I am drilling into concrete, stone, brick or tile: Use a Masonry drill and appropriate plugs, anchors or screws

Tip

If you are unsure, please contact us via phone or email so we can advise a solution.

Step 1 - Position

As per your order, determine where your blind is to be fitted

  • Face Fit

    On the architrave or wall

  • Recess Fit

    Inside your window frame

Step 2 - Brackets

Remember

Wood screws have been provided, please ensure you have the appropriate screws and drill bit (as specified above) if you are not drilling into wood.

  • Face Fit Brackets

  • Recess Fit Brackets

  • Place the Chain Drive bracket on the side you want the operating chain as per your order.
  • Pre-drill 2 holes and secure the bracket with screws.
  • Repeat the process for the Pin End bracket.

Step 3 - Inserting the blind

Tip

For large blinds it is best to have a second person help hold the blind in position.

  • 1 Chain Drive bracket

    Insert the blind at the Chain Drive bracket first. Ensure that the section where the chain is covered by the bracket is aligned to the top. If this isn’t done correctly your blind won’t operate properly (may be hard to wind) and will be at risk of damage.

  • 2 Pin End bracket

    Slot the Pin End of the blind into the Pin End bracket and make sure it clicks safely into place.

Step 4 - Extending the pin end

  • The pin end of our roller blinds has the ability to be adjusted to achieve a greater width if required, which may be helpful if your blind has been miss measured and requires a tighter fit.
  • By rotating the clear plastic cog, the pin will extend in 1mm increments (max 8mm extension).

Step 5 - Child Safe Cord Tensioner

Important

Australian Child Safety Laws state that a cord tensioner must be installed if the chain is less than 1.6m from the floor to prevent any risk of strangulation.

  • Position the tension device at the bottom of the chain loop, either to the inside of the window frame or in front of it.
  • Install the tension device onto frame, making sure that the loop chain hangs with minimal tension.

Tips & Trouble Shooting

  • My blind is hard to operate or making clunking noises
    It is likely that the blind is in the incorrect position in the Chain Drive bracket. Please go to Step 3 “Inserting the blind” and make sure that the end cap has not been rotated out of position. The ACMEDA logo should always be in the 6 o’clock position.
  • My blind is tracking to one side
    This can easily be remedied by unrolling the blind and placing a 10cm piece of masking tape onto the aluminium tube, on the side you need the blind to go to. Add a couple more layers for thickness until the blind rolls up straight. If this does not fix the problem, please contact us.
  • I need to clean my blind
    Cleaning the blind only requires a damp cloth. Make sure not to rub too hard as you may damage the Blockout coating.
  • My blind has a curve/kink
    Due to transport, or the blind being left in one position for a long period of time, a curve/kink may have formed in the cloth. Please let the blind settle and this should fall out over time (warm weather will usually help). Try to rotate the blind to different heights regularly to avoid this occurring.
  • I would like the chain on the opposite side
    Simply remove the end caps and swap them, along with the bracket positions, to opposite sides.
