We treat our skin to reassuring layers of sun lotion when exposed to the elements, but did you know your home reaps benefits from UV protection too? These innovative blinds protect treasured electrical gadgets from the ravages of 95% of UV light’s harmful rays, while preserving the vibrancy and colour of soft furnishings. They also prevent rooms from reaching oppressive temperatures during the summer months, enhancing a cool, calm atmosphere. If you’ve ever struggled and squinted to see your computer screen or watch television under the intense glare of the sun, this is a brilliant solution. This blind is operated with a side chain mechanism. Please note: the width stated is the total width of the blind including mechanisms and brackets. Blackout blinds are ideal for children’s rooms, but you must fit the safety device provided with the blind to the wall in order to tie up the pull cord safely, out of the way of children and pets. For safety we recommend that you move beds, cots and furniture away from any window fitted with a blind that has a side control mechanism, even with a safety device in place. Please ensure you understand the information on our Child Safety Hub before placing your order.
