Measuring Basics

  • Always try and use a metal tape measure‚ you will get a more accurate result
  • Have a paper and pen ready to write your measurements straight down
  • Look out for things like window handles or tiles. You’ll need to take their position into account to ensure a perfect fit!
  • Double check you are entering your measurements in mm‚ cm or inches

Important note for measuring Roller blinds
For Roller blinds‚ we have to allow for fittings at either end of the blind‚ as there is no headrail. This means the actual fabric is approximately 2.8cm less for an exact measurement and 3.3cm less for a recess measurement. You don't need to make this adjustment‚ we do.

Important note for measuring Vertical blinds
Please note for the drop of a Vertical blind please measure down to your window sill‚ we will deduct 1cm off the drop for both Exact and Recess measurements to ensure your louvres run smoothly along your sill.

Fitting roller blinds (Video audio transcript)

Hello and welcome to Web-blinds‚ I’m here to help you fit your new roller blinds. Don’t worry it’s not complicated and our demonstration video will take you through step by step. Firstly just make sure you’ve got everything‚ you should have 2 brackets‚ these are packed separately at the end of your box‚ so make sure you take these out before throwing away your packaging. One plastic pin‚ you’ll use this with one of your brackets‚ screw and raw plugs‚ wood screws and your blind. If you think you’re missing anything give us a call on 0845 604 9611. Have you got everything? Let’s get started. You will have decided where you are going to fit your blind and whether you’re going to top fix it into the lintel or face fit it into the window frame or wall. Remember you should always top fix if your window frame is UPVC or there are any obstructions such as window handles.

Top Fix
Start with the bracket that has the locating lug on it and insert it into the end of the barrel that’s got a slot. Offer the blind up to the window and make sure that you have equal coverage on each side over the frame and then mark where the outside of the edge of the bracket is. Remove the bracket from the blind‚ and hold it back up in the same position and mark where the holes are to be drilled. Now you’ve drill the holes‚ insert the raw plugs and screw the bracket into place. Now you need to mark the holes for the bracket on the other side. Insert the plastic pin into your other bracket and then put them both into the opposite end of the blind. Offer the blind back up to the original fix bracket and mark the position of the new bracket for fixing. Remove the blind‚ disassemble the bracket and plastic pin‚ drill the holes‚ insert the raw plugs and screw the bracket only into place‚ so if you’ve put the pin in you need to take that out. Making sure the plastic pin is fixed into the side of the barrel of the blind‚ and the fabric of the blind runs off the back of the barrel‚ place the end of the blind into the bracket with the locating lug first. Now click the plastic pin into the barrel‚ and click the barrel into the bracket‚ which will secure your blind in place. If you have a sidewinder chain to operate your blind check it now it should be working. If you’ve chosen our luxury spring operated blind this worked by pulling the fabric out by about 45 degrees. Well done you’ve fitted your blinds‚ if you have any questions or need any further help please contact us on 0845 604 9611. Enjoy your new blinds.

Face fix
Start with the bracket that has the locating lug on it and insert it into the end of the barrel that’s got a slot. Offer the blind up to the window and make sure it’s central‚ with equal coverage on either side‚ the mark where the outside edge of the bracket is. Remove the bracket from the blind‚ and hold it back up in the same position and mark where the holes are to be drilled. If you’re working with a wooden frame you won’t need to drill or use the raw plugs‚ but if you’re attaching it directly to the wall you will need to drill your holes‚ insert your raw plugs and place the bracket into position. Now you need to mark the holes for the bracket on the other side. Insert the plastic pin into your other bracket and then put them both into the opposite end of the blind. Offer the blind back up to the original fix bracket and mark the position of the new bracket for fixing. Remove the blind‚ disassemble the bracket and plastic pin‚ drill the holes‚ insert the raw plugs and screw the bracket only into place‚ so if you’ve put the pin in you need to take that out. Making sure the plastic pin is fixed into the side of the barrel of the blind‚ and the fabric of the blind runs off the back of the barrel‚ place the end of the blind into the bracket with the locating lug first. Now click the plastic pin into the barrel‚ and click the barrel into the bracket‚ which will secure your blind in place. If you have a sidewinder chain to operate your blind check it now it should be working. If you’ve chosen our luxury spring operated blind this worked by pulling the fabric out by about 45 degrees.
