Types and designs of rolet
Roller blinds are a system that represents a cut of material that is wound onto a shaft. In this case, the roll may be open or hidden in the box.
From here comes two device names: free-hanging and cassette fabric roleta.
With the open version of the fabric roll wound on the shaft, not hiding in the cassette. This type of roller blinds on plastic windows, which, by the way, can also be used on wooden frames, although it is cheaper, has some drawbacks.

- inability to use on the skylights.
Cassette roller blinds are a design where the shaft with the wound fabric is hidden in the box, which can be installed both on the whole window and on each leaf separately, as well as on the ceiling.
To control the roller blinds used:
Manual mechanism with a chain cord, which is placed on request on one side of the canvas. It allows you to fix the level of the curtains at any height.
Electronic control using remote control - this adjustment by means of an electric drive. The remote view is used mainly where manual control is difficult, for example, if the mechanism is arranged high on the ceiling or the windows are of considerable size.
This system is very convenient, but it is reflected in the cost of the finished design.
The price is also influenced by the quality indicators of fastening materials, cassettes and guide mechanisms.
The price also includes a fabric that can be dense or transparent, monophonic or colored, natural or synthetic.
In addition to a variety of canvases, there is another type - these are day-night blinds, which are a combination of two strips of fabric.
