How to measure for Panel Glide blinds

How do you measure up for Panel Glide blinds?

Correct measuring is the key to easy, hassle-free installation. So, it’s worth taking the time to get it right.

Panel glide blinds are light and easy to operate. They consist of sleek fabric panels that glide effortlessly across a simple headrail track and are well suited to wide windows or sliding doors.

To measure for panel glide blinds, you’ll need a metal tape measure, a pencil and paper, and if required, a sturdy step ladder to get to high places. Please note, our panel glide blinds are only supplied for face fitting.

First, measure the outside width of the window or door, recording the exact width you want your blind manufactured at. For windows with architraves, we recommend measuring to the outer edge of the frame on each side. For frameless windows or doors, we suggest extending about 50mm past the recess edges on each side (as per the visual below).

Next measure the outside height of the frame, starting from the point at which you’d like your blind to sit above the window or door, down to the point at which you’d like your blind to finish.

Once you’ve recorded your measurements, head to the relevant panel glide blind ‘Customise & Order’ area to enter your details and complete your order. Then, after just a few weeks, we’ll send your fabulous new custom-fit Panel Glide blinds to your door.

If you’re in anyway unsure of how to proceed with measuring, please get in touch with our team by phone or email and we’ll be happy to provide specific advice.
