ROLLER FITTING & OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Carefully unwrap the roller blind and its associated brackets.
The brackets are universal and can be fixed in a top, face or side fix position.
Note — System 32® has two differing brackets, an idle end and a control end that should be installed for the operation of the blind.


FITTING THE BRACKETS

To work out the distance required between each bracket you will need to first
measure the fabric width, e.g 1500mm.

Add to this an allowance for the control and idle end of 35mm, e.g = 1535mm.

1535mm would be the measurement from the outside of one bracket to the
outside of the other bracket.


Use this figure to position the outside of your brackets accordingly whether inside
of the recess or outside of the recess

Mark the hole positions before drilling and plugging if necessary. Use two screws
in each bracket ensuring that the brackets are level. Remember to allow room for
the blind to clear any obstacles when deployed, e.g. door or window handles.

FITTING THE BLIND
Once the brackets have been fitted the blind can be inserted into the brackets.

Note — For conventional roller blinds the fabric comes down from the back of the
l blind and for reverse roll blinds the fabric hangs from the front of the blind.

With the fabric rolled around the tube, offer the idle end (the end with the pin to
the idle end bracket.

With the idle end in place offer the control end to the opposite bracket and secure the blind in place ensuring that the centre lug has dropped into the slot on the bracket.

With the idle end in place offer the control end to the opposite bracket and secure the blind in place ensuring that the centre lug has dropped into the slot on the bracket.

 

 

FITTING A SIDE FIX CORD TIDY

The cord tidy is a two piece device and will arrive with a disposable red tab fitted to it.

Remove the disposable red tab by disengaging it from the chain and then pull
out the disposable red tab.

Position the cord tidy to the wall at the furthest distance below the roller tube adding appropriate tension to the chain and mark its location.

 

 

Split the cord tidy and mark the remaining offset hole position before drilling and
plugging both location holes if necessary. Screw into the offset hole to fix the back piece of the cord tidy to the wall.


Re-assemble the cord tidy with the chain and fix it in previously marked position
with a screw through the centre hole.

Push fit a cover cap over the screw hole opening.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OPERATING THE BLIND

For a conventional roller blind, in order to lower the blind, pull the rearmost length
of chain downwards with a smooth and steady pressure. To roll the blind up do the same on the front length of chain.

For a reverse roll blind the opposite is true, to lower use the front chain and to raise, use the rear chain.

 

Child Safety - BS EN 13120 Guidelines for Roller Blinds

  1. If fixing height is unknown

    - Blind drop 5 2.5 metres, the
    chain length must be 3 1 metre.

    - Blind drop > 2.5 metres, the
    chain length must be drop of
    blind minus 1.5 metres.
  2. If fixing height known

    All blind drop sizes, distance
    between floor and bottom of chain
    must be greater than 1.5 metres.
  3. Cord tidy

    Affix a cord tidy to the wall at

    the maximum distance possible
    from the blind control mechanism
    ensuring all operating cords are
    taut (chain no more than 50mm
    apart at entry/exit of cord tidy).

 

  1. If fixing height unknown

    < Blind drop 5 2.5 metres, the chain
    length must be max 2/3 blind drop.
    Blind drop > 2.5 metres, the chain
    blind drop

    Blind drop length must be max 2/3 blind drop.
  2. If fixing height is known
    All blind drop sizes, distance between floor and bottom of chain must be greater than 0.6 meters.
  3. Chain must be fitted with 2 x
    Easybreak connectors 200mm apart
    Will break apart when excessive
    force is exerted on the chain.
