Zip Technology

Smooth Operation and No Sagging

Our electric roof lantern blinds use a ‘zip’ system to ensure smooth operation and to make sure the fabric is firm and taut at all times. A ‘zip’ is welded along the length of the cloth and this runs inside an inner channel. This zip is designed to stop the fabric from being pulled out of the channel and to make sure the blind opens and closes smoothly and evenly. The zip system also makes sure that full screen coverage is provided for blackout blinds, with no bowing, gaps or light ingress along the edges.

Smart and Discreet Head Boxes

RAL Colour Match

The smart looking head box, side guide and bottom channel are manufactured from powder-coated aluminium and come in white or black as standard. Colour matching to any RAL colour is also available as an extra. Head box sizes include 65mm, 85mm, 100mm and 150mm and can be easily cleaned and maintained in situ. Although smart in appearance, we recommend that a shelf is installed for the system to sit on and hide the boxes for a more polished look.

Made to Measure

The Perfect Fit

No matter how large or small your ceiling window, we can supply a custom made roller blind specifically for your home. We take the time to visit your property and measure the skylight to ensure the blind covers the area with no gaps and runs smoothly. If you are still in the planning stages of a new home build, extension or renovation, we can work with architects and builders to ensure the perfect fit.

Simple Installation

No Fuss

Our electric roof lantern and skylight blinds are fitted by our experienced fitting team who will ensure everything is carried out with the utmost consideration for your home. Super efficient and very tidy we’ll install your new electric blinds quickly and with care. We are also very happy to work with architects, builders and interior designers to make sure everything fits and works as required.

Extra Large Lantern Blinds

No Sagging

For large roof lanterns, we use our heavy duty electric blind system which is designed to provide maximum coverage without sagging. Using a double motor system, the blind cleverly adjusts the tension of the fabric as it opens; once the blind is full deployed or stopped, the motors gently turn in the opposite direction to remove any sag. These extra large electric blinds also use two very thin (1.5mm) steel cables across the length of the glazing to provide extra support to the large expanse of fabric.

Max width – 6.5 metres, Max length – 10 Metres

Featured Project

Electric Blackout Roof Lantern Blind

The owner of this fabulous home in Curdridge wanted an electric roof blind fitted in their bedroom suite. The room featured a large roof lantern which looked fantastic, but let too much light in during the long summer days and the room lacked any cosiness during the winter. They wanted an effective solution to ensure a better night’s sleep in the summer months, as well as create some extra insulation during the winter.
