Teramo White XL Mains Electric Roller Blind
The Teramo White 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 canÂ€Â™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 isnÂ€Â™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 weÂ€Â™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 blindÂ€Â™s 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.

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.
