Electric blackout blinds


“Electric blackout blinds” are refer to free hanging roller blinds or cassetted roller blinds using a blackout fabric. Free hanging roller blinds will, of course let in light around the outside of the blind. Cassetted blinds are optionally available with side and/or bottom guides allowing up to 99.99% light exclusion.

Motor Brand, Size and Power

The Better Blind Company is able to supply electric blackout blinds using components from leading automation brands including Somfy and Nice. Electric Blackout Blinds can be automated using 12v battery power, or 24v and 240v mains power. We will take into account the size, control method and usage of the blind to determine which brand, size of motor to recommend and how it is powered.

Freehanging roller blinds

Freehanging roller blinds leak light around the edges. There's always a gap and if you're sensitive to light this can pose a real problem.

Case Blackout Roller Blinds - 240v

These offer a virtual 100% blackout - with the fabric closing within side channels. Ours are supplied with a 'Zip' system that holds the blind fabric in place in the side channels. Need to be powered by a 240v motor.

Cellular/ pleated freehanging blinds - 24v or battery

If your blinds are fitted inside a recess cellular pleated blinds offer superior blackout to standard freehanging roller blinds. They are fitted flush to the top with much smaller gaps at the sides.

Pleated blinds are an 'as good as it gets' blackout solution for those who want a discreet, superior blackout without side channels or cassettes.

They also work well behind a secondary blind or even shutters - as they are slimline and take up minimal...

Electric blackout blinds eliminate light almost completely, making them the perfect window shading system for homes, offices or boardrooms that need light prevented from entering a room. Blackout blinds also boost energy savings by insulating the room as air is trapped between the window pane and blind fabric. This double glazing effect also considerably reduces noise and enhances the sense of privacy.

Electric blackout blinds can be worked from a single motor, or several blinds can be linked and operated as a group.

The motorised option is ideal for those hard to reach places that would not be accessible otherwise. Our electric blackout blinds are fitted with the quietest motors available offering 37db for whisper quiet operation. The motors are incorporated into an enclosed headbox and come complete with side channels achieving virtual blackout. Fabrics are fitted with a zip system which locates into the side channel keeping the fabric taught over 100% of the drop,...

I've looked at the questions that have already been posed and they go some of the way to the situation I have. I will attempt to remove the cassette that houses an electric motor and the sidebars as per the descriptions I have read.

In my case, the black material that forms the blackout blind on the Velux window has small, round plastic grips positioned all along the edge of the material and these fit/slide into the groove in the bars that are attached to the side of the window. It is these plastic 'poppers' that have come out of the groove (caused by friends who thought the blind operated manually and pulled at the material rather than operating the remote).

My question is how do I re-thread these plastic poppers into both side bar grooves and achieve the appropriate degree of tension once I have dismantled the cassette? Particularly as they are driven along their grooves by the remote.Is it obvious? If anyone has experience of this, I would appreciate a reply and...

Blackout blinds are available in assortment of styles. The oldest styles are vertical, and roller blinds. Modern offices typically use vertical blinds to regulate the amount of light entering a room; however, light often enters through the sides. The effectiveness of vertical blinds depends on proper instillation as well as colour and material. Roller blinds are not as popular as in years past mainly because the mechanics in the roller break down easily but is not the case anymore with Deans electric roller blinds which are of guaranteed durable quality. Made out of various fabrics, if fitted to a window properly, they controlled temperature and light.

Vertical Blackout Blinds

These blinds can be purchased in many different colours and styles, but they may possibly not keep all of the light out. Even if placed in an exterior window, light is probably going to seep in through the sides of vertical blinds. It is possible to partially correct this problem by not...

Our blackout fabric blinds offer an acceptable level of blackout for the vast majority of customer requirements but please note, like other suppliers, we are referring to the fabric being blackout and whilst no light will pass directly through it, there will be bleeding of light around the blind edges and any overlaps.

They sit neatly inside the window frame, providing a subtle way to create darkness at any time. Installing a blackout blind couldn't be simpler – you can find more information on fitting your chosen blind in our fitting guides.
