The Top Benefits of Installing Solar Blinds for Flat Roof Windows

If you have flat roof windows or skylights in your home, you know the challenges they can present when it comes to controlling natural light levels and interior room temperature.

Traditional window blinds and shades simply aren’t designed to accommodate those unique angled configurations, often leaving harsh sunlight streaming in or making it difficult to adjust them without straining on a ladder.

But there’s an innovative solution from Dakea that solves all of those issues: our premium solar blinds for flat roof windows.

Specially engineered for skylights and roof windows between 0-15 degree pitches, these solar powered blinds provide exceptional light control, insulation, privacy, and convenient operation tailored to be the perfect fit for your home’s distinct windows.

The ultimate flat roof window treatment

Our solar blinds for flat roof windows take the frustrations out of dealing with angled skylights and roof windows. Their advanced design and smart features make it incredibly easy to fine-tune the precise amount of natural light entering your rooms at any time of day or night.

100% blackout capabilities for bedrooms

Double pleated blackout blinds provide full room-darkening abilities to block out every bit of exterior light when desired, creating the ideal sleep environment in bedrooms with skylights or flat roof windows.

51% solar heat blockage

Within the blind’s innovative material is a special aluminium honeycomb layer that reflects up to 51% of the sun’s rays. This exceptional insulating barrier helps reduce solar heat gain during summer months for a more comfortable interior.

Solar power operation with no wiring needed

One of the biggest hassles of installing blinds or shades on flat roof windows is the visible cord and wiring to connect motorisation or automated controls. But that’s no longer an issue thanks to the solar-powered design of our blinds. An integrated solar panel discretely charges the blinds’ battery pack to enable simple wireless operation with no exterior wiring required.

Wireless wall switch for easy control

Rather than dealing with dangling pull cords that can be difficult to reach on high skylights and angled windows, our solar blinds include a factory-paired wireless wall switch. With the push of a button, you can conveniently open, close, or adjust the tilt of the blinds from anywhere in the room.

Robust battery life for reliable performance

Thanks to the blinds’ high performance battery pack, a single charge provides reliable operation for up to 600 open/close cycles. You’ll never have to worry about the battery running out of power, even in areas with lower sunlight exposure.

Smart home voice/app control

In addition to the included wireless wall switch, our solar blinds are also compatible with popular smart home systems like io-homecontrol®. This allows you to automate the blinds’ schedules for your daily routines or control them remotely from your smartphone or with voice commands.

Group controls up to 200 blinds simultaneously

Using the wireless remote control, you can easily control up to 200 individual solar blinds all in the same direction simultaneously. This makes it a breeze to quickly adjust light levels across an entire floor or throughout the home with the push of a button.

Seamless, integrated window design

While functionality is incredibly important, our solar blinds also prioritise a clean, stylish installation with their anodised aluminium rails. There are no visible cord holes or unsightly external wiring to detract from your home’s interior aesthetics. The blinds mount discretely inside the window frame for a streamlined finish that blends seamlessly into your decor.

Are solar blinds right for your home?

By now you can surely see all the light control, insulation, convenience, and aesthetic benefits that our solar blinds for flat roof windows provide for those challenging skylight and angled window configurations.

But are they truly worth the investment compared to traditional manual blinds or shades? Absolutely!

In addition to all of their advanced technical features and smart capabilities, these premium solar smart blinds offer quality-of-life improvements and cost savings:

Increased privacy and security

The blackout material provides 100% privacy during day time or night time – not just control over the amount of light. This ensures total seclusion and peace of mind in bedrooms, bathrooms, or other areas with flat roof windows visible from neighbouring properties.

Enhanced safety for children and pets

With their fully cordless and wireless design, solar blinds eliminate any dangling cords which could pose a potential strangulation hazard around young children or pets. This crisp, clean installation creates a much safer environment, especially in nurseries or play areas.

Energy savings year-round

By blocking up to 51% of the sun’s UV rays in the hot summer months, the blinds help reduce demands on air conditioning to keep interiors cool and comfortable. Then in winter months, the insulation properties help prevent heat loss inside to minimise usage of heating systems. All of this translates into lower monthly utility bills.

Simple operation

If your skylights or roof windows are installed high on vaulted or cathedral ceilings, our solar blinds make it incredibly easy to adjust them without having to stand precariously on stools or ladders. The wireless remote and smart solar blinds app/voice controls allow you to manage light levels effortlessly from anywhere in the room.

Long-lasting quality and protection

More than just insulating and light-blocking properties, the aluminium honeycomb material provides long-lasting durability able to withstand years of use and exposure to the elements. You can rely on these solar blinds to perform optimally for seasons to come. Plus, we provide a robust two-year guarantee for added peace of mind.

Stylish, modern aesthetic

Whether your home’s interior style is contemporary, minimalist, farmhouse, or somewhere in between, the sleek lines and concealed hardware give our solar blinds an attractive, upscale look that seamlessly coordinates.

With so many functional benefits and design advantages, it’s easy to see why our solar blinds for flat roof windows take the hassle and headaches out of covering those challenging skylight configurations.
