      Other Important notes regarding fabrics and components:

      We advise some light filter fabrics fray regardless of the way in which they are cut. Blinds Downunder does not guarantee light filter fabric against fraying.

      Blinds Downunder advises some fabrics may experience Bagging or ‘V’ing on Larger blinds, this may occur on Blockout, Light Filtering and screen Blinds and could show fabric bagging or wavering. The width of the blind as well as the weight of the fabric contribute to this effect. Screen/Roller blinds wider than 2500mm and/or longer than 3000mm are more likely to bag. To reduce this effect, consider splitting the blind into several blinds. Soft backed fabrics are more likely to bag.

      Blinds Downunder advises small blinds occasionally track and do not roll up straight. Curling of fabric is more likely on smaller blinds also.

      Blinds Downunder recommends Mechanical Parts are treated softly to prolong their lifespan.

       Care and Maintenance of Blind Fabrics

      Blinds Downunder recommends general maintenance on all their blinds. Surface dust should be removed with a duster or soft cloth. Fabric may be wiped with a damp sponge and dried with a clean cloth. Never use abrasive products or solvents / industrial based cleaners. Do not roll up fabric while fabric is still damp. Always test in a non-visible sample area first and let dry to avoid any possible damage to further blinds, should there be an adverse effect. These are all recommendations from our fabric manufacture and is in accordance with their guidelines.
