Easy to care for, roller blinds are perfect for minimalist interiors as they almost disappear when they’re up. Choose the roller blind that works best for the room: regular, sunscreen or heavy-duty block out blinds.
Sunscreen & Sheer Roller Blinds
Banish the harsh glare but keep your view with our sunscreen and sheers blind collection. These blinds will give you complete privacy during the day. For privacy in the evening, add a second blind on a double roller system. Our wide range of colours will suit any interior décor.
If you want both privacy and light, add a translucent roller blind to your living area. These are particularly good for south-facing rooms that often benefit from additional light.
Double Roller Blinds
Double roller blind systems provide day and night privacy and glare reduction. Roll down a sunscreen fabric roller blind for day time use. At night, bring down a second blind in block out or privacy fabric for additional light reduction and privacy. Quality is assured through tests on the fabric and rolling mechanism of every blind. Classic Blinds & Shutters uses only the world’s best components. A strong aluminium tube supports the fabric for long term reliability.
Block Out Roller Blinds
When you don’t want the early sun disturbing you at 5am, choose from our popular block out roller blind range. These blinds not only block sunlight and glare, but the reflective white lining also provides superior heat insulation.
Retractable roller blinds are perfect for doorways. They are non-intrusive and can even be linked together across wide doorways to minimise chains.
