinds have been around for more than 300 years. In the early 1700s, Roller Blinds were made from Holland linen from the Netherlands. The fabric was then produced in Glasgow, hence the name ‘Scotch Holland.’
These early Holland roller blinds didn’t have spring mechanisms. When closed, the fabric simply lay in folds on the window ledge. Opening them required pulling a cord attached to the top rod, then securing the cord to a cleat.
