We are so proud to be the innovative company who have developed and manufacture the LanternLITETM roof blindsystem. Roof lantern blinds are not a new concept by any means. You can go to a handful of specialist and expensive companies who will come round to your house and measure and fit for you similar products. But we have recognised that this solution is not for everyone and some people like to be in control of their installation and their budget! DIY LanternLITETM blinds offer you a hard working, robust product which looks professional whilst saving you thousands of pounds by cutting out the middle man and ordering directly from the factory.
Probably. Our blinds are bespoke to your measurements. Our minimum size is about 50cmx 50cm and our maximum size is 3m wide x 6m long. So if your lantern window is within these sizes I am sure we have a solution for you.
Well that depends. Our blinds are ideal for keen and confident DIY’ers who enjoy and are happy to get stuck into a 2-3 hour project over the weekend. Or if you are in the middle of a house build or extension our DIY roof blinds are also for you as you can get your builders or joiners to fit the blind whilst onsite. For going down the DIY route you save hundreds of pounds, get your blind quickly and without fuss and stay connected with your product and the factory. You are totally in control of the blinds specification and you benefit from our advice and knowledge from the get go.
If however you would like a full measure and fit service then we are not for you. We keep our prices low as we cut out the middle man but we realise that DIY isn’t for everyone so we would say that our DIY roof blinds are not for you. The good news is though that there are lots of companies out there that do measure and fit for roof lantern blinds. Roof lantern blinds are so popular at the moment so you will definitely find a company who can come and measure and fit for you. They will of course be more expensive but for that you will have the peace of mind that your blinds have been measured and fitted by someone else
This is very rare but can happen. We do try to avoid this by asking you to measure the width in 3 places and the length in 3 places along the recess. This tends to show up any mis measures. But if a mismeasure does happen we will collect your blind from you and try to resolve the issue the cheapest way possible for you. We will just charge you cost price to fix the problem.
The factory is open 9-5 Monday to Friday. We are available for phone calls and technical advice during this time. If we can’t fix your blind over the phone with you we will organise the blind to be collected from you and we will fix it back at the factory.
Yes we are. Our fabrics are fully tested and they are thermal. Full details are downloadable below. Check out our reviews and testimonials to hear what our customers say about the thermal nature of our blinds
No not at all. But they are certainly in our opinion the most versatile solution. At a cheaper price you could go for window film. Window film is a permanent tint for your roof window that is there the whole time. We are not sure of the benefits of it thermally but it can certainly reduce glare and is good for privacy. There are also permanent “sails” that look like ships sails that are screwed into the sides of the roof space. Again these sails are fixed and can look a little messy in our opinion. We genuinely believe that roof lantern blinds are the best and most versatile solution for roof lantern windows. You can open and shut the blind at the click of a button. You can even control them with Alexa if you choose that option.
The Zip LanternLITE™ blind is a motorised product.
