What size will the actual fabric be for a Roller Blind if my blind size is 182.0cm (Exact)?
Roller Blind Actual Fabric Size
You lose 2.8cm of fabric from the width size given, this is necessary to allow for the controls and brackets.
So in this case the fabric width would be 179.2cm but the whole blind width would still be 182.0cm as long as you order (Exact).
If you order your blind as (Recess) then we deduct 0.5cm for the recess clearance and 2.8cm from the fabric width to allow for controls and brackets, so the fabric width would be 178.2cm and the blind overall finished width would be 181.0cm.
If you need a certain fabric width you would need to add the 2.8cm to your overall blind size in this case 182.0cm would have to change to184.8cm (Exact) to give your required fabric width of 182cm.
But remember you must have sufficient space to fit the blind as you would have increased the width by 2.8cm.
This would be useful if you are fitting a Roller Blind on a backdoor keeping the fabric behind the door handle when the blind is drawn down but still giving you glass coverage.
