Use this method of to get the correct measurements to enter in the Width and Height boxes if you have sufficient space for your chosen type of blind and want to install your blind inside the Recess as shown below.

1.Measure the inside (Width) of the Recess from side to side in three places in millimetres as shown in the diagram. Positions 1,2 & 3.

2.Measure the inside (Height) of the Recess from top to bottom in three places in millimetres as shown in the diagram. Positions A,B & C.

Enter the smallest Width and Height measurements and be sure to select Recess in the Mount option box.

Do not make any Deductions on your measurements before entering. We will make the Deductions for you.
These will vary with the type of Blind. Contact us if you require special deductions necessary for your situation.

N.B. With Roller Blinds the Width measurement at position 1 at the top is the most important as this is where the brackets will fit. Enter this measurement providing all 3 measurements vary by less than 10mm.
If in doubt please contact us.

We deduct 4mm for each Recess Mount Roller Blind. If any of your Roller blinds are side x side in the same Recess please advise us in the Additional Comments box or contact us to discuss. This will avoid any unnecessary deductions. 

Installing the blind outside the opening Face Mount

(onto the wall or architrave)

Use this method to get the correct measurements to enter in the Width and Height boxes if you don’t have sufficient space in the Recess or just prefer to install your blind onto the wall or architrave as shown below.


1.Measure the Width in millimetres of how wide you would like the blind to be, either from architrave to architrave or allowing the desired overlaps on both sides.

2.Measure the Height in millimetres from architrave to architrave or allowing the desired overlaps at the top and bottom.

Enter the Width and Height measurements and be sure to select Face in the Mount option box. Blinds ordered as Face Mount will be made to these exact sizes. No Deductions will be made.

N.B. With Roller Blinds the width is the complete Blind including Brackets. It is NOT only the Fabric width!

Blind size is always the complete product including any tracks, brackets, headboxes or valances!  

PLEASE NOTE;  All of our Custom Made blinds are supplied with the relevant brackets but you will need to provide your own screws/fixings for installation.  Simply put, we don’t know what surface you will be fitting into… Different screws and plugs will be required for different surfaces. There is a guide in our Installation section showing the different fixings for different wall construction. Your local hardware can also be of assistance.

Cheap, Versatile, SimpleTomasGreat stuff. I actually cut it into 3 pieces to fit into my window in my bedroom. Totally darkens the room. Would be great maybe if the plastic handles were a bit better and maybe some sort magnet or something to hold it down. I bought magnetic tape and put it at the bottom park and then sticky on super strong magnet on the windows frame.5

Window Accordion BlindsMelvynNice and easy to install, but can tear very easily. I don’t think it’s good value for the price.2

Great ScottisJacquieThis is a good product – it does what it’s supposed to do and the velcro fastening means it can be raised and lowered a few times. It sticks to the window well. A pity it isn’t longer – leaves a gap top and bottom of the window and isn’t available in a longer length. The width is good.4

Pleated Glide – Classic Window Finishings

The Equi-Pleat™ Pleated Glide Blind system is a patented method of retaining the shape and appearance of pleated blinds, whatever the shape of window e.g. arches, skylights or sloping windows, etc.

The Equi-Pleat™ system creates and maintains equal spacing between the pleats of the blind, resisting the natural effects of gravity, which would ordinarily cause the fabric to bunch up at the base. Similarly, the pleats themselves are given a rigidity that ensures they stay in place and maintain the dimensional aspects of a pleated blind.

This system provides a beautiful pleated blind that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but can be operated smoothly and efficiently for many years to come.


  • Beautiful and innovative fabric colours and shades
  • Fabric is 100% polyester with anti-static (dust repelling) finish
  • Choose from 100% light omitting to delicate light filtering fabrics
  • Fabric is highly resistant to the effects of water, acid and alkali
  • All fabrics have a solar protective coating, which is a unique finish designed to reflect heat and glare
  • Fabric is guarded against fly spotting
  • Simple front cord lock operation standard
  • Ribboning to back of blind provides pleat retention
  • Maintenance of equal spacing between pleats assists in resisting the natural effects of gravity
  • White or anodised aluminium powder coated head rail and base rail
  • Flame retardant
  • Non-stretch nylon cords
  • Light and easy to operate
  • Duo option available – allowing blind to be raised from the bottom and additionally lowered from the top
  • Ultra-Slim option allows blinds to be rebated right up to the glass
  • All fabrics have a solar protective coating, which is a unique finish designed to reflect heat and glare
  • Suitable for most specialty windows including skylights and incline windows
  • Perfect solution for window coverings to French doors
  • Custom-made to order
  • 2 year warranty

Complete peace of mind with our two year warranty on all Classic Window Finishings products and installation.

90,000 Qmotion wireless curtains – one of the most talked about products at R&T 2015 – already in Russia

In 2008, in Pensacola, Florida, USA, engineer and inventor Willis Mallett decided to make comfortable, battery-powered curtains.He identified residential and commercial premises as the main market for his product, in which it is impossible, or expensive, or simply undesirable to gouge walls and ceilings, stretch a cable – in fact, start a new renovation if there is a need for automatic curtains.

According to the inventor, all the products on the market at that time were unsatisfactory: they were too noisy, and the batteries did not last long.Willis, being the author of the counterweight system – torsion springs, which are used in garage doors, decided to apply the same technology in curtains, and with the help of counterbalance springs, to minimize the consumption of battery power. The experiment, which no one doubted was successful, was behind the years of torsion counterbalance use in the garage industry. The result was not long in coming. Today, Qmotion ® wireless roller blinds, pleats and curtain rods use several dozen unique patented technologies.Here are just a few of them.
– Silence;
– Possibility of manual control;
– Software change of upper and lower limits;
– Astronomical timers;
– Long (up to 3 years) battery life;
– No need to remove the curtain to replace the batteries;
– Unprecedented 5-year guarantee for the mechanism *;
– Compatible with Smart Home control systems.
There are also low-voltage versions of roller blinds that have all (except for autonomous power supply) of the listed properties.
* excluding cloth and batteries

Today head office QMotion ® is 30,000 m 2 office and production space. Starting in 2008 as a team of twenty people, today Qmotion ® is a team of one hundred professionals. The company has production offices in the USA, England, Germany, Australia and Russia.

