ROLLER BLINDS - SIZE PARAMETERS

Overview

In general, the wider the roller blind - the bigger the diameter of the barrel. The following components will be used for roller blinds according to size:

  • Up to 2 metres wide - Louvolite System 32 (32mm)
  • 2 - 2.5 metres wide - Louvolite System 40 (40mm)
  • 2.5 - 3 metres wide - Louvolite System 45 (45mm)
  • 3 - 4 metres wide - Benthin heavy duty system (52/65mm)

However fabric weight and the drop of the blind are also factors in determining the components to be used.

These figures have been supplied by Louvolite with fabrics indicating fabric weight.
