Perfect Fit Measuring & Fitting Guide
Our Perfect Fit blinds are handcrafted right here in Newark Upon Trent. Made to measure, with a frame finish of your choice, they're an excellent choice for use on most UPVC windows and doors.
Experience notes on measuring for Perfect Fit blinds....
Before you begin: Ensure there is a clearance of 6mm all around the outside of your window beading to allow enough room for fitting a Perfect Fit blind.
Measure the glass size: Measure the Width & Drop of your glass size accurately (with a digital tape measure if possible).
In our experience it helps if you measure in both corners, top & bottom, then across the middle of the window then use the smallest measurements in mm for your order. Measuring the bead depth: Using a depth gauge if possible measure the bead depth. If a depth gauge is not available use a flat straight edge or ruler and lay it across the corner of the window from frame to frame.
Then, measure down from your straight edge to the surface of the window glass and this will give you your bead depth. You will need this measurement to determine the size of the brackets to be used.
If your window handles are very close to the beading you may require 'packing pieces' which are inserted between the frame and the handle. A simple adaptation which 'lifts' the handle from the frame to allow better clearance for operation. There are two sizes of packing pieces available - 2mm & 6mm, these can be fitted separately or as a pair. Be sure to look out for them when you are placing your order for Perfect Fit blinds. (Please advise in the notes of your order if you require a total 8mm or more of packing pieces per blind).