The company’s products include wireless and low-voltage roller blinds, wireless pleated blinds and the only patented silent wireless curtain rods on the market.

No chipping, no calling an electrician, no wires, no special tools.
* depending on product size and frequency of use

Style Variety
Our mechanism allows you to use a combination of two curtains in two layers on one window.A fabric that filters light is usually used in the front, and a fabric that darkens the room at the back, closer to the glass. The QMotion ® double curtains are a great way to control shading in a small space. The catalog of fabrics has several hundred options for both functional (full and partial darkening) and for decorative use.

How do I open vertical or horizontal blinds? (N photo) –

How to open vertical or horizontal blinds? (H photo)

Known in various interiors – from living rooms to offices and public spaces, blinds have several main features of the device of control mechanisms.Knowledge of these characteristics and a careful attitude, in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, will allow you to extend the life of the blinds without using repairs and replacement of parts.

Features of horizontal structures

With a large selection of different models and types of curtains, vertical blinds still occupy a leading position among the choice of buyers. This design perfectly protects the room from sunlight and heat, scatters bright light, and also fits well into almost any interior.The practicality and convenience of this type of structures are indisputable, their care is simple. To correctly perform simple actions, such as lowering horizontal blinds, you need to know what type of fasteners the structure belongs to. It could be:

  • Ceiling mounted;
  • With wall mount;
  • With attachment at the top of a window or decorative niche.

Depending on the mounting location, access to the control mechanism is provided. If the box with the mechanism is quite high – for example, in the case of ceiling mounting in halls with high walls and large windows, controls such as a cane and cord must be of appropriate length and strength.

There are three controls in total:

  • The whole box into which the folded lamellae is assembled;
  • Reed for turning the lamellas;
  • Cord that allows you to adjust the length of the blade.

More on this topic : Shortening the length of the blind

How to lower window blinds down or raise them up? You must first bring all the plates of the canvas to a horizontal position by turning the cane around its axis.Then, by pulling the rope, the structure is assembled to the required length. To lower the horizontal blinds, you need to take the cord from the middle of the canvas to the side. The control mechanism is soft and requires smooth, slow movements to avoid breakages.

The lamellas are adjusted with a cane-stick, fixed in one of the sides of the structure. By turning it around the axis, you can tilt the slats at the required angle, getting the required amount of lighting or completely closing the room from the sun and prying eyes.

Vertical blinds control

Cloths with a vertical arrangement of slats, when closed, similar to curtains, have various control designs. Since they are intended for large windows or even as a partition in an interior space, there are several common ways to close and open vertical blinds.

  • Slats move to the opposite side of the control mechanism;
  • Control elements on the same side where the slats move;
  • Slats move from center to edges;
  • Offset from edges to center.

The mechanism for controlling vertical blinds is represented by a cornice, to which all lamellas and other parts are attached. It must be strong and can easily support the weight of the entire structure. There are runners with fixed lamellas in it, which move along the cornice and allow you to tear off – push the structure apart using a special rope.

The control chain, or in some cases the same as that of the horizontal models of the cane, by turning the lamella rotates around its axis and regulates the required amount of lighting in the room.

The lower part of the lamellas is equipped with weights and a connecting chain, which ensures their level position.

The modern selection of blinds, taking into account taste and the required design, is very extensive – you can choose the type and color scheme for any situation. By following the operating rules and properly caring for the blinds, you can significantly extend the period of their flawless operation.

How to repair blinds and typical breakdowns

Blinds – one of the best options for replacing curtains.The design perfectly copes with the penetration of unnecessarily annoying sunlight, has many other positive qualities and, with proper care, can last for many years. But sometimes even such a strong and durable thing breaks. What causes structural breakdowns most often, is it possible to repair the blinds with your own hands and can they be repaired?

Most common causes of breakage of vertical blinds

Vertical structures are found in houses much less often than horizontal ones, but they are also popular, since they have all the positive properties of blinds.These are the most common breakdowns.

  • Break in the connecting chain.
  • Opening of the chain with which the blinds are regulated.
  • Broken lamella-eaves connection.
  • Breakage of runners.
  • Deformation of the control cord.

You can deal with all these shortcomings on your own, without seeking help from specialists. Below we will tell you exactly how.

So, if you are thinking of repairing blinds with your own hands, then you need to know how you can fix the breakdowns described above.

  • If you have a broken chain that holds the lamellas together, just buy a new one in the store, having previously measured the width of the structure. Then insert the new chain instead of the old one.
  • If the breakdown is that the control chain is worn out, then you need to open the side cover of the eaves, remove the plastic gear. Remove the broken chain, put a new one on the gear. Put it back in place, close the cover.
  • The breaking shoulder connecting the lamellas and the cornice can be repaired in the following way.Measure the lamella size and buy a new item from the store. Remove the broken shoulder and sew a new one onto the thread, or glue it, if provided by the design.
  • Broken sliders are perhaps the most annoying problem that can occur. First, remove the control cord to get to the mechanism without interference. Unscrew the control mechanism and remove the broken slider by moving the distances. Set the distance to the new slider, then insert it into the curtain rod, stringing it onto the shaft. Close the mechanism and hang the cord back.

