Roll Up Shade Parts

Identification and Background

Roll-up shades are typically composed of light filtering fabric or woven matchstick material. They consist of a system of pulleys, guides, and strings that rolls the window treatment material up from the bottom. These are often made from bamboo, grass, or vinyl. Sometimes these shades don’t even have a locking mechanism to keep them up. The cord may simply wrap around a cord cleat. These types of shades are often seen outside on patios, in gazebos or as part of enclosed porches and sunrooms.
