Measuring

TOOLS YOU NEED TO MEASURE VERTICAL BLINDS
  • A STEEL MEASURING TAPE
  • A PENCIL TO MARK AND WRITE YOUR MEASUREMENTS
  • A WORKSHEET TO RECORD YOUR FINDINGS
  • A LADDER (IF NECESSARY) FOR TALL WINDOWS

 

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU COME UP WITH AN ACCURATE MEASUREMENT:
  • DO NOT MIX UP THE HEIGHT AND WIDTH MEASUREMENTS WHEN WRITING THEM DOWN BECAUSE INTERCHANGING THEM MAY RESULT IN A BLIND THAT DOESN’T FIT
  • IF YOU ARE MEASURING FOR MORE THAN ONE WINDOW, DON’T ASSUME THEY ARE THE SAME. GO ROUND EACH OF THEM AND RECORD THEIR INDIVIDUAL MEASUREMENTS. SLIGHT VARIATIONS YOU MAY ENCOUNTER CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN HOW THE BLINDS FIT.

 

OUTSIDE RECESS
  1. MEASURE THE EXACT SIZE OF THE AREA YOU WOULD LIKE THE BLIND TO OVERLAP. TO MINIMIZE LIGHT LEAKAGE WE RECOMMEND THAT THE BLIND OVERLAPS THE WINDOW RECESS BY AT LEAST 70MM AT THE TOP AND 50MM EACH SIDE.
  2. THE OVERLAP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BLIND IS A MATTER OF PERSONAL CHOICE BUT PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT OBSTACLES SUCH AS RADIATORS.
  3. USE A METAL TAPE MEASURE AS CLOTH ONES CAN STRETCH AND BEND THEREFORE POTENTIALLY GIVING YOU INACCURATE MEASUREMENTS.

 

INSIDE RECESS

THIS IS THE MEASUREMENT YOU NEED TO TAKE IF YOU WANT YOUR BLIND TO FIT INSIDE THE WINDOW RECESS. MEASURE THE FULL WIDTH AND HEIGHT OF THE RECESS [THE SIZE OF THE HOLE IF YOU LIKE] AND WE WILL MAKE THE APPROPRIATE DEDUCTIONS TO ENSURE A PERFECT FIT.

  • MEASURE IN 3 PLACES FOR BOTH THE WIDTH AND THE DROP, USE THE SMALLEST MEASUREMENTS.
  • DON’T MAKE ANY DEDUCTIONS, WE WILL DO THAT FOR YOU TO ENSURE YOUR BLIND FITS PERFECTLY.
  • USE A METAL TAPE MEASURE, CLOTH ONES CAN STRETCH AND GIVE YOU INACCURATE MEASUREMENTS.

FACE FIX

YOU WILL NEED TO POSITION THE BRACKETS APPROXIMATELY 5CM FROM THE ENDS WHERE THE HEADRAIL IS TO BE POSITIONED IF MORE THAN 2 BRACKETS ARE SUPPLIED, FIT THE ADDITIONAL BRACKETS AT EQUAL SPACING ACROSS THE LENGTH OF THE BLIND. PLEASE ENSURE FIXINGS ARE SUITABLE FOR THE WALL/SURFACE TO WHICH YOU ARE MOUNTING THE BRACKETS.

FACE FIXING HOOK THE BACK OF THE HEADRAIL INTO THE BRACKET AND ROTATE THE HEADRAIL INTO POSITION. SECURE HEADRAIL BY TIGHTENING THE SHORT SCREW IN THE FRONT OF THE BRACKET

 

TOP FIX

YOU WILL NEED TO MEASURE THE DISTANCE AND MARK DOWN THE SECTION TO ALLOW FOR BARRIERS LIKE HANDLES THAT PROTRUDE INTO THE RECESS AREA. YOU WILL HAVE TO LOCATE THE BRACKETS APPROXIMATELY 10CM FROM THE ENDS WHERE THE HEADRAIL IS TO BE POSITIONED AS THIS WILL CLEAR THE WINDOWS HANDLE OPENER.  IF MORE THAN 2 BRACKETS ARE SUPPLIED, FIT THE ADDITIONAL BRACKETS AT EQUAL SPACING ACROSS THE LENGTH OF THE BLIND. PLEASE ENSURE FIXINGS ARE SUITABLE FOR THE WALL/SURFACE TO WHICH YOU ARE MOUNTING THE BRACKETS.
