Change Builders Range Roller Blind From Back Roll to Front Roll

By Betta Blinds and Awnings - 5th December 2022
This applies to our Builders Range Roller Blinds. If you have a Standard Range Roller Blind you can check out this guide instead.

This technique only works for fabrics without a backing such as Vibe or Duo Screen. If you need to do back to front with a fabric that has a backing you will need to use the technique used on Standard Range Roller Blinds. 

What is a Front Roll Roller Blind?

In a Front Roll Roller Blind the fabric rolls off the front of the tube. This means that the fabric is further away from the window. 

Remove the Blind from the Brackets

1. Retract the idle end of the Roller Blind and remove it from the brackets
2. Remove the chain drive and idle end pin from the tube
