The first thing you need to do, when starting to choose your Freedom Blind System is to select the fabric style and colour that you would like.
Our fabric range has been selected from suppliers predominantly based throughout the UK and Europe which enables us to use some of the best designs available, carefully selected for nearly all environments. We are excited to be able to bring you many fabrics that have been designed by British based textile designers thereby embracing contemporary and fashionable designs for the home and whilst maintaining more traditional and functional fabrics for the office.
Freedom Blinds are able to offer a fabric sampling service which should help you with your final choice. For £10.00 (inc vat & postage) we will send you up to five fabric samples to allow you to compare your choices for light, style and function. We strongly recommend that you use this service to make your final choice of fabric. In fact, because we want you to be confident in your fabric choices, we will discount each blind you order by £10.00 if you order a matching fabric swatch first!

Alternatively, if there is a fabric you would like to use we can have it tested by QMotionUK to ensure it is practical and possible, however there is a charge for this service. Please contact us with any queries and we will be happy to advise on what fabric best meets your needs.
The HEMBAR of a blind is the weight bar that runs across the bottom of any roller blind.
Freedom Blinds Hembars are available in two different depths, Large (35mm high) and Small (15mm high). In addition they are available in five metalic finishes (with matching bracket and fascia finishes) or the option to have it wrapped in the fabric chosen for the main blind. Please consider that as you can use the Hembar to pull the blind into position it may be that a fabric finish may not be suitable as it will show grease and dirt marks a lot easier than the metal finishes.
Finishing Colours : White (W), Black (B), Silver (SL), Sand (SA), Bronze (BR) or
We offer a full range of different mounting bracket options to allow you to fit your Freedom Blind system to almost any wall If you are just ordering a standard blind without any Fascia or Cassette Options our blinds ship with brackets that allow you to mount the blind to either the back / face of the window frame or the top of the window opening. If you specify a fascia within your order, then the brackets are changed to match the mounting required for the fascia. When ordering, please specify which face the blind will mount to and then we can ensure you are supplied with the correct bracket.
Please note: We DO NOT supply the fixings to hold your blind on the wall. As we are sure you can appreciate, trying to supply fixings and instructions for every type of wall is a never ending task. We therefore expect you or your installer to know and use the most suitable fixings for the window.
Including a colour co-ordinated Fascia with your blind order will enhance both the form and function of your Freedom Blinds system. Our Fascias are easily mounted to either inside or outside mounts covering the window width and are an attractive way to conceal the roller blind while adding to the light protection your shades were designed to provide. Any fascia orders include colour co-ordinated end-caps to totally enclose the mounting system providing a simple . • All fascia include an integrated light-blocking strip at the top for full finish and optimal light management.
The Cassette Finish was designed to provide a soft and elegant look with easy installation in mind. The Cassette is formed of two extruded parts. The top and back extrusion is a durable structural aluminum, designed to mount securely as a back or top fix whilst retaining the blind system. The front face plate is a laminated vinyl material engineered to be durable and attractive, while pivoting upwards to provide simple access for installation and battery changes.
Both the Fascias and the Cassette systems works with all QMotion controls and are available on blinds up to 3000mm wide x 3500mm drop, with only a few fabric exceptions. Colour co-ordinated end covers and caps are included with all fascia and cassette systems.
