Frequently Asked Questions About Roof Lantern & Skylight Blinds
How Effective Are Roof Lantern Blinds?
Roof lantern blinds can be very effective if properly installed, as a well-fitted blind will block all incoming light and help regulate temperatures.
A blind that completely covers the roof lantern aperture prevents glare and overheating while also retaining warmth in winter, allowing you to control light and heat gain.
High-quality, customised blinds make the most of roof lanterns by managing sunlight and temperature for ideal comfort. You can check out one of our roof lantern blinds in action here...
What Sizes Do Roof Lantern Blinds Come In?
Roof lanterns vary widely in dimensions. We recognise this so offer a truly bespoke service. Customising roof lantern blind dimensions ensures a perfect fit for optimal light and temperature control.
Our range varies with sizes from 1000mm to 5000mm long and 1000mm to 3000mm wide to accommodate most needs.
For larger lanterns exceeding 5000mm, using two blinds meeting at a central bar works better than an overly long single blind that becomes too heavy. We can advise you on the best option if this is something you need or are maybe looking at solutions for covering conservatory roofs.

Are Automatic Roof Lantern & Skylight Blinds Noisy?

At most, you may notice a soft whirring sound that is unobtrusive and easily drowned out by ambient noise in the room.

Installing roof lantern and skylight blinds yourself is entirely possible, saving you both time and money compared to hiring professionals who charge for measuring, fitting, and multiple visits.
