INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

READ STEPS 1-10 BEFORE STARTING

 

          1.      TEAR (do not cut) the paper at each end to expose the roll.

·        IMPORTANT! Do not remove the entire paper wrap from the shade until fully mounted in the brackets.

          2.      Mounting brackets are universal for all mounting angles.

·         The plastic bracket insert must be placed with the open end upward (or shade will fall out of bracket)

         3.      Any hard surface such as steel will require pre-drilling.

         4.      Center the shade in the window, then mark and install the first bracket.

         5.      The location for mounting brackets should be exactly where the ordered measurement where taken. If unsure install the first bracket.

·        Put shade in place and hold the second bracket into shade, mark and install.

·        Be careful not to let the shade fall. The tube will bend, and the material can be damaged. THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY

         6.      Always use a carpenter’s level to make sure the shade is level.

·        Do not assume window framing is level.

·        Unlevel shades can telescope and could damage the material.

·        THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY

         7.      Never bend the brackets as an adjustment.    

         8.      Be sure the shade is securely installed into the brackets and will not fall out.

         9.      Once installed, all shades should be able to move side-to-side 1/16” – 1/8”.

        10.   Remove (do not cut) the paper to check for proper operation and tracking.  

    

IMPORTANT

       1.      After paper is removed, 

       2.      do not handle Mylar film shades without gloves or a soft cloth covering your hands.

        Brown jersey gloves work well when hanging Mylar shades.

       3.      To check for proper tracking or possible telescoping,

·        Start by lowering the shade approximately 1/3 of the way down and then back up.

·        Repeat by pulling 2/3’s of the way down and then back up. 

       4.      Carefully watch that the material does not roll into the bracket.

       5.      CAUTION:  Shades must be level.

             ·        If the material is damaged by the brackets – it is NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY (see “tracking adjustments” below) 

    

        Universal bracket mounting brackets

·        The metal parts are the same for both ends.

·        With the fabric in the rolled-up position, the chain bead connector should be at the top and to the rear. The wide side of the chain sprocket cap will be at the top and the open end towards the bottom. 


TROUBLE SHOOTING AND MAKING ADJUSTMENTS

     SHADE IS TOO NARROW (INJAMB MOUNT)

           1.      The round steel pin in the end plug is designed to be pulled out up to 1/8” using pliers.

           2.      FABER end caps are also designed for adjustment on the job. A notch is provided on both ends to insert a flat screwdriver and pry out       1/8”. If ends are pried out, secure in place by indenting

           3.      For in jamb installation, the brackets can be moved closer together with the use of a wood shim, penny, or washer behind the brackets.

           4.      Relocate the universal brackets and mounting locations from in jamb, to outside, wall or ceiling mount.

 

         SHADE IS TOO WIDE (INJAMB MOUNT)

            1.      The steel tube should be exposed about 1/8” – Fabric should be narrower than the tube.

·        Tube may be filed or trimmed down to the proper width.

·        OPERATING A SHADE THAT IS TOO TIGHT CAN RESULT IN BENDING THE TUBE DURING OPERATION.

             2.      Reposition the brackets to a ceiling or outside mount. DO NOT FILE THE PINS.

             3.      To return a shade to the manufacturer for cut down,

·        A RETURN AUTHORIZATION NUMBER must be assigned before the shade will be accepted back.

·         If the cut down is not the fault of the manufacturer, a service charge will be added (see TO RETURN A SHADE).

         SHADE DOES NOT TRACK STRAIGHT – “TELESCOPE”

           1.      Always use a carpenter’s bubble level to make sure the shade is level. 

·        It does not necessarily have to be eye level or parallel with the window frame.

           2.      If the tube is level, pull down shade or unroll material until the metal tube is exposed. 

·        Stack or shim several pieces of tape (not a thin Scotch tape) 3” – 4” along the tube on the end opposite the direction that the material is   tracking towards.

            3.      Repeat or thicken shims if necessary.

            4.      When using Sheer Weave material, there may be existing shims.  You may want to remove them and start over.
