We make traditional roman blinds with a modern twist – a highly energy-efficient thermal core with a unique magnetic edge seal. They are made to measure to fit your windows snugly. They will substantially reduce your heat loss & remove down-draughts from single glazed windows.

They are ideal for a wide range of windows and are particularly suited to Listed Buildings and traditional sash windows where they can usually be fixed to the existing frame or sash-box.

The blinds have a fade-resistant poly cotton lining and a lovely linen effect polyester fabric to the room side in a range of colour options. They have a headrail which uses a modern chain pulley system.  See the photo page for more images and for performance details see the technical information page.

Fabric – The blinds have a fade-resistant poly cotton lining and a linen effect polyester fabric to the room side in a range of colour options. This fabric is a textured quality polyester called ‘Waldorf’, with good drape quality and crease resistance. The range is 10 colours. These are Rose, Red, Terracotta, Cafe, Caramel, Spice, Oyster, Bamboo, Reseda (green), Blue. Samples can be ordered and sent to you. Please note that the photograph is not a reliable colour match and some fabrics may be on long order.

Mechanism – The blinds have an aluminium headrail which uses a modern chain pulley system.  The STANDARD headrail is 42mm deep & 100mm high, and can be used for blind widths from 360mm wide and comes with a plastic chain as standard (this hangs parallel to the glass). The DELUXE headrail (42mm deep x 60mm high) can be used for blind widths from 450mm, and is more robust. It comes with a plastic chain as standard (this hangs perpendicular to the glass). See picture here.

For both types a nickel, chrome or brass chain can be supplied but the exact length of the loop will need to be determined. A more robust winder mechanism with a 1:4 ratio can be used for large blinds over around 2 sq.m.

Fixings – The headrail fixes with small brackets which can usually be screwed into your existing window frame. Sometimes a small wooden frame may be needed to fix in the correct location. Photos of your frames should be emailed before ordering to discuss this. The blind ‘sticks’ to your existing window using self-adhesive (strong) magnets, which you fix once you are happy that the blind is hanging correctly. See the download section for typical fixing details.

    Good evening,

    Your blinds seem to match our requirement to fight heat loss in an old house. Could you send us your samples of fabrics (different rooms to fit) and plastic & metal chains?
    Please email me back and I will send you my address.

    Kind regards,

    Beatrice Mallett

    Hi Beatrice, I will email you. Normally I request an email with a photo or two of your windows so I can let you know if the blinds would be suitable in your location & exactly how they would fix in that location. I will also need some dimensions & then can let you have prices and samples.
