Care & Maintenance Guide – Roller Blinds

Regular dusting of the blind fabric will ensure no build up of dust & grime occurs. For a deeper clean, we recommend professional cleaners using ultrasonic cleaning methods as any other form of washing of the blinds is not recommended. SP Screens uses the latest guillotine, crush and ultrasonic fabric cutting tools depending on the type of fabric. We do not side hem any fabrics so caution must be taken when operating blinds to avoid rubbing which may cause fraying or other damage. With normal operation of a cord or chain operated blind, other than cleaning there should be NO circumstance where anything should come in contact with the fabric of the blind. Should you notice any instance where your blinds do appear to be rubbing on anything, you must report this to SP Screens immediately so preventative action can be taken. Fraying or any other damage caused by the blind rubbing against anything is not covered by warranty.

Warranty – Roller Blinds

  • Tube, Tracks Mechanisms
    3 Years
  • Fabric
    2 Years

Blinds over 2400mm wide and or 2200mm in height are not warranted against bagging of the fabric, a bow in the tube causing veeing, tracking and fraying.

Mounting Options - Forward Roll or Backward Roll?

As with most blinds, where you mount your roller blinds can make a huge difference to the overall look and function. Roller blinds can be mounted inside the window frame, or outside the window frame.

Inside mount refers to blinds fixed inside the window reveal. Outside mount describes when the blinds are fixed outside the window to the architrave or wall.

Some blinds are better suited to one method over the other. Obstructions in the window, such as locks, latches and mullions can also determine the best mounting method.

There are two basic manufacturing methods for roller blinds; Forward Roll where the fabric rolls forward over the tube and Backward Roll where the fabric rolls back behind the tube - Click the links below to read more about each of the available options.

  • Inside Mount Backward Roll

    Advantages

    • Able to be mounted close to the glass minimising light gap.
    • Dust and fade lines remain at the back of the blind.
    • Easy access to the control chain.

    Disadvantages

    • The adjustment to allow for the brackets inside the frame means there is a gap on the sides of the blind. This is negated to some degree because the fabric is close to the glass.
    • The fabric rolling backwards means the back of the fabric is visible at the roll. This is not a big deal but must be considered on a backed fabric where the backing is a different colour. A pelmet could be suggested as a remedy to this situation.
  • Inside Mount Forward Roll

    Advantages

    • The fabric rolling forward means the roll is covered by the fabric.

    Disadvantages

    • Because the fabric is further away from the glass there is more light gap at the sides of the blind.
    • Should the blind be left up for any period of time a dust and fade line may appear across the blind.
    • The control chain will be behind the blind making it more difficult to operate.
    • With the control chain being behind the blind the user will rub the edge of the blind during operation possibly causing fraying. Fraying in this instance would be classed as wear and tear and will not be covered by warranty.
  • Outside Mount Backward Roll

    Advantages

    • Able to be mounted close to the window minimising light gap.
    • Able to be mounted past the window opening minimising light gap.
    • Dust and fade lines remain at the back of the blind.
    • Easy access to the control chain.
    • Outside mount, backward roll provide the most coverage.

    Disadvantages

    • The fabric rolling backwards means the back of the fabric is visible at the roll. This is not a big deal but must be considered on a backed fabric where the backing is a different colour. A pelmet could be suggested as a remedy to this situation.
  • Outside Mount Forward Roll

    Advantages

    • The fabric rolling forward means the roll is covered by the fabric.

    Disadvantages

    • Because the fabric is further away from the glass there is more light gap at the sides of the blind even if the blind is mounted past the window opening. Should the blind be left up for any period of time a dust line may appear across the blind.
