Technical Specifications

Our roller blinds are made to the highest standards based on over 30 years of manufacturing experience. As a result, you can rest assured knowing you are purchasing a roller blind that not only looks great, it is built to last.

For recess fit blinds we deduct 2mm from the width to account for the brackets.

All our width measurements are based on the bracket to bracket size you give us when the order is placed, all roller blinds have a fabric width that is 40mm smaller than the given width measurement, to allow for the mechanism, pin end and brackets in the overall finished width.

The roller blind will comprise of a white plastic bottom bar that is half-wrapped, meaning the fabric will cover the front of the bottom bar but not the back. The bar is 30mm high and 14.4mm wide.

The chain mechanism is white plastic and works on a 1:1 ratio, meaning one revolution of the chain is one revolution of the mechanism. The chain is nickel-plated and each ball has a diameter of 4.5mm with a link length of 1.75mm.

If you select the crank-operated option, the blind is supplied with a white plastic crank handle that hooks on to the crank mechanism. This is viewed as a child-safe plus option as it removes any risk of entanglement as there are no chains present on the blind at all.

The brackets are white aluminium and, if selected, the bracket covers are white plastic. Screws and plaster wall-plugs are supplied with every blind to help with the fitting of the blind.

The fabric is locked into the metal barrel, ensuring it is can’t be removed or easily shifted. The barrel is made from aluminium and increases in size depending on the square meterage of fabric. As the blind gets bigger, so does the barrel. This is to prevent bowing in the barrel as the fabric weight increases, ensuring a perfectly straight barrel regardless of the size.

AVAILABLE IN WIDE WIDTH
AVAILABLE IN WIDE WIDTH

Wider width option

We can make this roller blind to a width of 3450mm and a maximum drop of 4250mm. This is above the sizes offered by many other retailers and this is because we automatically upgrade the barrel and mechanism to a more heavy-duty type to accommodate the extra weight from the fabric – at no hidden cost to you.

There is a chance your extra wide roller blind will have a join in the fabric running horizontally near the top of the blind. For wide blackout blinds particularly, this join is welded to ensure no light can get through.

Control Options
Control Options

Choosing the best control option for you

We provide three control options with our roller blinds, meaning you can choose the right means of operating your blind to suit your needs, location of the window and the room you choose to install it in.

Chain

A chain operated roller blind has a safe breakaway chain that is designed to come apart under excessive weight, providing a huge amount of safety. Due it the chain being made from metal, it has a substantially longer lifespan compared to the plastic alternatives. A chain operated blind boasts a smooth, quality action and an air-cooled design that make it a joy to operate.

Crank

A crank operated roller blind removes the need for cords and chains thanks to our innovative solution: a crank and handle. By turning the crank handle, the blind is raised or lowered, and on many models, the crank handle can be removed entirely. Easy to use and incredibly child safe, a crank operated roller blind is an easy-to-use way to open and close a blind.

How To Measure
How To Measure

How to Measure

Now, you can’t mess this one up. It’s what we call ‘easy’ here at DotcomBlinds. But just in case you need some help, follow this quick guide.

First thing's first, identify whether your blind is going inside or outside of a recess. 

Inside the recess

A recess fit blind means you supply us with the width and drop of your recess – from top to bottom and wall to wall. We make deductions to account for the brackets to ensure your blind fits within the recess perfectly.

To measure a roller blind to fit inside the recess of your standard window, simply measure the full width and the height of the recess. Then input those measurements into the product page with your order selecting the ‘recess’ option. We’ll do the rest, leaving you the well-deserved excuse to put your feet up, you worked hard for it after all!

Don’t be tempted to deduct any measurements, we do this for you. Make sure you use a metal tape measure; a cloth one can stretch and give you more millimetres per centimetre than a pound-shop ruler. Also, take your measurements in three places and give us the smallest (if there is a smallest). You will find that some recesses shift and settle over time.

Outside the recess

A blind going outside of a recess is usually called an exact fit blind. An exact fit blind means we won’t make any deductions to the width or drop measurements. Exact fit is the bracket to bracket measurement and is commonly found installed outside of a recess. The size you give us is the size your blind is made to.

If you want your blind to hang outside the recess, measure the height and width but be sure to add some overlap to reduce light leakage. This overlap should be about 70mm at the top and bottom and 50mm each side, ensuring you suffer no dazzling strips of sunlight once your blind is happily installed. Please select the ‘exact’ size option when ordering. 

How to Install
How to Install

How to Install

You overcame the measurement minefield and now you must face the final challenge – installing your roller blind. Honestly, it isn’t half as bad as you think it is, and with this very easy guide, you’ll be done in no time. Grab a cuppa and have a quick read through our instructions to familiarise yourself before you get started. The tools you’ll need are: drill with 5mm drill bit, tape measure, suitable fixing plugs, screws and a screwdriver.

Step 1

Before you begin match the brackets up to the blind. You’ll notice one end has a circle and the other has a cross shaped opening. The control end goes into the cross shaped bracket and the pin-end goes into the circle. Doing this will ensure you don’t fit the blind back to front. Place your first bracket in the position you wish to fit the blind to. Ensure your blind won’t get in the way of any handles or vents and adjust the positioning of the bracket to accommodate this.

Measure the distance from the window to the bracket and mark the spot you need to drill, and repeat this on the other side, ensuring the brackets are level (a spirit level can help gauge this). Drill the hole, starting with a smaller pilot hole and then going to the wider 5mm drill bit. You should use a thin wood drill bit if attaching it to the window frame and consider using the smaller screws supplied. If you are fitting the blind to the wall, use a masonry drill bit with the wall plugs supplied (make sure the drill bit and the wall plugs are the same size).