    Repair of beggars in vertical blinds

  • When it comes to the control cord, is it worth finding out if it really broke? It may be that the tension is simply loosened and needs to be tightened. But if the cord was torn, then measure its value and go to the store for a new one. Pass the cord through the side eaves cover and then through the runners to secure it.
  • Now you know how to repair vertical blinds if one of the troubles described above occurs and deal with the breakdown with your own hands.And what to do if the elements of horizontal blinds have become unusable?

    Variants of breakage of horizontal blinds

    Horizontal blinds are the most popular type of construction, but, unfortunately, they also break sometimes. And here is what the most frequent breakdowns of blinds look like.

    • Broken hooks.
    • The need to replace the lower clips.
    • Replacing the control cord.
    • Repair of the shutter lifting mechanism.
    • Replacement of strips.

    The reasons why these elements fail are not so important – maybe the service life is expiring, or the structure has been damaged by careless movements. It does not matter, it is only important to know, how to repair blinds qualitatively and quickly replace a destroyed element.

    DIY repair methods for horizontal blinds

    If you are the owner of a horizontal type of structure, then you need to know how to repair horizontal blinds with your own hands if one of the breakdowns described above is found.

  • If such small elements as hooks or clamps are out of order, then you need to buy new missing elements, remove the old ones and fix the new ones.
  • If the cord is torn, then go to the store for a new one, after having measured your blinds. Remove the old cord, thread the new one in its place, through the cylinder and rollers. Pass the rope through the ladder attachment.

    Installing a new cord

  • When the mechanism that sets the blinds in motion breaks down, be prepared to tinker.Most often, you have to seek help from specialists, since it is difficult to solve the problem on your own. It may be necessary to replace the part that has come off, or to lubricate the jamming mechanism.

    Replacing the lifting-slewing mechanism

  • If one of the planks is broken, it can be replaced. But be careful, sometimes different lamellas form a sharp contrast with each other. Purchase a plank that fits your size from a store. Remove all parts in sequence, install a new strip, then put all the parts back in place, checking if the parts are functioning properly.
  • Now the question of how to repair the blinds does not cause any difficulties for you and, if necessary, you can make the repair yourself.

    Breakdown and repair of roller blinds

    Roller blinds stand out a bit on this list.Do-it-yourself repair of roller blinds is possible, but if the canvas itself is damaged, then there is nothing left to do but change it completely or, more preferably, buy a new structure.

    If the curtain does not fit snugly against the window, then it is necessary to check the installation of the guides and the presence of a load in the lower part of the structure. When the curtain does not fit well on the frame, it is best to replace the mount, choosing the one that is most suitable for you. If the control cord breaks, it must be removed and replaced with a new one.Do not tie the torn cord!

    In general, repairing blinds with your own hands does not cause any particular difficulties, and if you have minimal skills, you can deal with breakdowns yourself. You can always find many videos on the Internet that demonstrate the main faults and how to fix them.

    How to repair blinds

    Do-it-yourself blinds repair is quite possible at home.To do this, you need to have tool skills and a creative mind. Without these qualities, it is more expedient not to try to fix the problem, but to call an experienced specialist. If you have skillful hands, the rest of the components and parts missing for repairing blinds with your own hands can be easily purchased in specialized stores.

    Blinds device

    Window blinds are a stylish and functional accessory for any interior – be it an office of a reputable company or a living room of a private house.As a convenient and modern alternative to classic curtains, blinds have one drawback: they tend to break from time to time.

    In order not to aggravate the situation, before you repair the blinds, you must familiarize yourself with their device. All blinds, depending on their design, are divided into two main types: vertical and horizontal. The main difference between the two designs is the vertical or horizontal arrangement of the adjustable sash panels.

    If you are not sure of your technical skills, before you fix the blinds, record the location of parts and accessories in all details on the phone camera.It will also be useful to record each stage of the repair work on the camera – so you will not have any problems during reassembly.

    Main types of breakdowns

    Due to the different structure and order of the device, the malfunctions of these two varieties are also different. Therefore, repairing horizontal blinds will be different from repairing vertical blinds.

    Horizontal design

    Horizontal structures are strong enough, and with careful use they can serve you for ten years without a single breakdown.But with careless use or as a result of poor-quality assembly, certain parts may fail. Let’s take a closer look at how to repair horizontal blinds. The list of major faults includes:

  • The lamellas (sashes) do not rotate around their axis.
  • Broken cord.
  • Breakdown of the lifting and slewing mechanism.
  • Breakage of the horizontal bar.
  • Replacement of hooks and clips

    If the horizontal slats have stopped turning around their axis, then the point is in broken hooks and lower clamps

    If the horizontal slats have stopped turning around their axis, then the problem is in broken hooks and lower clamps.To replace broken plastic parts, you will have to buy new parts from a specialist store.

    At the same time, you should pay attention to their size – the purchased parts may differ from the native ones. Therefore, when going to the store, take the broken part with you for a sample.

    Replacement is done as follows:

  • Removing the old hook or retainer.
  • With one hand we firmly hold the swivel mechanism, preventing it from rotating, and with the other, insert a new hook into the corresponding hole.
  • Insert a vertical cane into the hook.
  • The lower retainer is replaced in the same way. After this procedure, the lamellas will begin to rotate around their axis, regulating the flow of light.

