Moisture resistant blinds do not absorb or retain water
How to Measure for Slats Only
If you are simply replacing your existing slats then measuring couldn’t be any easier!
Simply take your trusty old tape measure and measure the total length (drop) of the fabric. For the geeks among us, this is referred to in the trade as shoulder to shoulder (or hem to hem).
If you aren’t able to measure the existing slats measure from the bottom of the headrail hook (peg) to where you would like the fabric to finish.
Drop measurements will need to be taken in centimetres (cm) for replacement slats.
Just a little note.. think about where you would like your replacement slats to sit above the bottom, if you make the measurement too long you run the risk of them either bunching up on the bottom or being dragged across when operating your blind.
Our range of Made to Measure Replacement Vertical Slats can be manufactured in two versions to suit best suit your window.
Slat with Chains and Weights
The no-fuss ready-to-go option! Your replacement slats will be provided with weights ensuring your slats drop correctly along with a plastic chain keeping the slats nice and neat and preventing them from moving excessively.
Slat with Enclosed Weights (no Chains)
This is the perfect option when the use of a chain between the slats isn’t desired. Each replacement slat is supplied with a 21g weight sealed into the bottom of the slat ensuring your slat hangs taught.
Sometimes you just need some peace of mind when you come to place an order for your blinds. With DotcomBlind’s Right-Size Guarantee you can have just that. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will replace a blind with the correct size if you get the measurements wrong when you order. Please note, the Right Size Guarantee excludes Cassette Blinds.
Why do I need this Insurance?
We can’t accept returns or provide refunds for blinds that are mismeasured because all of our blinds are made to measure and so the onus is on the customer to get the measurements right for their blinds. Sometimes you might just be having an off-day, get your centimetres and inches mixed up and end up with a blind that is nigh-on useless. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will take that blind back, remake it to the correct size for you and send it back, saving you from having to buy a totally new blind! The Right Size Guarantee covers all made-to-measure blinds and curtains except our Cassette Blinds.

Why order samples?We always recommend ordering samples to ensure you fall in love with the fabric or slat. Screen resolution and brightness settings vary and you may find some fabrics look a little different in real life to how they appear on a screen. You can hold a sample in your hands, feel the fabrics, the weave and see the opacity before your very eyes, something you can’t recreate online.
We’ve made every effort to accurately portray the fabric realistically, but you can never be too careful.

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 vertical 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) and cord tidies are supplied with every chain and cord operated blind
We offer a Child Safe Plus feature with our vertical blinds, which is an upgrade to remove the chain mechanism and replace it with a cordless means of operating the blind.
The wand operated function of the blind allows the louvres to be drawn across the window led by the wand and adjusted into place by twisting the wand. If child safety is a particular issue the chain that links the bottom of the louvres together can be removed easily too by simply unclipping them.
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.
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.
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.
Ideal for children’s play areas, communal areas, bathrooms and homes with pets. Our Anti-Bacterial, anti-microbial blinds are treated to kill bacteria. Biosafe® is the international accreditation standard for an antimicrobial formula that ensures the effective inhibition of infection. What’s more, it is an inherent formula, which means it will not wear off over time. This formula is used in hospitals, care homes, and health care centres across the country.
The term anti-bacterial can sometimes throw up visions of grey, lifeless blinds – however, we have a huge number of anti-bacterial blinds perfect for your home. In particular, the roller blinds range is a popular choice for tackling bacteria in the home.
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.
