Teramo Beige XL Mains Electric Roller Blind
The Teramo Beige XL Mains Electric Roller Blind is a high quality Screen fabric on a heavy duty mains electric roller blind capable of going to widths and drops standard electric roller blinds can't reach. To account for these larger sizes the barrel and brackets are slightly larger and uses mains electricity to operate, making it ideal for high installations where it isn't always easy to access the blind to charge a battery. The maximum width our XL mains electric blinds can reach is a width of 4850mm (4.85m) with a drop of 2150mm (2.15m). 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 (5.75m) if the width is 2150mm (2.15m) or less.
This blinds fabric is made from 70% PVC, 30% Polyester and is as versatile as it is beautiful. Supplied with a White Tear Drop Bottom Bar.

These blinds need to be hardwired to mains electricity to power the motor but it is controlled by remote control (not included). By default the motor is located on the right-hand side of the blind, but this can be changed to the left side should you require – just get in touch after your order has been placed. The reason it is powered by mains electricity is so that it can be installed at heights that may be out of reach for a charger or chain.
As a result, we strongly recommend that the wiring is done by a qualified electrician. Please note this blind is supplied with a 2m AC 230v 50/60hz wire but not with a 3-pin plug. We are not able to provide longer cable and we don't have the capcity to sell 3-pin plugs.
The XL Mains Electric Blind consists of a metal barrel with a diameter of 53mm. The brackets are 70mm from front to back, 90mm from top to bottom and the top fixing area is 38mm wide.
The maximum width can be 4700mm (4.7m) with a drop of 2150mm (2.15m). 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.
Please note this blind is supplied with a 2m AC 230v 50/60hz wire but not with a 3-pin plug.
Supplied with white metal brackets. The motor is concealed within the barrel of the blind and has an inbuilt receiver.
Nominal Voltage: 230v – 50HZ
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).
As standard, our window blinds are awesome, and for many of our customers, this is just what they’re looking for. However, as a manufacturer and experts in made-to-measure blinds, we can offer you the chance to go further, fine-tuning your blind and customising it to meet your exact requirements.
Our fine-tuning options are all optional, and your blind will function perfectly without them, but if chain options, coloured bottom bars and chain lengths calculated to suit your installation height rock your world, read on! Below is an explanation for each option available on this blind, but remember, we’re only a quick call away if you have any questions.
If you’re ordering multiple blinds of a similar size and colour, naming them can be a handy way of identifying which one is which when coming to fit them. Enter a blind name or label, and we’ll include this on the sticker of the packaging to help you identify it.
Direction of Roll
As standard, our blinds are Standard Rolled. The fabric falls from the back of the blind, meaning the fabric will be close to the window. Reverse Roll makes the fabric fall from the front of the blind, which can be handy if you're trying to avoid window handles etc, as well as being purely aesthetical. If you have a preference, you can let us know!
As standard, the motor is fitted to the right hand side of the blind. However, you can choose for the motor and thus the charging point, to be fitted to the left side of the blind. This could be beneficial when charging your motor.
As standard, this roller blinds come with a colour-matched aluminium teardrop bottom bar, as detailed in the product description. This fine-tuning option allows you to change this to an aluminium teardrop-shaped bottom bar in white, silver or black or an aluminium round-shaped bottom bar in white or silver. Alternatively, you can select a fully wrapped fabric bottom bar where the fabric is shown front and back. Aluminium bottom bars are not fabric-covered.
White Aluminium Round
Silver Aluminium Round
Fully Fabric Wrapped
White Aluminium Teardrop
Silver Aluminium Teardrop
Black Aluminium Teardrop
Side Guide Wire System
This option allows you to select a side guiding system that sees a 2mm silver wire fitted to the top of the recess or ceiling down to the window sill or floor, that runs through the bottom bar of the blind. This prevents the blind from moving anywhere except up or down. This is ideal for areas prone to breezes or if the blind is fitted at a slight angle. Wire system is available in either Black, Silver or White. Tear Drop Bottom Bar MUST be selected for this system.
Your blind will not come with a remote control. Remote controls are sold separately. You can add a Remote Control to your blind order by selecting any of the following:
Single Channel Hand Held Remote
6 Channel Hand Held Remote Control
16 Channel Hand Held Remote Control
Single Channel Wall Mounted Remote Control Switch
Dual Channel Wall Mounted Remote Control Switch
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. For recess fit cord and wand-operated metal venetian blinds, we will make a 4mm deduction to the given width measurement. For recess fit chain operated metal venetian blinds, we will make a 6mm deduction to the width measurement. This is to ensure the blind fits comfortably within the recess, and you do not need to account for these measurements. 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 XL Mains Electric Blinds
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).
