Important information

Fabric “V”ING

Large width roller blinds larger than 2400mm and/or longer than 3000mm, could show the effect of “V’ing. This effect is predominant on all large blinds. To reduce this effect, consider splitting the blind into smaller widths and/or multi-linking blinds together.

Light Gaps

All roller blinds allow light to pass around the sides of the fabric (even when blockout fabric is used). This is because the overall width of the blind including its brackets is always wider than the fabric width. Light Gaps are most prominent when a blind is fitted inside a window recess. Face fitting may be a better option than reveal fitting.
