Measure & Install InstructionsBack to top

Inside Mount

  • Mounted within the window frame
  • Provides a clean, built-in look
  • Great way to leave attractive woodwork exposed
  • Minimum depth required for secure inside mount: 3/4"
  • Depth required for inside flush mount: 3" without fascia: 4 1/4" with fascia
  • If window frame isn't deep enough, please select outside mount

Outside Mount

  • Great option when there is not enough depth for an inside mount
  • Mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding surface surrounding the window
  • Often used to make the window appear larger or to hide a less attractive window or door
  • No minimum depth requirement
  • Minimum of 1 1/2" flat surface (on wall, ceiling or frame) required for secure outside mount. Be sure to take into account the flat mounting surface area when measuring the area you want to cover with your shade. The factory will make the bracket to bracket width at the top of your roller shade to the width ordered. The fabric will be 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (based on the overall size of the shade) than the width ordered.

Measuring for Inside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the inside width the top of the window opening (where you will mount the shade). We will make the necessary deductions (approx. 1/8").

STEP 2: Measure the height at 3 locations - the left side, middle and right side. Record the largest of the 3 measurements. This is your ordering height.

NOTE: Solar shade fabrics will be approximately 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (varies by the size of the shade) than your ordering width to allow for brackets. If concerned over resulting light gap please select outside mount.

Measuring for Outside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the width of the area you wish to cover. If space allows we recommend adding 2-3" (1-1 1/2" each side) to this measurement to help eliminate light seepage. This is your ordering width and will be the overall measurement of the blind.

STEP 2: Measure the height of the area you wish to cover. This is your ordering height. Be sure to take into account the 1 1/2" flat mounting surface needed when measuring the area you want to cover with your shade. The factory will make your shade (including the roller at the top or the cassette valance, if ordered) to the height ordered. Generally 3" - 4" added to the height of your opening (including molding or framework you wish to cover) will allow you room to mount above the window frame.

NOTE: Solar shade fabrics will be approximately 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (varies by the size of the shade) than your ordering width to allow for brackets. If you need the fabric of your shade to cover a specific width (e.g. for mounting a shade on a door) add 1-3/8" inches to your ordered width to make sure you fabric is wide enough to cover your window opening.
