How to measure a window width and height:

 

Written Instructions:

 

Carefully measure width “A” at 2 points. This will identify the recess and window shape e.g. Square / Rectangular or Tapered. Then carefully measure the Recess Drop “B” which is also the Blind Drop. If INSIDE recess is selected Solar Solve will deduct 6mm from the width provided, to obtain the Blind Width and ensure the blind/screen will fit perfectly inside the recess.

Decide where the blind/screen is to be installed and carefully measure width “W” at 2 points. This will identify the recess and window shape e.g. Square / Rectangular or Tapered. Then carefully measure the Drop “D”. Give the dimension “W” as the OUTSIDE Recess WIDTH dimension (PW or CW) and the dimension “D” as the DROP RD. If OUTSIDE recess is selected no deductions to the width will be made.

 

NOTE: Please take into account any obstructions such as wiper motor units, air vents and other instruments which may be fixed on or near the window, as these may interfere with the operation of the screen. Also take in to account that the screens/blind size will need to be altered when installed together in corners.

Trapezium/Rhomboid/Parallelogram Shaped windows:

Where space at the top of the window is limited, an area of glass A would not be covered by the film/fabric.

Where the space at the top allows the roller/cassette to be extended the extra width of film/fabric allows all of the glass to be covered.
