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.
Why do I need this Insurance?
We can’t accept returns or provide refunds for blinds that are mis-measured 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!
How does it work?
✔ Purchase Right-Size Guarantee when you place your order
✔ 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.

Measuring Curtain Tracks
We’ve made it super easy – just supply us with the width that you wish the track to be and enter it into our website. There are no brackets on the end of our track so we do not need to make any deductions to the track to make it fit. The width measurement you supply is the width that the track will be made to.
We recommend using a metal tape measure to ensure accuracy. For cord drawn tracks please measure the drop of the track as well so that we are able to ensure the cord will be made to the correct length and in keeping with child safety regulations.

Heavy Weight Curtain Track Technical Details
The Heavy Weight Curtain Track is a hand-drawn aluminium curtain track which is white powder-coated. It holds gliders which are supplied at 12 per metre.
The track is 37mm from the top of the track to the glider, and so deduct this measurement when working out the drop for your curtains.
The track and the bracket combined protrudes 51mm from the surface it is fixed to.
Installing a Heavy Weight Curtain Track
Installing a Heavy Weight Hand Drawn Curtain Track couldn’t be easier – we’ve done all the hard work in the manufacturing process, so all you have to do is unbox the track and follow these simple instructions!
Attach the brackets to the track. The brackets should be 100mm in from the end of the window track and spaced at no more than 600mm apart. Your track will come with the necessary number of brackets based on its length. Use pan head screws and use a washer if possible.
If you are top fixing this track, simply hold the track in the place and drill in the necessary places for the brackets.
If you are face fixing, use the track with the brackets on to mark where you will need to drill and fix the brackets using appropriate fittings. Once you have drilled your hole and insert a raw plug, attach the bracket. Then put the track onto the brackets by pushing them in, and then raise the track into the desired position and fix it to the ceiling using appropriate screws. See below for how to fix your brackets according to whether it is face fix or top fix.
When attaching make sure the locator is pointing downwards. Once the track is attached turn the locator to the side so that it sits flush with the track and secures the track onto the brackets.
