Roller Blinds By First Choice Blinds

At it’s most basic, this style of blind is simply a squared sheet of fabric, attached to a roller tube, and is restricted to being either raised or lowered, stopping at intermediate positions with a spring or chain control.

Even so, it’s the most popular selling style of all time, offering what we all desire – simplicity! Check out our site www.firstchoiceblinde.ie or give us a call on 01-4416366

Roller blinds take up very little space inside windows,and can be rolled up to a very small unnoticeable size.

They can be made at very small widths, right up to large 3 metres wide heavy-duty units they can also be motorised

There is pretty much a fabric available for every situation. Standard fabric,screen fabric blackout fabric.

Costs for roller blinds are very cheap when compared to other types of blind covering the same area.

Roller blinds from First Choice Blinds are finished either straight at the bottom, or with some decorative finish such as a Scallop (shape) or Turret (pole).

Eyelets are also now available for a more contemporary look, with more and more new and exiciting finishes being added to our website all the time.

Mechanisms – The quality of the mechanism is the critical component that will determine how long your blind lasts thats why we use the best on the market.

We don’t sell anything that’s of a poor quality. We offer excellent value for money, for outstanding products and a 12 month guarantee on all our blinds.

BENEFITS of roller blinds by First Choice Blinds

  • Roller blinds take very little space up inside a recess, and do not have to be lowered all the way to the window sill, leaving a lot of usable space on the sill.
  • Roller blinds by First Choice Blinds provide excellent privacy to sensitive rooms such as bedrooms and lounge areas.
  • Fabrics can be chosen to achieve a specific objective, such as:
    • Allowing light to penetrate whilst giving full privacy
    • Dimming-out a bedroom from early morning light
    • Deflecting heat and glare from sunny rooms and conservatories
    • Providing a ‘net’ effect during the day (allowing you to see out, but people can’t see in)
      • Note: this type of fabric will not provide privacy at night time when the lights are on.)
      • Check out our site www.firstchoiceblinds.ie for more options
  • Roller blinds are extremely cost effective when compared to other window coverings
  • The fabric is easy to replace . Once the fabric becomes undesirable, the fabric can be removed from the roller, and changed for another cloth.  This reduces the cost of the blind, but also eliminates the installation cost altogether.
  • Fabrics from First Choice Blinds are available for both a classic look, and a modern look.
  • Robust heavy usage mechanisms guarantee a long life for the blind or motorised option.
PRODUCT OPTIONS From First Choice Blinds

  • Scallop finishes or no sew provide a decorative look, which is always on show, even when the blind is pulled up.
    • A scallop finish comes with a choice of braids, or can be left plain.
  • Turret finishes are like a scallop finish, but come with a bottom bar/pole finish
    • Poles are available in many wood and metal finishes.
    • A turret finish comes with a choice of braids, or can be left straight.
  • Eyelets are a recent style in roller blinds.
  • Blinds are usually finished with a straight edge.
  • Eyelets are then placed along the bottom section of the blind to add a very modern tidy looking finish.
    • Eyelets are available in two sizes, and two colours of each size (brass and chrome)
  • Reverse roll / Standard Roll from First Choice Blinds
    • Standard roll – this is the traditional method of rolling a roller blind, where the fabric falls from the back of the roller.
    • Reverse roll – this method of manufacture has become more popular since the widespread installation of Pvc windows.
    • The handles of the Pvc windows usually project about 40mm from the frame.
    • By using a reverse roll instead of the standard, the fabric can clear the handle without obstruction.
    • This also allows the blind to be fixed to the window frame for a level fixing.
    •   By fixing in this way, the blind can be installed closer to the window frame (as recommended).
CONTROL OPTIONS By First Choice Blinds

