Battery Operated Remote Control

Battery Operated Motor with RTS Remote Control This comes with radio frequency

This option with enable the user to operate there blind even in the most awkward location.

This option will open close and stop in any position.

Battery Operated Tilt

With the infrared remote control you are not only opting for atmosphere but also for comfort inside your home. In this way the blind can be easily adjusted to the constantly changing incidence of light.

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.

(Only available on 16mm, 25mm, 35mm and Ondulette®)

Bracket types

Brackets for Wooden Venetian blinds

Box brackets:- These fit at each end of the blind and can be top, side or face fixed (Standard)

Swivel brackets:-These can be fitted in various places along the blind and can be Top or Face fixed only!

Cassette

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

Cleaning

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.

Control Options

Standard Control Option

The standard control has lift cord with cord lock system either on the left or right hand side of the blind.

Option 3

This an endless cord on the lest or right hand side of the blind.

Measuring Guide

Recess

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.

 

Exact

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.

Mono Control

This is one control for both the lift and tilt this is usually on an endless chain system.

Next to Another Blind

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.
