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 

For Face Fit, the Mounting Brackets are fixed directly to the architrave or wall (spaced evenly). Ensure all Mounting Brackets are level and fixed at least 10mm from each end of the track. 

For Recess Fit, the Mounting Brackets are fixed directly to the recessed window frame (spaced evenly across the full width). Ensure all Mounting Brackets are lined up straight so the blind’s track will attach easily. 

Step 2 – Attaching the Blind Headrail 

For this you’ll need to use a fine blade, such as a Stanley Knife, to puncture a small slit on the left and right sides of the bottom and top of the blind headrail. The areas within which to slit the holes are about 8mm wide on each side – run your finger along the bottom of the headrail to locate them. With these holes created, place the headrail under the Mounting Brackets and fit the bolts through the headrail slits and into the Mounting Bracket guide holes. Then tighten the ring and moor of the bolts. 

Step 3 – Installing the Cord Cleat 

Cord Cleats must be installed at least 1600mm above floor level to comply with safety guidelines. The cord must be wrapped around the Cord Cleat and must not form a loop longer than 220mm. 

Fasten the cleat to the wall using the screws provided. Do not use tape, adhesives, staples or nails to attach the cleats. 

Please read the Important Safety Information before using your blind.
