    Step 1.

    Fitting the Blind in the Outside recess

    When fitting the blind outside the recess measurement C needs to be the same to ensure that the blind fits in the centre of the window. To work out the width of C simply subtract B from A and divide by 2. For fitting the blind you will need to follow the instructions for face fitting.

    Fitting the blind in the inside recess

    There are two ways you can fix the blind, this is either "Face Fix" or "Side Fix." Face fix, is when you fit the brackets to the window frame. Top fix, is when you fit the brackets to the Lintel at the top of the window. This is useful if there is any obstructions for example window handles.

    Step 2 -

    Place the blind in the fitting position and tilt the blind forward you will now be able to see the ladder controls. When fitting the blind you will need at leaast a 5cm gap away from the ladder.

    Step 3 - Fixing the blind

    - Top fixing

    Look at the window and look for obstacles, for example protuding window handles. Mark this measurement on the lintel then add an extra 1cm away from the window handles to make sure the blind easily misses the obstacles when lowered, this is shown on the diagram as size A. This mark on the lintel is where you need to position the back of the bracket. Mark the position of holes "B" and screw the braket to the lintel using screws and rawl plugs.
