Roller blinds – simply practical SILENT GLISS
Thanks to its large shaft, the roller blind is a popular and easy-to-use window decoration: The fabric is wrapped over a canvas shaft and unrolled if necessary, hence the name “roller blind”. So that the roller blind does not swing back and forth, it is held in tension by a cable guide or by a weight on the hem. The roller blind can be mounted on walls and ceilings or directly on windows and glass doors. Since the roller blind can look a bit blurry when curled up, a cassette that can be color-matched to the surroundings ensures that the roller blind is “hidden”. In the closed cassette, the roller blind is protected from dust.
The roller blind: the right operation
A roller blind can be operated in various ways: with side-pull operation, with center control, as a latching model or with electric drive. The roller blind with side pull operation is used most frequently because the operation is very simple: In this roller blind, a cord or a ball chain is attached to the side of the shaft. This allows the shaft to be moved steplessly, which causes the roller blind to be pulled up and down.
The roller blind with central operation is also called jumping or snap-on roller blind. Also in this roller blind, the fabric is wound around a shaft; however, a spring is attached to this. The spring is tensioned when rolling the roller blind. For the roller blind to remain down, the spring must be locked.
With the snap-in roller blind, the weighting rod of the roller blind is latched on the right and left into mounted brackets. Similar to the Springrollo the shaft is equipped with a spring mechanism. However, this is technically altered, which is why the roller blind is constantly under tension. Snap-in roller blinds are often used in sloping skylights.A roller blind with electric drive is moved by a small motor. The motor can be operated either by a switch or by radio using a remote control. For very tall windows, for example in office buildings, this shade is used more frequently.
What materials are roller blinds made of?
A roller blind can be made of different materials: cotton, polyester, nylon, but also a roll of paper yarn or bamboo is possible. So that the roller blind does not wrinkle, the fabric is stiffened. Most manufacturers make sure that the shade is UV resistant and flame retardant. The denser the fabric of the fabric, the heavier the roller blind and the thicker the shaft is when rolled up. Especially with the assembly you should keep these facts in mind.
