Product description

The chain command roller blind is also operated by hand. At the outer edge of the blind, a bead chain is placed on which one pulls the blind in either direction. The chain and the fittings can be ordered in white, light beige or grey plastic as well as in steel. At the bottom edge of the blind, decoration elements such as a round aluminium profile or wooden slat can be placed. Ann Idstein can manufacture Roller Blinds up to a width of approximately 4200mm.

Concept

Ann Idstein has a special relationship to this simple yet brilliant product. In the mid 1970’s, a young Ann Idstein started exporting coloured roller blinds to the German market, creating somewhat of an outrage there. At the time, colours and patterns where rare on the German market and the sudden input of playful Scandinavian fabrics struck the market with surprise. Within less than a year, Ann Idstein’s Roller Blinds where distributed all over Germany, by that time carrying the name Schwedenrollos.

The principle of the Roller Blind is obviously that of a roll. A clear benefit to be drawn from that design is that the product is very compact when rolled up. Ann Idstein offers spring-, chain command- and motorized roller blinds. All types can be fitted to a wall or ceiling. Fabrics range from transparent to black out and there are numerous types of fittings and extras that can add an individual touch to the roller blind.

Depending on the width of the Roller Blind, the tube diameter is changed in order to guarantee stability. Smaller blinds rely on a 30mm tube, whereas the widest ones are produced with a 70mm tube.
