How to Install

Installation Tool Kit What you will need to install your Pelmet 95
  • 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 150mm drill bit (recommended)
  • Installation screws
  • A step ladder if necessary
  • A spirit level (optional)
Organising your Pelmets
  • Each of your Pelmets will have a sticker on them detailing the Room name.
  • Layout each of your pelmets (and matching blinds) in front of the correct window.
  • Starting with the first one, remove the packaging carefully. Do not use anything sharp to open your packaging as you may damage the blind. Make sure you lay the pelmet and blind down on a clean surface. If your pelmet and/or blinds are a white colour, it is handy to wear white cotton gloves whilst installing to avoid getting any marks on the product.

 

How to Install your Pelmet 95 - Chain Drive Blind

 
Step 1 - Mounting the brackets
  • Mount your brackets into the architrave, approximately 100mm from the edge. Install the two outside brackets first, and make sure they are level. Use your spirit level here as your architraves may not necessarily be straight/square.
  • Make sure all of your brackets are mounted level to the others.
Step 2 - Fitting the pelmet to the brackets
  • If your pelmet is supplied in two pieces (due to longer length), install a bracket on each side of the seam, slide pelmets together so they join and there is no gap.
  • Present the pelmet to the brackets on an angle firstly, with the front of the pelmet facing forward. The brackets will sit in the groove on the top of the pelmet. Push the pelmet towards the back and the pelmet will lock into place.
  • Your pelmet is now fully installed and you are ready to fit your blinds inside the pelmet.
Step 3 - Fitting the blind inside the pelmet
  • Before inserting the blind into the bracket – make sure the chain is hanging evenly from both sides and the flat surface is facing towards the top.
  • Install your blind into the male bracket first which is also the chain end.
  • Hold the chain end in position and move to the other end of the blind. Guide the spring-loaded pin into the track of the female bracket until it clicks into position.
  • Once the blind is installed it should have 1.5 mm - 2mm movement from left to right between the brackets (the 'float'). If there is no float, your blind will not run smoothly – so adjust your brackets accordingly for secure fixing.
  • Alternatively, you can adjust the pin end for more reach if required.
  • Using the chain drive, lower your blind to the bottom of your window frame and then install your stop ball on the chain at the point just before it enters the chain drive. This will ensure that your blind is not over rolled when lowering.
  • Install your safety cleat out of the reach of children.
  • Your pelmet and blind are now fully installed.

 

How to Install your Pelmet 95 -Motorised Blind

 
Step 1 - Mounting the brackets

You will have received spring loaded brackets with your Pelmet 95.

  • Mount your brackets into the architrave, approximately 100mm from the edge. Install the two outside brackets first, and make sure they are level. Use your spirit level here as your architraves may not necessarily be straight/square.
  • Make sure all of your brackets are mounted level to the others.
Step 2 - Fitting the pelmet to the brackets
  • Present the pelmet to the brackets on an angle firstly, with the front of the pelmet facing forward. The brackets will sit in the groove on the top of the pelmet. Push the pelmet towards the back and the pelmet will lock into place.
  • Your pelmet is now fully installed and you are ready to fit your blinds inside the pelmet.
Step 3 - Fitting the blind inside the pelmet
  • Before inserting the blind into the bracket – make sure the P1 button is facing the front - you will need to access and push this button when you pair your motor to the remote.
  • Have another person assist you when placing the roller blind into the brackets - keep the blind level. Do not to tip the blind down at the motor end - it may slip out and become damaged.
  • Ensure you unroll the fabric down (approx 20cm) before you install so that when you are testing the up or down direction of the motor you have room for the roller blind to go up if required.
  • Install your blind into the male bracket first which is also the motor end.
  • Hold the motor end in position and move to the other end of the blind. Guide the spring-loaded pin into the track of the female bracket until it clicks into position.
  • The blinds should never be 'forced' into the brackets. If you have measured correctly, the blind will simply click into position.
  • Once the blind is installed it should have 1.5 mm - 2mm movement from left to right between the brackets (the 'float'). If there is no float, your blind will not run smoothly – so adjust your brackets accordingly for secure fixing.
  • Alternatively, you can adjust the pin end for more reach if required.
  • Your pelmet and blind are now fully installed.
