Roof Light Blinds

Roof Light Blinds are becoming more popular as our weather and living spaces are changing.  If you have a large or small roof lantern/glass roof then you will know how much light and heat they let in. It’s lovely having natural light entering our homes.  However, the glare and heat can restrict the usage of some of our rooms. One way of controlling this is by installing motorised roof light blinds. We have a choice of systems to suit your own requirements.  Hence each blind is made to measure.  Consequently we can design a blind to fit most window shapes and areas.

Markilux 879 Tracfix Roof Light Blinds are an example of an ideal solution for roof lights and roof lanterns.  There are no visible guide wires on this system.  The metalwork comes in a range of powder coated colours for your to choose from.  You can also select your  fabric from a wide choice of plain colours or patterns.  You can, therefore, have a material to blend in with your home decor.  This Markilux blind is easily and efficiently operated from a remote control handset.

Types of windows for Roof light Blinds

– Velux window

Due to the height of the ceiling, motorisation is the most popular and normally the only way to control the roof light blinds. As the motor works on RTS frequency you can add in a sun sensor that will automatically close the blind to stop the room overheating, even you are not in.


With a wide choice of fabrics so you can choose how much light you want to let in.  As well as the standard variety of designs and colours, we have a popular blackout range. These are often chosen for roof light blinds in bedrooms and rooms where screens are frequently used.
