Measuring Guide

  • Decide whether the blind will go inside the window frame or outside. Given a choice an inside fit is most popular as it frames the blind & is also less likely to become damaged
  • Scan the window. Check for any handles, joinery etc. that may interfere with the blinds in the now proposed position
  • Take a steel measuring tape or laser and measure each window width first, then drop (in mm please). It may be worth checking the width at the top, middle & bottom of the window. Where you have a variable please supply the narrowest measurement
  • As you measure make a note of which side you would like the controls for each blind


You will need to take your measurements from inside the frame if that is where you want your blinds to sit. Supply outside measurements if the blind needs to be mounted outside the frame. In either scenario please provide your true measurements – we will make the necessary allowances when we manufacture to ensure they fit.

Inside Measurement

Outside Measurement


  • Remove the brackets from the packaging. The bracket with the cross shape is for the chain end.  The other bracket, with the circular hole, is the idle/pin end
  • Screw the appropriate bracket to each top corner of your window frame ensuring they are set at equal distances from the front of the sill
  • Ensure that the sidewinder, the part housing the chain, is facing upward and then slot idle end into its bracket before dropping the control end into it’s bracket
  • If you need to take the blind down turn your attention to the chain end, lift the blind slightly & compress the back to the idle/pin end bracket
