Roman Blinds

A Roman blind is a length of material which when drawn up, gathers into horizontal folds from the bottom. Romans are also referred to as Roman Shades and are usually opened with a cord mechanism, but in recent times made with chain operation allowing the user to adjust the height of the covered area. The control cord runs vertically alongside the blind either right or left, depending on accessibility or customer preference.

Romans are all corded and come with standard cord lock, double cleats and brackets for hanging. The Roman blinds cord mechanism runs vertically on the back of the blind, running through evenly spaced horizontal stiffener rods or eyelets, and then attaches to the bottom of the blind.

Styles of Roman Blinds

The Classic Roman with aluminium back battens provides a very slim crease or pleat on the fascia of the blind, with an even crease repeated from top to bottom. For a more contemporary look, Romans can be made with half rounded wooden battens on the front and rear of the blind.

Specifications for Roman Blinds:

  • 42mm headboards with adjustable Velcro tape
  • 70mm lathe pocket to base
  • Panels are calculated by the drops to ensure equal spacing throughout
  • Top panel will be larger than the other panels to allow blind to stack beneath
  • Cord & cleat operation with cord lock, chain drive, one touch & motorized operations available
  • Back battens are stitched on every fold
  • Aluminium back battens have on every fold a clear spline insert to face
  • 70mm lathe pocket to base
  • There is swivel cord lock or heavy duty cord lock
  • Wide selection of block-out and translucent fabrics available

NOTE: All Roman blinds settle after installation. The type of fabric, its weight and size of the blind will affect the extent to which the blind settles out. As this is unpredictable, the final drop may vary by up to 20mm. We recommend face fitting and the blind to be made wider and longer to reduce the amount of light filtering through.