    Replacing the broken cord

    If the cord breaks, it should be replaced with a new one. Before buying a new lace, you should remove the dimensions of the blind structure. Knowing these dimensions, the sales assistant will be able to choose the length of the lace you need.To work you will need scissors, a needle and tweezers. The procedure for replacing the cord will look like this:

  • Remove the remnants of the old torn cord.
  • We pass the new cord through the lifting mechanism so that it passes between the iron cylinder and the plastic roller.
  • We pass the cord into the lower hole of the plastic basket at the point where the ladder is attached. At the same time, the lace is also threaded between the ladder.
  • We pass the second piece of cord, just like the first.We just pass it into the near punching of the horizontal lamellas.
  • Next, take a large needle and insert the cord into it. With the help of a needle we thread the lace through the holes in the lamellas, bypassing the ladder from the right, then the left. Thus, the cord wraps around the ladder in the form of a snake.
  • At the bottom of the blinds, we pass the needle with the cord through the plug and tie it into a knot. We perform a similar operation with the second cord.
  • Repair of the lifting-slewing mechanism

    Replacing the lifting-slewing mechanism is a rather difficult task

    If the blinds do not want to work in the desired mode, then perhaps the whole problem is in the breakdown of the lifting and turning mechanism.Before taking on this work, you need to soberly assess your capabilities: can you fix horizontal blinds with your own hands? The fact is that replacing the lifting-and-turning mechanism is a rather difficult task. First of all, you need to remember the location of all structural parts, after which we proceed directly to replacing the damaged mechanism.

  • First of all, remove the plugs from the sides of the cornice.
  • Unclench the edges of the cornice and, using pliers, pull out the shaft on which the turning mechanism is fixed.
  • Disconnect the shaft and swing mechanism.
  • We take out the cord from the lifting and turning mechanism, having untied its lower ends.
  • We insert the ends of the lace into the new mechanism, passing them between the roller and the cylinder.
  • We attach the new swivel mechanism to the shaft and assemble the structure in the reverse order.
  • This procedure should be followed strictly in the suggested sequence, as an incorrect procedure can lead to damage.

    Replacement of damaged lamellas

    Replace bent lamellas with new ones

    Very often horizontal strips – lamellas – suffer under mechanical stress. At the same time, it is almost impossible to repair damaged strips – it is completely inappropriate to straighten them. It is easier to replace the bent lamellas with new ones. This process is carried out as follows:

  • From the bottom of the strip we squeeze out the plugs, untie and remove the cord.
  • Remove bent or broken planks, replacing them with new ones.
  • We pass the cord into the corresponding holes of the new lamellas, the lower bar and the plug.
  • The ends of the cord are tied in a knot and the plug is inserted back into the bottom bar.
  • As you can see, it is not so difficult to repair horizontal blinds – you just need to show enough diligence and ingenuity. For information on how to repair horizontal blinds yourself, see this video:

    Vertical structures

    The repair of vertical blinds is somewhat different from the repair of horizontal structures.The most frequent failures of this system:

    • break in the connecting chain;
    • open control circuit;
    • hanger replacement;
    • cord break.

    To repair vertical blinds with a broken chain connecting the lamellas, the old chain must be removed. Then a whole chain is mounted in its place, to which the vertical petals of the lamellas are attached.

    Control chain

    Remove the side cover and disassemble the plastic gear on which the chain is wound

    Replacing the control chain will require a fairly large investment of time and effort.First of all, you need to remove the side cover and dismantle the plastic gear on which the chain is wound. After removing a piece of the old chain from the gear, we put a new one on it. Place the gear in its original place and close the side cover.

    Replacing the plastic shoulder

    A common problem with vertical structures is plastic breakage. The most vulnerable part is the shoulder of the lamella. The shoulder is a plastic plate with which the vertical petal is attached to the cornice.It is not difficult to replace it – the shoulder is attached to the fabric lamella by means of an ordinary fishing line or thread. A shoulder is attached to the plastic lamella with a composition. But there is a nuance here – the width of the lamella, which means that the hanger for different blinds can be of different sizes.

    Before purchasing a new spare part, measure the size of the lamella.

    Control cord

    The control cord is rarely torn. But even if this misfortune befell you, it is not so difficult to fix it.You need to purchase a new cord of the required length from the store. You can find out by making small measurements. Take the width of the blind and multiply it by two. To the resulting product we add the height of the structure, multiplied by 1.5. As a result, we get the required length of the cord. How to replace the control mechanism on the blinds, see this video:

    To install a new lace, thread its two ends through the side cover of the cornice. Then we pass the lace through the runners to which the slats are attached.Further, one end of the cord is attached to the latch, and the other is threaded through a special roller located at the end opposite from the control mechanism.

    This is just a small part of the many possible malfunctions and breakdowns of blinds. But, using simple tools and ingenuity, it is quite possible to fix any malfunction at home. At the same time, do-it-yourself repairs can be in no way inferior to repairs made in a professional workshop.

    DIY blinds repair

    High-quality blinds, subject to the rules of operation, can serve well for a long time. However, like other mechanisms, various breakdowns may occur during prolonged use. It is quite possible to repair the blinds on your own, only two components are needed – a creative approach and skillful hands.

    Blinds have long become a familiar attribute of a comfortable life, a stylish element of the interior, a rational replacement for classic curtains. With all the variety of types and shades, depending on the direction of the lamellae, horizontal or vertical sun-protection systems are distinguished.

    Frequent faults of horizontal structures

    Statistics show that horizontal blinds can work reliably for decades. In case of violation of the rules of operation or in the case of poor-quality assembly, breakdowns occur.As a rule, repairs are reduced to replacing a failed part of a structure or a broken lamella.

    Main types of damage:

    • the lamellae stopped turning;
    • the cord broke;
    • the lifting and slewing mechanism is out of order;
    • damaged or crumpled lamellas.

    If the lamellae stop turning, it means that the hooks or lower latches are out of order. Even a novice master will be able to put a new part to replace the broken one.It is important to buy a repair kit with the same parameters in a specialized store, therefore, when you go shopping, do not forget to take the defective item with you.

    We start repairing.

    Remove the broken part. Lock the pivot mechanism. Insert a new hook, and a vertical cane into its hole.

    The lower retainers are removed with a screwdriver, new ones are screwed instead.

    Repair completed. Horizontal blinds will again protect you from bright sunlight.

    Replacing the cord, at first glance, is an impossible operation. You can do it yourself if you are patient and follow our advice. Please note that the length of the cord you purchased must match the size of the structure.

