When ordering skylight blinds to fit Roto windows you need to know your Roto window size code. This guide describes how you go about finding the code and what to do if you cannot find your Roto window size code.

Step 1: Finding the Roto window ID plate.

Start by opening the Roto window and looking along the edges of the window for a metal plate or sticker.

Step 3: What to do if you cannot find your Roto window size code.

You may find that the Roto Identification plate/sticker is not on the window or the information on the ID plate is worn or faded. If this is the case you will need to find out the window size by measuring the visible glass size of the window inside the window frame in centimetres (cm).

Please use the table below to match your visible glass size to find the correct size code for you window:

How to find your VELUX window size code

When ordering skylight blinds to fit VELUX windows you need to know your VELUX window size code. This guide describes how you go about finding the code and what to do if you cannot find your VELUX window size code.

 

Step 1: Finding the VELUX window ID plate.

Start by opening the VELUX window and looking along the edges of the window for a metal plate or sticker as shown in the image below:

VELUX window size code identification

VELUX window size code identification plate examples and locations.

 

Step 2: Finding the VELUX window size code.

There are two parts to the VELUX window code, the window type and the window size. The window type, usually three letters like GGL,GHL,GZL,GGU and so on is not relevant for purchasing blinds for VELUX windows, you don’t need it.

The important part of the code is the window size code, this can be up to 4 characters depending on which year the window was made. For example, windows made pre 1992 have just one or two characters whereas windows made post 2014 have four characters. The image above shows examples of VELUX window identification plates for all years including each type of window size code.

 

Step 3: Order your Blinds

As long as you can find the VELUX size code you can go ahead and order blinds for your VELUX windows. All our blinds come with quality thermal blackout fabric, solid metal fixings, child safety certification and 3 years warranty as standard. The skylight blinds are extremely easy to fit, check out our fitting instructions video.

Step 4: (Optional) What to do if you cannot find your VELUX window size code.

You may find that the VELUX Identification plate/sticker is not on the window or the information on the ID plate is worn or faded. If this is the case you will need to find out the window size by measuring the visible glass size of the window inside the window frame in millimetres (mm).

Once you have taken the measurements you can compare them to our handy sizing table below to find out your VELUX window size code. This table includes glass size measurements for every VELUX window ever made so if you cannot find your size code here, your window is not manufactured by VELUX. Please either check out our identification guides for other skylight window manufacturers or contact us and we’ll help you identify your window.

Saving Energy With Blinds https://cheapestblinds.com/design-ideas/saving-energy-with-blinds/ https://cheapestblinds.com/design-ideas/saving-energy-with-blinds/#comments Sat, 13 Feb 2016 00:01:56 +0000 https://cheapestblinds.com/?p=21938 Saving Energy With Blinds

saving-energy-with-blindsWindows are a one of the largest causes of heat loss in your home, most properties these days have double glazed windows which help but if you own an older property, you may not and not have the money to install them, it can become expensive. A good alternative is to install blinds in your home. The best kind of blinds and curtains for energy saving are blinds with thermal qualities, these use a protective coating that reduce heat in sunny weather and keeps the heat in during the Winter months.

That being said, pretty much any blind you install will save energy to an extent and can help save money on electricity and heating costs.

 

Type of Blinds

There are two different kinds of blinds available: interior and exterior. Interior blinds go on the insides of windows. Exterior blinds go on the outsides of windows. Both are an excellent way to save energy in your home, however please be aware that Exterior blinds cost considerably more than interior blinds and usually require a qualified professional to install them. Interior blinds on the other hand can be fitted by anyone with basic DIY skills.

 

Materials Used in Blinds

Use whichever material you can afford and to suit your taste but consider the amount of sun exposure, and the amount of insulation desired. The below table may help you:

Material

Benefits

Fabric Roller Blinds

Skylight Blinds

Roman Blinds

Provides good insulation in colder weather & good temperature control in the summer.
Attractive
Wooden Blinds

Blocks light effectively
Can provide good insulation
Aluminium Blinds
Effective for keeping rooms cool in hot weather
Blocks light very well

 

Using Blinds To Save Energy Costs

Different types of blinds save energy in different ways. Some have better insulation properties than others whilst others are better for the controlling light and heat entering the room.

