RAIL – WIRE MOUNTED ON THE FRAME

FRAME MOUNTED RAIL

An alternative to the rails mounted on the wall are the handles attached to the wooden window frame, although the width of the doorframe may make it difficult to open the curtains. We mark the place of fixing the brackets, we drill holes and screw the handles.

FRAME MOUNTING – We mark the places where the handles are fastened. We make the hole with an awl or - with longer screws - an electric drill, using a wood drill. We screw in the screws that hold the handles.

FRAME EXTENSION – If the curtains will slide sideways after that, to let as much light as possible into the room, you can lengthen the doorframe with a pair of short wooden slats attached to the wall. Attach the handles to the slats, as stated above.

TROLLEYS AND RESTRAINTS
If the rail is already properly mounted and attached to the holders, must be calculated, how many trolleys will be needed, j Then slide them into the rail track and secure the ends with a suitable stop or decorative ending, i When hanging curtains, we can easily add or remove the appropriate number of trolleys ourselves after removing such a stop or end.

FIXING THE WIRE TO THE FRAME

Light transparent and mesh curtains can be hung in the window or door opening on a spring wire covered with plastic. The wire is attached to the screws with an eyelet, which can be screwed into the side or face of the door frame. First, mark the places for the screws and make the appropriate holes with an awl for drilling holes. Use pliers to cut the wire to the desired length.

1 MANUFACTURE OF GUIDE HOLES
Make small holes with an awl in the places marked with a pencil on the frame on both sides of the window, which will be used to tighten the threaded screws.

2 FASTENING THE SCREWS
We screw the screws by hand like this, so that their eyes are just above the surface of the door frame. We measure the distance between the eyelets and cut the wire accordingly, counting down the length of the hooks.

3 ATTACHING THE WIRE TO THE HOOKS
We attach the hooks to both ends of the wire. One of the hooks is attached to the eyelet in the door frame. We tighten the wire and hook the second hook to the eyelet on the other side of the window.

INSTALLING A ROOF BOARD

First we mark the location of the cornice board, positioning it parallel to the window or ceiling. If the window and ceiling are not parallel, we use a spirit level. We drill holes with an electric concrete drill. We fix the board to the wall above the window with the use of holders screwed with screws in expansion bolts.

1 MARKING AND DRILLING HOLES
Place the cornice board centrally over the opening and - using a spirit level - mark the points for drilling holes for fixing the board on the wall with a pencil. We remove the board, we drill holes and insert wall plugs into them.

2 ATTACHING THE HANDLES
We put the board to the wall in the marked place. We screw the handles to the wall plugs. We will probably need help with the large cornice.
