Arch Shade Installation Instructions

Bracket Installation

Mount end Installation Brackets 3” from each side. Space any remaining
brackets evenly.

  • Shades up to 40” wide require 2 brackets
  • Shades 40” to 72” wide require 3 brackets
  • Shades over 72” wide require 4 brackets

Make sure that all brackets are aligned and level. For the best fit on a non-perfect half circle, in a deeply recessed window opening, position the brackets so that the arch is installed close to the original depth that the template was made.


Bracket Installation for Sidemount
Line bracket top with joint where archtop meets top of rectangular window.

Mark holes for screws. Brackets must be level. Remove brackets and drill holes. Insert Bugle Head Screws for keyhole slots only. Approximately 1/8" of the screw should be left protruding.


Installation of Fabric to Rail

Use care when sliding fabric into the rail so that you don’t tear the fabric on the corners of the rail.
Remove the endcaps from the rail.

  • Remove the endcaps from the rail.

  • Slide the fabric stack into the middle of the bottom rail.

  • Fan the fabric out and slide the free stiffened cell of the fabric into the rail. Note that on arches which are not perfect half circles, one end of the fabric stack has a straight edge and the other end has a trimmed (jagged) edge. Orient the fabric correctly so that the trimmed (jagged) edge, when fanned out, will become the outside edge of the arch. The straight side of the fabric stack will form he inner circle of the arch


  • Slide the stiffened cells into the rail so that the ends of the fabric match up with the ends of the bottom rail. Inside the center of the rail, mark where the stiffened fabric ends.

  • For perfect half circles only, cut the plastic stiffener provided to fit the pivot opening. Peel the paper liner off the stiffener and adhere it to the bottom rail in the inner circle of the arch.

  • Replace the endcaps. The four circular dimples on the endcaps
    should face down.

archThe number of arch supports needed and their position are determined by the size and shape of the arch. Perfect half circles will require less support than an eyebrow shaped arch.

  • Mark the locations for the support clips. Position the clips so that the the back of the clips are at the same depth as the back of the
    installation bracket.

  • Place a mark at the top center of the window
    opening. Space remaining clips evenly apart.

  • Make sure that all marks are at a consistent depth within the sill.

  • Screw the arch support clips to the mounting surface through the hole
    in the top of the clip (inside mounts) or through the slot in the back
    (outside mounts).

Installation of the Rail into the Brackets - Standard Mounting Bracket





While beautiful and pleasing to the eye, all Comfortex products are designed to be durable, easily cared for and easily cleaned. Our non-woven fabrics are inherently anti-static and repel dust, but occasional feather dusting or vacuuming may be necessary to keep the fabrics clean and bright.

Cleaning Virtuoso Blackout and Symphony Blackout Fabrics: Our blackout fabrics are inherently anti-static and repel dust, but occasional cleaning may be necessary to keep the fabrics clean and bright. The fabric can be dusted with a soft, clean cloth, feather duster or lightly vacuumed with a soft brush attachment. To spot clean, use a cloth or sponge dipped in a light solution of lukewarm water and clear dish detergent and lightly dab. Do not scrub the surface. Rinse thoroughly. Complete immersion is not  recommended.

Cleaning all other Comfortex fabrics:
Our light filtering and BlackOut fabrics are inherently antistatic and repel dust, but occasional cleaning may be necessary to keep the fabrics clean and bright. The fabric can be dusted with a soft, clean cloth, feather duster or lightly vacuumed with a soft brush attachment. Spills and stains can be lightly blotted with a cloth or damp sponge. More difficult stains may require soaking
in water with mild soap. For this, remove the shades from the window and soak in warm water. DO NOT submerge the Ultra head rail in water. When damp, lay flat to dry or place back in window and raise tightly to recrisp pleats. Please test any stronger cleaners on an unobtrusive portion of the shade before using.
