Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are a subtle yet elegant product, practical for just about any situation and available in a fabric to suit any interior decor and budget. Roller blinds can be motorised or controlled by a chain.


4 Types of Roller Blinds

Nomad Blinds manufactures Roller Blinds in four main categories:

  1. Blockout Roller Blinds - ideal for bedrooms and home cinemas these fabrics block out light and reduce heat, blockout fabrics give you privacy and protect furniture and flooring from sun effects like fading and bleaching.
  2. Translucent Roller Blinds - Ideal for living areas these fabrics reduce light, reduce heat, offer privacy and protect furniture and flooring from sun effects like fading and bleaching. These fabrics are ideal when both privacy and light are wanted but no view is required.
  3. Transparent / Sheer Roller Blinds - Ideal for living areas these fabrics reduce light, reduce heat, offer protection for furniture and flooring from sun effects like fading and bleaching. These fabrics are ideal when light is required, these fabrics also offer limited view through.
  4. Screen / Sheer Roller Blinds - Ideal for living areas these fabrics reduce light, offer heat reduction and glare control while maintaining the view.

All our blinds with varying efficiency reduce the heat as well as stop direct light, to help protect furniture, remove glare from TV and computer screens and help insulate the home during the winter.

Roller Blind Fabrics

Whether you are looking for a Sunscreen fabric which gently filters the light into your room while reflecting heat and glare, or a Transparent / Translucent (privacy) fabric which also allows light in to your room or even Blockout fabric to darken your room and provide privacy while you sleep, we promise that we can find a Roller Blind fabric to suit your situation.

Standard Options Available

Nomad Blinds stocks componentry from Acmeda in its range of Roller Blinds. Acmeda systems are a high quality design and the most popular system in Australia. The Acmeda system is a very highly engineered robust system capable of handling wide spans and awkward corner situations as well as handling standard scenarios with ease.

Couplings Systems

This option is great for a number of different situations as it allows for two blinds to be controlled by one drive system (Chain Clutch or Tubular Motor).

Across wide sliding and bi-fold doors, central unsightly chains can be reduced.

Double Blind Systems (Combo, Duel or day and night)

This option allows you to have two Roller blinds in one window, which is an advantage to those who do not wish to compromise between fabrics. For instance you can opt for a fabric to give complete privacy and block out the sun's light and heat, and another to reduce heat and glare while retaining some natural light and view.

Spring Assisted

On larger blinds the use of motors is advised as the pull force necessary to lift your blind by chain clutch alone can become a little difficult. However if it is not possible to run the necessary wiring for motorisation, then a spring booster can be retro fitted to your chain operated blinds thus reducing the pull force needed to lift larger blinds.
