Woodweave Blinds

Woodweave blinds, like Woodslat venetian blinds and woodweave Panel blinds, bring a warmth and natural beauty to any environment. Due to the make up of the woodweave fabric, unlike most other blinds, rather than block, they tend to diffuse the light entering the room The manufacture of woodweave blinds is very similar to the manufacture of pleated blinds and are available as Freehanging, Rooflite rectangular and Rooflite shaped.

They are manufactured using the 20mm pleated blind system and have a colour co-ordinated tape along the edge of the blind to finish off the raw edges.. The rails are aluminium, slim-line in appearance and are available in either white or brown powder coated which ensures the rails will match virtually all window profile colours.


The freehanging blind is designed to hang vertically and is available either as Roll up or Roman style. The bottom of the blind can be finished with a colour co-ordinated tape or on Roman style blinds, a matching wooden bottom bar can be used.

Operation - Operation of freehanging woodweave blinds is very similar to venetian blinds. Raising and lowering of the blind is achieved by means of colour co-ordinated pull cords the same as venetian blinds and as with venetian blinds, the woodweave freehanging blind can be locked in any position between fully raised and fully lowered and the cords can be situated at either the left or right side of the blind.


The woodweave roof blind is only available as Roman style and is designed to operate on non vertical areas such as a conservatory roof, Velux type windows and tilt and turn windows. Woodweave roof blinds have three rails, a top rail, middle rail and bottom rail. The top and bottom rail are attached to the top and bottom of the window frame that the blind is to cover. Plastic coated wires are then attached to the top rail, pass through rings attached to the back of the woodweave, through the middle rail and then attached to the bottom rail. The wires are then tensioned between the top and bottom rails. The woodweave is attached to the middle rail and one of the fixed rails depending on which way the blind is to operate. The middle rail then moves between the top and bottom rails along the wires taking the woodweave with it and the tensioned wires hold the fabric against the window surface.

Operation - Operation of woodweave roof blinds is by moving the middle rail up and down along the wires which are tensioned between the top and bottom rails. This is done manually either by hand if the blind is easily accessible or with the assistance of a specially designed pole which fits onto the middle rail if the blind is fitted to somewhere like a conservatory roof which is difficult to reach.

Shaped Rooflite Blinds

Woodweave Roman blinds can be manufactured in a variety of shapes which makes them an ideal blind for conservatory roof areas and therefore offers an alternative to shaped pleated roof blinds.


A wide range of woodweave fabrics are available, some of which are available with a solar reflective backing therefore allowing varying degrees of heat and light control. The benefits of solar reflective backed fabrics are reductions in solar gain and glare within a room during the summer and the reduction of heat loss during the winter.
