The blind is installed to the inside of a window casing, to the glass stops of a tilt and turn window, or between a window trim. The blind is almost flush or recess to the window – a minimum depth of ½ inch is required for this installation. This installation is suitable for tilt and turn windows, sliding windows, casement windows, double/single hung window and folding doors.
The blind is installed to the outside of the unit and requires brackets for the installment. The unit protrudes out about 1½ inches. This installation is used for French doors, windows with not the required depth available or if a surface mount is desired. Surface mount is also required if your window has true divided grids which prevents from an inside mount installation.
Bottom up Top down blinds can be operated in either direction top or down and can be moved to any position of the window/door. The blind is installed with small mounting parts to each corner of the window permanent or non-permanent – there are no strings running across your glass. No pull strings are needed to operate the blinds which improves child safety tremendously.
Drill free installation is required when a standard permanent installation voids the warranty of the window/door manufacturer or you prefer a drill free installation. We offer drill free installation with clips or with a glue plate/glue strip.
Permanent installation requires that the mounting parts get installed via small screws to the window trim, the window itself or the door. Permanent inside mount installation is the most common way to install bottom up top down blinds.
