Answer

You may consider speaking with a VELUX Customer Service Representative @ 1-800-888-3589 to determine which shade will be appropriate for this skylight. There are slight size difference in shades that will fit a fixed skylight and those that will fit the venting style.

Does this come in black out?

Answer

This is a blackout shade that is in a double pleated design. There is a Mylar material within the pleated pockets that block out the light.

If for some reason the solar powered shade fails to operate can it be opened manually.

Hi Dennis. Yes, you can open the solar powered shade manually if needed. Please send us an email request to: vcustomer.service@velux.com and we will send you a short video on that procedure.

Asked by Julio September 10, 2020

Answer

If this is a deck mounted VELUX skylight manufactured from 2010-present day, this skylight should be the C06 size. It is available as a fixed unit (FS C06) or a manually venting (VS C06) or the electrically operable (VSE C06) and there is even a solar powered option called VSS C06. If you have a particular question about your skylight, please reach out to VELUX Customer Service @ 1-800-888-3589.

Do you have to remove the screen to use the blind?

Answer

Hi Becky. Insect screens for roof windows are an optional purchase and operate on a track system. If a screen was in place on this roof window, it would require that you raise it in order to operate the shade.

Originally, I requested help from manufacturer of our skylight (Velux). Velux provided no assistance and didn't even list this product on their website. They told me my installation was custom and they didn't offer a product to provide light filtering. I found product on Home Depot website and decided to order. Installed with some filler trim and liked result. After installation I sent an email to Velux explaining how this product helped solve a need that I had for a custom Velux skylight. I recommended they add to database for future reference and customer support needs. Thank you Home Depot for offering this "Velux" product with sufficient detail to help homeowners willing to work around non-standard product sizes.

These solar powered blinds are great! We purchased three blinds for our velux skylights, one light blocking for our bedroom and two light filtering. They were very easy to install with clear instructions and even came with a little screwdriver for the supplied torx head screws. They have been in a couple weeks and are functioning fine using the supplied remote controls. Each blind has its own remote that only operates that blind. The remote manual says you could program one remote to operate all blinds but one for each is just the way we want it. The light blocking blind keeps our bedroom dark with no noticeable light seepage. The light filtering allows light through without glare. These blinds are great and I would definitely recommend them.

The blind was specifically designed for the skylight model I have but I had to have a Velux pro come to install it (for $125) and he had a difficult time. Then it didn't fit right. It was too long for the skylight (seemed to have one slat too many) and left light gaps at the edges. When trying to shorten the blind he discovered (too late) that it's no longer possible to do that, due to the design so he had to order a new blind. That was 3 weeks ago because he hasn't been back to my area. So I have aluminum foil taped over the skylight to keep out the summer heat. The new blind is due to be installed in another week but he's only HOPING that it will have been manufactured to the exact size needed. I had previously installed (by myself) Velux pleated shades on 2 skylights in my last house, which went up easily and I loved them but they are no longer offered. I'm told the venetian blinds will soon be discontinued, also. I can see why, if their manufacturing tolerances are as lax as on this one. I don't hold out much hope for the replacement to fit correctly, either.

These are great. We are so happy we went with the Velux. They are made specifically for velux skylights, so they fit perfectly. Someone offered to install for $75 per blind, but we decided to do it ourselves. They were easy to install; definitely the right decision.
