Blockout Roller Blinds

Overview

Our blockout roller blinds/ blackout blinds are a popular stylish window covering. These made-to-measure blackout shades keep light out in daytime and heat in at night saving power.

Ideal for sleeping during the day

These blockout roller blinds have special light-blocking properties, ensuring unwelcome light is kept out. They are ideal for shift workers or those who sleep during the day - especially in the summer months - or parents who want their children to sleep in the early evening or through to late morning.

Blackout blinds with great insulation to save heating costs

These blackout blinds conserve heat at night, retaining the warmth generated by wood burners, gas or electric heaters, heat pumps, or DVS systems. They can also keep things cool indoors during the summer months, saving cooling costs.

Chic designer colours and textures to match a wide range of decor

Our blackout custom blinds can cater for classic or contemporary, subtle or bold, in light or dark colours to work with any space.

Easy smooth operation with motorized blind option

If you're looking for electric motorized blinds, you can buy roller blinds from us fitted with efficient JAI motorization systems. They are smooth and easy to open, close, and adjust being set at the exact position required.
