Shade Control is compatible with every shade that has a bead chain.
Because of the retrofit nature, it’s good to check if there is enough space to attach shade control and if the bead chain you have is compatible. Please follow the steps below to check:
Step 1: Check the dimensions of your bead chain
The bead chain should have a bead size diameter of 4.5mm and a spacing of 6mm or 12 mm between the beads. This is the most common size in Europe. Shade Control is currently only compatible with a bead chain of this size. If you have a different size, please contact us.
Step 2: Check if there is enough space to install Shade Control
Shade Control can be mounted on the backside and sideways.
Backside installation is necessary if the bead chain is within your window frame. If the bead chain is outside your window frame then install it sideways. This is important to have your bead chain as straight as possible connected to Shade Control. This makes sure that your bead chain is not twisted, which not only looks better but is also better fot the mechanism of the shade.
In most circumstances there is enough space. If you are not sure, you can measure the space around the beaded chain where Shade Control would be installed and compare it with the dimensions of Shade Control which is shown below.
