Open Bead #6
Open beads for window coverings are typically used for vertical blinds, but can also be used for other types of window coverings such as Roman shades and roller shades. They allow the blinds to be tilted open and closed, and they also provide a decorative element to the window coverings.
Open bead # for blinds is the distance between the inner and outer edges of the bead. It is important to measure the open bead accurately when installing blinds, as it will determine the size of the blind slats and the amount of space needed for the blinds to operate properly.
To measure the open bead, you will need a ruler or tape measure. Place the ruler or tape measure across the bead, with the zero mark at the inner edge of the bead. Measure the distance to the outer edge of the bead. This is the open bead #.
The open bead for blinds is typically 1/2 inch to 1 inch. However, it is important to check the specific requirements for the blinds you are installing, as the open bead may vary depending on the type of blinds.
Here is a table of open bead sizes for different types of blinds:
Type of blind: Open bead (inches)
Vertical blinds: 1/2 inch to 1 inch
Horizontal blinds: 1/2 inch to 1 inch
Roman shades: 1 inch to 1.5 inches
Roller shades: 1/2 inch to 1 inch
Once you have measured the open bead, you can use this information to choose the correct size blind slats and to install the blinds properly.
