Skylights are great light donors! They give light-flooded rooms and allow a wonderful view of nature: What could be better than watching through a skylight the moving clouds, the wavering trees and flying birds? But there are also times when you would certainly want adequate visibility and sun protection. For example, at night, in the morning and at other times of rest, or when you want to watch TV without exposure to light or work at a desk. Ideal for interior visual and sun protection on the roof window pleats and blinds are suitable. They are available in versatile colors and variants – from light privacy to darkening – and can also be fitted by laymen. For this to succeed,
Selection of pleats or blinds according to purpose
Roof window blind
Pleats and blinds are available in abundance. Therefore, you should think in advance exactly what the pleated or the blind should be used. If you want a roller blind only as a light protection and a feel-good atmosphere, then offer transparent Roman blinds. For a high privacy, which also serves as a glare protection, blinds and flexible pleats are suitable.
