Roof Roller Blinds are an alternative option for protecting your conservatory against the sun. We design and make conservatory roof rollers to fit conservatory roofs, but can also can also be adapted for sides, especially with triangular shaped windows.
Solar Plus is a highly efficient material that reflects the sun’s heat during the day and insulates during the night. Hence it is popular, as a choice for conservatory roof roller blinds.
Here are some key features of roof rollers:-
- Simple and well designed.
- Durable, easy to clean and maintenance free.
- Laser cut for maximum accuracy.
- White and Brown components available.
- Motorisation available.
Roof Roller Blinds have always been the traditional choice for conservatory roofs. Originally made in thick, Dutch Holland cotton fabric, they are now made from more modern fabrics, such as Polyester or Acrylic. These are more durable, but they still retain the classic appearance. We recommend Solar R fabric as the best roof roller blind fabric option for conservatory roofs as it provides maximum protection from the sun and insulation during the colder winter months. However, if the Solar R fabric does not fit with your design choices we are happy to offer you a choice from our extensive roller blinds collection.
Roof rollers are supported using metal wires and operated by means of an array of cords, pulleys and cleats. A more convenient method of operation is to use Somfy electric remote control systems. These can even be linked to home automation systems.
One important issue with roller blinds on a conservatory roof, is that any dust or insects that collect on the horizontal top surface of the blind, in between cleans, can be transferred to the face side of the fabric as the blind is rolled up. Naturally this isn’t a problem if your house is spotlessly clean and free from insects!
This cannot happen with pleated blinds as the face side never comes into contact with the reverse side. Pleated Roof Blinds have now largely replaced roof roller blinds.
