Fabric & Co offer custom roller blinds in a fabric of your choice, This allows you to coordinate your blind into your room scheme. Most cotton and linen fabrics are suitable for roller blinds the fabric is "Laminated" where the face fabric is bonded to a standard or blackout lining, then stiffened and finished with an over lock stitch. Roller blinds are generally fitted within the window recess.
This means that they roll up neatly and are extremely discrete when in the open position. The roller blinds come with an all enclosed chain mechanism, with sturdy metal brackets for fitting and can be face or top fixed as appropriate.
The two measurements that we require to make a roller blind are:
Blinds can be fitted either inside or outside the window recess.
It is important to decide where you want your blinds fitted before measuring for them.
Blinds Outside a Window Recess
Decide by how far you want the fabric of the blind to overlap the recess. This is usually a minimum of 5cm on all sides (your windows sill width is often a good guide). Measure the length from top to bottom of the window plus the overlap (W-X). Measure the width plus the overlap (Y-Z).
Blinds Inside a Window Recess
Make sure that the recess is free of obstruction and has at least 7.5cm depth to accommodate the blind's operating mechanism. Measure the length from the top to the bottom of the recess (A-B) Measure the width of the recess (C-D) Please provide us with these two recess measurements, we will then take off any necessary reductions.
Other things to consider are:
We supply universal brackets which can be top fix or back fixed.
Measure the length of the blind and then mak out bolt ends on the required area as shown. Then match up the Fixing and drill the holes.
Attatch the frist fixing pannel as shown.
Attatch one side of the blid into the first fixing. Then marry up the second side making sure the blind is still attached into the first bracket.
