WINDOW SHADE BUYING GUIDE

Whilst Exterior Window Shades are designed primarily for use on exterior windows, they are equally at home as Drop Shades on pergolas, patios, verandas etc.

Your Exterior Window Shade – Roll Up comes complete with fixing accessories including fixing screws to secure the head-rail, a corrosion resistant rope cleat with fixing screws and two base rail snap-in anchor plates with fixing screws.

The only tools you will require for quick and easy installation are a 1/8” drill bit, a Phillips Head screwdriver and a pencil or felt tip marker.

We all know the value of good blinds, especially on a Saturday morning after a festive night before. But only recently have we cottoned on to the benefits of having exterior roll up blinds. Outside, huh? Well if you like to keep your house nice and cool then say Exterior Roll Up Blinds. By reflecting and absorbing solar energy outside the house up to 95% of interior space heating is reduced. With an easily operated rope and pulley they can be put up and taken down in no time at all, and the long-lasting knitted fabric comes with a 5-year warranty against UV degradation. So go on, join the cool kids!

WARNING:
Blind Cords may create a strangulation hazard for young children. KEEP BLIND CORDS OUT OF REACH OF YOUNG CHILDREN.

Installation Instructions

  • Once you have selected the spot for your Exterior Window Shade keep it in the rolled up position and hold the aluminium head-rail in place where you would like it installed.
  • Mark the spots where you intend drilling holes for the fixing screws. Check the base material behind the head-rail to ensure that it will accept the self-tapping screws.
  • Remove the Exterior Window Shade and using the 1/8” drill bit, drill holes in the base material where marked.
  • Re-position the Exterior Window Shade and using the Phillips Head screwdriver, fix the self- tapping screws to secure the Exterior Window Shade.
  • Release the Exterior Window Shade Fabric to fall full length. To install base anchor plates, apply light tension to the Exterior Window Shade, snap the anchor plates onto each end of the base rail and mark where the anchor plates are to be fixed with the screws provided.
  • Using the 1/8” drill bit, drill into the base material and fix the anchor plates into place using the screws provided.

  • Lock the base rail into the anchor plates and secure the Exterior Window Shade in the fully drawn (down) position.
  • To attach the rope cleat, hold the cleat in position, mark holes, drill then screw the rope cleat into place using the screws provided. The cleat should be positioned so that the pull cord will be out of reach of young children. Pull the cord taut and wind it tightly around the cleat to hold the Window Shade in place.
