When ordering blinds for your Lumen rooflight, please be aware that in most cases, the blinds will arrive after the delivery of your rooflight. Whilst our Lumen Conservation rooflights are available from stock, all blinds are produced once ordered and can take up to 10 working days.
The blinds are supplied with special brackets that fix to the casement section of the rooflight. If you would like us to fit the brackets to the rooflights for you, prior to dispatch, please let us know at the point of order. If you do not tell us you will need to fit the brackets when they arrive with the blind. In some cases this will involve you detaching the winding mechanism and holding the casement open to fit the top set of brackets. On larger rooflights the casements are heavy and you need to exercise caution when lifting the casement. Pleated blinds are the most frequently used type and generally give the best results.
The blinds consist of fabric which is folded as concertina. Usually the fabric is made from polyester or composite materials and normally has a reflective backing to reduce heat gain. Fabrics are made in different densities to give more or less shading.
The pleats are 25mm pitch. The blinds are usually manually operated but can be used with a pole for areas out of reach. The advantages are neat fixings and good coverage of the glass.
Electric blinds are also available. Please talk to us about the available options.
Blinds are available for the escape/access rooflights however, due to the location of the fixing brackets these can only act as a privacy blinds rather than offering full blackout.

When choosing your blind please ensure that you request the right size for your rooflight. Lumen rooflights are supplied with a small brass tag on the liners and this will provide your rooflight reference. If you are ordering blinds for an escape or access rooflight, you need to inform us at the point of order as these are sized differently to the main product range.Important
