All the blinds within our Romans range are controlled by a cord-operated system which allows the blind to fall and unfold to a precise height and, when raised, gathers the blind in neat folds. The system features a neat and robust inertia-reel locking mechanism that allows you to select precisely the amount of light that enters the room, knowing that your blinds will look great in any position. The Roman blinds in the OzBlinds collection are from the leading manufacturers, we choose them for the quality of their construction and attention to detail and fit. That’s how we are able to assure our customers of many years of trouble-free use. They are also tailor made in the factory to the measurements each customer gives us (see here for important guidance on how to measure your windows). The result is a sharp, stylish look, agreeably softened by the fall and fold of the blinds’ fabric.
Choosing the right fabric and colour
Like all the blinds we have to offer, OzBlinds’ Romans come with choice of fabric and choice of colour.
Blockout Roman Blinds fall to completely exclude light, and are suitable for rooms where complete privacy is required, and for rooms used for viewing screens. On the other hand our Light Filtering Roman Blinds reduce but do not eliminate incoming light, while still providing a good measure of seclusion. Both kinds of blind will give useful reductions in the amount of heat your rooms accumulate, making your air conditioning do less work and saving you money.
Fabric Choice – Roman Blinds are an aesthetic blend of crisp outlines, contrasting with the texture, and the fall and fold, of fine fabrics. OzBlinds has chosen fabrics which make the most of this pleasing visual tension. We have a large variety of colours, and a select variety of fabrics. As fabric colours and textures may vary slightly from their appearance on your screen, we do advise our customers to obtain from us a fabric sample, before completing their order.
Roman Blinds features
One of the most appealing features of good Roman Blinds is their lightness and ease of use. Lift and descent is controlled by a simple cord or chain system. When raised, the blind gathers the fabric into pleats which may be either flat or teardrop shaped. In either case the blind retains its neat, crisp outline but with a soft, layered effect that is just stunning to look at. And, to protect the kids, all our blinds come with a child safety device.
Blinds within our Romans range are precisely made, and need precise installation if they are to look their best. We’ve made installing your Roman Blinds particularly easy with downloadable PDFs giving clear, step-by-step instructions that make it easy to get a professional looking result. No special tools are required – just a level, a drill and a screwdriver.
Since one of the chief purposes of these types of blinds is to exclude harmful UV radiation, it’s important that they themselves by highly tolerant of strong UV light. UV light damages furniture, floors and fabrics by striking them and turning into heat – the so-called “greenhouse” effect. Just like sunburn on human skin, this process of turning UV light into lower frequency light and heat tends to degrade the material in which it takes place, bleaching it and in some cases making it brittle. The exterior surfaces of our blinds are treated with a UV resistant coating which protects both the blind and your room from harmful rays.
