Roller Blinds Installation Guide

Materials for Each Blind

Each Roller Blind ordered should include:

  • 1 pair of installation brackets – 1 for the control side (spade end), 1 for the idle end (pin end). If a linked blind has been ordered you will also receive an intermediary bracket(s).
  • 1 child safety tensioner or in the case of a dual blind 2 child safety tensioners.

Tools Required for Installation

  • Steel measuring tape.
  • Carpenter’s level.
  • Power or battery drill and bits.
  • Flat blade and Phillips head screwdrivers.
  • 20mm x 6# panhead screws for both the brackets and the tensioning device.

Mounting the Brackets

Before Installation, check method of fixing and whether the blind is standard or reverse roll. The fixing of the brackets may be in a horizontal or vertical position with the screws going in either of two directions.

It must first be determined which of the brackets is to accept the chain drive end, dependent upon whether the blind is ‘Standard’ or ‘Reverse Roll’. The brackets are then screwed in position ensuring the blind roller tube, when assembled, is in a horizontal plane (check with spirit level).

The outmost edge of the brackets should be equal to the blind width specified.

Bricks or Rendered Surfaces

Warning: Ensure you drill no closer than 25mm from the edges of these surfaces as you may chip or break the brick or render.

Reveal Fit (Inside Mount)

Examine the window carefully and decide whether the brackets should be top, or back mounted. Next, determine which side your chain control should be on and install the appropriate brackets, followed by the other bracket on the opposite side.

Face Fit (Outside Mount)

First measure the blind and mark on the face or architrave of the window where to attach the brackets. Attach the brackets by screwing in one screw to allow for minor adjustments before the second screw is attached.

 

INSTALLATION OF STANDARD CHAIN DRIVE BLIND AND RETRO SPRING

Installation

  • Insert the control end of the tube onto the control bracket.
  • Slide idle end with retractable pin into the idle end bracket cap until pin clicks in.

Removal

  • Retract pin by rotating the grooved wheel anti clockwise until pin is fully retracted and locked into place.
  • Disengage the Idler end from the Idle bracket and remove blind.

NOTE: The blind with the Spring Assist is installed using the same method as the Standard Chain Drive (outlined above). This blind does not require pre-tensioning in the home.

INSTALLATION OF DUAL BLIND

  • Mount installation bracket in desired position with screws to wall or ceiling.
  • Following the installation instructions outlined on previous pages, securely install the ‘window’ blind and then the ‘Room Blind’.

NOTE: ‘Room Blind’ must be reverse roll (see diagram).

INSTALLATION OF CHAIN DRIVE LINKED BLIND

  • Mount installation bracket in desired position with screws to wall or ceiling.
  • Following the installation instructions outlined on previous pages, securely install roller blind components into the brackets beginning with the control end blind. Install other blind components ensuring the Intermediate male drive fits inside the Intermediate female drive. Repeat as required.
  • When all blinds have been installed, run them up and down twice to let blinds settle.
  • Align the level of blinds by turning ‘dial’ of the Intermediate Female drive. Clockwise makes the blind shorter, anti-clockwise makes the blind longer.

NOTE: Aligning the level of the blinds on a reverse roll configuration, the directions are opposite to a back roll set up. Clockwise makes the blind longer and anticlockwise makes the blind shorter.
