Difficult to handle
4mm diameter x 3 metres long
Available in small packs right up to bulk quantities these glassfibre 4mm diameter rods are the perfect answer where the folds of roman blinds require unobtrusive but rigid stiffening. Wooden dowels tend to be much too big to keep their straightness and metal (whilst very effective) can be a smidgen expensive.
This leaves us with glassfibre. Handle them with care (preferably wearing light gloves) and they are the perfect answer
If you cut the rods in bulk then wrap masking tape around your cutting point and use a small hacksaw.
However, if you want to cut the rods individually then a rod cutter is the answer. It gives a perfectly clean cut, exactly where you want.
P.S. A customer advise that garden secateurs will do a good job too.
They finish off the job perfectly.
Proving that you have given a lot of thought to those final details
A professional approach
which protects the fabric as well
End caps are available in bulk but also together with pre cut rods.
If it is easier for you then order your rods (and end caps) in pre cut sizes 60cm, 90cm, 120cm, 150cm & 180cm
This is the clever bit.
Our most popular pack size for rods is 10 x 3m.
You will receive a round pack and inside the rods are tied in bundles of two.
Thus just open and use them when required.
Despite being bent into a circle they will straighten perfectly (beware of the whiplash when opening though)
Breakaway safety chain bracket
This is what makes this system so special
The breakaway chain bracket is set up to break under pressure of 5.5kg.
Should a child become entangled then the chain and cog simply break away harmlessly from the main bracket.
There is no permanent damage to child or blind. The cog + chain click back into place and the child is grounded for the week.
To re-install the cog+chain correctly
With every headrail is a shaped trimming block. What you don't want is to cut through the headrail and find your cut is anything but straight..........
The standard headrail sizes are 60cm, 90cm, 120cm, 150cm & 180cm but unfortunately there is rarely a standard window
Thus, if trimming is required.
