STANDARD 25mm VENETIAN BLINDS

Unpack and identify the loose fittings that are packed with each blind. The number of brackets supplied will vary depending on the size of the blind.

Before installing the blind, clip the tiltwand onto the tilter at the top of the blind alongside the cordlock.

UNIVERSAL BRACKETS

TILT-WAND

HOLD DOWN BRACKETS

Universal brackets should be face fixed with two screws or top fixed with one screw.

Brackets should be fitted near each end of the blind, and at approx 1-metre intervals between.

 

After fixing the brackets, offer the headrail up to the brackets and hook the front lip of the headrail over the front of the brackets. Then rotate the rear of the headrail upwards & push it back until it is able to lock into place (a second person may be needed to help with larger blinds).

Finally, check that all brackets are secure, and then check the operation of the blind.

Dismounting the blind:

  • Press the headrail in the direction of the arrow (1).
  • Lower the rear of the headrail a little (2).
  • Pull the headrail towards you and away from the brackets in the direction of arrow (3).
 

 PLEASE NOTE:

  • Double-check your measurements before fitting the brackets and make sure that the brackets are fitted in line with each other and level.
  • Never place the brackets over laddertape bearings, cord locks or other components in the headrail.
  • If required, fix the hold down brackets to the window sill.

ROLLER BLINDS (ACMEDA HARDWARE)

 


Unpack and identify the loose fittings that are packed with each blind.


PIN END BRACKET


CONTROL END BRACKET

CHAIN STOPPER

 

The brackets can be recess fixed (A), wall fixed (B) or ceiling fixed (C). Always remember to use at least 2 screws per bracket.

Double-check your measurements before final fixing and make sure that the brackets are perfectly level.

RECESS (A)         WALL (B)        CEILING (C)

Offer the blind up to the brackets.

Insert the control end first and then push the pin end into place. It will “click” when located.

Check that both ends of the blind are securely held within the brackets.

To remove the blind, rotate the clear plastic knurled wheel so that the pin end connection retracts inside the blind.

 

The chain stopper should be fitted to the control chain to prevent users from lowering the blind too far. 

Be careful to position it properly as it is difficult to remove. 

It is a condition of the warranty that this item is correctly fitted.

 

 

Notes:

  • If the blind wanders to one side when rolling up, it may be that the brackets are not level. Re-fix the brackets, and if this does not solve the problem, contact the factory for advice.
  • If you need to change controls from one side to the other, it is recommended that you contact the factory for advice, as some parts are specific to either the right or left sides.
  • Blinds should not fit too tightly or too loosely in the brackets, and should have approximately 1mm to 3mm clearance. If not, re-position the brackets to suit. (on tight fitting blinds, induced friction may cause a drive wheel to retract and allow a blind to fall down & on loose fitting blinds, a small movement of a bracket could allow the blind to completely come out of a bracket and fall down).
  • Ensure that your hands & all work surfaces are scrupulously clean. Pen ink or other contaminants can easily be transferred onto fabric, and may be impossible to remove.

ROLLER BLINDS (ACMEDA PIGGYBACK)

Fit the brackets.

Mount the control bracket, intermediate bracket(s) and idle end bracket in desired position to wall or ceiling.

VERY IMPORTANT: The intermediate brackets must be aligned perfectly. If not, induced friction could cause a drive wheel to retract and allow a blind to fall down.

Fit the Control Blind.

Rotate the clear plastic knurled intermediate drive wheel so that the female connection retracts inside the blind.

Mount the control end on to the control bracket, raise the other end up to it's bracket and then rotate the plastic knurled wheel to release the female connection into the intermediate bracket.

Fit the Slave Blind(s).

Rotate the clear plastic knurled intermediate drive wheel so that the male connection retracts inside the blind.

Mount the idle end on to the idle end bracket, raise the other end up to it's bracket and then rotate the plastic knurled wheel to release the male connection into the intermediate bracket.

The connection between the blinds will now engage.

Bottom Levelling.

Whilst holding the Slave Blind, rotate the clear plastic knurled intermediate drive wheel so that the male connection retracts inside the blind.

