The VELUX Blackout Blind is made specifically for original VELUX roof windows. It gives you 99,9% blackout both day and night and has a reflective aluminium coating on the back that reflects heat from the sun in summer while retaining heat in the winter. It can be positioned anywhere in the window and runs in a slim silver coloured aluminium top and side channels.
Blackout blinds are made of a lightproof fabric that effectively blocks out incoming light. They can help to ensure a good night's sleep or a restful nap during the day and are recommended for bedrooms and children's rooms. They are also perfect for home cinemas and guest rooms where you feel annoyed by flickering street lamps, passing car lights, or simply want to control the light coming in, or reduce heat gain and heat loss.
Blinds are made from a dirt-resistant polyester. They come in a wide range of colours with or without patterns, and you can choose between a manual or remote control operated edition. Not depending on the colour, all blackout blinds have the same effect. The material is certified by Oeko-Tex®, which means you can be confident in these textiles, they are tested for harmful substances. The VELUX blackout blinds purchased through our online shop have a three-year guarantee.
