Installation of an internal blind

The awning for roof windows is an additional equipment that allows to create perfect darkness, day and night, for naps and summer nights. Thanks to its new refined line, the new range of VELUX blinds integrates discreetly and perfectly matches the frame of the window. It remains only to put the blind.

1. You do not have to be an expert handyman to enjoy a tastefully decorated interior. By rethinking its installation principle, VELUX makes more than ever the installation of its interior blinds within the reach of all. The new slide mounting system makes them easier to put on. Screwing is made easier thanks to TORX® type star screws (adapted screwdriver supplied). And the blinds always benefit from the exclusive Pick & Click installation system: installation with just a few screws and two clicks, thanks to the standard mounting brackets already installed on the VELUX roof window.

2. The roll-out box is installed by fitting it into the fastening lugs already present on the VELUX roof windows. If your roof window does not have one, screw-on brackets are provided in each purchased product. It is important to leave in place the red plastic supports that keep the cords wrapped.
