Normal Roller Blind Operation
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR BLINDS
Roller blinds are finished without side hems and have ultrasonically sealed edges. Please ensure that your blind rolls up and down in a straight fashion by raising and lowering the blind with moderate speed. Avoid letting the chain rub on the edge of the fabric as this can result in fraying.
Do not pull on the fabric to operate the blind, use the chain provided. Ensure that you never unroll the total length of the fabric from the roller. When rolling up or down, the chain should be held in a vertical position. Avoid using excess force when operating the blind, as this may cause damage to the chain mechanics and/or fabric.
Following these steps will ensue that:
- The fabric is not damaged
- The amount of noise is limited when opening the blind
- The blind will lift evenly
If your blind is not level, it may start tracking (or telescoping) to one side. Rather than rolling evenly, the fabric will gather towards one side as it is rolled up. Here are a few tips to fix a tracking blind.
If the width & drop of your blind is greater than approximately 2100mm x 3000mm, the top tube of your blind may dip slightly. This could result in the centre of your fabric creating a 'V' shape from the top to the bottom. This effect is natural and will be more visible in certain lights.
