How To Measure, Install and Maintain Roller Window Blinds

Painting tool Blinds – How to Evaluate


There are a number of things need to consider when measuring for new Tool Blinds. Below is a quick tips for help you. Firstly ensure you have a pencil and several newspaper and a tape assess (preferably a metal one).

What to measure in

Always measure in millimetres (mm) as most impaired suppliers require a size in millimetres. 

Where to measure

In normal windows areas there are 2 potential places for your blinds to be installed, these are known as the window face, or the window recess. Tool Blinds can be built in to the face of your window frame or wall, or into the top of the home window recess. This gives you complete control of the positioning of your impaired.

For a recess description:

Make sure you have enough depth to attach the inside the shape area. 75mm should be fine; any less will lead to the blind sticking out of the break. If you have lower than 75mm it could be worth considering installing your blind outdoors the window recess as a face fit.

1) Measure the width of the recess from wall structure to wall towards the top. This kind of is where the mounting brackets will be fitted. End up being sure to measure across 3 areas of the width to ensure the area is the same width (or very similar) and them do not have bulges that will affect the procedure of the blind.
2) Take note down the shortest description.
3) Lift off 10mm each side – this will give you some overall flexibility in the case of any variants in your walls and will ensure your blind will not get damaged. If you want total light filter we suggest you fit your blind to the window face.
4) Judge the drop by taking the measurement from the top of the break to the bottom.
5) Make a note of the shortest measurement.

A stopper is provided with many Roller Blinds which means you can limit the movement of the blind to ensure it extends down to fit flawlessly on your windowsill. Operate the blind cycle with a singke palm and with the other pinch one of the chain balls between your thumb and forefinger and work out when this will reach the top of the mechanism. The moment you have your perfect length worked out go the blind chain arrêter onto the chain with a pair of giant pliers.

For a face description:

1) Measure the exact width of where you needed like your blind to be. As being a guide add an overlap from the window frame of between 50 and 100mm this will help reduce the gap beside the impaired, providing better light control and more privacy.
2) Note down the way of measuring.
3) Measure the drop from the top of where you want your blind positioned to the bottom.
4) Note down the measurement.

And keep in mind…

– Make sure that on all recess width measurements that you have deducted 10mm from each side.
– Measure at least 2 times to ensure there are no errors.
– Note the side you wish the controls to be in order that they are easily accessed.
– To make certain of a great fit it is important that when measuring you account for any interferences like window handles.
– For full length home windows we recommend that you measure to approx 20mm off the floor. This kind of will likely give enough clearance and let the shades to have room to settle overtime.
– Intended for face fit installations make sure to raise the blind by 100-150mm above the structure to allow the tool mechanism to clear all the glass as possible when raised. This will allow more light in to the room and is important when blinds are on doors, allowing for clearance.
– Decide if the window blind is over roll or under roll, i. electronic. is the fabric to roll off the front side of the tube or the back. The material going off the back is generally the typical roll.
