Roman Blinds Installation Guide
- Steel measuring tape
- Carpenter’s level
- Power or battery drill and bits
- Flat head and Phillips head screwdrivers
REVEAL & FACE FIT (USING SCREWS)
Hold the Roman Shade inside the window frame.
Note: You may need to use washers or packing to ensure level.
Screw into the headrail: into the top of the reveal; or from the front, into the back of the reveal or the face of the wall or architrave.
FACE FIT (OUTSIDE MOUNT) USING STANDARD BRACKETS
The standard installation brackets may be Reveal (inside the window frame) or Face (outside the window frame) mounted. In all cases, level mounting is critical to the operation of the shade (use a carpenter’s level). Hold the Roman Shade on the face of the window and mark the position of the brackets. Attach the brackets with screws provided (2 per bracket for face fit) ensuring all brackets are in line and level.
FACE FIT (OUTSIDE MOUNT) USING OPTIONAL EXTENSION BRACKETS
Hold the Roman Shade on the face of the window. Attach the brackets with the screws provided (2 per bracket for face fit) ensuring all brackets are in line and level. Insert the 5mm x 25mm threaded bolt into the bracket and secure the bolt onto the bracket with the 5mm half nut. Repeat for each bracket. You are now ready to install the blind.
INSTALLING THE SHADE
Simply slip the headrail on to the front screw of the bracket, push up. The headrail can then be secured by placing the washer over the front screw of the bracket and tightening the wing nuts.
BRICK OR RENDERED SURFACES
Warning: Ensure you drill no closer than 25mm from the edges of these surfaces as you may chip or break out the brick or render.
FIXING TO CLEAR HANDLES, ARCHITRAVE ETC.
If needing to pack out from the window to clear handles, locks, architraves etc., use a full width piece of timber as this is more stable than individual pieces of timber and you can fix the brackets to the timber in any position.
