Title: ROLLER BLIND ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
A rail is normally provided along a lower edge of a roller blind fabric, and a vertically orientated zipper segment for guiding the movement of the roller blind is typically also fixed to that rail. This can result in jamming of the zipper within an adjacent side guide channel if the rail is for any reason displaced away from its normal vertical plane of movement thereby applying tension on the zipper teeth accommodated within the guide channel. The present invention provides a roller blind assembly including a guide arrangement 35 located along at least one side edge of a blind fabric. The guide arrangement 35 includes a plurality of guide elements 39 spaced along the guide arrangement 35. Each guide element 39 is generally elongate in shape and has rounded opposing ends. The assembly further includes at least one side bracket 21 located adjacent the side edge of the blind fabric. The side bracket 21 includes a guide channel for accommodating and guiding movement of the guide elements 39 accommodated therein. The spacing and shape of the guide elements 39 facilitate rolling of the blind fabric supporting the guide elements 39.
