FAQ’s for Roof Lantern Blinds
How do you operate the blind?
All roof lantern and skylight blinds are motorised and work from a remote control handset or a wire free wall switch
What power supply do I need?
All roof lantern and skylight blinds require a mains power supply with a 5amp fused spur
Can they be battery operated?
NO all roof lantern and skylight blinds use a 240v motor
Where will it fit?
Roof lantern and skylight blinds are fitted within the recess, they can be fitted at the top of the recess to keep the height of the lantern when the blind is being used or if you prefer it can be fitted lower down, it’s you own personal choice
What fabric can I have?
We do a huge range of fabrics in numerous colours, it really depends on what the blind is for
Can I have a Black Out blind?
Yes we can do a roof lantern or skylight blind with black out fabric, they come in a choice of colours to suit all tastes
I don’t want to see any cords can this be avoided?
This will depend on which blind is specified and how big it is, we offer a number a different roof blind solutions. We will inform you if extra tension wires are required and if they will be visible but generally we will find a system that will make sure no guide wires are visible when the blind is not in use
What will the blind look like?
All roof lantern and skylight blinds have a cassette that the fabric and the motor is housed in, then you have side channels which the fabric slides down and some blinds also have a bottom box containing tension cords
What colour is the metal cassette?
The standard cassette colour is White but as all of the metal work is aluminium we can have it all powder coated in a RAL colour of your choice
How big is the cassette and side channels?
This will depend on which blind is specified and also how big the blind is, Deans will tell you everything you need when a detailed survey is carried out
How reliable are the blinds?
All the roof lantern and skylight blinds we supply and install are fitted with Somfy motors, all Somfy motors carry a 5 year guarantee and are used in most electric awnings, gates, shutters and blinds
Can we build the blind into the roof space so it is hidden?
Yes this can be done but we would recommend that we fit the blind after the roof lantern or skylight has been installed, when the blind is built into the building it makes it very difficult if we ever need to get access to it. The remote control will carry the signal through Plaster, Plasterboard, Brick and Wood. We have carried this out a number of times for clients but you have to be aware the blind cannot be moved once fitted as they work to very fine tolerances so extra care is needed when building around it
