Frequently Asked Questions About Blinds
Queries about blinds
The dataplate gives essential information about the size and model of your roof window so you can buy the right blind, replacement glazing or replacement window.
There's no need to measure your window or glazing area.
1. Open your window
2. Check the inside of the frame and/or sash to find a dataplate
3. There may be a protective red, blue or grey case, simply open this to find your dataplate
4. Note the series, eg 735
5. Note the size, eg, 5/9
The position of your dataplate will vary according to your Roto model. If you have any questions, get in touch with our team who will be more than happy to help.

The blackout blinds we sell are designed to fit your roof window perfectly. Our selection spans a rainbow of colours and statement-making stylish graphic prints, with something for every room. Go bold with a sumptuous dark red, add a touch of luxury with a metallic print or add interest to a child’s bedroom with a fun pattern or Disney or Star Wars blackout blind.
Roller blinds offer practical style and are an easy way to soften daylight entering your room. With a huge range of colours and prints, our range has a blind for everyone. Add impact with a bright, orange or yellow, create a luxurious mood with a rich red or deep blue, or add a design touch with a floral or graphic print. Whatever your décor, you’ll find a blind to match in our extensive selection.
The durable fabric subtly diffuses the brightness, softening the mood, and aluminium side channels prevent light from passing in around the edges. The blind also offers variable opening positions, giving you the flexibility to block the sun's rays whilst enjoying the view and daylight.
VELUX Roller BlindsElectric and solar powered roller blinds are available to fit your VELUX INTEGRA windows. This gives you absolute control over your windows and blinds from anywhere in the home. Combine the roller blind with an external shutter for additional heat protection, sound proofing and absolute blackout.
The roller shutter is fitted on the outside of your window, effectively stopping the elements, temperature and noise entering your room. You’ll still be able to enjoy fresh air as you can open your window as normal with the shutter installed. If you want some shading without blacking out the room, install a VELUX blind.
These shutters are designed to look sleek and be easy to use. They're available in electric or solar operated remote control so they can be installed and used with your VELUX INTEGRA windows.

Venetian blinds are made low maintenance, moisture-resistant materials with slats that can be tilted in any direction to adjust the angle and amount of incoming light, and protect your privacy. And whatever your colour scheme, there's a blind to match.
By fitting these blinds on your VELUX window you'll be able to create total blackout during the day, block direct sunlight with stepless free positioning in the frame, and get protection from cold weather.
VELUX Roman blinds are ideal for living spaces, bedrooms and other rooms:
- An elegant, decorative finish with softer lighting
- Flexible, stepless positioning
- A range of beautiful fabrics for easy update
- Faster, easier installation with the VELUX Pick&Click™ design
Not only do you get a contemporary, stylish finish, you can easily change the fabric to match the change of seasons or new décor, and easily remove it for cleaning. Opt for a darker colour scheme to dim incoming light; use lighter, transparent fabrics to create beautiful soft lighting effects.
