Our 75mm Square and Round, can be ordered at the same time as roller blinds on our single roller selection page,
We also can supply a C70 cassette which works well with single roller blinds and is a concealed unit meaning light doesn't filtrate the top. Our C70 cassette can be wrapped in most fabrics and also comes in four powder coat colours.Please enquire if you would like to add this range with your single roller blind order.

122 mm Double Roller Blinds 160mm Linea Fascia
For corner pelmets deduct these measurements once from the tight corner to corner measurement on the non leading long blind measurement.Also make the roller blind measurement the same as this deduction.
Our Linea Valances are available in two (2) face sizes 98mm and 140mm.
The actual fabric insert sizes measure approximately 89mm and 127mm. Fabric inserts can complement your blinds as shown in the photo below.

Valances wider than the fabric insert, will be joined on either side evenly with a full width as a centre panel. Please specify if you would like the fabric railroaded to avoid this.
When Linea Valance is face fitted, the Linea Valance is made 20mm larger than the blind size.
If Linea Valance is recess fitted, Linea Valance will be made the same size as internal opening (OBM) Outter Box Measurement. Refer to our measurement instruction on the pelmet selections page, width input (tooltip) for guidance.
Our Bonded Pelmets are made using MDF or timber boxes that are wrapped with a Blockout fabric only of your choice.
We cannot supply a bonded pelmet using Duo Block,Vibe,Icon Fr and Urban Shade.Please consider this prior to choosing your roller blind fabrics.
There are two important choices with pelmets face size and projection. The face and projection sizes are provided as options on our pelmet selections page as in drop down.

If Pelmet are wider than the fabric width, the fabric will be wing joined with a centre panel, otherwise you need to specify if you would like it railroaded.
Bonded Pelmets provide you a softer look over your blinds. The next best thing to Padded Pelmets but more economical.
