Introducing Dual Rise ...

April 2021

Introducing Dual Rise… A brand new, innovative, and safe by design blind solution that will be an addition to our Professional Roman Blind system.

Child safety solutions are evolving thanks to the inherently safe design of the Dual rise mechanism, that has been tested and approved by Bureau Veritas. Thanks to the intuitive operation of the Dual Rise system has been designed so anyone can operate the blind: pull the front to make the blind go up; pull the rear chain to make the blind go down eliminating the need for hazardous loops or chains. See for child safety certificates.

Dual Rise allows you to create safe Roman Blinds with only a limited number of components that are both easy to assemble and install. Installation is simple and fast.

It is quieter and smoother than the traditional chain operated system and there are no cleats to fit to the wall ensuring minimal disruption to décor. There are no components to breakaway on the device which will eliminate the need for expensive call backs. Watch Dual Rise in action here