 

Controlling Light

Any type of blinds can control the light coming into a room. Natural light saves money on lighting and electricity costs yet allow home owners to retain their privacy in the evening.

 

Controlling Temperature

Ever stood in a greenhouse in the summer and thought to yourself how hot it is? To a lesser extent, this is what happens in our homes through our windows. Similar to how a magnify glass works, light shines through glass and it creates heat. Controlling the amount of light and heat entering the room therefore controls the temperature.

 

Keeping The Warmth In

As you would imagine different types of blinds are better at keeping the warmth in than others. Aluminium blinds for example provide very little insulation. However, wood and fabric blinds provide much more insulation and are well worth the investment if keeping the heat in is important to you.

 

Conculsion

Regardless of the type of blinds you choose, using them effectively can also go a long way in saving energy and reducing energy bills. Consider what is more important to you, aesthetics or saving energy. Your budget is also going to play a big part in your decision making but remember that whatever you put up at the windows is better than nothing…

Skylight Blinds https://cheapestblinds.com/design-ideas/skylight-blinds/ https://cheapestblinds.com/design-ideas/skylight-blinds/#comments Fri, 22 Jan 2016 15:27:41 +0000 https://cheapestblinds.com/?p=21377  

Skylight Blinds

A while back, it was thought that skylights were only a preserve of the rich. However, this is not the case. Anyone who wants to flood their home with natural light can install skylights quite inexpensively. They can prove especially useful during the winter months when there is very little natural light.

 

Aesthetics and Skylights

white-blackout-roof-blindsAesthetics is one of the most commonly ignored aspects when installing skylights. It is important to remember that one of the main reasons for skylights is aesthetics. This includes both the inside and the outside of the house.

A skylight should typically be installed facing away from the street. In this way, it is still able to bring in light while at the same time not altering the image of the house.
When installing a skylight, the windows and doors should be integrated into the entire design. This will usually entail trying as much as possible to have some coordination between the skylight blinds and the windows and doors.

The Problem with Skylights

too much light in the morningOne of the main problems faced while installing skylights is light control, particularly during the summer. Sometimes, the sunlight can be too much and this makes it uncomfortable to live in such a room. It may be OK to avoid a bedroom until the evening. However, this may not always be possible, if the skylight is in the kitchen for instance. Many people also find that they are waking up earlier than usual due to bright light shining on them first thing in the morning.

Furthermore, ultraviolet light from the sun usually has a bleaching effect and may cause the appearance of a bleached spot on the floor. This means that the type of flooring material needs to be carefully considered.

 

The Solution: Skylight Blinds

Skylight Blinds by Cheapest Blinds UK

Skylight Blinds are the most effective way to control glare from sunlight. As a result, the room can be used at any time of the day. Some skylight blinds are made of blackout material, which also helps to block harmful UV. In essence, they act as a sunscreen. Another common problem with skylights is temperature control. During winter, the skylight can make the room extra chilly. Consequently, this can have the effect of raising the energy bill. In summer, the reverse is true.

This is where a skylight blind comes into play. Look for blinds with thermal fabric, these type of blinds will keep your room cooler in the Summer and warmer in the Winter. The other common technique for controlling heating is the orientation of the skylight. A South facing skylight will bring in more heat than a North-facing skylight on sloping roofs.

Skylights and skylight blinds can either be operated manually or motorised. If the home has a very high ceiling, using a manually operated blind may not be very effective. If the skylight is not too far out of reach you may have the option of using an operating pole for your skylight windows and blinds. Alternatively, a motorised skylight blind is not very expensive and is quite easy to install.

 

Which Skylight Blind do I need?

There are many skylight window manufacturers these days and each manufacturer has a variety of designs and sizes to suit customer needs. The first thing to establish is which manufacturer your skylight window is made by.
There will either be some branding on the external of the window or if you open the window, along one of the edges you will usually find an information plate which states the manufacturer’s name, serial number and window sizing information.

The information you need is the manufacturer and the window size code.

Colour choices we surround ourselves with, directly and indirectly affect the way we think, they also influence how we respond physically and psychologically to what we see. One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a colour is the ongoing impact it will have on your emotions and thought processes.