    The work consists of the following steps:

  • Carefully remove the parts of the broken cord.
  • Pulling a new one through the lifting mechanism.
  • We pass the cord through the bottom of the plastic basket, in the place where the ladder is attached, while the cord is passed through it.
  • Similarly, the second piece of cord is inserted with the only difference that it passes through the near punches of the transverse plates.
  • We thread the lace into a needle with a large eyelet and pass it through the lamellas, bypassing the ladder alternately from one side and the other, as if twisting it.
  • We fix the cord in the plug at the bottom of the blinds.
  • When replacing the lift-slewing mechanism, it is important to strictly follow the sequence of operations. Remove the side plugs to reach the breakdown site.Then gently unclench the edges of the curtain rod and remove the pivot shaft with the mechanism attached to it. Remove the ends of the cord from the faulty mechanism and replace it with a new one. Reassemble in the reverse order of .

    Worn out lamellas cannot be repaired, they spoil the appearance of the room and do not contribute to the good mood of the owner. The assortment of specialized stores allows you to select and buy lamellas that match the tone and texture of the material.

    Remove the plugs at the bottom of the strip, untie the cord and remove the broken plates.We insert new ones into the steps of the ladder, thread the cord through them, tie its ends, return the plugs to their place.

    Elimination of basic faults in vertical structures

    Vertical blinds have long caught up with more familiar horizontal blinds in popularity. In such structures, the connecting or control chains, cords, or plastic hangers break most often. Replacing the connecting chain is a fairly straightforward procedure. It is important to correctly calculate its length.To do this, you need to know the number of stripes and their width. Vertical blinds are available in standard widths – 8, 9 and 12.7 cm.

    To replace the control chain, you need to remove the side cover, under which the gear is attached, the control chain is wound around it. Free the gear wheel from the remnants of the defective chain and fix the new one.

    The most vulnerable part of the structure is the lamella hanger, which is a plastic petal, with which the plates are fixed on the cornice. The shoulder is attached to a lamella made of fabric with a fishing line or thread, to a plastic one – it is glued.The width of the shoulder should match the width of the vertical strip.

    Using an uncomplicated set of tools, it is possible to eliminate faults on your own, a DIY repair will be no worse than done in a professional workshop. You can buy slats, swivel mechanisms, cords or hooks to repair blinds in any online store or hypermarket.

    How to repair vertical and horizontal blinds by yourself?

    When purchasing blinds, many are not interested in the rules for operating systems, which leads to breakdowns of rather fragile structures.If you are guided in the structure of the product, you can repair the blinds yourself. In most cases, replacement of a part or lamella is required, so when buying a structure, you should pay attention to whether the set includes spare parts.

    Breakdowns of vertical blinds and how to fix them

    To carry out the repair of vertical blinds, you need to know what breakdowns and for what reason occur most often.

    • Damaged or broken control cord.If the tear-off point is in plain sight, you can simply restore the integrity by carefully sewing the two ends. But a more practical option is to replace the part. To do this, a cassette is opened, in which the control system is located, the remains of the old part are removed, and the new one is carefully mounted through a special hole.


    If the cord breaks very quickly, this indicates a low quality of the components. Even if there is a spare cord in the kit, it is better to take measurements from the product and immediately purchase a more reliable part.

    • If the vertical strip is damaged, the part is simply replaced. This is a simple but challenging process, especially if the lamellas are strung on a chain rather than fastened to it.
    • With your own hands, you can reduce the length of the lamellas. To do this, you need to carry out all the necessary calculations, apply marks, cut off the excess and pass the control chain along the bottom of the strips.

    If the repair of vertical blinds requires a bulkhead of the entire cornice or the replacement of many components, it is better to contact a specialist.They will quickly and efficiently carry out the work, choosing the best parts. Only professionals can cope with reducing the width of the structure.

    How to repair horizontal blinds?

    In some cases it is even more expensive to repair horizontal blinds by professionals than to purchase a new system. Therefore, in the event of a problem, it is recommended to evaluate the breakdown and, if it is not possible to repair the structure, independently consider the option of purchasing a new product.

    Difficult repairs are allowed in case of breakage of wooden blinds, new systems will cost much more. The same approach is encouraged when repairing custom-made structures.

    Do-it-yourself horizontal blinds can be repaired in the following cases.

    • The bottom slats are not parallel to each other. If the deformation of the strips is not visible, this indicates the displacement of the lifting cord. You will have to work with the cords until the planks are in the correct position. If necessary, the cords are secured with clamps.
    • The bars do not move about their axis. First you need to establish the cause of the breakdown. If the tilt cord just came off, it must be returned to its place and fixed. If the moving mechanisms are seized, they are lubricated with oil. If the driving parts (wheel or pin) have jumped out of their place, they are returned to the correct position.
    • When the lift cord is no longer secured, it indicates improper handling of the structure. If a part has jumped out of the lock, it must be returned to its place.Sometimes you can simply pull the cord at different angles and the element will snap into position by itself.
    • If the control lock is jammed and the system cannot be lowered, you need to forcefully, but not jerking, pull the cord down, and then direct it up.
    • Replacement of single lamellas is also possible, but it is worth paying close attention to the color of the plates: they can form a sharp contrast. To avoid this, sometimes several planks are replaced at once.

    After repairs, it is worth thinking about your attitude to systems.Most often, breakdowns occur as a result of abuse of the strength of the lifting mechanism.

    Repair of roll-up sun protection constructions

    If the blinds are damaged, nothing remains but its complete replacement. Considering the fact that the frame of the structures looks best with the “native” canvas, it is recommended to purchase a new system.

    If the problem is in the lifting mechanism, you can solve it yourself. In this case, the cassette is opened or the web is removed from the roller, and the cause of the breakage is eliminated.

