What is the reason for the popularity of Double Roller Blinds in Melbourne?

Summer holidays & the end of a school term bring back to me the gorgeous memories of fun & gay abandon with siblings, friends, relatives, and the rest of the family. None watched the clock, save for your Dad, who would have to go to work. Mom too used to be so joyful. Her face was forever beaming, planning out your favourite menus. Late brunches, picnics, long cycle rides, summer clubs and a lot of ice-cream. One vital chore was a must! All of you had to get together & clean up the loft. Invariably your projector, a gift to you for one Christmas, would leave the storage. By rotating the disc of slides, you would lose yourselves in an ancient fairy-tales world. Your bedroom would turn into a makeshift cinema hall. Pulling down the Double Roller Blinds in Melbourne and throwing some additional sheets on to your windows was all you needed. Such thrill and excitement! You talk to your kids about it today, and it sounds out of date to them. Today is the day of multiplex cinemas, X-box, and a click on the remote control can turn your family room into show time. What a far cry from the blinds and shades you operated with the help of springs!

What makes Double Roller Blinds in Melbourne work?


  • Roller tube – the fabric of the double roller shade rolls around it & is never exposed, even when the shade is wholly lowered.
  • End plug – also called the ‘rotator’, it fits into the end of the ‘roller tube’ opposite the ‘clutch’ and allows the tube to rotate freely. The ‘rotation pin’ on the plug fits into the ‘installation bracket’.

  • Clutch – When the ‘cord’ is pulled the ‘clutch’ rotates the roller tube, lowering or raising the shade.

  • Beaded cord – A continuous loop that is utilized to raise and lower the Double Roller Blinds in Melbourne.

  • Beaded cord connector – The connector fixes the two ends of a ‘beaded cord’. Each connector serves as a ‘stop’ for both the upper & lower travel limits.

  • Cord tensioner – For enhanced child & pet safety, and to make sure that the chains aren’t a choking hazard, a ‘tensioning device’ is provided. It locks the ‘chain’ so that it cannot be ‘unthreaded’. It doesn’t have to be tight, just taut enough to create a loop. Cord tensioners are important for Double Roller Blinds in Melbourne. It is screwed to an ‘architrave’, and then screwed to the tensioner. Without a ‘tensioner’, loose chains have to be secured so that they don’t form a loop of 220 mm or 1600 mm above the floor level and can’t be undone by any child.

  • Cassette mounting brackets – these are used to mount shades from the top (the ceiling mount) or from the back (the wall mount).

  • End cap – this covers the end bracket for a tidy, coordinated look.
  • Bottom rod or rail – adds weight to the fabric.
