    What are the different types of Blackout Blind?

    At, we have a range of blinds featuring blackout fabrics. We also have a selection of products with additional features such as head cassettes and side channels that limit light ingress even further, as explained below.

    Roller Blinds 

    Blackout Roller Blinds are perhaps the most popular form of blind used for light control. We have manual and electrically operated blinds available with blackout fabrics. On request, roller blinds can be provided with the option of a closed cassette and side channels to reduce incoming light even further.

    Blackout Loft blinds

    Our excellent quality, own brand skylight blinds for VELUX, RoofLITE, FAKRO and DAKSTRA feature light-proof fabrics in a range of popular colourways. These also have fascia and side channels that serve to block out the light even further, making them extremely popular for those who have converted their loft space into an extra bedroom.

    Conservatory Black Out Blinds

    Blinds can be used in conservatories to transform them into a temporary bedroom in warmer months. Many of our blinds types are suitable for conservatory sides. We also have the option of a free no-obligation, home consultation for those who have tricky, shaped roof windows or simply wish to receive expert advice.

    Pleated Black Out Blinds 

    Pleated blinds are available with cellular fabric. The lifting cords of the cellular pleated blinds, run through the honeycomb structure of the fabric meaning there are no visible holes in the fabric itself. Whilst standard 'zig zag' pleated blinds are available in black-out fabric, light does shine through these holes, so for a clean-looking, light-proof fabric, we would recommend selecting cellular fabrics.

    Electric Blackout Blinds

    Many of the blinds in our automated blinds section can be purchased with blackout fabrics. Our motorised bedroom roller blinds in particular can be purchased on request with head cassettes, side channels and bottom profiles to enhance light exclusion. The performance of these blinds, in terms of their ability to limit light ingress, is suitable for most home and commercial installations.

    Zip Blinds

    For those who need the ultimate in light control, we are also able to supply ZIP blinds, which comprise of roller blinds with blackout fabric, a head cassette and side channels. A 'zip' is welded to the edges of each side of the fabric. This zip is encapsulated by unique side channels. This combination of zipped fabric and side channels reduces the amount of light ingress and also retains the fabric within the side channels under impact or during changes in room pressure caused by opening and closing doors and windows or strong draughts. ZIP blinds are a popular choice for those who have home cinemas. ZIP blinds are also available as roof blinds for challenging, large atrium, sloping or skylight windows. They are available as a manually operated blind, or they can be motorised and controlled by radio handset, mobile app, AV or home automation system. Each ZIP blind is unique, so please contact us if you require further information or a quotation by emailing [email protected].​


    Frequently Asked Questions about Blackout Blinds


    What are blackout blinds, and how do they work?

    Blackout blinds are window coverings that are designed to block out light from entering a room. They are typically made of thick, opaque materials such as vinyl, fabric, or PVC, and sometimes have a special coating that reflects light and prevents heat from entering or escaping through your windows. For enhanced light exclusion, some blackout blinds feature cassetted headboxes, side channels and bottom profiles. Whereas for some blinds, blackout only refers to the fabric and where this is the case, there will be some degree of light ingress around the edges of the fabric.


    What are the benefits of using blackout blinds?

    The benefits of using blackout blinds include complete light control, improved privacy and increased energy efficiency. For those wishing to enjoy undisturbed sleep in the day time, or during the long daylight hours of summer, blackout blinds will help reduce light levels. Blackout blinds can also help reduce noise levels and protect furniture and fabrics from fading due to sunlight exposure. Blackout fabrics are also available in a vast range of colours and pattern designs, so there will be no shortage of inspiration for those wishing to add a splash of color to a design feature to their decor.


    How long do blackout blinds last?

High-quality blackout blinds can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years with proper care and maintenance.


    Does the color of blackout blinds matter?

    The color of blackout blinds does not impact their ability to block out light or provide energy efficiency. If a fabric is genuinely blackout, then it will lot allow light to penetrate through the fabric itself, regardless of colour.


    When should you use blackout blinds?

    Do blackout blinds attract heat?
