Ventilation and protection against heat accumulation

To avoid window glass and fabric damage, sufficient ventilation space must be retained between the pleated blind and the glass surface of the window. This is especially important for installation within the glazing bead. Insufficient ventilation can lead to the accumulation of condensed water, which in turn may stain the fabric or cause mould. There is no warranty on damages to the fabric caused by condensation, detergents or insect soiling.

Depth allowances for mounting blinds in the window recess or in the window glazing bead:

Our blinds profiles are very slim with a rail depth of less than 25 mm, which means they can be installed even where space is tight. General minimum depths are as follows:

For all measurements, it is best to measure in two to three places for both the width and the height, and use the smallest measurements of each. Use a metal tape measure and ensure it is not bent or twisted.
