Stacking Thickness Chart

To see or not to see! To take full advantage of a beautiful view, choose a blind or shade with a small "stack size" this will allow you to enjoy the most of your view.

For outside mounts, keep in mind the blind or shade "stack size" when covering doors or large windows; allow enough clearance at the top and/or side.
