Timeless, modern, functional, all these terms perfectly describe a horizontal venetian blind in aluminium. The horizontal lines create a tautness that comes into its own in almost every interior. Incidentally, by tilting the slats, you can determine the incidence of light and/or view from the outside.
This type of blind consists of a steel upper part and aluminium slats. These durable materials ensure a product with a long lifespan. The slats are available in 25 and 50 mm and by cleverly orienting them, you can determine the view from the outside. When the blinds are closed, you can even darken the room.
25 mm slats are the most popular and are particularly suitable for small to medium-sized windows. This is where they come into their own most and provide an elegant result.
50 mm slats provide the greatest view to the outside. However, this does not come into its own with small windows. That is why 50 mm slats are recommended for medium to large windows.
The window decoration is placed between the window frame or the walls.
Measure the width in different places each time and then take the smallest size.
Finished width = smallest measured width - 1cm
Next, also measure the height in different places and also take the smallest size here.
Finished height = smallest measured height - 1 cm (for 25mm slats)
Finished height = smallest measured height - 2 cm (for 50mm slats)
The window decoration is placed on the window frame or the wall. In this case, you can choose the desired overlap.
To do so, measure the width of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished width = measured width + desired overlap
You can also choose the desired overlap in height.
To do so, measure the height of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished height = measured height + desired overlap
It was decided at European level that interior blinds and window decoration should meet new requirements in terms of Child Safety. These new requirements relate to the risk that cord and/or chain loops can pose to young children. (European Standards: EN 13120, EN 16433 and EN 16434)
The general rule is that the controls must always be at least 150 cm above the ground. In the ordering process you should always specify the installation height. Based on this, we will provide the chain or cord control with the correct length. Each product is also supplied with a safety device with which you must tension the chain or cord (laterally). This should ensure that young children cannot stick their heads through the cord or chain loop and thus avoid the risk of strangulation.
We are constantly working on our customer experience and the perception of our products. Soon we will place short instructional videos online in which the mounting will be shown step by step. In the meantime, you can use the installation instructions below. These explain step by step which things you need to pay attention to during the installation and operation of your horizontal blind.
If you have any questions or encounter problems during the mounting of your horizontal blind you can contact us online or contact the Diaz distributor where you picked up the product.
