In this guide we’ll be providing a step-by-step walk through for installing a VELUX blind.This guide will allow you to fit any VELUX blind which features their patented Pick&Click mounting system including their blackout, roman and roller blinds.
Check the Contents of Your VELUX Blind
Before you begin to fit your VELUX blinds, check the contents of the package. This can vary for each blind, but the paperwork included will confirm what should be there.
This is a good opportunity to ensure that you have the necessary tools to hand too. They will be outlined in the paperwork and will, in most circumstances, simply be a screwdriver.
Step 2: Fit the Bottom Mounts
Separate the two bottom mounts and fix them into place at the bottom corners of your window frame using the supplied screws. Ensure the mount sit levels with the bottom of the frame and is positioned as shown in the diagram below.
Step 3: Install the Side Rails
Slide the left and right hand side rail into the top of your VELUX blind as shown in the diagram below. The fabric of the blind should sit snuggly between the front and back of the side rail as shown.
Then ‘click’ the side rail into the bottom mount. You shouldn’t have to apply much pressure to secure it in place. If you struggle check the positioning of the bottom mounts to ensure they have been fitted correctly.
Step 4: Secure the Side Rails
Use the remaining six screws to secure both side rails into place as shown in the diagram below. You will find screw holes located on the rear of both side rails for guidance.
Once secured into place check the entire frame of the blind for gaps. The frame of your VELUX blind should be snug to the inner frame of your window with no gaps at the corners.
Step 5: Secure the Guide Strings
Unclip the guide strings (encased in circular red plastic) from the blind and roll one of the strings down, remove the red casing from the string and throw it away. Click the clip at the bottom of the string into the bottom of the side rails as shown in the diagram below. Then repeat this on the other side before removing the remaining red plastic casing on your VELUX blind.
