One of most popular FAQ’s has to do with measuring for a Tableaux® faux iron arch installation. Let’s take the mystery out of it to make your first arch installation easy from the very start.
First of all to get a quick estimate of how your project will cost, use your MSRP pricing grid and find the intersection of the width and height of the arch. Your retail price will be in that cell.
Now for dealers to receive a schematic drawing of the arch from us, you can make a template of the opening using sturdy brown paper, cut it out and mail it in to us or order the arch with SnugSeal.
SnugSeal is an alternative to making a template! Learn more about SnugSeal by referring to our website where we have the whole story with pictures about this labor-saving device. Basically, SnugSeal is a bulb gasket that is firmly attached to the outside edge of the Tableaux. We begin by noting your width, leg and peak heights actual arch measurements, then we take a 3/8” deduction all the way around. A Tableaux with SnugSeal application installs tightly within the opening, eliminating any light gap around the edges and filling in any irregularity in the opening itself.
So either way, your Tableaux arches are easy to order. We happily provide written instructions about either method to our dealers that request them.
The look and feel of wrought iron can be yours at a fraction of the weight and cost with Tableaux.
We are sooo excited about introducing our new Snug Seal™ option for inside mount arch installations. Traditional Tableaux® faux wrought iron orders required the use of templates for all inside mounted windows and niches. Snug Seal™ eliminates this need with a bulb gasket that is pre-assembled around the Tableaux frame.
The Snug Seal™ gasket creates a uniform border around the piece and allows for dimensional variations up to ½”, thus eliminating light gaps.
Who wants to draw large, high arch templates and pay to send them in? While this option is still available, we think the time and money saved, even with the nominal cost of Snug Seal™, will make your ordering and installation experience with Tableaux® arches a breeze.

Like the look of Tudor? You'll love what designer Kim McNelis of Blinds by Kim in Arlington, TX created with her client.
Using our versatile Toronto design and adapting the center cross-overs with a twist design, these windows look like the real wrought iron. The selection of New England Pewter for the iron finish color adds to the authentic look of Tudor design. Softened gothic arches, natural materials and high quality are characteristics of Tudor design elements.
Wrought iron windows had a practical function to supported leaded glass windows as well as decorative craftsmanship. Tableaux®'s light weight give the look and feel of charming European cottages in today's contemporary homes
Hmm, that’s quite an assertion. However, I just returned from Orlando for the Budget Blinds upbeat annual convention that acknowledged the national gloom, but between the aisles, what I saw was beginnings of industry innovation and creativity. Here’s the positive signs of new growth I saw there:
1. Window treatment dealers looking for creative upgrades that give maximum impact for existing homeowners’ window treatments.
A great way to add ornamental wrought iron-like design to your window treatments is to order Tableaux® faux iron inserts for your shutters. We are making it easier to merge your customized Tableaux to fit in shutters through product education from major manufacturers.
