    I think some people have been using Decorquip and like them (haven't used them yet myself but intend to next time I need a track) I believe they assemble to your dimensions and deliver for free.

      Re: Side winder

      I use decorquip and I have to say both I and my fitter have been very impressed with the product and service. Peter at Decorquip is a very very helpful man!

      I had a client recently whom stipulated she wanted safety boxes fitted to her rotary roman blind headrail system as she sadly lost her nephew due to strangulation by a loose roman blind cord. Decorquip provide safety boxes for a really reasonable cost , so I use them as standard now. I have also added a new term in my T&C to say that we are not responsible for accidental injuries should the safety boxes not be used.

      So if you ask Peter nicely , he will send out a sample safety box with your order for you to trial. They are worth every penny and are really well designed too.

        Is a safety box an enclosed track where you can't see the reel mechanism like this http://www.merrick-day.com/acatalog/...il_System.html or something else?

          Louise, its a little box device that is screwed to the wall. The side winding blind mechanism ( the ball chain) is passed through inside the device, so the side winding chain does'nt hang loose. The face of the box is then snapped on to enclose the beaded side winding chain.

          I hope that made sense.

            Hi Tam
            I use bead controllers from Jones and Co for the very same reason. I fit these with all my rotary chain mechanisms as standard. The customer is always delighted when I point out the safety aspect of these. It does say in the cataloque that you can't use them with chain joiners,this is rubbish they work just as well with them. You can't take any chances with something like this.
            Kindest Regards

                    Have just received my first made-to-measure roman blind tracks from Decorquip and I'm very pleased with them. Easy to order over the phone, delivered in 5 working days as promised, and well packed. Also a few pounds cheaper than I had been paying for systems I had to cut to size.

                      Re: Side winder

                      I have just downloaded the Decorquip price list which they very kindly emailed me, and unless I am mistaken, a geared headrail works out at nearly twice the price the price of one I have just bought from Hunter & Hyland (admittedly I am going to have to cut it down to the correct size). This was for a complete set.
                      Any one got any comments?

                        Make sure you are comparing like with like.....sorry, I don't know the Hunter & Hyland system.

                        Decorquip only supply the enclosed systems that some suppliers refer to as 'deluxe', not the other style often referred to as rotary tracks

                          No, It is the enclosed deluxe type.

                              It's £10 for delivery, but I need 10 of them, so that's not too bad - however, I haven't yet had to cut one to size, so I am not too sure how easy that is going to turn out to be - hope it goes OK. I thought I would experiment with one before ordering 10 more! They also make to measure, but this seems to be a much cheaper way of doing it. We'll see!
