When we fit blinds to a set of sliding doors, we often find that the best solution is to fit the blind that goes in front of the non-moving part of the door slightly away from the glass, using a bracket to hold the fabric out in front. This is so there is enough space between the blind and the door to allow the other, moving, part of the door to slide behind it.

This means that the blind that stands out slightly has to be free-hanging, which would normally be complicated by having cords or chains (which are not practical or allowable under child safety laws) so we used the child-safe SmartCord® system to ensure easy operation while still having no dangerous looped cords. Because we are able to recess fit our blinds into the actual frame of the moving part of the door, it’s able to easily move behind the blind without getting in the way.
