Are Perfect Fits Right For You?
Rubber Bead Check
Check that your window has rubber beading between the window frame and the glass. The beading can sometimes be hidden underneath the window frame.
If your window does not contain any rubber beading then Perfect Fit Blinds will not be suitable for your blinds.
Rubber Beading Width
Measure the rubber beading and ensure it is less than 6mm wide. For your measurement, measure from the edge of the window frame to the edge of the glazing.
If your rubber beading is wider than 6mm then Perfect Fit Blinds will not be suitable for your window.
Rubber Bead Depth
Take a card and gently insert it between the rubber beading and the glass. For Perfect Fit Blinds to be suitable, you need to be able to push the card in at least 1cm.
If you’re struggling to insert the card, rub some washing up liquid onto the card.
Measure from the edge of the rubber beading which touches the glass and ensure there is a minimum of 2.5cm clearance from any obstruction, such as handles, hinges or vents.
Measuring Your Window
When measuring for perfect fit blinds, you need to measure the width, height and the depth.
Measure the Depth of the Window Frame
Place a card flat against the frame of your window or door, leaving some of the card overlapping the glass. Measure the gap between the glass and the card, this will be your frame depth.
Frame depths typically range between 1.8cm (18mm) and 3cm (30mm).
Measure the Width
Measure the glass of your window at the top, middle and bottom. Take the smallest measurement as your width.
Don’t include the rubber beading or the frame when measuring.
Measure the Drop
Measure the glass of your window on the left, middle and right. Take the smallest measurement as the drop.
Now go to your chosen product, select your frame depth and enter your width and drop (height) measurements.
