Yes, yes, yes … there is more than one mechanism that will move your roller up and down. Veneta Blinds have two main drive control options for you to consider, Smartglide (Chainless) or Chainloop. However, Veneta Blinds Chainloop also has one very special option up its sleeve and we’ll get to that in just a minute.
Perhaps one of the best cordless roller blind systems on the market today. Veneta are proud to offer this unique system as it is simply a case of using the clear plastic tab mounted on the bottom rail to move the blind up or down to the desired position. No tugging or grappling for the blind to move. Simply a finger touch is all that is needed to effortlessly move the blind up or down. Smartglide is unique to Veneta Blinds.
Chainloop is the most common of all options, and one that you’ll notice available across most brands in the market. The blind is lifted by moving a continuous loop of chain, either made from plastic or stainless steel. Our unique system is smooth and provides a consistent feel through the use of spring assisted systems for bigger blinds. Chainloop is popular for hard to reach windows.
Chainloop with Smart Release option
We mentioned that Chainloop has a very special option up its sleeve and here it is! … With one gentle tug of the chain, the blind slowly and consistently rolls down to close off the window opening, all on its own. No electric motors. No magic. Just a smart system that is unique to Veneta Blinds. An additional option available on Chainloop that is becoming very popular with our customers. Imagine walking through your house after a long day and gently touching each chain as you pass by, as every blind in a row, releases to a close.
A word about Roll Direction
Why do we ask to select roll direction? Roll direction decides whether the 'roller' is visible at the top of your blind, or not. Let me explain. Imagine holding up a roll of wrapping paper (like a blind would appear in a window) in front of you and you roll the paper of so the paper rolls off towards the back of the roll. That is called a 'Standard Roll'. Now turn the wrapping paper tube around the other way, so the paper rolls to to front, closest to you. That is called a 'Reverse Roll'.
Which way do you roll?
Standard Roll is for people who like to have the fabric roll as close to the window (reveal fit) as possible or architrave (face fit) as possible, for maximum privacy and light block. In this way, the roll is exposed at the top of the blind. Something to keep in mind is that some of Veneta's fabrics have a white backing, so the back (white) of the fabric is what you will see on the roll at the top of the blind. If you prefer the roll at the top of the blind to be the same as the fabric, then the Reverse Roll option is recommended, however this means the fabric will fall further away from the window.
