Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

VELUX skylight blinds can help turn an ordinary room into something special. 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. A variety of colors are available, so you can customize the look in your living space.

  • Consider upgrading to a solar powered blind which is eligible for a 30 percent federal solar tax credit and operated by remote control
  • DKC 2246 models are designed specifically to fit VELUX FCM 2246 and QPF 2246 series skylights
  • Installation on Non-VELUX skylights or other VELUX models is not recommended
  • Manual control rod for blinds (ZXT 200) is sold separately for out-of-reach applications
  • Skylight sold separately
  • Important: For FCM 2246 series skylights, accessory tray (ZZZ 199 2246, sold separately) is required for installation of skylight blinds

Answer: 
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.

We do not offer a manual blind for the VCM 2246. We offer a solar powered blind, only.
Thank you.

Replacement blinds needed for VELUX TPS606

This question is from White Manually Operated Blackout Skylight Blind for FCM/QPF 2246 Models
Asked by

August 12, 2013
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?

Answer: 
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

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 22, 2013