Turn the Slave Blind until the bottom rails line up and then rotate the
plastic knurled wheel back to release the connection and link the blinds together again. It is best to align the blinds when they are fully lowered.

Finally, install the intermediate bracket cover if desired.

 

Notes:

  • Blinds should not fit too tightly or too loosely in the brackets, and each blind should have approximately 1mm to 3mm clearance. If not, re-position the brackets to suit. (on tight fitting blinds, induced friction may cause a drive wheel to retract and allow a blind to fall down. With loose fitting blinds, a small movement of a bracket could also allow the blind to completely come out of a bracket and fall down).
  • For a variety of reasons, interconnected blinds may not line up perfectly when fully raised. It is best to align the blinds when they are lowered to the window sill level.
  • Ensure that your hands & all work surfaces are scrupulously clean. Pen ink or other contaminants can easily be transferred onto fabric, and may be impossible to remove.

VERTICAL BLINDS

Location. If installing on plaster or wallboard, pick up timber stud where possible. If unable to locate stud, use a suitable wall plug or toggle for plasterboard to hold the brackets.

Face Fix Installation.

Screw the brackets to the face of the architrave, evenly spaced to properly support the weight of the blind approx 1m centres. The face fix brackets can be adjusted forwards and backwards to achieve the desired position.   Position the clips so the longer tag of the clips is facing away from the curved face (clip only fits one way) . Latch on the hook end of the clip and then press down on the tab end to click in place.

 

Recess Fix Installation.

Screw the clips to the ceiling of the recess in the desired position, evenly spaced to properly support the weight of the blind. Make sure the longer tag of the clips is facing away from the curved face (clip only fits one way). Latch on the hook end of the clip and then press down on the tab end to click in place.

Attaching the Slats to the Track.

Before attaching slats, rotate the carrier hooks fully in both directions, and set the hooks in the OPEN (90° to track) position ready for receiving the slats. The slats come with the bottom chains already joined. Unroll the slat making sure you keep them together. Clip your first slat to your first carrier hook. This will be one of the outside slats and one of the end carrier clips. Attach the next slat in order to t he next clip in order. Repeat this process until all slats are attached to the track. Draw the blind fully closed and fully opened to ensure the carriers operate smoothly. If the first carrier is dislodged, draw the carriers fully back - this should re-engage the first carrier back to the carrier stopper.

Note: Make sure that the blades are in the ‘OPEN’ position when the blind is being drawn open or closed. Failure to do so may cause damage to the blind or restrict its operation.

How to install the Cord Tension device (optional).

The Tension Device reduces the chance of strangulation by limiting access to the control cord or chain.

When fitted properly it should hold any looped controls firmly tensioned against a wall or window frame. This should make it hard for a young child to fit though the controls.

Clip the cord through the bottom of the Tension Device. Position the Tension Device on the window frame or architrave in a position that will not compromise the operation of the control cord. Make sure the controls ar e not twisted when the Tension Device is in the mounting position.

Ensure that there is SUFFICIENT TENSION on the cord - however excessive tension will impair smooth operation of the blind.

Hold the Tension Device in the correct position, as shown. Insert and secure the screw through hole. Make sure the screw is affixed into the architrave or window frame (solid material like MDF or Hardwood).

Normal Draw.

The fabric blades all stack to the end of the blind where the control cords are located. This is the most common option.

Opposite Draw.

The fabric blades all stack at the end of the blind opposite where the controls are. A popular choice for sliding doors.

Split Draw.

The fabric blades stack evenly at each side of the blind.

Center Draw.

The fabric blades all stack at the center of the blind.

Regular Controls

A regular vertical blind control system consists of a plastic chain for tilting the louvres, and a weighted cord to draw the blind across the window.

The chain is coloured to match the other plastic componentry in the blind.

The cord is a black & white colour combination best suited to disguise any discolouration that may be picked up from the operator’s hands.

Unless specified, the factory usually determines the chain & cord length to suit the size of the blind.

A standard tilter has a 20:1 ratio, which precisely & smoothly rotates the louvres.

The cord & chain are housed together and may be at either end of the track.
