New Release Soft Drop Romans

Soft Drop chain control operating system. Effortless operation. Just a simple pull on the chain automatically lowers the blind, in a quiet, smooth gliding action. Lightweight aluminium components are resistant to corrosion giving strength and durability.

Minimum Width 900mm.  Updated Price List attached

Roman blinds can be fitted over the window (face fit) to achieve an extremely good block-out solution for bedrooms. When fitted to the face of the window and allowing extra width, a reasonable block out can be achieved that will minimise light entering the room.  Please note that 100% block out cannot be achieved. Typically, if a full blockOUT system is required, most customers choose a roller blind with side channels.



Classic Style: Aluminium battens are splined into the back of the fabric. Batten is not visible from the front and there are no stitching holes. (see image below left)

Plantation Style: Timber battens are visible at the front and rear of the blind (see image left)

Mode Style: Aluminium Battens are visible at the front and rear of the blind (see image below right).

Note: A Roman Blind requires time to ‘settle in’ and may appear short in its drop on installation. However, over a short period of time the fabric will relax and sit at the correct drop length. Fabric types and environmental conditions can also impact on the settling in process.


Please note: There is a 10mm gap on the Chain Control side to enable chain operation. (white headbox will be perceptible unless a Pelmet option is selected).

Many windows in old and new buildings are not square. It is essential the measurements provided are accurate for the blinds to fit correctly. Use a good tape measure (metal ones are best) and measure down to the nearest mm. We recommend you also view our You Tube videos for tips on measuring and installing.  Click on You Tube icon at bottom of this newsletter to go direct to our videos.  You can also link direct to our website and to our Facebook page by clicking on icons below.

LEAD TIMES: Please plan for additional lead times for orders in Louvolite fabrics The average lead time for the fabric to arrive here is 6-10 days. However there have been a number of instances where the fabric has taken much longer due to shipping from the UK.  We recommend that you follow up ahead of time to get an update on lead times to keep your customer informed.  We always endeavour to keep customers up to date with any delays once they are known to us.  We are not always informed by the supplier of potential delays and only find out when the fabric has not arrived in time for the scheduled job.
