Service or DIY?

Whether you want service (we do the check measure and the installation for you) or you’re a happy DIY type – you’re covered and in good hands. PVC blinds are easy-peasy to measure for and install (full instructions down the page); just choose the ‘DIY option’. And in terms of service, if you are in or near a main New Zealand centre we should be able to help; just choose the ‘service option’. All quotes, either way, start with getting an initial quote from your measurements; approximate or exact, service or DIY.

Considerations.

Putting it straight out there; I’m not a super fan of PVC blinds personally. Sure, they are super robust when made from high-grade plastics however few people appreciate that they are considerably heavier than their wooden venetian counterparts. Another overlooked aspect of PVC blinds is, because they are noticeably heavier, they have more ‘ladders’ to support the blades and their extra weight. This means more ‘stringy’ bits in your view. Don’t let me deter you necessarily; read the next section to see where PVC blinds excel. And don’t feel stuck thinking you need all PVC blinds or all wooden venetians though your home; they look pretty close to one another so it’s fine to mix and match as the specific environment demands.

Robust, weatherproof.

If the bathroom at your place gets hot and steamy maybe PVC blinds are the best choice. Or the kids splash up a storm doing dishes perhaps a PVC blind is best here too? You can get PVC blinds we wet as you like, wipe them down, and most things you splatter on them will wipe straight off. Care should be taken with any blind product however these are pretty darn tough and sturdy. So in summary, if you’re expecting rain indoors, or a rugby match played in the lounge, PVC blinds may well be the winning blind of choice.

PVC limitations.

Leading on from the ‘considerations’ section above (explaining how PVC blinds are heavier than any other venetian type) – this also means that the maximum width of PVC blinds is less, comparatively. This could mean separate blinds are needed across bigger spans with larger drops. The maximum width of our PVC blinds is 2400mm at a max drop of 2000. The max drop achievable is 2600 at a width of 1600. All the PVC blinds here are made using high-grade PVC that doesn’t warp or bow and do outlast a great deal of lesser offerings available. These PVC blinds are made by Trudy and the team with more than 20 years experience in predominantly making venetians. There are no short-cuts taken manufacturing these. Truly superior parts, materials and workmanship are used when compared to most.

Light control.

Like all venetians, PVC blinds make controlling the direction and intensity of light as easy as adjusting the tilt cords. You control your privacy the same way; just tweak that tilt cord how you like and set the feel of any room. You’re also managing room temperature this way on those hot summer days. You create the right indoor environment for your needs, easily.

2-3 week lead time.

Allow 10–15 working days to manufacture and freight your new PVC blinds. If we’re professionally installing for you perhaps allow a few more days just to schedule you in with the installer. PVC blinds are made in Auckland using high-grade polymers only (no cheap crap) and overseen by Trudy with over 20 years of experience in manufacturing PVC blinds.

Our PVC blinds are either made in NZ or China depending on your needs.

Measuring made easy.

Follow the below measuring steps and it couldn’t be easier to get perfect fitting PVC blinds every time. Repeat the mantra; Measure the width 3 times; measure the drop 3 times. By doing this you’re allowing for any irregularities in the window frame and you’re rechecking what you’re reading off the measuring tape and writing down. It takes the ‘measure twice, cut once’ principle to a whole new level. For the most part PVC blinds go ‘inside the reveal’ – the following steps outline this approach, however ‘outside the reveal’ instructions are at the bottom of this section as a pdf as well.

Measure in 3 steps

1. Measure width 3 times.

With that trusty tape measure of yours in hand, lets measure the width 3 times at 3 different heights. Hold it level as you measure, for best accuracy, and measure ‘wood to wood’-‘inside the reveal’. At three different heights; at the top, somewhere in the middle, and near the bottom. Take the smallest reading; that’s the one to use. Supply measurements in millimetres only. Easy? Moving on…

2. Measure drop 3 times.

Now for the drop, and much like above we’re going to measure the height at three different points across the width. Left, middle, and right. Wood to wood, inside edge to inside edge. Hold that tape measure perpendicular for best accuracy and again take the lowest measurement after ensuring you are reading the numbers off the tape measure properly. The lowest measurement is taken in this case too so your PVC blind bottom-rail sits neatly above the highest point of your window sill without hitting it.

