Getting Started

Roller Blinds How to Install
Installation Tool Kit - What you will need to install your blinds
  • A grey lead pencil
  • A small cordless drill to pre-drill holes if required.
  • Pre-drilling your bracket holes will avoid splitting your timber, particularly if you have an older style house. It is also recommended for outside mounts.
  • Cordless screwdriver with a 150 mm drill bit (recommended)
  • A string line
  • Installation Screws
  • Installation screws for Timber installation have been supplied with your blind – if you are installing into Masonry or Aluminium, you will need to purchase the appropriate installation screws.
  • A step Ladder if necessary
  • A spirit level (optional)

 

Follow these steps for easy installation:

Mounting Panel glide track brackets
Multi-positioning bracket connectors

The brackets need to sit in a straight alignment and flush against the top of the architraves or wall.
You can adjust the bracket connector for multi-positioning. Simply undo the screw to slide the connector back or forth to the position you want.
This way if you are mounting one bracket on the wall and one bracket on the architrave the brackets will sit at the same position.

 

Install the outside brackets first
Mounting the Panel glide track brackets

If your bracket is going to be attached to the wall, use a stud finder to locate the studs to install your outside bracket. This is particularly important if this is the stack side.
Space your brackets out evenly across the width of the track. However, when the blind is in the open position, most of the weight will sit here. Consider using more brackets at the stack end to hold the weight.
Install the 2 end brackets first. Double check your measurements to ensure both brackets are placed in the correct position.

Generally, you'll find the top of an architrave is not straight - particularly over a longer length.
If you have more than 2 brackets, use a string line to assist you to position your brackets level with each other.
A string line will ensure the brackets sit in a straight alignment and flush against the top of the architraves or wall.

 

Mounting the track
Attaching the track - Step 1

Hold the track so that the bracket is fitted into the front lip of the track as shown in the photo
If your track is of length, attach the track to the middle bracket first and then gently slide the track back and forward into the correct position

Next, lift the back of the track up into position until it clicks into place.

 

Incorrect Installation
Trouble Shooting

Make sure you hear a satisfying click to ensure your bracket has clipped the track securely in place both at the front and the back of the track
Check all brackets to ensure they have all securely attached to the track
In this picture you can see how the bracket has not clicked securely into place - this is incorrect and will need to be clicked properly into the lip of the track
