Where to buy replacement cord for electric shutters

The cord/ribbon has snapped on one of our metal shutters/Lamellenstoren (slats). This is used to raise and lower the shutter. Want to buy the ribbon to be able to repair this myself, but have no idea where to buy this from.

I've done quite a few. It's pretty straightforward. You can buy them made to size or just a reel of the stuff and sew the ends yourself (with a bar tack).

I've bought the Texband from here before. Make sure you measure the width:

Here's a diagram of how to measure the length.

Video on how to do it (in German):



The ones that get the most sun fail first. Replace all the ones in a shutter even if only one breaks.

Perfect, thank for the link and tips. They are 15 years old and this is the first to go completely (two ribbons), have one big shutter that has been working with one gone out of 4, so will do this one as well.
