Measuring Tips

PRECISION PAYS!

Because our products are custom fabricated according to your order, precise measurements are required to insure that you get the correct sizes and prices. The dimensions you give on the order form for any window covering must be exact for it to properly fit the intended window opening. The fabricator will not be held accountable for incorrect measurements! Always use a steel tape measure, preferably 3/4" to 1" wide.

INSIDE MOUNT
1. Measure the width inside the window opening at the top, middle and bottom.
2. Measure the height inside the window opening at left, right and center.
3. Always round down to the nearest 1/8".
4. Measure window on the diagonal. If the two diagonal dimensions are not exactly the same, it may be more appropriate to specify an outside mount shade for optimal light control and privacy.
5. Order the narrowest width measurement and the shortest height measurement.
6. Be sure the window opening is deep enough to install the mounting bracket.
OUTSIDE MOUNT
1. Measure the desired width and height. To minimize light leakage, the shade should overlap the window opening at least 2" on each side and at the bottom.
2. When measuring the height, take into account the requirements for mounting the bracket attachment.
3. Factory deductions will vary based on product and mounting selection. Please refer to individual product specifications or contact your Fabricator for more information.
