Roller Blind Fabric Run Off

When fixing Roller Blinds be careful they are fitted level or some Fabric Run Off can be created, if not resolved it can damage to blind.

This is where the fabric moves sideways on the tube as it rolls up and can cause the fabric to become damaged.

  1. It is unadvisable to buy a Roller Blinds that is more than where the drop is more than 2.5x the drop, as this substantially increases the chance of the fabric running off.
  2. When selecting fabrics for a Roller Blind try to avoid very thick fabrics as they are not very limp and may not roll up evenly.
  3. When fixing Roller Blinds ensure they are relatively level as gravity will then help hold the fabric straight and taught when they are rolled up.

If you have followed these tips and you still have an issue there are two fallbacks.

  • Unroll the fabric completely and stick a piece of masking tape on the tube to alter the way it is rolling, this may take a bit of trial and error.
  • If that has not worked then the only other alternative is to manually dress the blind then rolling it up by gently pulling the bottom bar straight.
