Choice of Chain

Our Chain Operated Rapid Roller Blinds come in a choice of nine stylish chain colours:
  • Satin Nickel
  • Raw Brass
  • Black Nickel
  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Acid Brass
  • Grey Nickel
  • Antique Brass
  • White Plastic.

Idler End & Fitting

On the opposite end of our drives, you will find the Idler End, which is inserted into the blind tube. Our Idler ends have a special mechanism which you can rotate clockwise to remove the blind or  rotate anti-clockwise to attach the blind to the bracket. This works by exposing and retracting the metal  bar in the idler drive that slots into the end bracket, giving a secure fit and easy assembly every time.

Direction of Roll

Whether you prefer a forward direction roller blind or a backward direction roller blind, Tulip Blinds can manufacturer your blind to either specification that meets your needs. This applies to both our Chain Driven and Motorised Rapid Roller Blinds.

Wide Range of Fabrics

We offer a wide range of fabrics to choose from. We stock blind fabrics that are Transparent, Translucent, Fire Retardant, Blackout, or Screen. Our fabrics are available across 4 different price bands.

Price Band 1 — Our Transparent and Translucent Ranges.

Price Band 2 — Our Opaque, Fire Retardant and Blackout Ranges.

Price Band 3 — Our Fire Retardant with Blackout Ranges.
Price Band 4 — Our Screen Fabric Ranges.

Fabric Options

At Tulip Blinds, we provide a range of Roller Blind Fabrics that best suit your needs. As with all roller blinds, light seepage can occur between the blind and the window frame, depending on the window and fittings used.
Below is a guide to help you choose the right fabric for your blind:

  • Transparent Fabrics are ideal for cutting down ambient light but not completely blocking your outdoor visibility.
  • Translucent Fabrics allow full privacy and reduce (but not block out) ambient light.
  • Blackout Fabrics allow full privacy and eliminate almost all ambient light.
  • Screen Fabrics offer some daylight with partial transparency, depending on the mesh size and fabric.

If you have any queries on any of our fabrics, please feel free to contact us.

Choice of Bottom Bar

We offer a choice of Aluminium Bottom Bar Rails that will beautifully compliment your colour scheme.

Choices include “Matte Black”, “Anodised”, “Anthracite” & “White”

You can also opt for our No-Sew Bottom Bar option, that allows the blind fabric to be encapsulated and wrapped around the bar.

End Caps are provided for each end of the bottom bar, and you can optionally choose from a select range of colours.

Motorised Rapid Roller Blinds

If you prefer not to use a Chain Driven, our motorised Rapid Roller Blinds will offer an elegant touch to the home. Available in a 12V Motor with Battery and 230V Electric Motor, our motorised blinds can calibrated to match your window size.

We use Brel Motors for their reliability and quality and offer a choice of motors that best suit your needs.

Should you need assistance on choosing motorised options before ordering, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Brel Accessories

We also provide a wide range of Brel Accessories for your motorised blind such as chargers, batteries, switches, remotes, hubs, light emitters, solar panels, cables and more. Our Accessories come paired or are compatible  with your motorised blind.

We are happy to provide further advice on what equipment you may need based on your individual needs.
