Campbell & Heeps installers are all specially trained to ensure that all of our products are installed correctly, safely and cleanly.
Our installation teams will discuss with you any queries you may have regarding the installation process, before beginning work. We will guide you through how to best use your blinds or awnings once installed.
The utmost care will always be taken with your home or property, and our installers always strive to leave your space as clean as when they arrived, if not cleaner!
Inside Windows Recess fix:
Recess fix is the term used to describe the fitting of a blind within the window reveal or recess. This is measured from the inside of the window frame to the opposing side. Depending on the blind type chosen, visible gaps may occur down each side.
Inside Windows Face Fix:
Face fix is the term used to describe the fitting of a blind on the face or outside of the window frame. Measured from the outside of the architrave to the opposing side, if there are no architraves or window frames around the windows, the blind will be fitted to the face wall.
Outside Windows Face fix:
Outside face fix is when the blind is installed on the wall, generally, 180mm past the recess each side for standard sunblinds, but this can vary from product to product.
Box Frames are the frames that shutters are mounted within. They come with the shutters and provide a square frame for them to be attached to. This makes installing them much more comfortable and provides a higher quality finish.
The best way to protect a bay window is to select a product that comes straight down, as this eliminates any significant gaps on the sides that are created by blinds or awnings that sit out at an angle.
Butt and Through:
Butt and Through is a term used when installing blinds into an inside corner. One blind will run ‘through’ as far as it can go and then the other blind will ‘butt’ up to it as close as possible.
For roller blinds being fitted to an internal corner, it is better to roll the fabric from the front of the roller (over roll) rather than the back (standard roll), as this eliminates the gap that is created.
Pergola Inside refers to when blinds or awnings are being fitted to the inside of a pergola. This is normally done when you don’t want the blinds or awnings to be seen from the outside. Operation of the blinds is done from inside the pergola.
Pergola Outside refers to when blinds or awnings are fitted to the outside of a pergola, generally on posts or fascias. Operation of the blinds or awnings is performed from outside the pergola.
Folding Arm Face Fit:
Folding Arm Face Fit refers to folding arms being fitted directly onto a wall or structure. Face fixing is onto brick, concrete or timber.
Folding Arm Under Eave:
Folding Arm Under Eave fit refers to folding arms being installed underneath the eave. Brackets are installed inside the eave to the roof rafters, and then the folding arm brackets are bolted to these, providing superior strength.
Folding Arm Fascia Fit:
Folding Arm Fascia fit refers to the installation of folding arm awnings in front of the fascia and gutter. Fascia brackets run through the fascia and are fixed to the roof rafters. The folding arm awning brackets are then bolted to these to provide maximum strength.
We can also offer a removal and disposal service for your old blinds. This is done at a minimum fee to you and saves you the hassle of taking down and getting rid of old blinds.