    Replacing a broken cord is easy. Just do not tie the two ends, it is better to replace the part completely.

    If the problem is that the curtain does not adhere tightly to the glass surface, you need to check the guides and the weight in the lower part of the curtain.

    When the problem is in fixing the structure to the frame, the system is dismantled and the optimal type of attachment is selected.


    Repair of blinds is not necessary if you follow the rules for the operation of sun protection systems and initially check the quality of the components.Cheap models won’t last long, so don’t chase false savings.

    If a breakdown is detected that cannot be fixed on your own, a specialist consultation will be very helpful, but it should be borne in mind that repair teams can exaggerate the complexity of the problem. If possible, it is better to initially purchase systems with a guarantee, this will help save money and extend the service of the blinds.

    If your windows do not overlook an endless field with sunflowers, but to a neighboring, almost closely standing house, or if you live on the first floor and at the same time you are an introvert and sociopath, or if you just never dreamed of showing your neighbors your underwear and privacy, any blinds are salvation.And horizontal blinds are also a multifunctional salvation – you cannot be seen, but you can peep by pushing the slats apart. Suddenly something interesting happens and you don’t know.

    Perfectionist’s Paradise – Zebra Blinds

    Sometimes you want it to become not just dark, but 98% darker. So that the sun does not just fall into the room, but only 14% of the sun’s rays. Or to make it a little noir, and then – hop! – and again “Provence”. All this is possible if you have Zebra roller blinds on your windows.Only they allow you to smoothly adjust the light flux from the window – to do exactly the way you want right now. And not 1% more!

    The darker the more interesting

    Movies look best in the arms of a sofa. You can also overlap with your loved ones, cats or popcorn (underline as necessary). But the main recipe for good cinema is darkness. This is the only way to achieve 100% immersion in the plot. Nothing distracts. Just you and Tom Hardy, or Monica Bellucci, or Spider-Man (underline as appropriate).And if cats and popcorn are variable, then Blackout blackout blinds are constant. You can even arrange a real movie show at home in broad daylight – lower the blinds and it will become dark, like in a movie theater.

    Vertical blinds. Home or office? To be or not to be?

    Fashion is a very changeable thing. Just yesterday you admired the carpet on the wall and a crystal vase on the TV, and today you cannot decide whether a loft-style lamp is suitable for a Provence-style kitchen.But this is just fashion. Before you look back, everyone will again cover the TV with a lace napkin. Therefore, do as you like, not as is customary. And if you are shivering in love with vertical blinds in the interior, spit on the whole world, which thinks that they should be in an office or clinic. Hang up and enjoy. There are hundreds of materials and textures!

    At least some air – roller blinds on windows

    If you are sensitive to the freshness and quality of air in the apartment and are fighting an unequal battle with soprophytes and viruses, the blinds should be such that opening and closing windows, you do not switch to obscene language and do not develop neurosis in yourself.Roller blinds on guides are exactly what you need. With them, you can open and flip the sashes as much as you like – they do not sag and do not interfere. Sheer happiness, not blinds. But there are so many colors that a little neurosis still cannot be avoided – you will be tortured until you choose the most beautiful one.

    Budgetary, fast, multifunctional – velcro pleated paper blinds

    Paper blinds are a unique invention of mankind for all occasions.And as a temporary option, and as permanent, and as multifunctional. They can close the window and any niche in the apartment, and even make a “door” for an open rack. They attach in one second without drilling or dancing with a tambourine, stick to anything and can be cut to any width. Take a lot at once – they are inexpensive.

    Another pleated blinds. Better!

    No longer budget, but incredibly beautiful. They are fabric and can be of absolutely any shape.They can be opened from the bottom or from the top. Pleated curtains are no longer just a functional element of a window, but a bright accent in the design of a room.

    What if you can’t paint on the walls?

    Trouble and injustice. After all, when you are 3 years old, there is no greater happiness than drawing the whole family on the couch or cutting snowflakes from the curtains. But, if you actively scold the child for this, you can kill the creativity in him forever. Therefore, paper blinds with Velcro are the salvation and the way out.Firstly, it’s not a pity if the child paints them or hacks them up with scissors – they are cheap. Secondly, you can deliberately throw out the entire creative potential of the child on them – let him paint as he wants grandmothers to theatrically admire and faint from beauty.

    Sleeping baby – combed mom

    We know that so many methods of reprisals against a neighbor and his drill have already been born in your head that the script for a new blockbuster is almost ready.Alas, science is powerless here. But there is a proven way to improve the daytime sleep of any child – blackout blinds! They will not only create darkness in the room even during the day, but also improve the soundproofing of the window. And the period when the child sleeps poorly and lightly, you will survive with the least loss.


    Adjustable light protection mechanism for windows – blinds, widely used in premises for various purposes.

    They are a striking addition to the design of a room and are an indispensable attribute of a modern interior. Since the structure is rather fragile, it can often be difficult to lower the blinds.

    What is the cause of the malfunction:

    • Not parallel arrangement of the lower lamellas. If there is no obvious deformation in the planks, the lift cord is likely to have shifted. It needs to be moved so that the lamellas take their primary position. The cords can be fixed with special clips.
    • The bars do not move tangentially to the axis. When the fault is in a loose cord, it should be returned to its place and well fixed.
    • Jamming of the driving mechanism – in this case it must be lubricated
    • If the leading parts have left their places, they need to be returned to their original position

    Sometimes the cause of a malfunction is a stoppage in the functioning of the cord. Do not forget, if any part came out of the lock, it must be put in place.

