Bekaert manufactures custom-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.
Our steel shaping methods produce custom tilt rods that are precise and
durable. We use high-grade steel with cold-rolling and/or cold-drawing to
meet your specifications for strength, straightness, twist, and corrosion
resistance. 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.
Bekaert is your single source for custom tilt rods. With steel profiling
and finishing techniques, we create a final product that fits your overall
header mechanism design. Common geometries are triangular, hexagonal,
square, and custom-shapes based on your tilt/rotate mechanisms.
We offer long lengths, up to 16 ft. (5 meters) for you to cut in-house for
custom window widths. Bekaert can also offer exact-cut length tilt rods for
higher-volume standard blind widths.
Bekaert packages galvanized tilt rods in plastic sleeves to keep them clean
until you need them. We also ship them in heavy gage cardboard tubes,
bundled onto wood boards to maintain straightness in transit and in
