Spring Rods. The Original - Only from WIDMER.

WIDMER spring rods

Spring rods produce spring tension through torsion springs. They can be used as drive or back pull entirely without requiring any electricity. Weights are released and moved horizontally and vertically.

WIDMER spring rod

At WIDMER, we began already in 1886 with the development, production, and distribution of this spring rod technology, and since then we have constantly perfected it. Due to numerous patents, WIDMER occupies by now a leading position on the spring rod market and is well-known all over the world.

Exemplary fields of use of spring rods produced by WIDMER

 WIDMER spring rods are suitable in many different areas, e.g.:

Sun protection:

The standard use for WIDMER spring rods is in roller blinds. The spring rod, here also called blind roller, ensures optimal cloth stretching and rolls the fabric up thanks to its spring force. Especially for insect screen and sun protection roller blinds, WIDMER has developed a spring mechanic with an integrated brake mechanism, slowing the rolling up and thus simplifying the handling of the roller blind (see videos below). Of course, WIDMER spring rods and speed reducers can also be used for other horizontal or vertical shadings (e.g., awnings, roller shutters, etc.). In addition, WIDMER has recently introduced a so-called double spring rod that enables a maximum number of turns at a given tube width. The WIDMER spring rod is also utilized in roller systems for industrial use (e.g. protective covers for machines).

Rolling shutter gates and grills:

WIDMER spring rods either help you open large doors with small efforts, or they support installed electric motors. In either case,WIDMER spring rods reduce power consumption considerably.


Any type of cabinet with roller shutters can be opened and closed without any effort, thanks to WIDMER spring rods.

Vehicle manufacturing:

The operation of roller shutters, tarpaulins, or load area covers of any vehicle, WIDMER spring rods master every challenge.