3. Supply measurements.

Hit ‘Get A Quote’ and send in your new PVC blind measurements. Millimetres always for best accuracy; width X drop. If you need the service option (you’re getting us to check measure and do the installation) the measurements don’t have to be super exact however it’s good to be fairly accurate so the quote is good to go. If you’re a DIY type choosing the DIY option your measurements will need to be exact as per above instructions before confirming your order, to avoid unnecessary tears and sleepless nights.

Installation made easy.

It’s easy to install when you know how – just follow along below to make your installation a breeze. For the most part PVC blinds will be going ‘inside the reveal’ so the following instructions here focus on that. If you need the ‘outside the reveal’ instructions, these are available as a downloadable pdf at the end of this section. Crack those knuckles and let’s get to it…

1. Warm into it.

Gather the bits and pieces you’ll need for a successful installation: measuring tape, pencil, craft knife, screwdriver, supplied screws, and to really get up into the zone you may need a step ladder. Know what you’re doing with power tools? You may want to upgrade the screwdriver for a power drill with the appropriate driver bit. You may even want to pre-drill your screw holes with a 2mm drill bit. This makes the screws go in easier. Pre-installation stretches are recommended to really go the distance without fatigue. Now carefully unpack your PVC blinds to behold their glorious goodness.

2. Brackets.

Ok, this next step needs some thought to achieve the best results – ‘how much depth will the PVC blind headrail take up, what depth of window reveal do I have to work with, what obstructions if any are present (handles, stays, latches or catches), and how deep do I want to blind set back, if at all, are all worthy questions to ask oneself. Setting the PVC blind about 10mm back from the architrave always looks pretty good. To achieve that, bearing in mind the fascia goes in front of the brackets, you may want to measure back about 15mm from the architrave to the front face of the bracket. Some shallower reveals may just mean you don’t set the PVC blind back at all. Hold the bracket in the desired position and mark it with a pencil. Mark where the 2 screws per bracket will go. You can put the screws up through the top of the bracket or through the side of the bracket; it doesn’t really matter.

Each end of a PVC blind needs an end bracket; there’s a left and a right and they’ll be marked accordingly (L & R). For PVC blinds 1.7m and over there will be intermediary bracket supplied with that specific blind. When marking these middle brackets; the back of an intermediary bracket should line up with the back of the end brackets.

This is where the measuring tape is pretty useful. Again, mark your holes for fitting the screws and securing the brackets.

TIP 1: Think about where you’re going to place intermediary brackets in relation to PVC blind ‘ladders’. That’s those dangly string bits holding the blind together. This can be done by lying the PVC blind down and measuring the best locations for any intermediary brackets.

3. Blinds.

Well done, the brackets are secure and it’s time to fit your new PVC blinds. The end brackets have a hinge gate front to them. Leave one secured closed and have one wide open. Slide one end of the PVC blind headrail into the closed end bracket, lift the headrail high enough so the headrail will sit on the intermediary bracket (if there is one) and then slide the other end of the headrail into the open end bracket. Once the PVC blind is in, secure that bracket gate and it's ready to lower and operate. Just before sitting back and admiring your handiwork, you still have to put the fascia on the blind. Hold the fascia up level, hold centrally and fix to the headrail with the fixings supplied on the fascia.

I was referred to Ryan from Blinds Online by a satisfied customer of his. I left my message and checked him out online. Amazingly quite a few people I knew had used his service so I approached them all and asked for feedback. All his customers were effusive in their praise of his service and professionalism. Intrigued I made my appointment. Indeed Ryan was quietly competent getting quickly onto the job in hand. A day after we placed our order we discovered a glazing mistake with two new windows – one in the bathroom and one in the toilet left us somewhat exposed, contrary to belief. Without hesitation Ryan returned to the property knowing that he now had a brief which required quick supply. Before he arrived he had enquired and established that those two windows could have window coverings within a week. The order went in and true to promise one week to the day he not only had our bathroom and toilet windows but the house lot delivered and fitted. Without wanting to set him up for the future, to have a significant number of blinds delivered and fitted two weeks ahead of time and without fuss or hiccup seemed a somewhat extraordinary experience in this day and age of over promise and under delivery. We’re extremely happy with the referral we got and hope others can benefit from this exceptional service. I will not be hesitating to refer him to anyone in the future.

