Catania Frost Premium XL Roller Blind

Larger than our standard roller blind this Catania Frost Premium XL Roller Blind is designed for that extra-large window, a high-quality Dimout fabric on a heavy-duty roller blind capable of going to widths and drops standard roller blinds simply can’t reach. To account for these larger sizes the barrel and brackets are slightly larger and the 1:4 geared mechanism ensures smooth action and supreme hold wherever the fabric is positioned in the window. The maximum width our Premium XL blinds can reach is a width of 4700mm (4.7m) with a drop of 1850mm (1.85m). Naturally, as the width of the blind is reduced we’re able to increase the drop, so we can manufacture this blind to a drop of 5750mm (5.7m) if the width is 1700mm (1.7m) or less.
This blinds fabric is made from 100% Polyester and is as versatile as it is beautiful. Supplied with a White Tear Drop Bottom Bar.

Premium XL Benefits

Technical Specifications

The Premium XL Roller Blind consists of a metal barrel and wrapped plastic bottom bar with the fabric locked into the barrel to ensure it will not be dislodged in transit.

The maximum width of the blind is 4.7m (4700mm) with a drop of 2.15m (2150mm). Naturally, as the width of the blind is reduced we're able to increase to drop, so we can manufacture this blind to a drop of 5.7m (5700mm) if the width is 1.7m (1700mm) or less.

The mechanism is a 1:4 geared sidewinder mechanism with a metal chain.

Bracket Dimensions.

Naturally with XL Roller Blinds the brackets required to hold the larger blinds need to be a little "beefier" too! Brackets measure at 73mm(w) x 91.5mm(h) x 37.2mm(d).

Premium XL Wide Blind Sizes

Our Premium XL Roller Blinds can be made to a maximum width of 4700mm (4.7m) and a maximum drop of 5750mm (5.75m)

When manufacturing our blinds we take into consideration the weight of the hardware as well as the fabric to ensure smooth operation of the blind, the proportion of width/drop availability of our Premium XL blinds is displayed below:

Please note there is a chance your XL roller blind will have a join in the fabric running horizontally near the top of the blind. This join is welded to ensure no light can get through.

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 and a screwdriver. We supply the screws needed (4 long and 4 short, and 4 raw masonry plugs).

Step 1

For our wider blinds, you'll find that the brackets are the same for both sides, and this is to ensure functionality whilst the blind is in situ.

Place your first bracket into position, ensuring your blind won't get in the way of any handles or vents. The brackets can be top fixed or face fixed.

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 provided (make sure the drill bit and the wall plugs are the same size).

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.


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. Allow the blind to drop into its locked position. The bracket needs to sit between the two collars, on the part coloured blue in the illustration. Once locked in place, the blind will need to be pushed up first if it is to be removed and then pushed towards the pin end for the spring to compress, allowing you to pull the mechanism end out.

Step 3

Finally, attach the relevant child safety devices. The cord retainer should be at the maximum distance possible from the control mechanism, keeping the chain taut. 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.

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.

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.

Clip in roller blind control

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.

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 of 6mm to the width 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. 

Right-Size Guarantee
Right-Size Guarantee

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.

How does it work?

✔  If one of your blinds has been measured incorrectly, get in touch with us within 14 days and we’ll tell you how to return the blind to us.
✔  Once your blind is with us, we’ll remake it or adjust the blind to your correct measurements and send it back.
✔  Please read our terms and conditions for full details as you will incur additional costs returning the blind to us.

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

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.

Anti Bacterial

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.

Dimout fabric dims any exterior light entering the room but doesn’t block it out completely. This is really effective at cutting glare on screens without casting the room into total darkness. We find many people use this type of roller blind in living rooms as it stops sunlight from shining onto television screens or making the room too bright and uncomfortable. Generally, dimout fabric is thinner than blackout, has an open weave and comes in a variety of opacities. Opacity refers to how much light is blocked (think transparency in reverse), and we refer to its light and medium (high opacity blinds are blackout blinds) simply for ease of understanding. Light opacity dimout roller blinds are nearer voile and sheer fabrics, letting in lots of light, just filtering down direct beams of sunlight. The wonderful thing with dimout fabric is that it catches the sunlight and changes tone as the sun moves across the sky, which is simply captivating, especially when the fabric seems to glow.
