How to measure – Face Mount
How to measure for Face Mount (fitting the blind outside the window frame)
These instructions are for blinds mounted outside the window frame on the wall or trim, and cover the window moulding.
Select this option if the window is not deep enough to accommodate a recess mount.
- Measure the width from the outer edge of the architrave to the opposite edge
- Measure the drop from the top of the architrave to where you want the blind to finish
- Decide if the chain is to go on the left or right
If you do not have architraves (timber frame) around window
Measure the opening and add at least 100mm to allow the blind to go past the opening.
(100mm will give 35mm of blind each side past the opening)
Measure the opening and add at least 100mm to the drop to allow the blind to be mounted above the opening.
