How do I remove my old slats or vanes to measure

Removing a slat or vane from your existing vertical blind without breaking the stem.

  1. First, get a flat thin object (credit card, etc.)
  2. Next, slide the thin flat object up the vane on the hook side of the vane holder.
  3. Then, slide the vane and thin flat object down and out of the vane holder.

TIP:  If the process is difficult, verify that the vane is not sliding back onto the hook.

Vertical Blind Cleaning Tips

Fabric Vanes:

  • Periodic feather dusting or vacuuming will keep the fabric fresh.
  • Spot clean any stains by applying a mild soap and water solution with a sponge or cloth.
  • Check color fastness first by cleaning an inconspicuous area of the vane.
  • DO NOT machine wash or dry clean.

Vinyl Vanes:

  • Apply a mild soap and cold or warm water solution with a soft cloth or sponge.
  • DO NOT use abrasive or strong cleansers as they may scratch vane’s surface.
  • Dry with a cloth towel to avoid water marks.
What does “Light Filtering” meaning?

Light Filtering: Light is filtered to varying degrees depending on fabric style and color; silhouettes of objects and people are visible through the slats.

What does “Openness” mean?

Openness: The amount of UV ray blockage is the inverse of a fabric’s openness factor (i.e., a fabric with 5% openness blocks 95% of UV rays).

What does “Room Darkening” mean?

Room Darkening: Light is substantially block; vague shadows  of objects or people may be visible; maximum room darkening is achieved with darker colors.

What if I don’t need to add a fraction?

If you have no fraction to add, chose: “None” in the drop down menu.

What is a fraction?

When measuring your vertical slat, it may not be a whole number. You’ll need to add the corresponding fraction:

1/8” (i.e 1/8=.125, 1/4=.25, 3/8=.375, 1/2=.5, 5/8=.625, 3/4=.75, 7/8=.875)

If you don’t have a fraction to add, chose: “None”
