How to Measure for Window Roller Shades
Here is an easy to follow guide to measuring for your custom MCD RV window roller shades.
- Width — Measure the INSIDE width of the valance as close to the top as possible. Deduct a minimum of .5 inches total to provide clearance space for installation. (For a shade that is NOT mounted in a valance, provide the exact width of shade assembly you desire.)
- Upper Set Limit — Measure from the INSIDE top of the valance, or mounting position, to the upper point, where you want the bottom of the shade to stop when it is raised. This upper set limit will be pre-set.
*Minimum for a Duo Roller Shade is 5 inches and a Solo Shade is 3.5 inches*
- Drop Length — Measure from the INSIDE top of the valance, or mounting position, to the bottom of the window frame.
NOTE: You will need at least two (2) inches of extra space for the shade to roll freely inside a valance. Final product tolerance for shade width is +/- .25 inch per shade. All MCD Roller Shades are custom-made and are not returnable.
