The shade is mounted inside the window opening for a clean, tailored look. When selecting the size of your blinds, enter the exact dimensions of your window opening. Do NOT enter the size of an old/existing blind. The factory will make the necessary deductions for a proper fit. Please make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount depth required to accommodate the brackets, or the flush mount depth if desired. Depth requirements can be found on the product page.
The shade is mounted on the wall or window trim outside and above the window, covering an area larger than the window opening. Outside mount is required if your window opening is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount or if you want to make your window appear larger than it is. When measuring your blinds make sure to adjust the size for proper overlap.
Roller allows you to raise and lower your shade easily with the built-in spring lift. Eliminates the need for cords providing a sleek look and child safe convenience.
Raises and lowers the shade smoothly and evenly using either a looped beaded nylon cord or a metal chain. Pulling the loop cord/chain in one direction will raise the shade and pulling the cord/chain in the opposite direction will lower the shade. Uses a clutch system for reliable performance. The looped cord stays at the same length regardless of the position of the shade. Eliminates the traditional dangling cord, adding child safety and a neater appearance. Includes a tension device for the bottom of the cord and added child safety.
Constructed for installation in outdoor or unconditioned spaces. Components are designed to be rust resistant. Ideal for porches, screen rooms, patios, and other outdoor spaces.
The beaded nylon cord is extremely durable.
The beaded stainless steel chain is silver in color and is a popular choice for commercial spaces or homes with an industrial/modern decor.
