Our Guide to Installing a Blind to a Skylight

Skylight windows are made by a range of manufactures, therefore it is necessary to know which brand your skylight window is. Velux are predominant suppliers of skylights, but there are other manufactures as well.

Finding The Brand

You will find the manufacturers' mark on the identification plate located on the inside opening. Make a note of the code as you will need this to choose the right size blind, although many blind suppliers make blinds to fit the various models.

Sizes

Skylight blinds come as a standard size to fit a window model; they are not designed to be cut or trimmed to fit, as this compromises the aluminium frame and blind itself.

Installation

The frame is in separate parts, all you need to do is fit the parts inside the window reveal. The skylight blind operates in aluminium side channels with a cord system, which can be placed anywhere in the window.

This enables you to use the blind in various open positions. For example, the blind can be fully retracted to expose the majority of the window, allowing the maximum amount of light to flood into the room. Alternatively, the blind can be pulled half way down the window to help reduce direct sunlight.

Styles

Skylight window blinds are available in two styles, roller or Venetian. Blackout blinds are ideal for bedrooms as they will prevent unwanted light from entering the room. During the summer both styles of blinds can be closed to help prevent heat build-up.

In offices Venetian blinds are a good choice as they give you complete control over the amount of incoming light by angling the slats. Angling the slats also means you can direct light away from work stations to minimise screen glare.

Colours

Both skylight Venetian and roller blinds are available in a range of colours, making it easy to colour coordinate with your d├ęcor or chose a contrast colour as an accent.

Blinds are the ideal window dressing for skylight windows, providing a non-intrusive, sleek method of covering the window that is easy to operate.
