Deciding where to mount the brackets
Ensure that brackets are positioned a suitable distance away from any window, door handles or any other obstructions to allow the blind to operate smoothly.
If you're fitting the blind inside the recess you can top fix the brackets to the lintel or face fix the brackets to the window frame.
If you're fitting the blind outside the window recess ensure that measurement (C) in the diagram above is the same to ensure even window coverage
Option 1: Top Fixing
If you're fixing the bracket to the underside of the window recess (B), measure and mark the distance (D), allowing for obstructions like handles that protrude into the recess area. Hold each bracket in place and mark the hole positions. Drill a suitable hole and fit each bracket using suitable screws. Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/ surface to which you are mounting the brackets.
Option 2: Face Fixing
If your fixing the bracket to the face of the wall, or the window frame, hold each bracket in place and mark the hole positions with a pencil. Drill a suitable hole and fit each bracket using suitable screws. Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/ surface to which you are mounting the brackets.
