Mounting Brackets

Reveal Fit (Inside  Mount)Inside Mount

For inside mount applications, one mounting screw is used to attach the top of each standard installation bracket to the top sill of the window opening.

Locate the screws on the centrelines you marked, and position the brackets so the front edges are aligned. To attach the brackets, the flat surface of the sill must be at least 25mm deep. To fully recess the shade, the flat surface must be at least 45mm deep. You will need extra clearance if the shade must cover such things as window cranks, handles, locks, etc.

Place a screw through the centre hole in the top of the bracket to inside mount the bracket to the window opening.

 

Face Fit (Outside Mount)Outside Mount

Mount the ends of the installation brackets on a flat vertical surface at least 16mm high. Two screws are used to attach each bracket. Centre the brackets on the centrelines you marked, and attach them with screws through the two holes in the back of the bracket. The tops of the installation brackets must be perfectly level.

 

Bracket Spacing

Bracket spacing is the same for both inside and outside mounts. Two standard installation brackets are positioned on the mounting surface so their centrelines will be 55mm from the ends of the shade.

Installing the Blind

Unwind the cord from around the shade assembly and let it hang. With the cordlock facing you, slip the headrail into the installation brackets. The front lips on the brackets fit into the front groove on the top of the rail.

Push on the rail until it snaps into place. Then, after making sure no fabric is trapped between the headrail and the tabs on the installation brackets, use a screwdriver to tighten the tab screw on each bracket until it is just snug. Do not overtighten.

Protect Your ChildrenChild Safe

Use these cord cleats.

Be aware that it is possible for children to strangle in window covering cords. To reduce the possibility of such an accident, all cords must be kept out of the reach of children, including infants. Cord cleats are an effective way to implement this essential precaution.

Attach the cord cleats 153mm to 305mm apart at a height where they will be out of the reach of children. Take into account that a child may stand on a baby cot or other furniture in an attempt to reach the cords. Once the cleats are attached, simply wrap the excess cord around them after each use of the shade, as shown. It’s fast, easy, and safe.

Care and Cleaning

All fabrics are easy to care for, highly durable, dust repellent and can be cleaned easily with a damp sponge or vacuumed gently with a brush attachment. For a more thorough clean, Ultrasonic cleaning is an option.
