Durable polyester blackout fabric for effective protection

The VELUX anti-heat blackout blind is built to last. The blackout fabric is made of polyester with PVC coating on both sides and is reinforced with horizontal aluminium slats for superior weather resistance. The cloth is tested for wind, UV- and heat degradation, and provides long-lasting performance. The blind runs in side rails made of lacquered aluminium to ensure smooth operation and stability.

Installing your VELUX anti-heat blackout blind is easier than you think


You can install the anti-heat blackout blind from inside the room (for windows from 78cm wide). The blinds require no electrical connection so you don't have to run any cables. It can be done in less than an hour if the VELUX roof window is accessible and under optimal installation conditions. It will not affect your interior design.

Combine products for increased comfort
