Gemini and Gemini Blackout Range

Dutton & Gavin Textiles have updated our Gemini range of roller blind fabrics.

New Product Range

Dutton & Gavin Textiles are delighted to introduce our Sheer Collection.

Beautifully delicate looking fabrics have been carefully selected to offer our customers a range of sheer and screen roller blind fabric options. The collection includes the flame retardant Glintz, Silkscreen and Zephyr Screen fabrics.


Date: 17th May 2013

This year, Dutton & Gavin (Textiles) Ltd have started stocking Rollease Galaxy Geared clutches which are ideal for large commercial applications and are a cost effective alternative to motorization. They provide the same lifting capacity of large clutches, but in a smaller housing and you have the option of end cap and no-notch fascia design for a more polished finish. The higher capacity gear clutch requires minimal pull force, and offers considerable savings over motorized options.


The Galaxy’s combination of gears and patented Velvetrol™ clutch technology creates an improved bidirectional clutch for especially large or heavy shades such as those for lobbies, ballrooms, and panoramic windows. The unique Galaxy clutch technology enables greater weight to be lifted, but for the mechanism itself to remain small. Traditional clutches would need to expand greatly in size to accommodate the same sized loads that the Galaxy can handle in just a 38mm to 80mm tube diameter.

Dutton & Gavin (Textiles) Ltd have recently launched an update pack for their DG4 sample book.

The pack has added several new tone-in-tone Blackout fabrics to the Balmoral range which are 230cm wide. Our new Gemini quality is a range of 20 colours of translucent or matching Blackout, ten of which are 240cm wide.

Also included in the pack is our latest range of Flame Retardant fabrics. With so many requests for wider widths, particularly Flame Retardant Blackouts, we are pleased to be able to offer a first rate selection of colours and widths up to 300cm.

The new Windsor Flame Retardant Blackout is a superior roller blind fabric in a range of colours which at 230cm wide would suit most applications. To avoid joins, our new XL Comet F/R Blackout is available in White or Ivory from stock at 300cm width.

The graceful Silkscreen has been introduced to offer a less expensive alternative to the traditional Natte-type screen fabrics. At 240cm wide and in 4 colours, this fabric is both functional and stylish.

However, when something different is required to meet the most demanding clients, the new Stellar range at 230cm width, offer more exciting and intense shades such as Scarlet and Claret.
