The VELUX awning blind is an external blind perfectly suited to stop strong sunlight and heat even before it hits the pane on your roof window. While not in use, the awning blind rolls up out of sight under its casing. When extended to the base of the sash, the semi-transparent fabric cuts out the direct rays of the sun, still allowing full visibility to the outside, and reduces the heat of the sun by 76%. The blind can be positioned anywhere in the window and can also be used with the window open. Manual with hooks can only be rolled fully up or fully down.

Operations and colours
Manual with hooks
To roll down an awning blind with hooks, open the window and rotate it 180deg. Then fix the blind to the two hooks on the outside of the bottom sash. The blind can be installed from the inside and you can of course open and close the window even when the blinds are down
Electrically operated blinds are recommended for VELUX INTEGRA® electrically operated roof windows. The blind is operated via a remote control or wall switch that makes it an ideal solution for blinds that are out of reach. Control your blind from anywhere in your room for that extra level of comfort.
Solar powered blinds are perfect for manual and solar INTEGRA® roof windows that are out of reach. The blind comes with a wall switch operated by a standard battery that is recharged by solar power which is good for up to 600 operations even if there is no sun for recharging. The blind is easy to install as no wiring is needed. Manual operation is also possible.
