Carefully unwrap the vertical blind and its associated brackets.
There are a number of bracket options for example face fix, top fix, screw fit or spring fit.
Fitting the Brackets
The brackets should be located to allow for the depth of the louvres on the blind. The brackets should therefore be attached to the ceiling or window frame clear from any obstruction on a line 75mm (3”) for 127mm louvres or 55mm (2 1/8”) in the case of 89mm louvres.
For a blind up to 1 metre wide attach two brackets fitted approximately 40mm (1 1⁄2”) from each end of the blind (fig. 1). Any intermediate brackets should be spaced evenly between these and as a general rule:
- Up to 1m = 2 brackets
- 1m and 2m = 3 brackets
- 2m to 3m = 4 brackets
- Over 3m = 5 brackets
Mark the bracket hole positions before drilling and plugging if necessary. Use two screws for a face fix bracket and one screw in a top fix bracket ensuring that the brackets are level. Remember to allow room for the blind to clear any obstacles when deployed, e.g. door or window handles.
Fitting the Track
The track should be fitted into the brackets keeping the operating wand on the side of the blind as ordered (LH/RH control).
If using a face fix screw fit bracket, locate the blind with the groove on the back of the headrail and fit it into the middle lip of the bracket. Now push the blind upwards until the headrail is sitting level on the bracket before tightening the securing screw from the front of the blind. Do not over tighten these screws, it is unnecessary and may damage the track.
If using a top fix spring clip bracket you should push the track upwards then tilt away from you to locate the spring bracket front lip into the front groove on the track. Push upwards and the track will click into place.