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.
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.
Step 3 ** IMPORTANT **
Your XL Mains Electric blind is supplied with a 2m power cable running from the blind and should be installed to the mains supply by a fully qualified electrician.
The blind is supplied without a UK 3-Pin Plug.
How to programme your XL Mains Electric Roller Blind
The aim of the game here is to get your remote control talking to your blind so that you can recline in shaded bliss, controlling your blind with the touch of a button. To get there you need to follow these simple steps.
First thing we need to do is pair the controller to the motor, think of it like connecting a bluetooth device to your phone (only it’s not bluetooth and it’s easier!) On the motor, insert a small screwdriver into the hole marked (see fig 2) the prog button is located at the control end of the blind, (where the mains cable comes out and the small anterior is located, press and hold for one second. This is the ‘PROG’ button. The motor will shunt once. On the remote, press the ‘Up’ button and the motor will shunt again.
Changing the direction of travel
Now, depending on how the blind was installed, the motor’s world can become a bit topsy-turvy. Up means down, down means up, leaving you scratching your head in confusion. Don’t worry, it’s easy to fix. This step lets you tell the blind which direction you want it to move in when you press the relevant buttons on the remote.
Press and hold the “STOP” button on the transmitter for five seconds. The motor will shunt once. Press the ‘Down’ button and the motor will shunt again. Everything has been restored to its rightful place.
The remote is speaking with the motor, the motor knows which way is up and which way is down, so now you need to tell it where the top and bottom of the window is.
Using the thin screwdriver, press the “PROG” button on the back of the remote, holding it for one second. The motor will shunt once.
Now you need to adjust the blind to the spot where you want it to stop every time the blind rises by using the up and down buttons. Once it is in place, press the “PROG” button on the back of the remote for one second, saving the limit stop.
To set the bottom limit stop, press the down button until it is in place, press and hold the “PROG” button for one second and the motor will shunt. Press and hold the “PROG” button again for one second and it will shunt again, indicating the bottom limit stop is set.
Stop points in between
This is the exciting part, the reason you opted for an electric blind in the first place. With the top and bottom limits set, you can add up to four more stop points in between, so that the blind will stop at various heights.
To do this, adjust the blind to the spot where you want it to stop every time the blind rises or lowers by using the up and down buttons. Once it is in place, press the “PROG” button on the back of the remote, the motor will shunt one. Press the same “PROG” button again and the motor will shunt once more saving the limit stop.
The motor can store a maximum of six stops, with the furthest two called the UP and DOWN limit stops. The stops in between are called stop points. You can’t set stop points outside of the limit stops. You are able to finer tune the stop points’ positioning, or delete individual stop points separately. Pressing the Up or Down button twice within one second on the remote will instruct the motor to go to the top or bottom without stopping at the middle stop points.
Delete Stop Points
Run the motor to the stop point you wish to delete. Press the “PROG” button on the back of the remote for seven seconds. The motor will shunt once and within seven seconds it will shunt again, indicating that the stop point has been cleared.
Deleting All Limit and Stop Points
By deleting all of the memories stored in the motor, you will be reverting it back to factory settings.
Method 1 : Press the ‘Stop’ button for five seconds. The motor will shunt once. Press and hold the “PROG” button on the back of the remote for seven seconds and the motor will shunt again. The motor will shunt twice once more, indicating that the memory has been cleared.
Method 2 : Press the “PROG” button on the motor for 7 seconds. The motor will first shunt once and then again after 7 seconds indicating the memory has been cleared.
And there you have it: you’ve programmed your DotcomBlinds blind and you’re all set to enjoy your blind in electrical bliss.
‘Why do I have to do this?’
‘Can't you have done it for me when you made my blind?’
Good point and the short answer is yes! However, knowing where you want to set your stops is a completely personal thing and if we did it for you then it could cause you frustration when installing and operating the blind and you'd end up performing a factory reset and doing it yourself! Instead we test every motor and controller and then in the final stage of testing, we reset them. This means we have peace of mind knowing that all's good and you'll be able to set it up the way you want.
