They offer the convent choice of blockout, translucent (light filtering), sunscreen.

Blinds for Bay Windows
Roller blinds can be used in bay windows, however there are a few considerations when deciding if roller blinds are right for your bay windows. In most cases the roller blind will been to be over-rolled, this is to enable the fabric to meet in the corners, but there will be small gaps where the fabric does not meet so if you are a light sleeper then using roller blinds in bay windows might not be the best solution.
Anti ligature, Child Safe Roller blinds
Our soft rise roller blind has a slow-rise principle mechanism, once the blind is released from its ratchet-stop, it will glide slowly and smoothly up to its fully open position and come to rest without that familiar crash. Incorporating the Krestel break away magnetic system the prevents the mechanism being used as a ligature support point detaching depending on the weight applied.
