Standard headrail track system. Traverse cord is standard with an optional up-charge wand control available. One-way draw, split draw, and reverse one-way draw options available. Metal strap track has 33% tighter stacking space providing greater viewing area on inside mount applications. Unique release lever allows stacked back vanes to be moved to the center of the window for easy and complete window cleaning.
The blind 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 blind 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.
A loop cord is used to traverse the vertical vanes along the track to open and close the vertical. Two beaded chains are used to rotate the vanes, tilting them open and closed for light and privacy control. The loop cord is approximately 75% of the product height up to the length of the product, required to fully traverse the blind open and closed, this length cannot be changed. The tilt chains are approximately 33% of product height by default, a custom length can be ordered on an option below.
Standard length for the tilt chains is approximately 1/3 of the ordered height of the blind.
Custom tilt chain length for taller windows, windows higher off the ground, or difficult to reach windows. Chains will lengthen/shorten when blinds are tilted. Recommended that the ordered length is at least 4-feet off the ground and/or out of the reach of children.
Standard wand length is determined by the ordered height of the blind. Blind height up to 54" has 24" wand, blind height 54 1/8" to 72" has 36" wand, blind height 72 1/8" to 96" has 48" wand, blind height over 96" has 60" wand.
Custom wand length is available for taller/shorter windows, windows higher off the ground, or difficult to reach windows.
When the blind is drawn open the vertical vanes will stack to the same side of the window that the controls are on.
Also referred to as Opposite Draw. When the blind is drawn open the vertical vanes will stack to the opposite side of the window that the controls are on. Available with the Vistec headrail system only.
The blind will open from the middle and vanes will stack evenly on both sides of the window. Cord controls can be positioned at either end of the headrail. Wand can be on either side and will pull to the center when closed.
When selected, no valance will be included with your vertical blind, resulting in the headrail track system being visible.
