For increased light control and privacy

Find Width:

Measure to the nearest 1⁄8 in. between outermost points where shade is to be placed. Measurement should overlap each side of window frame by at least 1 1⁄2 in.

Find Height:

Measure to the nearest 1⁄8 in. from where top of shade will be located to top of sill, or measure to point of shade reach if no sill.


NOTE: Take all measurements to the nearest 1/8 in. DO NOT take any deductions. The factory will make the necessary adjustments to help ensure your shadings operate smoothly.
