Your Questions – Roman Blind Control Mechanism

November 11th, 2014 in All About Blinds

UPDATE: Our roman blinds now come with a Deluxe Perfect Raise headrail and endless loop sidewinder control system as standard! Sounds complicated? Check back this Sunday and we’ll tell you all about it! And if you really can’t wait, visit our roman blinds page where you’ll be able to see just what we mean.


One of the most commonly asked questions we get is about our roman blinds.

As there are so many variations of the mechanisms used to raise and lower these blinds, you don’t always know exactly what it is that you’re getting.

Thanks to Mary-Ann for bringing it to our attention – here’s a quick guide to our roman blind mechanism!

Mary-Ann asked:

“Do your roman blinds come with a cord or a chain to lift them?”


We answered

All our roman blinds come with a cord lock mechanism.

The answer alone may not be overly helpful, so we thought’s we’d add a couple of pictures to show you exactly what we mean.

All our roman blinds are supplied with a nylon cord-lock system that is positioned just behind the fabric to keep it hidden and out of view.


These mechanisms also lock automatically when you use them, meaning that you can have the raised half way and held in place without the need for a cleat.

However, if you have young children we do still supply a safety cleat that allows you to keep the cord secured safely out of reach.


If you’d rather have a continuous chain, we are able to check the availability of an upgrade for you – if you give us a call and let us know which material you’re interested in and the size of your blind, we’ll certainly check with production and see if we’re able to offer you one of our deluxe perfect-raise mechanism upgrades.
