How To Fit Vertical Blinds

Before fitting, check to see if there are any obstructions, i.e. vents or handles, which would affect the smooth operation of the blind. Make an allowance for these when fitting.

Fitting the brackets

Top Fix BracketTop Fixing Brackets:

Fix brackets to ceiling or lintel with holes drilled on a line at least 3” (75mm) from the wall or window frame for blinds with 5” (127mm) louvers or 2 ¹⁄₈” (40mm) from the ends of the track. Any remaining brackets should be spaced evenly between these two brackets.

Face Fix BracketFace Fixing Brackets:

Fix brackets to wall or window frame as closely as possible to the ceiling or lintel with same spacing as recommended for the top fixing brackets.

Fitting the Track

The track must be fitted into the brackets keeping controls to side ordered. Locate the small lip projecting from brackets into grove in track.

Push track up into brackets. Spring clip brackets will hold your track without further adjustment. If your brackets have retaining screws, these should now be screwed into the other slot in the track.

Please do not over-tighten the screws. This is unnecessary and will damage the track.Remove packing material from track, releasing the cord and chain; the cord controls traverses the louvers and the chain control rotates them.

Fitting the Louvres

Turn the hooks so that the slots are 90° to the track. Hang the louvers, keeping all seams one way.

Your blind is now ready to operate.

IMPORTANT

Do not traverse blinds with louvers in closed position. Always turn them 90° to the track before operating cord control.

Cleaning Instructions

Your louvers may have been made with a special washable fabric. If this is so follow the cleaning instructions carefully that have been supplied with the louvers. However, if you are in any doubt please proceed as follows:

  • Remove the louvers and wipe with a clean cloth that has been dampened with a solution of mild detergent.
  • Wipe with a clean, damp cloth
  • Place louvers between clean, dry cloths and iron lengthwise using an iron set to ‘cool’
  • Re-hang the louvers while still damp

Important: To minimize shrinkage during the cleaning process, fabrics must not be allowed to become more than slightly damp.

WARNING

Young children can strangle in a loop of pull cords, chains and tapes, and cords that operate window coverings. They can also wrap cords around their necks.

To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Move beds, cots and furniture away from window covering cords.
