As standard, our roman blinds have thermal blackout lining; are self-pocketed; and finished to the face fabric with a discreet stab stitch instead of the lines of stitching running across the blinds. They are made with a straight stack, where the cascades of fabric are concealed. All our Roman Blinds come on an all enclosed chain mechanism. Larger blinds are provided with a gear to support the weight of the blind.
Roman blinds fitted inside the window recess are easier to fit and are better for light exclusion. However, fitted outside the recess the blind can be mounted higher than the window to maximise light from the window when the blind is stacked open.
The two measurements that we require to make a roman 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) Reduce the width measurement by 1.5cm to allow the blind to fit in the recess. We recommend reducing the drop by approximately 1cm to allow for clearance on the windowsill.
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.
Drill the holes required.
Attach both of the fixings.
Push the panel into the bracket as shown.
Push the switch round to clip in place.