  • A Sidewinder control allows millimetre precision in control, and allows blinds which are positioned next each other to be lined up perfectly.
    • Sidewinder control can be positioned to the left or right
    • Sidewinders can be fitted with either a chrome nickel-plated ball chain, or a plastic ball chain (brown/white/grey).
      • please check the individual specification of the blind you are ordering to check which chain colour the blind comes with for more on this check out our site www.firstchoiceblinds.ie or give us a call on 01-4416366
  • A spring pull is the traditional method of operation for a roller blind, however, it is not recommended since operation of the blind is considerably more difficult that when operated with a side chain.
    • Spring rollers have an option of either a light wood or dark wood pull toggle. Special pulls are available at an additional cost.
  • A sidewinder operated blind can have a wooden pull toggle for decoration if required, however, the customer must not pull the blind from the toggle, as it may damage the sidewinder mechanism.
  • Electric operation is now available for more on this go to www.firstchoiceblinds.ie
BRACKET OPTIONS From First Choice Blinds

  • All roller blind brackets can be fixed either: top. Side or face fix. Face fixing or top fixing is recommended.
  • Powder coated bracket are available for some products.
    • please check the specification of the product you are interested in.
  • Metal brackets are available for some products.
    • please check the specification of the product you are interested in.
  • Extended metal brackets.
  • This bracket has the same look as the standard metal bracket, but projects the blind even further from the wall.
  • It is used to clear obstacles such as large window or door handles, where a reverse roll would not be suitable.
LIMITATIONS for roller blinds

  • Minimum and maximum sizes (this information is general. Please check the specification of the product you are interested in for more information)
    • The minimum size for a roller blind is 100mm for a sidewinder-operated blind.
    • It must be pointed out however, that a blind of 100mm wide cannot be expected to operate normally, since it has no weight.  Roller blinds will oper ate normally from approx 400mm wide for a smooth finish flexible fabric. Stiffer and thicker fabrics make the rolling of the blind a little more difficult to achieve smoothly.
    • The maximum size for a roller blind is 2450mm wide on a standard 32mm roller tube.  Blinds over this size usually have up-rated mechanisms, and are therefore going to be more expensive, and will take up more space in the recess.
    • The maximum recommended size is 3000mm wide.  Anything over this size needs special application consideration.
    • The minimum size for a roller blind with a spring mechanism is 350mm approx. and the maximum is the same as that for a sidewinder mechanism.
  • The size limitations will almost certainly depend on the tube diameter of the blind.
  • Thin tubes cannot support large blinds. Each product page will tell you this information, and also the max and min sizes available.

  • Bay Windows
    • Roller Blinds are very suitable for bay windows.
  • Bedroom
    • Blackout fabrics will help provide an 80% blackout effect if there are no other curtains in the windows.
  • Lounge
    • Not recommended for sliding patio doors, unless the blinds are to be mounted above the recess, or if the customer understands that the blinds will have to be pulled up to get in and out of the doorway.
    • Also, blinds with scallops or turret may take as much as 200mm from the overall height of the recess
    • Really good for FRENCH DOORS.
    • Usually, we would fit the blind to the door itself, so that when the door is opened, the blind goes with it. This means you don’t have to pull the blind up every time you want to get out of the door.
  • Study
  • Conservatory
    • Usually fitted to the Pvc frame of the conservatory, and manufactured with a reverse roll (of the front of the roller) to clear the window handles.
    •   On opening doors (excluded sliding doors), the blind is usually manufactured with a standard roll (off the back of the roller) so that the fabric goes behind the door handle.
  • Kitchen
    • Best fitted close to the window, leaving as much of the sill space as useable as possible.
  • Bathroom
    • If a blind is going to get damp, then a fabric that is coated for moisture resistance should be chosen.
    •   If the blind is going to get wet from shower or bath splashing, then a soft Pvc fabric should be chosen, such as those from the ‘easy wipe’ range.
  • Dining Room
  • Utility Room
    • Inward opening doors
      • Often, we find that utility room doors that open inwards (if inside a recess) do not have a lot of space behind the door when it is fully open. Ideally, you should have a space of 50mm between the door and the recess wall when the door is opened at 90 degrees.
      • IF you do not have this space, then it may mean your door will have restricted opening when the blind is fitted to it. In this case, you may wish to consider fitting a door stop to prevent he blind being damaged if you open the door too far, or take a look at our PERFECT FIT roller blinds, which fit into the beading of the door glass.
