All fabrics shown under Blockout Roller Blinds are 100% blockout.
Always keep in mind that due to the nature of Roller Blinds, a small amount of light, will still enter into the room from the top & sides. This is considered minimal and doesn't detract from the overall effectiveness of this product.
Width & Drop Dimensions -
If the fabric does not show in the range selection after you enter your measurements, this indicates that it is not available at the entered size.
2700 Blinds Express Fabrics
2400 Blinds Express Fabrics
No warranty can be offered on blinds over the measurements in the table above.
Some fabric restrictions may apply. Widths over 2500 may not have a drop exceeding 2300, Click on individual fabrics for further details.
All Blinds over 2700 width are considered oversized. Due to the nature of roller blinds and not being able to have a central/support bracket, they run the risk of a slight ripple in the cloth. We consider this to be standard for these sizes and it is not considered detrimental to the operation and effectiveness of this product. Therefore we would not accept a warranty claim against this aspect of the blind.
Roll Direction -
Back Rolled – Cloth comes off the back of the roller, close to the glass, away from the room. This is the preferred way to maximise insulation and better light control, also considered standard in the industry. Not recommended for back coated fabrics, as the white will be showing on the top of the roll.
Front Rolled – Cloth comes forward off the roller, away from the glass, into the room. This is ideal for when you have obstructions such as, window winders and door handles. This method also hides the roller and creates a valance finish. Not recommended for face fitted blinds, due to the increased gap down the side of the bind, with the exception of corner windows. Highly recommended for white back coated fabrics.
You will require a depth of 60mm, for the blind to sit neatly inside the frame
Minimum depth 30mm - this will result in the blind slightly projecting out of the recess.
Make sure to select back rolled fabric when depth is limited.
Our factory deducts 5mm from the width for the blind to fit correctly. Do not make this deduction yourself, provide window measurement only.
Recess blinds will have a small gap of cloth either side, due to the chain drive and pin end cap fittings.
Brackets can be should be mounted into the roof of the recessed frame, or to the sides for tight fits only.
Do not provide cloth measure when ordering, provide window measurements only
Face Fit Projection -
80mm. May vary slightly depending on thickness of fabric.
Express blinds are made to the same schematics as the ICM roller blinds
We deduct 5mm from recess width to allow the blind to fit within the frame and to operate correctly.
If you require total glass coverage and want to reduce the visible side gaps, we recommend you order Face fitted and not Recessed blinds.
! Cloth Measurements
Important: Blinds Online will not be responsible for any customer ordering cloth measurement, as this will cause the blind not to fit the window. We only work with the finished size, which includes the brackets (total width).
We require total width measurement of your architrave or recess.
Please also understand that under no circumstances will any of the Blinds Online staff accept your cloth measurements and make the additions for brackets for you.
Spring Assist -
For ACM blinds, we include a spring assist into the price of all blinds over the width of 2410 when the drop exceeds 1500.
A spring assist is a tensioning spring inside the roller, which helps wind the blind back up. Allowing your blind to operate more easily, therefore extending the life of your blind.
Aluminium roller tube sizes -
Due to roller blinds being supported by brackets at each end of the blind, we only use the best available tubing on the market. All blinds over set sizes have the strengthened tube for added support to prevent sagging in the centre of the blind.
Upto 2100mm 38mm standard tube
2100mm and over 45mm - Heavy Duty (includes spring assist on widths over 2400mm with drops exceeding 1500mm)
All widths have a 45mm tube – Super Heavy Duty (includes a spring assist on widths over 2400mm with drops exceeding 1500mm)
Base Rails - Our base rails are a oval tear drop shape (Elliptical). We find this shape better than the older style round base rails, as sit closer to the architrave, and help eliminate size restrictions on recess depths.
Note: ACM & ICM base rails differ slightly in size and colour. We do not recommend having both styles in the same room due to the subtle differences.
Decorator Base Rails - are available for our ACM blinds only. The rail is has elegant bevelled edges,40mm height and a heavier weight, which is ideal for keeping tension on light weight fabrics.
The price can be seen in the Design & Order section of the Optional Extras after entering your measurements and selecting a ACM fabric.
Chain Control Sides -
You have the ability to select the control side that best suits you. This is easily worked out as the side that is best, whilst standing facing the window.
Chain Lengths -
ICM Blinds- All chains are 1 metre long. If you would like longer, please let us know
ACM Blinds- Chain length varies depending on the drop of the blind. See below
If you require a different length for either ACM or ICM, just let us know in the comments field when ordering.

3 Day Express - Blinds are custom made within 3 business days. They are available for selected fabrics only. This is a fully custom made product, made with your selection of blind width, base rail colours, chain colours, bracket colours.
The cloth is pre-cut in drops of 1500 & 2400, to enable the speed in production. You will be supplied either of the two drops listed above, relevant to your length. As the blind does not require you to roll it down past your window drop/length, the extra cloth on the roller will not be a hindrance.
Due to high volume of sales of this product, from time to time we can experience unexpected stock delays, which may increase the 3 day express manufacturing time. Orders will be contacted at the earliest possible convenience, to notify of any unexpected delays.
Multiple Blinds on the one window
When adding multiple blinds to a large window, we offer 3 options;
- Easy Link Multi - The blinds are connected with a easy join bracket, allowing the blinds to operate in unison from one chain controller. The cloth gap is reduced to approximately 20mm's.
- Easy Link Dual - The blinds are connected with a easy join bracket and operate independently with their own chain controller. The chains will be on the outer side of each blind. The cloth gap is reduced to approximately 20mm's.
- Butted Blinds - These blinds are ordered as individual blinds, and the brackets butt flush to each other. They operate independently with chains on the outer side. The cloth gap is approximately 30mm's.
Easy Join Butted Blinds
Easy Join Cloth Gap - 20mm's approx. Butted Blinds Cloth Gap - 30mm's approx
To order Easy Join, select multi link in the optional extras of the Design & Order.
Valances - Optional Extra
Adding a valance to face mounted roller blinds must be done at time of ordering and cannot be done at a later stage. This is due to the blind width being slightly reduced by 8mm's to allow for the valance brackets to be mounted flush with the outside edge of the architraves. Valances are only suitable for face mounted blinds and not available for recess mounts.
Chain Tidy – Child Safety Regulation -
All roller blinds are supplied with a chain tidy. This device is hooked through the loop of the chain and secured to the wall or window frame, reducing the opening for the loop and keeping it out of harms way. It is Law in all states that our customers fix this device to their roller blind chains to prevent the risk of strangulation.
Important. When ordering multiple blinds to butt together on a single window or door, the central blind/blinds must have a point to secure the chain tidy. If this is not possible, then we recommend that you order a multi link system (for ACM blinds only) to eliminate the central chains or order the central blind/blinds with shortened chain/chains that are a minimum of 1.6m off the floor.
Failure to order a Multi Link or have chains <1.6m off the floor when ordering 3 or more butting blinds, will release Blindsonline.com.au from any liability.
All Blinds come with a Child Safety warning label/sticker, please take your time to read through the details supplied to ensure correct application and compliance.
A low flat rate of $25, $35 or $45 per order, depending on your postcode.
