ROLLER BLINDS 

   Choosing the right place

Depending on the available space and your own preference, you can fit the roller blind in front of the window in different ways: 
1. You can hang the blind on the window frame.
2. You can hang the blind on the wall, above the window frame. 
3. You can hang the blind on the ceiling. 

Check for obstacles

Check that there are no protruding parts that could obstruct the roller blind when you raise or lower it – for example a window handle that sticks out too far. In that case you can consider hanging the blind so that it rolls and unrolls from the front of the roller, instead of from the back.

Measure the width

If you want to hang the blind inside the window frame, measure the width of the blind including the mounting brackets. Allow 5 mm extra space at each side of the frame so you can fit the brackets easily.

Decide on which side you want to fit the chain

Decide whether you want to fit the chain of the roller blind on the left or right side. After marking out the position, fix the brackets inside or onto the window frame. The bracket with a protruding pin, hex-head fitting or groove is usually the side with the chain mechanism. Check first if this is the case, as it can differ from one brand to another.

Fitting the brackets to the window frame or wall

Decide on the position of the first bracket and mark the drilling holes. If you’re fitting the bracket to the window frame, first pre-drill the holes with a thin wood drill bit (2.5 mm). Or if you’re fitting the blind to the wall, use a 6 mm masonry drill bit together with wall plugs of the same size. Then fit the first bracket and lightly tighten the screws. Using a long strip of wood, adjust the roller with a spirit level so it is horizontal. Then mark the drilling holes for the second bracket.

Fitting the brackets to the ceiling

Measure out the center of the window frame, and use a try square to mark this point on the ceiling. From that center point, measure out the positions of the brackets to the left and right (each half of the total length). 

Hanging the blind

First insert the roller into the bracket with the chain mechanism, and then into the other bracket.
