WARNING ON EXTENDED STORAGE OF BLNDS: At this time of year some customers are ordering blinds for installation in the New Year. We highly recommend that blinds are installed within two weeks of receipt to ensure that fabrics are not damaged due to extended periods of storage in packaging.
In the past we had reports of damage to blinds after being stored in packaging for too long in hot and humid summer conditions. Some fabrics were known to stick together and in some cases the blockout backing peeled off the fabric in parts. This occurred during very wet conditions when blinds were stored over a number of weeks in high heat and humidity; therefore it is important to stress the recommendation that blinds be installed as soon as possible to prevent any fabric damage or warping. Please keep this tip in mind when ordering blinds well ahead of installation dates.
