Frequently Asked Questions
What types of spare parts and accessories are available for blinds?
There are various types of spare parts and accessories available for blinds, including replacement slats, cords, chains, wands, brackets, and clips. Additionally, there are also safety accessories and remote control systems available for certain types of blinds.
How do I know which spare parts and accessories are compatible with my blinds?
To ensure compatibility, it is recommended to contact the company that first installed or supplied your blinds in order to purchase any spare parts or accessories. Alternatively, you can consult with a professional who can visit your property and identify the parts required on your behalf.
Can I replace a broken slat on my blinds, or do I need to replace the entire blind?
In most cases, it is possible to replace a broken vertical blind slat (louvre) on your blinds. In most cases, it would be best to contact the original supplier or your blind to do so. The availability of matching replacement fabric will depend on whether the fabric itself is still available since over-time most fabric suppliers re-fresh their collections by introducing new fabrics and discontinuing existing fabrics. You should also consider that a replacement louvre will more than likely be sourced from a different batch of fabric and fabrics can vary slightly in colour from batch to batch. Buying a full set of replacement vertical blind slats is a great and cost-effective way of freshening up your blinds and your decor. Venetian blind slats are more difficult to replace and it can often be more cost-effective to replace the full blind.
Are there different sizes of cords and chains for different types of blinds?
Yes, there are different sizes of cords and chains available for different types of blinds. It is important to choose the correct size to ensure proper function and safety. It would be best to request a visit from a professional installer if you are unsure or contact the supplier that provided the blinds originally.
Are there any safety accessories available for blinds?
