Instruction how to hang from the ceiling cornice
Mark the mounting location of the cornice on the ceiling. two sizes should be taken into account: the distance from the wall and its position relative to the center of the window. Distance from the curtains to the protruding parts of the window (the window sill or frame handles) adopted by at least 5 cm Subject to this distance from the wall to the curtains will be L + 5, where L -. The distance from the outermost part of the window to the wall. With multi-row curtains, this parameter defines the position closest to the window curtains.
To determine the location of the cornice of the window opening with respect to mark the center of the window and measure the distance from it equal to the left and right brackets to the placement (or until the end eaves frame, if it is mounted directly to the ceiling). It should be remembered that the brackets should be placed at a distance from the edges of the window openings (300-400 mm). This is to ensure that, when assembled curtains opening the window was fully open.
Attach brackets cornice or frame to the ceiling in the marked position and mark on them the place of drilling holes for mounting screws.
An electric drill with pobeditovym drill holes in the ceiling. The diameter and drilling depth must match the fixture, which is equipped with a cornice. As a rule, it screws with plastic plugs.
Hammer plugs into the holes. Install the brackets and attach with screws or a frame to the ceiling cornice. Depending on the product design in some cases it is necessary to mount bracket assembly with the guide frame, the other - one bracket, and only then attach it to the frame itself.
