If you are buying a roller blind from us online you will be presented with three options once you have entered your measurements: recess size, exact blind size and fabric size.
Roller blinds are the only product with the fabric size option.
Fabric size is most commonly chosen when the customer knows the exact size of the fabric they need to cover a recess and are looking to fit the blind outside the recess.
It is very important to understand the difference between exact blind size and fabric size otherwise you may end up with a blind too big or too small for your window.
When we talk about width in terms of "fabric size" we are referring to the width of the fabric not the blind.
When you order “fabric size” the exact width of the blind is on average about 39mm wider than the fabric - this varies depending on the roller blind system chosen. This is the space taken up by the brackets and raising mechanism.
As the difference between fabric size and exact blind size is differs between the different roller blinds in our range, we recommend that you contact our office on 0161 494 9616 or at email@example.com if this measurement is critical to you.
