Controls

Top of Page

Cord Tilt

A cord tilt replaces the "wand" tilt with two cords and allows you to change the angle of the slats or louvers, controlling the amount of light that enters the room. Simply pull one cord to open for light and view or pull the other to close the slats for privacy.

When choosing either the left, right side position for your controls, consider how often you'll be operating the blind and the placement of furniture in your room.


Wand Tilt

Simply twist the wood or plastic cylinder shaped wand to control the tilt of a blind slat.

The tilt control allows you to change the angle of the slats or louvers and controls the amount of light that enters the room. When choosing either the left, right or same side position for your controls, consider how often you'll be operating the blind and the placement of furniture in your room.

Blinds less than 12-1/2" wide will have center tilt only and cannot be raised or lowered. Wands are used exclusively on 1" horizontals and can be used instead of "cord" tilt on 2" horizontals.

Installation

Installation Type

Inside or Outside Mount refers to whether the product will be mounted within the window frame (inside mount) or on the wall, window trim or molding surrounding the window (outside mount).

On inside mounts, deductions are taken from the width measurement to allow the product to fit inside the window frame and provide adequate operating clearance. Minimum depth requirements vary depending on product.

On outside mounts you will want to overlap or extend the window covering beyond the window opening. You will need to determine how much overlap you want and add that amount to the window opening width and / or height measurements.

Ladder

Braided

Standard ladders are thin braided cords that are used in the construction of blinds, the ladder spaces and holds the slats together. In some product styles you may have the option of substituting a cloth twill tape in place of the standard ladder or changing the color of the ladder to create a custom look.


Slat Size

Top of Page

Slats 2 1/2"

Windows aren't one-size-fits all, so we offer different slat or louver sizes. In general, small windows and French doors look best with smaller slat sizes. 2" & 2-1/2" slats suit medium and large windows.


Specialty

Cut outs

Cut outs are frequently used to avoid the bulnose tiles that protrude into kitchen and bathroom windows. Cut outs are also use when an air conditioner, heating register, or other object interferes with the slats, louvers or shades. Be sure to provide exact width, length and cut-out measurements on the order to ensure proper fit.

Please note that the exact cut out size or placement on Pleated or Cellular shade products is not guaranteed. The position of the cut out is altered when shade fabrics relax and the cell location is not in the same position as it was when the shade was manufactured. This may also cause contact fraying.


Multi Color

An upgrade allowing the use of two or more color of slat material to be used. Creating a stripe or stripes in the blind.


Valance
