Light weight, expanded polystyrene (Styrofoam) sections are simply glued together with a full sized low temperature glue gun (200 - 250 degrees Fahrenheit) to create your special cornice for any size window or door. We do not recommend using a mini glue gun because you will not be able to apply enough glue quick enough to achieve a good bond. Since there is no need to glue or staple the fabric to the cornice, you are able to change the color/pattern of the fabric as often as you change the decor in your home - it's like having a whole new cornice!
How do I determine what height (drop) to order? T he Avalon Cornice is offered in 9", 12", and 15 drop (height) in any width that you need (up to 50').
The 9 Avalon Cornice looks great on small bathroom & kitchen windows. They are also popular for children's rooms.
The 12 Avalon Cornice looks great on standard size windows and over sliding glass doors. The 15 Avalon Cornice looks wonderful on very wide windows or in rooms with very tall ceilings. How do I determine what length to order?
To determine what length Avalon Cornice to order, measure the inside of your opening and add 1-4 on each side - this is called the overlap. If your opening has molding around it, measure the outside of the molding on the left side of your opening to the outside of the molding on the right side of the opening and add 1. But, if you have a curtain rod or vertical blind rail that your cornice will be covering, measure the length of the rail and add 1. Pick the longest measurement from above that applies to your opening, and this will be the inside measurement of your Avalon cornice. For longer cornices than are listed, order the longest cornice listed and order additional Extension Kits in the same drop to achieve the required length.The outside length of your Avalon Cornice is the inside measurement PLUS the thickness of the 2 end caps. Since each Avalon end cap is approximately 2" thick in the center, the outside length is approximately the inside measurement PLUS 4".
What is a Starter Kit? Our Outside Mount Starter Kit contains.
2 - 5" brackets (9" & 12" drop), or 3 - 5" brackets (15 drop). Set of complete, easy to read instructions. How are the cornices attached to the wall?
5 brackets and corresponding end caps are provided with our kits. You may wish to substitute 3" brackets for the standard 5" brackets and modified End Caps to accommodate the 3 brackets to move your cornice closer to the wall. While our 3" or 5" brackets will be perfect most of the time, occasionally you may need custom made brackets for your application. We have made custom brackets as short as? " and as long as 8" for our customers.
We will make them for you using the standard 5" brackets that are provided with your kits; this price includes removing styrofoam from the end caps if shorter than 5", or providing extension pieces that you will glue onto the end caps to accomodate brackets that are longer than 5. For the handy person, here's how we make the custom brackets. Cut the bracket using tin snips so that the two pieces are approximately the same length. Make the brackets the desired length.
If you are making brackets longer than 5", for example 6" brackets, cut a piece of strap aluminum 1½ wide X? " thick available at most hardware stores at least 1" longer than the desired bracket size less 5.If we are making 6" brackets, we would cut the strap aluminum 6" (desired length) - 5" (standard bracket size) + 1" = 2 mimimum. If you are making brackets that are shorter than 5, then cut the brakcet accordingly so that the 2 flat pieces overlap each other to achieve the desired length. Using pop rivets, attach the pieces together. The bracket pieces are pointing in the right direction, and. The pop rivet heads are at the bottom of the bracket pointing upwards.
