    The cord for raising and lowering is maintained. The tilt mechanism is replaced by a remotely controlled motor unit fed by 4 x 1.5 volt LR6, AA batteries.

    If the header rail is concealed behind a coving or curtain, an external eye can be ordered and can be hung up at 0.5 m from the blind.

    The remote control is suitable for both tilt directions and works on 3 x 1.5 volt LR03, AAA batteries. The motor unit has a choice of channels so that up to a maximum of two separate blinds can be operated via the remote control.

  • CassetteView moreView less
  • A Cassette is a cover that covers the workings of the roller this also makes installation even easier.

  • CleaningView moreView less
  • Vale blinds are easy to clean by first closing the slats and then dusting them with a feather duster, soft-haired brush or soft cloth.

    If the slats are very dirty, it is best to clean them with a damp cloth. You can also use a vacuum cleaner at the lowest setting.

    Another option is to gently spray-clean larger surfaces and then allow them to dry well.

    WARNING! If the steel headrail of the blind is not completely dry, there is a risk that it will start to rust (with the exception of the bathroom qualities, which come with a galvanised steel head rail).

    You can also have the blinds cleaned by a professional cleaning service which uses ultrasonic cleaning technology.

    The above recommendations have been drawn up with care. We are, nevertheless, unable to accept responsibility for the results of cleaning.

  • Measuring GuideView moreView less


    Recess measurements

    The recess is inside the window opening. Choose this option if you want to the blind to lie in the recess of the window.

    Width: Measure the inside width of the window at the top middle and bottom. Use the narrowest width measurement.

    Height: Measure the height of the window at the left, centre and right. Use the shortest height measurement.

    We will deduct the manufacturers recommended tolerance off the width of the blind to ensure the blind operates perfectly within the window recess.



    Recess measurements

    Exact is the outside of the window opening, overlapping the window recess. Choose this option if you want the blind to overlap the window recess.

    Width: To minimise light leakage it's recommended that the blind overlaps the window recess on the width by least 40mm each side (60mm in the case of vertical blinds).

    Height: When measuring the height take into account the required space for the mounting bracket. A flat surface of a minimum 70mm above is required (50mm in the case of vertical blinds). The overlap at the bottom of the blind is a matter of personal choice but please take into account obstacles such as radiators.

  • Next To Another BlindView moreView less
  • When ordering, please state if if you wish to install two or more blinds directly next to each other this way we will calculate the best size for your blind for a nice neat installation.

  • Pleat WidthView moreView less
  • The pleat width is the distance from the front to the back of the fabric when the blind is in the stacked position.

    (This is not necessarily the distance from the front to the back of the workings of the blind i.e the headrail or bottom bar)

  • Pulls, Toggles And TasselsView moreView less

  • RollView moreView less

    All Roller blinds are made as Standard (with the fabric falling off the roller towards the window) This option as always recommended when using a Dim out / Blackout fabric as this will prevent less light entering the room because the fabric will be closer to the window frame!

    (Please note picture shown is the easy fit version)

  • Slat SizeView moreView less
  • This is the distance of each individual Slat from front to back (This is not necessarily the distance from the front to the back of the workings of the blind i.e the headrail or bottom bar)

  • Staining/Painting Of Cut EndsView moreView less
  • This is a custom service that is offered which is where each cut wooden slat and bottom bar is stained/painted to match the colour of blind chosen.

  • Wooden Venetian BlindsView moreView less
  • The colour of the wooden venetian slats will gradually fade, just as a piece of furniture placed in direct sunlight would.

    Exposed (uncoated) wood will be visible on the punched holes in the slats where the cords run though.

    Although wood venetian blinds provide a good degree of light exclusion, they are not blackout blinds and light may enter via:

    • SLATS, as they do not fully touch when tilted, so there will always be some light filtering through. Expect gaps between the fully tilted slats to be greater towards the bottom of the blind.
    • BOTTOM RAIL, this will normally be supplied to rest on the cill. This prevents the blind from swaying should a window be open and reduce the amount of light entering underneath the bottom rail. However this can limit the full closure of the slats at the base of the blind allowing some additional light to filter through at this point.
