How to Measure Symphony Shades

Measuring Summary

  1. We encourage you to use a metal tape measure and measure to the nearest 1/8 of an inch on your windows.

  2. Print and view the detailed How to Measure Guide.

  3. Print out the Easy Measuring Guide form to write down your measurements. (Alternately use Skylight Measuring Guide or Energy Side Track Measuring Guide)

  4. Width: Measure the exact inside measurement of the window at three different places. Be sure to write all of these measurements down on the printed out guide. Then circle and use the narrowest measurement.

  5. Length: Measure the exact inside distance from top of window to the sill at three different places. (See diagram) Write the measurement down on the Measuring Guide. Circle the longest measurement. (Except for Skylight & Sidetrack shades - which require the shortest length because of tracks)

  6. Always double check your measurements!

  7. Window shades come with brackets which can be used for either inside or outside mounts.
