Standard roller blinds
The standard blinds are non-motorized and use different principles for movement, tension and release and continuous loop. Rollers that are spring roller blinds have a spring that creates that friction and tension so that when the tension is apple the blind stays in the place you have moved it. When you want to reposition that is releasing that tension. Continuous loop roller blinds have a more smooth motion going up and down often using a beaded cord to apply movement.
Look for good quality blinds
When you are looking for single or dual roller blinds you need to look at how well they are made to choose something sturdy and reliable.
