Product Overview

VELUX skylight blinds can help turn an ordinary room into something special, and a variety of colors are available, so you can customize the look in your living space. Our solar powered blinds allow you to control the light and heat that enters a room using only the power of the sun, and they do not require wiring or an electrician to install because they are operated by a remote control keypad. During summer days when temperatures are high and the sun is extra bright, the blinds can be closed to reduce potential solar heat gain, and during winter nights when temperatures are low, the blinds can be closed to provide an extra layer of thermal insulation and keep warm air indoors. Blackout blinds convert day into night, blocking even the brightest sunlight, which makes them perfect for rooms that require total room darkening such as bedrooms or TV/entertainment rooms. They are ideal for afternoon siestas and light summer nights.

  • VELUX solar powered blinds are eligible for a 30 percent federal tax credit, including product and installation costs
  • The blackout blind has an energy efficient aluminum coating on the non-visible exterior side which acts as a barrier and provides optimal protection against heat. This blind can improve your energy performance rating by as much as 45 percent, and reduces your heating and cooling costs due to the better natural climate control in your room
  • Maximum light blocking - tight design and light blocking fabric block sunlight so that less than 2 percent enters the room
  • Blackout blinds provide glare control by blocking direct sunlight to significantly reduce or eliminate glare on your tv or computer screen, which increases the versatility of the room
  • DSD C06 models are designed specifically for VELUX FS C06 series skylights
  • Installation on non-VELUX skylights or other VELUX models is not recommended
  • FS series skylights come with Pick&Click brackets pre-installed for fast and easy installation of sunscreening blinds and accessories
  • VELUX radio frequency wall-mounted keypad (KLI 110, included with solar blinds) or advanced remote (KLR 100, sold separately) allow the user to operate skylights and blinds from almost anywhere within the house and can operate skylights and blinds individually or as part of a group
  • With the KLR 100 remote you can create programs to control the blinds automatically based on time of day, day of the week, or month of the year
  • Color - nature metallic gray with thermo coating (color 3185)
  • More colors are available for ordering through or special order at your local store
  • Skylight sold separately
  • Skylights with blinds factory-installed at no extra charge are also available

Can you manually open and close the Velux solar powered skylight or must you use the remote?

I am thinking about purchasing the Velux solar powered skylight, blinds, etc. I have actually three questions: (1) Can this solar powered skylight also be manually operated? (say the battery goes dead?) (2) Are there Venetian blinds that work with this skylight, or only blackout or filtered light blinds? (3) Do you have an asphalt roof kit for installation that goes with it? Thank you.
Asked by: Anonymous
1. No, they cannot be operated manually. The good news is that the motor is smart enough to know that if it doesn't have enough power to close, it will not allow you to open. This should alleviate any concerns for not being able to close the skylight. 2. There are no ventian blinds that are solar powered. 3. There is an asphalt shingle roof flashing kit for this skylight. It is model EDL.

The window frame doesn't exactly match

I've just measure the window frame and it's 36"x18". None of the Velux choices match those dimensions. If I purchase the option closest in size, can I make it work? -Chris
Asked by: Chris
No, it will not work, as the blind fits perfectly withing the daylight area. Each VELUX Skylight model has it's own specific model blind. If you can please provide the serial number on your skylight (metal tag, bottom inside frame), I can provide the model blind that is compatible with your unit. Thank you.

Customer Reviews

Nature Metallic Gray Solar Powered Blackout Skylight Blinds for FS C06 Models-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy!! Best purchase!! I previously had a semi light blocking shade on the skylight over my bed-so I got up when the sun came out! I replaced my skylight and decided to get a black out shade and could not be happier with the choice! I purchased this item in late October and it arrived within 3 days- much quicker than the on-line checkout indicated. I initally looked at ordering from another site but Home Depot had the shade for $50 less plus at the time free shipping. The shade is supposed to be an easy install- which I think it would have been but I had issues with how high the skylight is and how it was boxed in. My guess is depending on how savvy you are it may take 20-30minutes. Downside- the directions were not the best/easiest to follow but eventually I was able to put it together. After you install the shade you do have to sync the control/pad to the shade which was a little tricky but worked. Overall I am very impressed with the shade. It works perfect, has an easy to use remote that allows you to completely open or shut the shade or stop it wherever you want (you do not have to mount the pad on the wall; you can leave it in a drawer like I do), it completely blocks out light and it is solar powered which means no wires or mess. I have only been using the shade for a few weeks but I am highly impressed and think it is a great price for the product- plus you get a tax credit for solar powered items!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product! If only.... Velux only carries this product in white in the U.S. In the UK you can choose from 40 colors and even different type fabrics. Come on Velux of the US, it's the 21st century! Everything about this powered shade is well done and exceeded even my expectations which is hard to do. The only thing that ruins it is the vinyl fabric and no color choice.
