There are several types of mechanisms for blinds, each one adapted to your needs, whether functional or decorative. The blinds, apart from being beautiful, create a sense of tranquility and level the environments.
The blinds are practical and functional, since they have several mechanisms to lower and raise them that can be manual or electronic. These systems also have devices that are connected remotely, allowing for greater comfort and efficiency.
The blinds are not only modern and practical, but in addition to regulate the entry of direct sunlight when not needed, also protect against viruses, dust or external substances that can harm health.
When installing the blinds are easy and very simple to lower and for cleaning, in addition to giving a modern touch to the new decorative trends of recent times. Their operation has been adapted to technological advances, even allowing them to operate remotely.
Rope blind mechanism
The cord blind is one of the most widely used. Traditionally, its operation is based on a thin rope that rolls the winding or unfolding mechanism of the fabric, allowing to control its height and therefore the entrance of light.
This mechanism comes inside the blind base system which is placed at installation and does not require any electrical connection, adjustment of the start and end winding measurements or remote coding.
The cord is regularly made of white nylon and comes with a counterweight. They are also widely used to disguise the manual mechanism that raises or lowers the blind. Although they are very beautiful and decorative, it must be taken into account that the system of this blind is visible.
Its operation is very simple, since it is enough to pull the cord to raise the fabrics and give a little pull forward to stop and adjust the ideal size. To lower it, it works in the same way.
Chain blind mechanism
It has the same principle as the string blind, only instead of a rope, it is a chain made mostly of plastic beads or spheres that attach to the base of the blind to wind or unwind it.
This difference between these blinds is purely aesthetic, since for some people the design of a chain blind can be decoratively more functional than the rope. To lower or raise it, it is pulled to one side or the other, lowering and raising as needed.
The chain mechanism is composed of several ribbons attached to the profile of the blind, which are joined by a pulley, which allows the blind to be blocked just the way we want it to be.
Hidden mechanism of the blind
The hidden mechanism is a very functional and beautiful system. Also called AT-500, it is regularly used for more aesthetic purposes, as the roller blind winding device is located inside an aluminum tube concealing the gears.
On the front of the hidden blind there is a velcro profile that serves as a complement that joins the blinds together. This type of hidden mechanism is used for blinds that are folding and those made of fabric, cut to size or those that are used more for decoration.
The hidden mechanism has a U-shaped profile, it also has a safety system for children, since the chain is the only one that is seen and is outside the internal gears. It is very elegant and its prices are very supportive.
Japanese panel mechanism
This blind is also one of the most beautiful, due to the fact that it resembles Japanese curtains. Each gear has a separate blind contained in a velcro profile, which in turn is matched with a number of panels, with some being in front and others behind.
Also the Japanese mechanism blinds are widely used for large areas and offices, as they can have 2, 3 and even 5 ways for each blind panel, which also gives sobriety, elegance and a personal style to the decorative aspects.
The Japanese mechanism blinds come in manual and electronic systems and their placement varies according to taste, which can be with runs from right to left or vice versa. The winding can be by means of a switch or remotely, in the electric case.
