    Frequently Asked Questions about Cordless Blinds

    Are cordless blinds worth it?

    The term ‘cordless blinds’ tends to refer to blind types that do not require a cord (or chain) for operation. Instead, they may be operated using handles on the hem bars, crank handles or motors. If you're searching for a safe, fashionable, and easy-to-use window treatment, cordless blinds are an excellent choice. Not only are they safer for families with young children or pets, but they also have a sleek appearance that complements any design scheme.

     

    How do cordless blinds stay in place?

    Depending on whether your cordless blind is operated by a tab handle on the hem bar, a crank mechanism or a motor, the blind will be held in it’s current position using the motor or crank mechanism. Blinds with handles on the hem bar, tend to rely on some form of tensioning cords internal to the blind to maintain their current position.


    How do cordless blinds pull down?

    Cordless blinds with a tab handle on the hem bar can be lowered simply by pulling down on the bottom rail using the tab handle. Conversely, raising cordless blinds is as easy as sliding your hand under the bottom rail and lifting it up. Blinds with motors can be operated using a handset or app. And blinds with crank handles are operated by winding the handle.

     

    Do cordless blinds last longer?

    Cordless blinds operated with motors and cranks can be more durable than cord or chain-operated blinds. By comparison, blinds with tab handles that rely on internal tensioning cords may be susceptible to longer-term fraying of the tensioning cords, which may lead to them needing re-cording. However, if treated with care, all types of cordless blinds should have a long life.


    Why won't my cordless blinds stay up?

    A common problem with cordless spring-operated roller blinds is that they can drop down on their own and refuse to go back up if the spring tension fails. This indicates that your spring is completely relaxed. The spring may need to be re-tensioned or replaced. You should contact the supplier of the blind for re-tensioning instructions.


    Are cordless blinds durable?

    Shades without cords are more safe, long-lasting, and easy to use. Hanging cords or operating chains present a danger to small children and whilst such chains and cords now legally have to be fitted with child safety devices, the best option as far as child safety goes is to opt for blinds without any operating cords or chains.  Whether operated instead by motor, crank handle, spring or tab handle, cordless blinds can be durable. Those with handles or springs can be opened or closed just by using your hands to pull them up or down. Those with motors or crank handles require no contact with the blind itself, reducing or eliminating much of the wear and tear involved in their operation. The most durable cordless blinds are motorised or crank operated. 

     

    Can you wash cordless blinds?

    Dusting and cleaning are typically all that's needed to keep cordless blinds looking brand new. Spot treatment with warm water and a light detergent can remove even deeply ingrained stains. Refer to the fabric manufacturer's care instructions for details on how to clean each fabric.


    Why are my cordless blinds so hard to pull down?

    Depending on the method of operation, if your cordless blinds suddenly stop lowering, you can try a few things to get them working again. Firstly, always check for obstructions that are stopping the blind from lowering. For motorised blinds, check the power or battery of your motor, or if the remote's batteries need replacing. For crank-operated blinds, ensure that the crank mechanism of the blind is securely located in the roller tube. For cord-tensioned or spring-operated blinds, difficulty in pulling your blind down may be a sign that the blind is over-tensioned. Refer to the manufacturer for instructions on how to re-tension.

     

    How do cordless blinds stay up?

    Typically, for blinds operated using a tab handle on the hem bar or by moving the hem bar itself, there is a tensioning system or spring concealed within the top rail of a cordless blind or shade. This mechanism prevents the blind from travelling down under its own weight. Motorised blinds and crank-operated cordless blinds are held in the up position by the motor or crank mechanism itself. These are systems that will only move up or down when power is applied to the motor, or when the crank mechanism is wound by the handle.

     

    How do cordless roller blinds work?

    Cordless roller blinds use a spring-loaded mechanism within the roller tube that allows the blinds to be raised or lowered without the need for operating cords. Instead, the blinds are operated by simply pushing or pulling the bottom rail of the blind to raise or lower it to the desired height. Cordless roller blinds from the Perfect Fit and INTU brands are installed without screws directly to the frame of the window, up against the glass. Their hem bars run within side frames or side channels, that allow the blind to be operated to any position between the top and the bottom.

     

    Are cordless roller blinds safe for children and pets?

    Yes, cordless roller blinds are generally considered to be safer for children and pets than blinds operated by cords or chains. Corded blinds can pose a strangulation hazard if the cords are within reach of very young children or pets. Whilst this risk will be mitigated by using safety breakers or tensioning anchors and ensuring that chains and cords are an appropriate distance from floor level, cordless blinds eliminate this risk altogether and are considered to be ‘safe by design’.

     

    Can cordless roller blinds be motorised?

    Yes, cordless roller blinds can be motorised for added convenience and ease of use. Motorised cordless blinds can be controlled with a remote, a smartphone app, or a voice assistant, allowing you to raise or lower the blinds from anywhere in the home, or even outside the home. With the appropriate accessories, such as a home hub, motorised cordless blinds can even be programmed to open and close automatically at set times of the day.


    Do cordless blackout blinds completely block out light?

    Cordless blackouts are designed to block out as much light as possible. The fabric used for these blinds is specifically designed to block out light and prevent it from passing through the window. However, some light may still seep around the edges of the blinds. Some blind types have bigger gaps around their edges than others. Some types include cassettes and side channels specifically designed to reduce the ingress of light. So, light ingress will vary according to the blind type and features, and how well they have been measured and installed. If the light exclusion is critical to you, we would suggest consulting with your blinds retailer to select the best product for your needs.
     

    How do I use a Velux remote control?

    To use a Velux remote control, you will need to first pair it with the blinds if the blind is not already paired. Once the remote control is paired with the blinds, you can use it to open and close the blinds using the up and down buttons on the handset, simply pressing the buttons for a second.
     

    Are Perfect fit window blinds cordless blinds?

    Yes, perfect fit window blinds are cordless blinds. The majority of perfect fit blind types are operated by a handle on the hember. Certain types can also be motorised using battery powered motor.
     

    Are white wooden shutters cordless?

    White wooden shutters are cordless. Our Perfect Fit Shutters are operated with a cordless tilt wand which is attached to each of the slats in the shutter in order to operate them all in unison. If you are looking for a safe option for homes with children or pets, then cordless ‘no drill’ Perfect Fit Shutters are a good choice. Rather than being made of real wood, they are made from a robust and hard-wearing PVC which gives them the look of painted white wooden shutters but makes them wipe clean and waterproof.
     

    Are cordless skylight blinds safe?

    Yes, cordless skylight blinds are safe. They do not have any cords that could be a hazard, especially for children and pets. You can open and close cordless skylight blinds using a wand or, where the blind is motorised, a remote control, without having to touch the blinds themselves.
     

    Are there cordless no drill blinds for the bathroom?

    Yes, there are cordless no drill blinds for the bathroom available. These blinds are typically installed using a grip fit headrail or clip-fix beading brackets, so there is no need to drill any holes in your bathroom window frame or in any surrounding tiling. Grip Fit blinds are a good option for window recesses with tiling which have enough depths for a standard blind. Clip-fit blinds such as Perfect Fit are mounted directly to the window drame itself. They are a good option for windows where the recess is not deep enough for standard blind, or where the window sills are used to store or display items.