    Pay attention to …

    Blinds have long been entrenched in the interior of modern apartments, houses and offices. In order for the structure to serve for a long time and reliably, periodically pay attention to breakdowns,

    to prevent permanent failure:

    • The condition of the leaf – the lamellas are often deformed and lead to other breakdowns, including preventing the blinds from lowering. Thin lamellas can become tangled, making it difficult to raise or lower them.
    • The reason may lie in a frayed thread ladder, from this there is a bias.
    • Pay attention to the functionality of the lifting mechanism – sometimes it is he who prevents the blinds from lowering.
    • Cord condition – knots may form, the problem may be in the box (in this case, contact a specialist).

    Eliminate sudden jerks and inaccurate movements in the process of using blinds, then the structure will serve faithfully for more than one year.

    Are you interested in roller blinds? We bring to your attention a rich assortment of goods for every taste!

    The blinds do not open or close, the lamellas are warped, the opening-closing mechanism of the slats has failed – we eliminate the malfunctions on our own.

    Adjustable light protection systems for windows (blinds, roller shutters, roller blinds, roller shutters) are widely used in various types of premises. This is facilitated not only by their direct functions – the regulation of natural light in the room, but also by the fact that they can be used as an element of decor for the interior.

    However, the structures of these devices are relatively fragile and therefore malfunctions may occur, for example, blinds do not close completely, slats are skewed, a break in the control cord, etc. The reasons can be very different – negligent operation, wear of any parts, failure of the mechanism for opening and closing the slats, and the like. In these cases, you can use one of two options for troubleshooting:

    1. Contact a specialist.
    2.Fix the problem yourself.

    Let’s consider these options in more detail.

    Blinds repair by specialists

    Undoubtedly, this option is the best – masters specializing in the repair of light protection devices will be able to professionally troubleshoot, do maintenance work and even clean and wash the blinds. However, two fat minuses lie in wait here: firstly, repair and restoration work can be quite expensive, and secondly, there may not be masters or a service providing such services in your locality.And then you have to use option number 2.

    Blinds repair yourself

    For self-correction of malfunctions, you will have to be patient, carefully familiarize yourself with the design of the device and “arm yourself” with the necessary tools. The repair procedure should begin with finding out the reasons for the breakdown. For example, why the blinds do not close or open, or why the lamella is warped. Then go directly to the analysis of the faulty part, using certain simple rules:

    • For disassembly of the structure, refer to the installation instructions for the device.
    • If you do not rely on your memory, then use a camera or mobile phone to take time-lapse photographs of the state of mechanical components during the entire process.
    • When removing certain units, parts, fasteners, put them in a special container so as not to lose them.
    • Use only the correct tool. For example, a Phillips screwdriver for a specific head of a screw, screw.

    We are confident that using our recommendations, you will be able to independently repair any faulty light-shielding structures.

    In many apartments, blinds have become an integral part of the interior. They are not just a logical addition to windows, but they also act as protection from direct sunlight, as well as from prying eyes. As you know, blinds can be horizontal and vertical. Everyone chooses based on their own taste and purpose of a particular room. But, like other interior elements, blinds can break. There can be many reasons for this.

    But in spite of everything they can be repaired by hand.This article will consider the issue of repairing horizontal blinds and the reasons for their breakdowns.

    Diagnostics and preparation before repair

    In principle, horizontal blinds can serve for decades without breakdowns. This is due to the fact that their design is quite reliable and sturdy. But in some cases, they can break down due to their careless operation. Moreover, external pests can be pets and children, which accelerate their breakdown.

    Although they are not always the cause of the breakdown.For example, the mechanism can become very dirty, resulting in poor lamella movement. As a result, you will have to make great efforts to open / close the blinds and, as a result, breakdown in the end!

    Under any circumstances, the first step is to diagnose the blinds, and only then proceed with the repair.

    Pay attention! When disassembling the blinds, all removed parts must be folded in sequence. So, it will be possible to collect them back without any problems.Some take pictures of each of the stages of the disassembly.

    Malfunctions and repairs!

    If the canvas has completely stopped closing / opening or scrolling around its axis, then the problem will be only in the swivel mechanism. To replace it, work must be done in the following order:

    • The first step is to remove the side plugs from the upper cornice.
    • After, with the help of pliers, the axis of the rotary mechanism protrudes.

    Pay attention! To remove it, you need to first unclench the sides of the cornice.

    • Next, a new mechanism is inserted and the blinds are assembled back.

    In some cases, damaged lamellas are the problem.

    The repair is done as follows:

    1. A cord plug is squeezed out from the bottom of the strap, after which the ends of the knot are cut off and the cord is removed.
    2. Further, the broken lamellas are removed and new ones are mounted in their place.
    3. After that, the cord must be passed through the holes of the lamella, bottom plate and plugs.
    4. At the last stage, the cord is tied into a knot, and the plug is inserted into the lower bar.

    If the problem is different, namely a torn ladder, then you will also need to remove the blinds. To do this, it is necessary to dismantle the side plugs on the upper eaves. After the repair process is carried out in the following sequence:

    1. The upper end of the ladder protrudes from the caliper, which is located on the axis of the mechanism.
    2. To remove the cord, it is necessary to disconnect the curtain from the curtain rod.
    3. After, the ladder should be pushed out to the side.
    4. A new retainer must be mounted on the new ladder.
    5. Next, slats are threaded into each cell of the ladder.
    6. Using a small piece of wire, thread the cord through the holes in the lamella. In this case, the jumper of the ladder should alternate to the left / right of the cord.
    7. At the very end, it is necessary to fix the cord and the ladder using the plug on the lower bar.

    So, here are just some of the breakdowns and methods for their elimination of horizontal blinds.As you can see, the work can be done by hand, without the involvement of specialists.

    Blinds without screws … without holes, without drilling.

    We are increasingly asking for blinds without screws. Mostly in beautiful new shining conservatories where there is concern about warranties, etc. But now there are requests for indoor blinds.

    INTU blinds have been developed with this in mind. They are designed to be installed where the brackets are simply inserted behind the rubber seal on the double glazing.

