There are many types of blinds on the market today. Very few however, match the beauty and practicality of Velux Blinds. Velux is a huge company, and dominate the skylight roof market. Based in Denmark, they employ roughly 10,000 people and have sales offices in 40 countries world wide. Not bad eh? Therefore if you have a skylight window in your home, or are looking at having some installed, there’s a good chance they will be Velux windows. Apart from the obvious high quality and craftmanship of the windows, there is a big advantage to selecting Velux to supply your windows; they have a huge array of blinds that will fit the windows EXACTLY.
Velux blinds give a very similar appearance to the popular Perfect Fit range, in that they are fitted into the window with a neat and stylish frame that surrounds the blind fabric. As each blind is manufactured by the same company as the windows, they fit the window exactly. This means that the blackout blinds block out 100% of the light coming through the window, making them the most effective blackout blind on the market!
All of the Velux ranges are tensioned, meaning they work perfectly on the skylight windows. You have complete control as to where the blind sits, and as to how much light is allowed into the room. The venetian options give you extra versatility to tilt the slats of the blind, as well as lifting them up and down.
Selecting the ideal blind for your window couldn’t be easier. Every Velux roof window has a unique data plate that details the type and size of the window. Check your windows type and size, no measurements are needed.
