Recess (Inside Fit) Roller Blinds
First, determine if you have enough depth to fit the blind within the recess
65mm of unobstructed depth where the brackets are mounted at the top of the window is Sufficient for our Single Roller Blind (Over Rolled).
42mm of unobstructed depth (everywhere in the window) is Sufficient for our Single Roller Blind (Under Rolled).
90mm of unobstructed depth where the brackets are mounted at the top of the window is Sufficient for our Slimline Bracket Dual Roller Blinds
If you have enough depth in your recess then:
A. Measure the width in mm on the inside of the window frame from left side to right side in three places (Top, Centre, and Bottom) and use the smallest of the three measurements.
B. Measure the drop in mm from the top of the inside recess to the base of the inside sill in three places (Left, Centre, Right) and use the smallest of the three measurements.
Important DO NOT make any deductions or allowances to your Recess Fit measurements
Watch out for any obstructions within the recess such as window winders, knobs, handles, etc.
Please note, some window winders have the ability to be collapsed on themselves to create more space when not being used.
If you have an obstruction in the recess, but still have 65mm of depth where the brackets are mounted at the top of the window and are using a Single Roller Blind, simply order your blind as an over roll, the fabric will clear any obstruction easily as it will come to the front over the tube.
Alternatively, an under rolled single roller blind can be mounted with a minimum of 42mm of unobstructed recess depth, however with an under roll you need to be extra weary of obstructions as the fabric goes to the back of the tube and closer to the window.
For Recess Fit Slimline Bracket Double Roller Blinds, we only show one option on the ordering page for a recess fit, both blinds will be over rolled to clear any obstructions. As above, make sure you have the 90mm of depth / unobstructed space where the brackets and tubes are mounted at the top of your window. The vertical height of the brackets and two blinds stacked is around 140mm from the top of your window recess downwards.
If you do not have enough room for a recess fit, go for a face fix blind.
