Linked Roller Blinds - How to Measure

Michael takes you through the easy process of measuring your windows for Linked Roller Blinds.  Once you have selected your Link Layout, always work from left to right in measuring your individual blind widths.  Ensure you measure to where the centre of the bearing bracket will sit on the architrave, generally in the centre of where there is a mullion or where doors overlap. The total width entered when ordering must equal the sum of the individual blind widths.

Linked Roller Blinds - How to Measure

Inside Mount

Make sure there is a minimum of 60 millimetres’ depth in your window recess for flush inside mounting.

To get your overall width, measure the hard width inside the recess at the top of your window.  It is important to take the measurement from the top of the window as this is where your brackets will be fitted.

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

Using a grey lead pencil, simply mark the spot inside your recess 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.  Whichever layout you have selected the measure process is the same.

Now starting from left to right, write down what each blind width is individually as this is how they are going to be ordered.  Remember the overall widths that you write down should equal the overall width of your window.  If an individual blind or your overall linked width is greater than 1800 mm, iseekblinds recommends a spring assist for each blind.

Generally, inside mounted roller blinds are Front rolled, which means that the fabric rolls of the front of the roll tube to avoid any knobs, winders or the inner window frame that may obstruct the blind.  This will also create a softer, more balanced look.

Outside Mount

If your roller blind is to be outside mounted, measure the width from the outside edge of the architrave to the outside edge of the architrave at the top of the window frame to get your overall width.

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 your blind to drop past the bottom of your window frame or to the floor.

Using a grey lead pencil, simply mark the spot inside your recess 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.  Whichever layout you have selected the measure process is the same.

Now starting from left to right, write down what each blind width is individually as this is how they are going to be ordered.  Remember the overall widths that you write down should equal the overall width of your window.  If an individual blind or your overall linked width is greater than 1800 mm, iseekblinds recommends a spring assist for each blind.

Back rolling is generally used for outside mounting to keep the fabric tight to the architrave for maximum privacy and greater light control.