    No need for drills or screws, just great looking practical blinds that really look a part of your windows or doors.


    INTU without screws are available as aluminum blinds, pleated blinds or Duette energy saving blinds.

    Aluminum Venetian gives you maximum control over the light entering the room by tilting the slats.

    Pleated and Duette blinds give your fabric a more natural look.They are simply raised or lowered to the desired position, again controlling the amount of light entering your room.

    Ideal for double and French doors


    INTU are ideal for double and French doors as they fit the door panels and allow the doors to be fully opened. Again, these are screw-free blinds, so there won’t be any warranty issues on your doors.

    Ideal blinds for the winter garden

    INTU Blinds are the ideal choice for a winter garden.The blinds actually look like part of a conservatory rather than being screwed onto the window frame.

    Many pleated fabrics in the INTU range have a reflective back that reduces heat in the winter garden in summer and helps keep the interior warm in winter.

    I always recommend visiting your local blind showroom so you can see firsthand how these fantastic blinds look and work, so you can make the right choice for your home or conservatory.

    10 free screen readers for blind and visually impaired users

    It is not difficult for a sighted person to imagine how a blind or visually impaired person can make it difficult to use a computer.Just close your eyes and you will immediately feel that even word processing is impossible – or at least not possible without additional software. A number of software is now available that can help make computer use easier, more enjoyable and more productive for blind or visually impaired users. …

    For a deeper understanding of Accessibility , we recommend the Accessibility online course at the Interaction Design Foundation.

    Main software: Screen reader

    Screen reader – Essential software for blind or visually impaired people In simple terms, a screen reader translates any text displayed on a computer screen into a form that a visually impaired user can process (usually tactile, auditory, or a combination of both) … While the most basic screen readers won’t help blind users navigate their computers, advanced programs can give people with visual impairments much more independence.

    While most screen readers use a synthetic voice that reads text aloud, others can also transmit data through a refreshable braille display. Screen readers use crystals that can expand when exposed to certain voltage levels (due to the phenomenon known as the piezo effect), which allows visually impaired users to use their fingers to read text displayed on the screen. But while screen reader software may be available, such hardware is usually very expensive.

    Free software makes universal access a reality

    Many people couldn’t afford the expensive price tag associated with some of the more sophisticated screen readers, luckily there are some completely free screen readers available. Below is a list of free screen readers that you can download:

    1. NVDA (Windows)

      NVDA was developed by blind software engineering graduate James Tay for use with Windows computers.This free open source screen reader has a synthetic voice that reads whatever is hovered over and can be used directly from a USB stick, making it ideal for students.

    2. Serotek System Access (Windows)

      This downloadable and complete screen reader can be used even outside the browser, making it one of the fastest ways to install and launch a screen reader on your system.Serotek offers advanced versions for a fee, although they are much cheaper than other screen readers.

    3. Apple VoiceOver (OS X)

      Apple VoiceOver includes zoom, keyboard control, and verbal descriptions in English to describe what is happening on the screen. It also reads aloud the contents of files, as well as web pages, e-mail messages, and word processing files, while providing a relatively accurate description. user workspace.This covers a wide range of keyboard commands that allow the user to navigate the Mac OS X interface.

    4. ORCA (Linux)

      ORCA is a Linux-based screen reader that has also evolved over the past few years. While not the only Linux-based screen reader, ORCA is definitely the most popular. It was recently included in the Ubuntu installation CD, and with a couple of initial keystrokes, it allows blind people to communicate by ear during the installation process.

    5. BRLTTY (Linux)

      BRLTTY is a background process (daemon) that allows blind people to access the Linux / Unix console (in text mode) using an updatable braille display. It drives the braille display and provides full screen viewing functionality. Some speech capabilities have also been included.

    6. Emacspeak (Linux)

      Emacspeak is a free speech interface that allows visually impaired users to interact independently and effectively with a computer.Its technology enables it to produce rich audio presentation of electronic information. Emacspeak offers an audio interface for various aspects of the Internet, such as viewing and exchanging messages, as well as local and remote information, through a consistent and well-integrated user interface.

    7. WebAnywhere (all OS, web browsers)

      WebAnywhere is a web-based screen reader for the web. It does not require any special software to be installed on the client computer and therefore allows blind people to access the Internet from any computer they have access to with the

      sound card.

    8. Conversational Internet (Internet Explorer)

      Spoken-Web is a web portal that manages a wide range of data-intensive online content such as news, weather, travel and business articles for blind and visually impaired computer users. The site provides a simple and user-friendly interface for navigating between different sections and articles. By using the keyboard to navigate, a blind or visually impaired person can hear the full range of article content presented in a logical, clear and understandable way.

    9. ChromeVox (Google Chrome)

      Google ChromeVox is a Google Chrome screen reader extension for visually impaired users.

    10. ChromeVis (Google Chrome)

      Google ChromeVis is a Google Chrome extension that enlarges any selected text on a web page. The enlarged text appears inside a separate lens and retains the original page layout. Users can change both the text of the lens , the color of , and the background color of the lens .

    Work and Play software

    Blind users need this software to read web content or communicate with friends and colleagues. As more sophisticated software became available to a wider audience, people began to turn their attention to developing leisure programs designed with and in mind. For example, has an available mp3 player for download and a selection games.

    Software development for all

    When it comes to accessibility, a few people with hearing or vision impairments or medical conditions have found that it can be a barrier to using traditional software. The goal is to remove these perceived obstacles and help them achieve results beyond their imagination. This is why it is important that developers continue to work to make the software as accessible as possible to a wide range of people, so that everyone can benefit from the powerful tools that computers have to offer.

    Want to know more?

    If you would like to brush up on accessibility and gain hands-on skills on this topic, consider taking an online course on accessibility. If, on the other hand, you want to learn the basics of UX and usability, you can take an online user experience course. Good luck with your learning!
