All roman blinds over 130cm will contain a join, as most fabrics are approximately 137cm wide.
If the blind requires a join, then each blind will have a centralised panel of full width fabric, with 2 small panels either side. They are joined in this way to balance the blind, and to avoid the join being in the centre of the blind.
If you require any further information on whether your required blind will be joined, then please contact our customer service team before placing your order.
All Roman blinds are manufactured with a tolerance of +/-5mm.
Where you specify a recess size for your blind, we will deduct a small amount to ensure that your blind will clear your window.
All our blinds come complete with a child safe device, that if fitted and used correctly will greatly diminish the possibility of child injury. Below are details of the types of device we include in each blind type.
It is our opinion that the better of the options below, is to choose the deluxe headrail, as this uses a chain to operate the blind, which can be more readily made safe using the device supplied.
Cord Lock headrail
With this device you will be provided with a cleat to allow the cords to be wrapped around it to prevent them hanging down. Please ensure that you fit your cleat and use it each time the blind is raised or lowered.
Deluxe Sidewinder Headrail
For this headrail type you will be supplied with a retaining device, which should be fitted to keep the chain taught, to prevent children from getting tangled up on the chain. The advantage of this type of arrangement is that you do not have to remove the safety device to operate the blind and therefore provided the retaining device is properly fitted, there should be no instance of the chain hanging free
Please contact our customer service department if you have any queries regarding the fitment of your safety device, and we will be happy to assist.
All our made to measure Roman blinds should be dry cleaned only.

Fitting your Roman Blind
When fitting your blind, you will need to use the appropriate fixing depending on what type of surface you are fixing your blind to.
Here are some ideas as to what might work for you
For fixing directly into a wooden window, wood screws are likely to be the best option. We would recommend wood screws of at least 25mm, or longer if your frame allows, to ensure a secure fixing.
Some customers do decide to fit Roman blinds using wood screws or similar to uPVC windows. We would not recommend you do this, as it can invalidate any warranty you may have with your window supplier. We would recommend that you fix the blind to the wall above the window, using appropriate fixings for your wall type.
Fixing to a Wall
When fixing a Roman blind to a wall, you will need to use either Raw Plugs or Hollow wall fixings.
Please bear in mind, that when you raise and lower your blind, you will exert more force on that side of the blind, so make sure the fixings are strong on that side.
Please feel free to call our customer service team who will be more than happy to help if you feel you need any more help fitting your blind. If they are struggle, we can liaise with our in-store fitting team to help resolve your query.
Headrail Options & Wide Roman Blinds
The standard Roman Blind headrail supplied is a side pull headrail with integral cord lock. A cleat tidy and all child safety devices are supplied with each blind.
You may also upgrade to our deluxe headrail option, that has a chain side winder. We strongly recommend this option for blinds over 1.5m wide, as once blinds get over 1.5m wide, they can become heavy to raise and lower. The geared mechanism in the sidewinder headrail make raising and lowering the blind much easier.
It is fine to use the standard headrail option for larger blinds, but we only recommend this if the blinds are decorative only and will not frequently be raised and lowered.
Using Roman Blinds
Here are a couple of suggestions to think about when using roman blinds at a window.
If your window that gets a lot of sun, then fading can be a problem. This is because when the blind is raised, the bottom of each fold can fade in a line. Therefore it can be that when you lower the blind, you can get faded stripes across the Roman Blind.
Choosing a 100% synthetic fibre material will greatly reduce this, as synthetic fabrics do not fade in the same way the natural fabrics do. However it may not possible to completely eliminate this problem, so please call our customer service team if you have any queries.
