Fitting location

Before commencing installation, determine the correct fitting location for your window. The location should correspond with your order information.

Please note – your finished size for Face Fit Blinds is as per the ordered size. For Recess Fit Blinds, the supplied blind widths will be 10mm less than when ordered to allow the brackets to fit inside the recess.

Step 1 – Installing the Mounting Brackets

Position the Mounting Brackets approximately 50mm from each end (left and right) of the blind and fix to the wall or architrave with the screws provided. An extra Mounting Bracket is required for blinds exceeding 1200mm width. This can be positioned in the centre, between the two side brackets.

Please note – ensure the Mounting Brackets are not positioned where they will interfere with the working mechanisms of the blind.

Step 2 – Fixing the Blind Headrail 

Position the front edge of the headrail into the front hooks of the Mounting Brackets and gently push upwards until the rail “snaps” into position. 

Step 3 – Installing the Cord Cleat 

Cord Cleats must be installed at least 1600mm above floor level to comply with safety guidelines. Fasten the Cord Cleat to the wall using the screws provided. Do not use tape, adhesives, staples or nails to attach the Cord Cleats.  Once fitted, the cord must be wound entirely around the Cord Cleat to ensure safe use and must not form a loop longer than 220mm. 

Step 4 – (If ordered) Installing Hold Down Clips 

Using the screws provided, attach the base of the Hold Down Clip to the window recess/sill.  Additional fixing is possible through the side of the clip (when suitable). Once attached, snap the Hold Down Clip pin into the guide holes found on the end of the blind’s bottom rail.
