Cap & Rack Spring Roller


The Cap & Rack Spring Roller is a traditional
design which has been used for many years, but
declined in recent years as it has two design faults
which make it unsuitable for use except in an
environment where it will be used with
considerable care. We do not recommend its use,
unless it is particularly required for historical
accuracy or to match existing blinds.

Problems: The pawl in the cap action is permanently in contact with the
rack as the blind is drawn down, causing clicking noise and resultant wear
in the mechanism. The second problem is when allowing the blind to rise,
the side release cord must be held until it has come to stop. If the cord is
released, the pawl will engage the rack at speed which leads to damage of
the mechanism.
Operation: The blind is drawn by pulling on the centre cord until the
required position is reached (holding down the side release cord during
this procedure is recommended). To raise the blind the side release cord is
pulled allowing the spring to roll the blind up and stop when the cord can
be released. When raising and lowering the blind both cords must be held
to guide the fabric.
Construction: A metal barrel is fitted with nylon end blocks and contains
a helical coil spring. The action has a polished brass cap (always mounted
on the right hand side of a normal roller blind) containing the rack and
pawl lever both in steel.

Way of Roll
Listed below is the standard range of
finishes, trims and pull cords. Please note
that the way of roll will always be assumed
as A unless otherwise stated.

Shaped Blinds
To accommodate shaped openings such as
arched heads or triangular roof panels, in
many cases blinds can be tailored to fit.
Certain Shapes require stiffening ribs to be
included in the blind fabric to hold it in
position. The following diagrams indicate
some of the shapes that can be achieved.

Printing & Painting


A Roller blind provides an excellent medium for displaying art-work of many
kinds. In the commercial world blinds can be silk screened or sign-written
with company logos and advertising material or information such as
position closed on counters etc. Tidmarsh can arrange for any printing or
sign writing to be included on your roller blind

Colours & Finishes


There is a huge range of materials and finishes available for roller blinds.
Tidmarsh supply Fabric: We have our own range of materials available,
please request samples stating your colour preference. The standard
fabric on offer is the Swedish Plain range with over 60 colours. Some of
these are available in a fire retardant finish. Other fabrics used are
Scottish Holland, Dim-out and Blackout for partial or total light
exclusion as well as sunscreen, open weave for sun shading while
maintaining through vision.
Customers own Fabric: We can make roller blinds in your own fabric,
by putting the fabric through a special stiffening or laminating process
(please note a sample of the fabric should be supplied for us to test the
viability of this treatment for each individual fabric, before placing your
final order.
Special Materials: We can use other materials for roller blinds such as
maps for practical reasons, for offices and factories or in fact for fun !
