SLIM VENETIAN INSTALLATION
Unpack and identify the loose fittings that are packed with each blind.
The brackets can be recess fixed (A) or wall fixed (B)
Brackets should be fitted near each end of the blind and at approx. 1-metre intervals between.
Double-check your measurements before final fixing and make sure that the brackets are perfectly level.
Make sure that the brackets are not located above any of the components inside the headrail (the blind operation may be affected).
After fixing the brackets to the window, offer the blind up to the brackets (1) and hook the front lip of the head rail over the front of the brackets. Then rotate the rear of the head rail upwards (2) & push it back until it is able to lock into place (a second person may be needed to help with larger blinds).
Clip the clear tilt wand onto the tilter at the top of the blind (alongside the cordlock).
Check the operation of the blind – raising, lowering & tilting should all operate smoothly & fully. If not, dismount the blind & check that components are all locked into place & are not being fouled by brackets.
Dismounting the blind: First, raise the blind fully. Then press the head rail in the direction of arrow (1). Lower the rear of the head rail (2). Pull the blind towards you and away from the brackets in the direction of arrow (3).
OPERATION, CARE & MAINTENANCE
Modern venetian blinds are made of high-grade materials to exacting specifications, and as long as they are installed, operated and maintained properly as per the instructions listed below, they should provide many years of satisfactory service. If requested at the time of installation, the installer can demonstrate the correct use of the blinds, and indicate how best to remove them for cleaning.
Before raising a venetian blind, ensure that the slats are tilted fully open and, where fitted, bottom rail retaining clips are released. When opening a window behind a blind, always raise the blind first – do not push hands through the slats, as this is likely to damage the blind. When closing a venetian blind, tilt the slats in both directions first, then leave them with their top surfaces facing outwards (this lines the slats up, and ensures the best possible closure).
Keeping your aluminium venetian blinds clean is as easy as using a feather duster once a week. When it’s time for spring-cleaning, the blinds can be removed from their brackets and washed with a mild detergent and warm water mix, then rinsed and let dry off. If using a clothesline to hang the blinds on for cleaning, don’t do so on a windy day, and also don’t allow the blinds to fully dry in direct sunshine (which will cause water spotting). Be extra careful with larger blinds…two people may be required to safely handle them.
Where metal blind components are exposed to damp air (i.e. in a bathroom), or salt laden air (i.e. situated within one kilometre of an ocean beach) or other corrosive elements, they must be properly cleaned at least twice per year.
Commercial blind cleaning services are also available in most areas.
On windy days, close windows, or draw blinds away from the opening to prevent damage.
