Laminating fabrics for Roller Blinds
Most Fabrics can be laminated to make a Roller Blind.
During lamination, the fabric is put through a special machine where it is bonded to a backing at a heat of 120C.
All visible edges are over-locked and all bottom pockets will be stitched.
If the size ordered is wider than the fabric width supplied then this will be joined prior to lamination with a central panel and two joins.
Roller blind backings are all FR and available in white, cream or blackout.
Price includes laminating the provided fabric, over-locking all visible edges and manufacturing into a roller blind
*Please note that preciseness of colour cannot be guaranteed as this depends on the screen settings of your computer.
Please send your order email receipt together with your fabric direct to the factory address we supply will send you. ( NOT our Crosby Office)
Please check that any printed fabric the design is square. Although this is not an issue when used for curtains it can be very obvious when manufacturing roller blinds.
All fabrics we receive will be assumed to be checked and acceptable, no further inspections will take place.
The fabric will be laminated, all visible edges will be stitched over-locked and then manufactured into a blind.
Any blind over the fabric width supplied or over the size 1800mm wide will be joined with a centre panel and two side panels.
How much fabric
The fabric supplied must be a minimum of 100mm wider than the blind size and 500mm longer than the ordered drop
If the blind is joined or needs pattern matching please send 1 extra full pattern repeat for each join/width plus the standard 100 and 500mm above.
Please insure you keep full proof of posting and tracking information.
Measuring for inside a Recess
First ensure that the recess your blind is going into is not obstructed in any way so the blind can hang freely.
Look out for protruding tiles, pipes, skirting boards etc.
Measure at the top, middle and bottom of the window recess and note down the smallest measurements to the nearest millimetre, this is the recess size.
We will make your blind smaller to fit into the recess.
There is no need for you to make any adjustments we do this in production THIS IS CALLED RECESS SIZE
Your Blind will arrive about 5-10mm smaller, so it hangs freely and fits perfect within the recess
All Fabric Blinds will have a narrower fabric width than the total blind size ordered. This is to accommodate the side controls and brackets etc.
This applies to both recess and exact sizes. For Roller Blinds this can be up to -35mm
For Venetian Blinds the recess allowance is only taken from the width.
Measuring for outside a recess or Exact
Decide how much you want to overlap the blind on all sides - we recommend this should be at least 50mm (2 inches) each side in most instances.
or the exact size you want the blind to be, if fitting inside a recess
Carefully measure the at the top, middle and bottom for the width and the left, right and middle for the drop
REMEMBER on roller blinds and some shades ( Facette, Silhouette, Multishade etc ) the fabric will be less than the overall width of the blind/sizes given, so you must allow for this.
We will make your blind to your exact sizes.
The product in its brackets is supplied exactly to the size that has been ordered. THIS IS CALLED EXACT SIZE
Subject to the normal manufactures working +/- tolerances
In Short - Recess we make the allowance - Exact you make the allowance
In Compliance with Child Safety Laws EN13120 - Blinds with cord or chains will be less than or equal to 1000mm, this is for blinds up to 2500mm drop. For blinds with a drop greater than 2500mm the control length will be less or equal to the drop of the blind minus 1500mm. If you supply us with the installation height the distance from the floor to the end of the control will be 1500mm off the floor.
Measuring for Bay Window
- Determine the depth of the blinds you are mounting and use this for the width of your cardboard:
Contact us for Blind depths.
- Cut two pieces of cardboard (depth determined from 1 above) wide by 30cm (12") long.
Important: If spacer blocks or extension brackets will be used for extra clearance on outside mounts, add the amount of extra clearance to the width dimension of the cardboard before measuring.
- Place the strips in the left angle first, and bring them together until the front corners of the cardboard meet. Mark points "A" and "B".
- Repeat this step for the right side angle, marking points "C" and "D".
- Measure between points "B" and "C" to obtain the width measurement of the center blind.
- Measure from point "A" outward to the desired width to obtain the width measurement of the left blind.
- Measure from point "D" outward to the desired width to obtain the width measurement of the right blind.
- Deduct about 5mm from each of your measurements to allow for clearance, and order Exact
