How to Measure for Conservatory Blinds - Perfect Fit and EcoFit

Measuring for Perfect Fit or EcoFit is quick and simple. To take your measurements you'll need a metal tape measure, pencil, piece of paper and a cup of tea (optional).

How To Measure

You will need:

  • A tape measure outline

  • An outline of a pencil

  • An outline of a notepad


Perfect Fit Blinds

Before you begin: Start by checking that Perfect Fits are compatible with your window. Perfect Fit blinds are designed to fit UPVC windows, so wooden window frames are not compatible. The blind's frame requires a 25mm clearance around the frame, so check there are no window handles or vents 25mm from the pane. The brackets require a minimum 10mm beading depth to secure into. To check for this, slide a sharp knife in between the glass and rubber beading, and measure the depth you can insert the knife. If it is more than 10mm, then the brackets are able to work on your window. Finally, to install correctly, your window frame needs to have either a curved or diagonally inclined frame. Perfect Fit blinds do not suit windows with square frames. (For a more detailed explanation, see our blog How to Measure for Perfect Fit Blinds).

Step 1: Measure across the width of your window, at the bottom of the glass pane. Exclude any visible rubber beading at the edges - you are just measuring the visible glass. Next, measure across the central width, and finally the width at the top of your window glass. Circle the smallest measurement - this is the width measurement you'll use to order.

Step 2: The length from top to bottom is known as the 'drop'. Measure the drop of the visible glass, again excluding any visible rubber beading. Measure across the left-hand-side, down the centre and the right-hand-side. As with the width, circle the smallest drop measurement. This is the measurement you'll use when ordering.

Step 3: Measure the depth of your frame. To do this, place a credit card over a corner of the frame, then measure from the glass to the credit card. This is your depth measure.

Step 4: Enter these measurements into the website when ordering.
