ROLLER SHADE HEM BAR
Often times called a ‘pocket’ hem bar, this style is produced by folding fabric at the end of the shade band over and ultrasonic welding a pocket around an aluminum weight. This is the only type of hem bar that remains completely the same color as the roller shade on the front and back.
An external hem bar is made from the same aluminum as the fascia and comes in identical color offerings. This external bar is fitted onto the end of the roller shade band and creates a more substantial bottom edge and contemporary look.
A combination of the above two styles, attempting to provide the benefits of each - discrete visual presence with a substantial support at the bottom of the shade band. The fabric wrapped hem bar is also considered an external hem bar and is produced in much the same way. The added facet of the design is that extra shade fabric covers or wraps around the front of the external bar for a more seamless aesthetic.
