Frequently asked questions about our anti-heat blackout blinds

When should I choose a VELUX anti-heat blackout blind?
Choose the VELUX Anti-heat blackout blind if you seek both effective heat protection and darkening for your attic rooms. Ready-to-use wall-switch included for electrical operation, offering convenience alongside sustainability due to its solar drive, enabling comfortable living in the attic.
How does the anti-heat blackout blind differentiate from the anti-heat blind?
The anti-heat blackout blind features a blackout fabric, ensuring complete darkness and effective heat reduction. This combi product makes it the ideal choice for bedrooms, children’s rooms and guest rooms, where creating a comfortable environment for optimal sleep is important. In contrast, the anti-heat blind utilises a transparent mesh fabric, allowing daylight to enter the living spaces while reducing solar radiation. This maintains a clear view outside. 
Why are exterior sunscreens best for heat protection?
During summer, attics can quickly become uncomfortably hot. Our exterior heat protection blinds and shutters offer effective heat protection to combat this issue. By being installed from the outside of the roof window, they block the sun's rays before they hit the window panes. VELUX heat protection blinds and shutters provide shading from the outside while still allowing ample daylight into the room. This solution is perfect for areas like bedrooms, home offices, living rooms and even bathrooms, where you want to reduce glare and heat, but want to maintain natural light and a view of the outdoors.
