Lifting Large Roller Blinds with SPRING ASSIST

Large and linked blinds require the addition of the Spring Assist option to ensure smooth, quiet and easy lifting and to assist with comfortable operation for the user.

Spring Assist is recommended for chain operated roller blinds over 3.6m2 (eg: 2000 x 1800)

Some customers who have ordered large roller blinds have remarked that they are harder to operate.  The solution is a spring assist.  We highly recommend that you select the Spring Assist option which will reduce the weight of lifting larger blinds.

If the spring assist option is not selected these large chain operated roller blinds can be too heavy to operate, in particular for the elderly or frail. ($20 surcharge applies). Please remember to select this option for your large roller blinds orders. Motorised blinds are a great option for the elderly and for child safety purposes.


Important Product and Other Notes


Due to a decision taken by the offshore manufacturer we are disappointed to advise that the extremely popular ZEEBRA fabric is being discontinued.  Unfortunately, once current stock levels run out it will no longer be available.  Please ring and reserve fabric for any Zeebra orders.

Stock is still available, but as orders are coming in thick and fast at present, we recommend that you call before placing your order as stock levels can diminish rapidly. 

We previously advised these two colours had been deleted, however, SOME STOCK IN CHALK AND GRANITE IS STILL AVAILABLE in both Blockout and Light Filtering.  Please remember to call first to see if there is sufficient fabric available for your job.  

Please look to these other beautiful fabrics for that lovely textured look at the same great price: 
Berkley, Le Reve, Mantra, all Category B in Roller Blinds (the same Blockout price as Zeebra).


BACKORDER: Florentine Vertical 127mm Colour Chalk, ETA late November 2015

Price Category Change: Daintree Blockout - refer to new fabric list attached.

Please note: Spring Assist is not available in Sheer Vision Blinds. This info now updated on attached price list.

Please replace the fabric and price lists attached in your Betta price list.  



LouvolitelabelLOUVOLITE FABRICS - Restrictions on Panel Glides & Roman Blinds.

Before ordering Panel Glides please check the label on the fabric swatch to see if the symbol for Panels is there (see image at left - the panel glides symbol is the bottom left one - please be careful to not confuse with the vertical symbol which is just above it in this example).  

If this symbol is not on the swatch for the particular fabric selected, we will not be able to manufacture panels unless battens are selected. If the fabric is unsuitable for battens then Panel Glides will unfortunately not be available.  

It is important you check for the symbol as we have not yet noted all the newer fabrics and this may not be denoted on our fabric list.

Please also note that even though fabrics do have the symbol some still have a tendancy to curl at the edges of the panels.  This can even occur on roller blinds.  Until we manufacture we cannot be certain of all fabric characteristics over various size widths & drops.

Some Louvolite fabrics are not suitable for Mode or Classic style battens as the fabric can be too easily marked during manufacture.  

Please take a moment to understand the symbols on our fabric list:
