Balance day and night blind chain operated

For windows where day and night blinds are needed but use is infrequent, we also offer manually operated day and night blinds. So you can still enjoy the same stylish day and night blinds from Smartblinds for these windows, but with a chain-operated system instead of a motor with cord.

Our products are made to measure. Enter the desired width and height of your blind and we will take care of the rest. You don't have to take into account any margins, we will calculate them ourselves. Please note! Before you start measuring, pay attention to any obstacles such as door and/or window fittings that protrude, heating pipes or inward-turning doors and windows.

Want to know how to measure? Check out our measuring instructions!

  1. Option A: Determine dimensions for mounting inside the recess

    Measure the width at the top of the window recess and measure the height at the middle of the window recess. Please note! We supply the blind with a 3 mm reduction on both sides. So don't do any reductions yourself! Please also note a system height of 100 mm for possible obstacles such as doors and windows turning inwards.

  2. Please note that the width size given is the size of the system. The fabric is always narrower than the system, see this article for more information.

  3. Option B: Determine dimensions for mounting outside the recess

    Measure the width and height of the window recess, with a small overlap. We recommend an overlap of 5 cm on both sides. Add a total of 10 cm to the width measurement. To determine the height, add 10 cm (height of system) to the height of your window recess. Do you want your blind to continue downwards? Then decide how many extra centimetres you want in height.

You can choose to hang your blind inside the recess or outside the recess:

  1. Inside the recess
    If you hang the roller blind inside the recess, it is mounted between the walls of your window. With this choice, we therefore supply your blind with a 3 mm reduction on both sides.
  2. Outside the recess
    If you hang the blind outside the recess, it is mounted on the wall and hangs over the window with overlap on both sides.

By choosing a motor side, you determine on which side you want to operate and charge your Smartblinds. If you choose the left side, the motor, pull-down controller and charging port are located on the left side of the product. Would you like this to be on the right-hand side? Then choose right.

Here you can fill in a reference for your assembled blind. That way you will soon know exactly which product is for which window in your house!

When you are looking for window coverings, it is important to determine beforehand what transparency you want in certain rooms. In bedrooms, for example, more blackout is usual than in the living room. Smartblinds fabrics can be divided into three different transparencies:


Opacity: none - Light from outside is completely blocked and has no possibility to illuminate rooms.

Light filtering

Opacity: limited - Light from outside is obstructed, but not completely blocked.


Opacity: full - Light from outside finds its way in, but the fabric offers the desired privacy.

Your blinds should, of course, match your interior. The colour and look of fabrics and materials can sometimes differ from reality from a screen or due to differences in light transmission. We therefore always recommend requesting free fabric samples in advance, so you can assess the fabric (colour) in real life!

Our systems are available in two sizes, small and large. The small system is suitable for small to medium-sized day and night blinds. For large sized blinds, only a large system is possible. Our advice is to start by putting together the day and night blind for your largest window in the house. If it turns out that you can only choose a large system for this blind, we recommend doing the same for the rest of your Smartblinds. This way you avoid having multiple Smartblinds in your home with different systems. Is your largest product also suitable for a small system? Then choose the system size that you prefer.

Below you will find the system height of the various systems, so that you can take this into account when ordering. Are you mounting your product in the window, but do you have a window that opens inwards? Then you can use this to check whether you have enough room for this.

For the roller system of your blind, Smartblinds offers you a choice of two different types:





The pictures you see above are of our motorised systems. The systems of our chain-operated products are the same but have different system dimensions!

Our systems are available in white, grey, anthracite and black.

Colour information:

  • White = RAL 9003
  • Grey = RAL 7004
  • Anthracite = RAL 7016
  • Black = RAL 9011

Why chain operated day and night blinds?

It may happen that you have a window that needs a day and night blind, but where daily openings and closings are not required. Since the blind is not operated frequently, the addition of a motor at this location is not necessary. This is why Smartblinds has introduced hand-operated day and night roller blinds. This allows you to provide these windows with the same stylish window covering as Smartblinds' smart day and night blinds, but without a motor.

It can also happen that you have a small window for which a day and night blind with motor is too wide. This is because an electric day and night blind requires a minimum width of 66 centimetres to integrate the motor. For windows less than 66 centimetres wide, for example, you can choose manual day and night blinds from Smartblinds. This way, you can fit all your windows with the same style, so you don't have to compromise on the aesthetics of your interior.

Smartblinds are easy to assemble and you install them in less than a minute! With the installation guide delivered with your Smartblinds, you can easily mount the blinds on your window.

Please note:

the fabric tracks of our fabrics consist of a fixed height, while the height differs per window in every home and room. This means that we cannot guarantee that the (blackout) fabric tracks of your day and night blind will be in the desired position when fully down.
