Blockout – Our blockout ranges consist of either lined or thicker material. The products that are “lined” means that there is a thick material stuck to the back of a designer material that is normally more transparent without the lining. We also have a PVC blockout range and a 100% Polyester blockout range that uses the material only to provide coverage. These ranges are usually in plain colors without images and patterns on it.
Semi-Blockout – The Semi-Blockout ranges are made of a material that does not allow you to see through but there is some degree of light that does come through the blind. This material is not ideal for a bedroom if you want to sleep during the day.
Translucent – Translucent blinds are completely see-through. The Premier weave and Sheer weave are perforated ranges that allow you to see through during the day and during the evening you will be able to see in from the outside. The translucent ranges offer a degree of UV protection and will help with glare from the sun. But it is not recommended for private areas like your bathroom and bedroom.
Semi-Translucent – The Semi-translucent range consists of a mixture between translucent and semi-blockout material. Where you will be able to see through parts of the blind and not on others. This material usually has some sort of image or pattern on it.
Weave and Ultimate Roller blinds are not recommended for privacy locations like bedrooms as perforation allows some inward visibility at night.

How to Measure your Blinds
How to measure Inside (Recess) blinds:
- Ensure that the recess your blinds is going into is not obstructed in any way so the blind can hang freely when fully extended. Look out for protruding window handles and tiles!
- Verify you have 70mm inside top wall recess available for the blind head rail to be mounted onto – refer to illustration to the left.
- Measure at various places (J,K,L) as illustrated and input the shortest width dimension.
- Measure at various places (G,H,I) as illustrated and input the longestshortest drop dimension.
- Verify you have 70mm inside top wall recess available for blind head rail to be mounted onto. ( Z )
Note: We will make your blind to fit into the recess perfectly. Do not make any deductions to the measurements as our factory will make the allowances required for recessed blinds.
How to Measure your Blinds
How to measure Outside (Facefix) blinds:
- Decide how much you want to overlap the blind on all sides - we recommend this should be at least 50mm - 100mm each side in most instances.
- Carefully measure the width of D, E and F (see the diagram) and the drop from A, B and C.
Types of Blinds
Blinds come in two different kinds, which will suit different needs. Do you want the blind to fit inside the window (Recess) or outside (Facefix)?
Outside (Facefix) blinds are easier to install, ideal if you want to hide features around the window and does not require exact measuring.
Inside (Recess) blinds provides a neat appearance, but requires exact measuring and a top recess large enough to accommodate the size of the head rail.