FAQS

Q.

What's more economical – Woodens or PVC blinds?

A.

PVC blinds are typically more economical than well made wooden venetians, generally speaking, across the industry. However our 50mm wooden venetians are super economical for the level of quality you get. So that said, our PVC blinds and our 50mm basswood venetians are pretty much on par with each other price wise. If either product would suit you I'd suggest getting a quote for both.

In saying that, try not to buy on price alone; get the blinds that suit you and the purpose they are for. You have them for years ahead so best you like how they look and operate. I've worked hard to get these two products similarly priced, without compromise, so people don't just go with the cheaper option, overlooking some key considerations; PVC blinds are heavy to lift and use; this can lead to wear and tear on the product as well as the joy derived in their use day after day.

A.

All the brackets you require are supplied with your new PVC blinds. You'll most often find them attached to the PVC blind headrail. All PVC blinds have both a lefthand end bracket and a righthand end bracket. They are stamped (L) and (R). Both end brackets have a hinge gate which faces into the room with the hinge at the top.

PVC blinds 1700mm wide and wider will come supplied with an intermediary bracket. This provides extra support for those wider PVC blinds. You will find the intermediary bracket taped to the headrail of any PVC blinds that require one. For full installation instructions, please see the 'INSTALLING' section further up this page.

A.

This is standard across all makes, brands and types of venetian blinds without exception. When the PVC blind blades are tilted closed, the blades don't close as tightly the further down the venetian you go. While the tilt mechanism, located in the headrail, is good at closing the blades closest to the headrail; the further down a PVC blind you go the bigger the gap between closed blades will be. This isn't noticeable in general however is more so on full drop PVC blinds because of their length (drop) but also because of the angle these bigger blinds are often viewed at; standing in front of the blind looking down. The gaps can't be avoided; its physics; you have distance, weight and ladder stretch preventing the tilt mechanisms from ever closing the bottom blades as tightly as the top ones. This doesn't jeopardise your privacy however the light leaks will be greater near the bottom of full drop PVC blinds. This phenomenon is described here to set the right expectations regarding PVC blind products. Again, this is standard across all makes, brands and types of venetian blinds.

A.

There are no price differences between the different PVC blind colours. Whether you choose Alabaster, Canvas, Cedar Light, Stone or White, they are all priced the same.

A.

Our PVC blinds come in one slat size only. 50mm.

A.

The PVC blind headrail and attached fascia take up approximately 70mm of reveal depth. So to comfortably house a PVC blind inside the reveal without protruding past the architrave face you'll need 70mm minimum. More reveal depth than 70mm is fine and just means you can choose the depth at which you set your PVC blinds. If you have ample depth I feel setting them 5-10mm back from the face of the architrave looks good. Keep in mind what handles, hinges, or latches you may have on your windows or doors and that they may take up available reveal depth. You'll need at least 70mm clear reveal depth to comfortably house the PVC blinds without them protruding past the architrave face. Sometimes you are stuck with shallower reveals however please know that the PVC blind will protrude into the room to some extent. Blinds that fit well in shallower reveals are either 25mm aluminium venetian blinds or honeycomb thermal blinds.

A.

The narrowest reveal width we can make a PVC blind for is 220mm wide. From 220mm up to 309mm there is only enough physical room in the headrail for the tilt control cords only; not the cords that lift and raise the blind. It's important to know that PVC blinds from 220-309mm wide will only be supplied with tilt cords, and that these are located in the middle of the PVC blind. At 310mm and wider both tilt and lift control cords are present and are located at either the L or the R, as you specify.

A.

The 'stack height' of a venetian blind refers to the height of the blind when it is fully raised. How much height it takes up at the top of the window reveal when raised. This measurement includes the head-rail, blind slats, and the bottom rail. For your reference, approximate 'stack heights' for our PVC Blinds are as follows: A PVC blind with a drop of 600mm, has a stack height of 112mm, 800mm drop has a stack of 133mm, 1000mm = 149mm, 1200mm = 165mm, 1400mm = 181mm, 1600mm = 197mm, 1800mm = 213mm, 2000mm = 229mm, 2200mm = 245mm, 2400mm = 261mm, and a 2600mm wooden blind drop has a stack of 277mm. Please extrapolate for drops in-between these values.
