Whether you want to reduce glare, control room temperature, or make a room feel extra cosy, electric blinds are a convenient and energy-efficient way of covering hard to reach roof lanterns and glass ceilings. Here are just a few of the benefits of having electric roof lantern blinds fitted in your home.
Open and close remotely
One of the most obvious benefits of electric blinds for roof lanterns is their ease of use. Once fitted, the blinds are controlled using a simple handheld remote, wall switch or app on a smartphone or tablet. You don’t need to climb a ladder, stand on a stool or use a pole to open and close hard to reach electric roof lantern blinds – electric blinds are incredibly convenient and much safer!
Pre-program for automated use
Roof lantern electric blinds can also be pre-programmed to open and close at set times of the day. So, if you want to let in lots of light in the morning but want to retain the heat in the evening, you can set them up to open and close accordingly every single day. This is especially convenient for those with busy lifestyles.
Create shade, reduce glare and control room temperature
Roof lanterns and orangeries are extremely popular in modern house extensions and renovations. While they are great for creating a bright and airy room, it can sometimes be hard to control the temperature with it being too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Electric blinds are a great way to block out some light or trap in some of the heat instantly and with minimal fuss.
Conceal and hide
If you want your blinds to disappear from view when they are not in use, we have various blind concealment options to choose from. Roof lantern electric blinds can retract into a purpose-made false ceiling or a concealed blind pocket box. Alternatively, the roller mechanism can be hidden with a custom-made colour-matched fascia.
Smooth Operation and No Sagging
Our SHY electric roof lantern blinds are fitted with a clever ‘zip’ system that guides the blind fabric along a channel on either side of the roof lantern to stop it from jumping out. This ensures that the material is kept taut and doesn’t sag, without overstretching it. The zip and channels also help to give you the best coverage possible with no light ingress around the edge of the blind.
Made to Measure
Whatever the size of your glass roof lantern, electric blinds are custom made to fit perfectly. The pane of glass and roof opening is measured accurately, and the blind is made using premium quality fabric to ensure it looks fantastic and works smoothly too. If you are planning a new home build, extension or renovation, we can also work with architects and builders to create the perfect fit.
