Linked Roller Blinds - the perfect solution for wide windows, sliding or bi-fold doors

Our Linked Layouts give you the option to link 2 blinds, 3 blinds or 4 blinds depending upon your requirements.

These blinds are placed alongside each other across the window up to a maximum width of 12000 mm. Aesthetically pleasing, linking allows you to size the individual blinds to suit the flow of your window or doors.The Easy-Link system has been designed to allow for individual or multiple blinds to be controlled using a single motor or chain control operation. It is smooth, quiet and durable and is also available to suit the growing demand for dual or double linked roller blinds, providing blockout and sunscreen blinds on the one convenient bracket design. The intermediate brackets reduce the gap between blinds from 35 mm to just 19 mm, ideal for greater light control & privacy.

Use our Roller Blind Link Layout chart to decide which layout is right for you.

Available for both single and double roller blind formats - the link layouts are the same.

How to Measure

How to Measure Roller Blinds - Inside Mount
How to Measure - Inside Mount Blind Position

The rear blind is generally the sunscreen or light filtering blind, whereas the front or top blind is generally the blockout or blackout blind. This means that the sunscreen or light filtering blind is closest to the glass providing protection against UV and glare, whilst the blockout blind can be moved up and down in the front position easily providing privacy and light control.

Width

Window recess depth

Ensure you have at least 100 mm depth inside your window recess for a flush inside mount.

Please provide iseekblinds with the actual opening size of your window recess

*Do not take any deductions (iseekblinds will do this for you)

Overall width

Measure the hard width across the top inside the window recess. This measurement is for the overall width of your window recess.

*It is important that you take your width measurement from the top of the window as this is where your brackets will be fitted.

Individual Blind widths

Use a grey lead pencil to mark the spot directly over the centre of a natural break in the window, the centre of the doors that butt together or the centre of the overlap between two doors.

Then always working from left to right, measure to this mark. This is where the linking bracket(s) will be positioned.

Write down the size of each individual blind width.

The sum of the individual blind widths should equal the overall width of your window.

Drop

Next measure the hard drop from the inside top of your window to the inside bottom of your window.

Top Front Double Bracket

For inside mounted double roller blinds iseekblinds recommends the Top Front Double Bracket.

Roll Direction

This bracket allows for 2 roll direction options to meet your needs

  • Combination - The top blind is front rolled and the rear blind is back rolled.

Roll Directions

Front Roll

The fabric rolls off the front of the roll tube to avoid any knobs, handles, winders or the inner window frame that may obstruct the blind - like a waterfall

Back Roll

The fabric rolls over the back of the roll tube and is closer to the window.

Handy hint for Bedrooms:

iseekblinds recommends you use 2 x single roller blinds for bedrooms. Inside mount your sunscreen blind and outside mount your block out blind. This will provide you with maximum privacy and room darkening. 

Want a Pelmet with your Double Blinds? 

Whilst our Pelmet 95 won't fit over a Double Roller Blind - you can still achieve this finish with two single rollers. By inside moutning your sunscreen blind and outside mounting your blockout - you'll be able to place a Pelmet 95 over the top of the outside mounted blind. You still have the benefit of double blinds, just not on the same bracket.

Width

Overall width

Measure the width from the outside edge of the architrave to the outside edge of the architrave at the top of the window frame. This measurement is for the overall width of your window.

*It is important that you take your width measurement from the top of the window frame as this is where your brackets will be fitted.

Individual Blind widths

Use a grey lead pencil to mark the spot directly over the centre of a natural break in the window, the centre of the doors that butt together or the centre of the overlap between two doors.

Then always working from left to right, measure to this mark. This is where the linking bracket(s) will be positioned.

Write down the size of each individual blind width.

The sum of the individual blind widths should equal the overall width of your window.

Drop

Next measure the hard drop from the top outside edge of the architrave to the bottom outside edge of the architrave. This measurement may be increased if you want the blind to drop past the bottom of your window frame or to the floor.

*Please note: iseekblinds will not make any deductions for outside mounted blinds
