Types of VELUX® Blind
Below is a brief description of the various types of Velux blinds available today :
VELUX blackout blinds really do their job, they block out any light whether it be the middle of the day or at night. This makes them perfect all year round ensuring that the person sleeping in the room gets every bit of sleep they can. The blinds are made in a way that ensure that they are able to block out the light even within the daytime. The blinds are made of a polyester which is cleverly dirt resistant and it is combined with a foil made of aluminium that will reflect the heat from the sun while still keeping the heat within the room. Great for all times of the year. The blinds run up and down through channels on the side that are made from aluminium and are designed in a way that stops light from coming in through the sides as well, keeping the blackout effect all around. What really makes these blinds different is that they can be made in a range of colours that will easily be able to fit the user’s preference. They are also created in a range of designs to be able to fit most window frames.
