Frequently asked questions

  • General information about the blinds
    • Can I combine a blackout blind with other blinds?

      Yes, the blackout blind can also be combined with awning blinds for additional heat protection and insect screens for an insect free environment. However, please note that you cannot combine electrically operated and solar powered blinds.

    • Is a blackout blind the right solution for my room and needs?

      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.

    • When should I select a VELUX blackout blind?

      The VELUX blackout blind is made specifically for original VELUX roof windows. It gives you 100% 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 aluminium top and side channels that is painted black on the inside to prevent light from bleeding in around the edges. Blackout blinds are well suited for bedrooms, children rooms, home cinemas, and 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.

  • Remote controlled blinds
    • When should I select electrically operated blinds?

      VELUX electrically operated blinds are a perfect match for VELUX INTEGRA® electric roof windows and fit these perfectly. However, if you don't have an electrically operated window, but would like to install an electrically operated blind, you simply need to add a KUX 110 control system to your order as well. As the blind is remote controlled, this kind of blind is great for windows that are out of reach or where you expect to adjust the incoming light often.

      Please note that the electrical blind does not come with a remote control of its own. To control the blind, you either use the same remote that you also use for your VELUX Integra window or the remote, that is included in the KUX 110 control system.

    • When should I select solar powered blinds?

      VELUX solar powered blinds are a perfect match for VELUX manually operated roof windows and for VELUX INTEGRA® solar powered roof windows. As the blind comes with a remote control and has a battery that is charged by the sun, it is also ideal for windows that are hard to reach or where you want to adjust the incoming light often. No wiring needed.

    • What do I have to take into consideration when thinking of purchasing a non-manual VELUX blind?

      When thinking about purchasing a non-manual blind, there are a number of factors you may want to consider.

      1. Only genuine VELUX blinds are available with remote control operation. All Itzala blinds are manually operated.

      2. VELUX blinds are also available in an electrically operated or solar operated version. Both are very practical as they allow you to adjust the blinds placement with ease, putting complete daylight control right at your fingertips. Remote control blinds are highly recommended for windows that are out-of-reach, in an extension or high up in a loft, and for windows where you expect to adjust the position of the blind often.

      Electrically operated blinds are only suitable for VELUX INTEGRA® electric roof windows. Solar powered blinds fit all manually operated VELUX roof windows and also all solar powered VELUX INTEGRA® roof windows.

      Both types of blinds are remote controlled, but can, apart from the tilting feature on the electrically operated VELUX venetian blind, also be manually operated. The remote control for the electrically operated blind is battery powered. The solar powered blind is powered by an energy-saving, solar-rechargable battery, which is good for up to 600 operations even if there is no sun for recharging. Electrically operated blinds are also available with io-homecontrol® for intelligent features, such as scheduling.

      3. Non manual blinds are available in multiple versions. Blackout blinds and Roller blinds are available in electrically operated or solar powered versions. Venetian blinds only come in manually operated and electrically operated versions. Awning blinds are available in manually operated or solar powered versions. Pleated blinds are only available in a manually operated version. Both blinds are remote controlled, but can, apart from the tilting feature on the electrically operated VELUX venetian blind, also be manually operated.


      Please note that a ZOZ 228 installation kit is required for the installation of solar and electric operated awning blinds, for VELUX INTEGRA® windows produced before May 2000.

  • Itzala vs. VELUX blinds
    • What is the most significant difference between Itzala and VELUX blackout blinds?

      VELUX blackout blinds are top quality blinds that offer 100% blackout – night or day, as well as effective heat protection. VELUX blackout blinds are made from a dirt-resistant polyester with a special aluminium coating on the back, that helps retain heat in the winter and reflect solar heat in the summer. They comes in a wide range of colours with or without patterns, and you can choose between a manual or remote control operated edition. The blind runs in slim top and side channels in aluminium and can be positioned anywhere in the window. The side channels are painted black on the inside to prevent light from passing in around the edges. The VELUX blackout blinds purchased through the VELUX online shop have a three-year guarantee.

      Itzala blackout blinds are quality blinds that can be offered at a lower price as they are manufactured in bulk. They offer almost complete darkness and are very easy to use. The fabric is a hardwearing, dirt-resistant combination of polyester and lightproof rubber. Itzala blinds come in three different colours. The blind fits into and slides in a slim aluminium frame that allows multi-positioning of the blind. Itzala blackout blinds purchased through the VELUX online shop have a two-year guarantee.

Operation

Manual operation with control bar and stepless positioning

The manually operated VELUX blackout blind with control bar runs in aluminium colour side channels to ensure a smooth operation with stepless positioning. They are well suited for roof windows within reach and are very easy to operate. Simply place your hand on the control bar at the bottom of the blind and raise or lower as you please. This VELUX blackout blind can be installed in minutes with the VELUX unique Pick&Click!® system.

Solar powered operation with remote control and stepless positioning

This blackout blind is remote controlled and powered by an energy-saving solar-charged battery which is good for up to 600 operations even if there is no sun for recharging. Installation is wireless and the blind allows you to enjoy all the features of the io-homecontrol® functionality, e.g. to program the blind to open and close at specific hours. If you have a solar powered INTEGRA® roof window, you can also use the remote control originally supplied with the window. Well suited for windows that are out of reach.

Electric operation with remote control and stepless positioning

This VELUX blackout blind is remote controlled and electrically operated. The blind has stepless positioning and is perfect for roof windows that are out of reach. It can be controlled from anywhere in the room by the remote control originally supplied with your electrically operated VELUX INTEGRA® roof window. If you don't have an electrically operated VELUX roof window, but would like to have an electrically operated blind, simply add a KUX 110 to your order. Warning! Please note that professional electrician might be required to install this product (KUX 110).