The alternative way of installing your blind is to attach these brackets to the ceiling or top of the recess with the blind hanging below, which is known as top fix. Again, drill a pilot hole first before using the wider drill bit and relevant wall plugs.

Important Note: Ensure there is enough space at the pin-end bracket (the end opposite the mechanism) to allow for free movement of the barrel. The pin-end of the blind is sprung to allow for easy removal of the blind and should not be fully compressed as this can cause the barrel to rub on the bracket and make operation stiff. This can result in the blind being hard to operate and for the chain to break.



Step 2

Once the brackets are up you can add the bracket covers if you ordered them. These optional extras will simply slide onto the brackets, giving your blind a professional and clean finishing touch if outside of the recess. The bracket covers are designed to have a nice tight fit, if you ever need to remove them insert a flat screwdriver into the cutout at the bottom inside of the cover and twist, this will release the cover. Note: If you wish to use bracket covers on a blind going into the recess, be sure to account for the size of the cover before screwing in the brackets as it might be a tight fit.

Now it is time to fit the blind. First, attach the end opposite the controls (known as the pin-end), push gently against the pin-end to suppress the pin, lift the control end up and attach to the control end bracket.

Next Steps

Depending on the control type you selected from your blinds - the next steps will differ, but we've got you covered...

Standard Roller Blinds

attach the relevant child safety devices. The cord retainer should be at the maximum distance possible from the control mechanism, keeping the chain taut (but free enough to operate the blind smoothly). Put the retaining device on the wall, mark the hole with a pencil, drill the hole, insert a wall plug and screw the device to the wall. And there you go – your blind is safely up, so all that’s left is to give it a quick test.

Crank Operated Roller Blinds

Unpack the crank handle and attach the hook on the end of the handle to the eyelet on the blind’s mechanism. The crank handle is designed to fold out to create a handle to easily rotate the shaft, thus operating the blind smoothly and easily. If the blind is top fix, the pole clip should go within the recess to keep the crank handle out of the way, or on the wall close to the edge of the blind if it is a face fix blind. This is attached easily: simply mark on the wall with a pencil where you wish to hang the crank, drill the holes and insert a wall plug into each hole and screw the device to the wall!

Changing the Roll

If you wish to change the way the blind is rolled, which is sometimes a good idea if you are trying to avoid window handles or other protruding objects, then simply unravel the blind all the way to the metal barrel and then re-roll it in the direction you want. Note: Make sure your hands are clean, you wouldn’t want to mark you nice new shiny blind! It’s also a good idea to have your hands at equal lengths to ensure that when you re-roll the blind the roll is even, this will prevent any gather at one end and exposed barrel at the other.

Child Safety

Ensuring our products are child safe is a priority for all of us at DotcomBlinds. As a result, our blinds are child safe by design, with built-in safety mechanisms to help reduce the risk of an accident. These mechanisms specific to roller blinds are:
All chains provided with our products are made at a maximum length of one metre
Chain tensioners (or p-clips as they're also known) are supplied with every chain operated blind to hold the chain out of the way of children

We offer Child Safe Plus features with our roller blinds, which are an upgrade to remove the chain mechanism and replace it with a cordless means of operating the blind.

Our crank operated roller blind option replaces the chain with a detachable crank handle which hooks onto the mechanism and is turned, lowering or raising the blind as it goes. The crank handle can be unhooked and put out of reach of children and ultimately removes any chance of loops which are the biggest risk-potential when it comes to blinds.

We also offer an electric blind option which means the roller blind is controlled by remote control. Again, this removes any chains or cords and also makes operating a blind more convenient.

If you have any questions around child safety and our blinds, please do not hesitate to get in touch, we're always happy to help.

Moisture resistant blinds are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there may be a lot of moisture present. Our Moisture Resistant material is rot-proof and Biosafe®. This is because it will not absorb and retain any water under normal circumstances, which is key to preventing the build-up of bacteria or mold in these warm, damp spaces.

We offer a range of moisture resistant blinds – including bathroom blinds, kitchen blinds, and roller blinds. With our measuring guides and unparalleled customer service, you can ensure your blinds are perfect for the room they are used in. 

 

Moisture Resistant

These blinds are super easy to clean and perfect for busy households; simply wipe over with a dry cloth to remove dust and any debris or use a damp cloth to remove stains. Ideal for homes with kids or areas close to food preparation (including use around the kitchen sink). Please consider the type of fabric best suited to the situation, for example, PVC fabric blind may be a better choice is you plan to clean your blind more vigorously. If you’re unsure of the type of fabric you will need, please feel free to order as many free samples as you need.

Wipe Clean

Fire retardancy is a worthy feature to look out for with a window blind. A fire-retardant blind provides peace of mind, knowing that you have a product in place that will protect your loved ones. It is a high quality and safe alternative in case somebody leaves a candle on the windowsill, or you install a blind close to your hob in the kitchen. This material will only smolder if presented with a flame, and once the source of heat has been removed, it is designed to self-extinguish.

This can be added to your fabric by selecting this add-on at the checkout.

If you are unsure about whether the type of blind you are interested in is fire retardant, please speak to our customer service team.

Fire Retardant

Just what you need when you retreat indoors on a scorching summer’s day. Our solar reflective fabric has a special backing that bounces back the sun’s rays. This reduces heat and glare building up in a room beyond the abilities of a regular blind, ideal for rooms exposed to a lot of sunlight, giving you an element of solar control. Please note that the backs of these fabrics will appear different to the front of the blind due to the solar reflective properties.

Solar Reflective
Wide Width Option blinds are window blinds that can be made to sizes above and beyond standard sizing as one single blind. Wide Width Roller Blinds can be made to a maximum width of 3450mm with a drop of up to 4250mm. For Vertical Blinds, we can make your blind to a maximum width of 4000mm with a drop of 4000mm.
