Header Rail Tilt Rods for Window Blinds

Bekaert manufactures specially shaped, galvanized (zinc) coated tilt rods for horizontal and vertical blind header rail mechanisms. These essential rods allow synchronized adjustment of your slats or shade fabrics. With our advanced steel profiling techniques, we can create tilt rods that mate with your adjustment mechanisms no matter your customer’s window width. We also produce shapes according to your specifications so that the rods we make incorporate into your blinds' existing drum mechanism, meaning you will not need to adjust the rods once received.

Manufacturing Tilt Rods With Bekaert

Our steel shaping methods produce tilt rods for blinds that are precise, durable and fit any shape you require. We use high-grade steel with cold-rolling and/or cold-drawing to meet your specifications for strength, straightness, twist and corrosion resistance.

We strive to create products you can use in your manufacturing process without any adaptions. Our galvanized surfaces are clean to eliminate any transfer of residue to your fabrics or slats during assembly. These steel profiling techniques create tilt rods that meet tight tolerances while enhancing the steel’s material properties.
