Roller Shades Guide
Cassette Limitations | Special Brackets
Tip-to-Tip Measure is the common measure type for most roller shades. Choosing this measure type will include the headrail "pegs" that mount the shade to the wall or frame.
Cloth Measure is uncommon and should only be used for Outside Frame applications. The headrail is wider than the cloth of the shade which causes the "pegs" to extend beyond the width of the shade material. This total distance is 1-3/8" wide, or a gap of 11/16" on each side of the shade material.
NOTE: For outside mount applications allow the blind to overlap 1-1/2" to 3" on the sides, top and bottom of the window. You must add the overlap to your measurement; Levolor does not add width or height for overlap on Outside Mounted shades.
Cordloop length is 3/4 the length of the shade, unless otherwise specified.
Scalloped hem adds approximately 4" to the length of the roller shade and does not roll up into the shade.

A brush-type vacuum attachment or feather duster should be used for cleaning. If your shade should become stained, you may clean it by dabbing the spot with a sponge dampened with lukewarm water. Avoid contact with window cleaning products as these may discolor your shade. Ultrasonic cleaning is not recommended or covered by our warranty.
Color Variation and Fabric Repeat Information
Color lot variations may occur due to the process of color application. For the best color match, order all shades for a room at the same time. Pattern availability and color lot match between orders cannot be assured. Any variation in color is in accordance with industry standards.
