Fitting Guide

Fitting Roller Blinds and Zebra Blinds

 

During the ordering process as we were asked for the control position (right, left) and fitting options (exact, recess) we will have positioned the controls and prepare the blind accordingly.

The brackets that are supplied with your blind enable you to face-fix the blind onto a wall/window frame, or top-fix the blind onto the ceiling/underside of a recess. As our Roller Blinds also comes with an Head Rail as an advantage compared to the cheap blinds in the market it is very easy to mount with only a clip to hold it in place.

Face Fix & Top Fix

Top Fix (to the window frame)            

If you have a sound substrate to fit your blinds to the top of your window recess this does provide a neat installation where the blind is situated with minimal risk of damage in a normal situation.

  • Measure and mark the distance allowing for obstructions like handles that protrude into the recess area.
  • To calculate the spacing between the brackets, add 35mm (13/8”) to the width of the blind fabric. Hold each bracket into place and mark the hole positions. Fix the brackets so that the outsides of the brackets are this distance apart. Fit each bracket using the screws provided.
  • Brackets must be level to ensure the smooth operation of the blind.
  • Check that the rolled up fabric will not touch any surface.
  • Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/surface to which you are mounting the brackets.
  • Hold the blind to the brackets with the fabric hanging from the back of the blind.
  • First locate the ‘pin’ (the end of the blind opposite to the controls) into the bracket, then fix the control end into the opposite bracket. Push the blind into the bracket, depressing the plunger.
  • Allow the hook to drop downwards so that it locks into place in the bracket.

Top Fix (to the window frame)             
If you have a sound substrate to fit your blinds to the top of your window recess this does provide a neat installation where the blind is situated with minimal risk of damage in a normal situation.

  • Measure and mark the distance allowing for obstructions like handles that protrude into the recess area.
  • Leaving 5-10 cm from each end of the rail, a bracket should be fixed either side of the blind rail and if more than 2 brackets are supplied rest of the brackets should be fitted across the blind width with equal spacing between each bracket.
  • For top-fix brackets, to make sure that the louvres rotate freely without touching the wall or window behind, the front edge of the bracket must be at least 75mm (3”) away from the facing surface behind the rail.
  • Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/surface to which you are mounting the brackets.
  • Use a single screw to fix the bracket into the surface. Fit each bracket using the screws provided.

  • To remove the headrail push the bracket up as shown in the picture.

  • Now, hook each fabric slat into the headrail travellers ensuring the traveller pegs are in the open position. Before hooking the fabric slats, use the beaded chain to turn the hooks so that they all face side on. This will make the process quicker and also fabric slats will not clash on its first use.

Child Safety Device Installation

  • Children can be strangled if a safety device is not installed. Always use a safety device to keep cords or chains out of reach of children.
  • The cord retaining device must be installed at the maximum distance possible from the control mechanism to prevent looped cord(s) becoming slack.
  • Place retaining device on the wall and mark the position of the hole using a pencil. Drill holes using a suitable drill bit. Place device into position ensuring the chain is fully taut. Take the retaining device and screw it using suitable fixings ensuring the device is fully closed.
