Questions & Answers

looking for manually skylight blind for VCM 2246

I'm looking for a white manually skylight blind for VCM 2246 I bought from Homedepot store. Does this one fit for me?
Asked by: xixy
I don't think so. According to the Velux website, the VCM skylight requires an electrically operated unit. Unfortunately the manually operated blackout blinds and the electrically operated units are not interchangeable. Give Velux a call @ 800-888-3589 to confirm this info and/or ask if they offer another solution.

Are these blinds too small?

I have two skylights and wanted to put blinds in them. The sides measure 45.25 by 21 inches. I was looking at: VELUX Beige Manually Operated Blackout Skylight Blinds for FCM/QPF 2246 Models Listed dimensions are 19.47 x 43.44. It looks like it has to attach to the walls on all sides. Will this product be too small?
Asked by: Brad
Thanks for looking at VELUX blinds. Unfortunately, I can only say that our blinds are manufactured to fit specific VELUX skylights. If you have a VELUX skylight, then there is a good chance we may have a blind to fit. You may need to locate your serial number to determine the model and give us a call to find what may be available. We can be reached at 800-888-3589.

Replacement blinds needed for VELUX TPS606

I need replacement blinds for two VELUX TPS606 roof windows. Each has external solar screens that are now starting to fray and tear. Unfortunately, VELUX does not support this product anymore and suggested that I simply replace both windows(!). I told them that I was not in the habit of buying a new car when my wiper blades went out, and that I had no intention of purchasing new VELEX windows to solve the problem. I am getting desperate, and would accept any solution that involved outer or inner shading. Any suggestions?
Asked by: goster48
We are very sorry that we can no longer support your roof windows with shading accessories. The TPS 606 was discontinued around 1995. We usually carry spare parts and accessories for our products, however due to the time this window has been discontinued, we are no longer able to support it in that capacity. For future reference, should you decide to replace the windows, we will be happy to discuss with you the products that will provide the smoothest transition. Please feel free to contact us anytime! We want to provide you with the most positive experience that we can.

Customer Reviews

Nature Metallic Gray Manually Operated Blackout Skylight Blinds for FCM/QPF 2230 Models is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved this for 3 days...when it broke I loved this skylight blind for 3 days, when the small loop used for opening and closing the blind snapped right off. I'd opened it no more than 3 times when this happened. Maybe I just got a bad one? I hope it was just a fluke that I got a poor quality one, because I wanted to recommend this. Aside from the durability factor, it's actually a cool product. It's very streamlined so it doesn't bulk up the skylight when opened or closed. It also works seamlessly with the other Velux products (installation tray and hook) which is nice. (You do need the tray in order to install the blind). I was worried the blackout blind might look cheap (as some blackout material does), but it's really sleek while also being effective at blocking out the light. As a point of reference, the blind is similar in material to the vinyl roller blinds you can buy at Home Depot for regular windows. (Thicker and more opaque) Good to know: Install the blind (and tray) when you're installing the skylight for easiest installation. I'd already installed the skylight when I decided to put this in (I hadn't realized how much direct sun I'd be getting). Because it was installed after, it was a bit more involved- required my contractor access the skylight from the roof, etc. It wasn't incredibly difficult to do just a little more involved than if we'd installed it with the skylight itself. I'm annoyed I now have to take it down and return it because of the flaw, but I will likely get another one because the fit was so good with the Velux skylight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves Its Purpose Bit of an extravagance (price-wise) and I can only hope that it serves its purpose when those bright, sunny days of Summer return. The directions are in "picture form", not written, so pay close attention to the detailed drawings when installing this shade onto the skylight. IMPORTANT: One end of both side rails must be installed correctly into the top head rail so that the flexible shade will slide smoothly along a slot molded in each rail (Step #3). Remember to predrill the pilot holes for any mounting screws and don't over tighten them. Finally, when closing the retractable shade, be sure to slide it parallel with the skylight - avoid pulling it towards you or the shade could pull out of the side rails track. Take your time, be observant and you won't have any problem.
