The light brigade

It doesn’t matter if you’re building a house from the foundation up, or undertaking a major renovation, light is a key consideration. From the placing of windows to the position of lighting, you’ll have a clear idea of where you desire illumination and where you don’t.

Sometimes, the place for windows to take best advantage of the sun is out of reach, making light and temperature control difficult. Which is where integral electric rooflight blinds come in…

Control at your fingertips

Flatglass rooflights are a great utilitarian addition to your home, but while they are great for letting light in, they can be hard to cover. When the sun is at its highest, you may want to reduce glare or the heat coming through. By opting for a rooflight with an electric integral blind, the problem is solved.

You can use a remote control to immediately open or shut your blinds – partially or completely – without unnecessary stepladders, dangling cords or poles. Meanwhile, minimal frames help you make the most of the light and keep your sightlines sleek.

The SMART choice

Homes are really feeling the benefit of the internet of things, and Roofglaze SMART enabled electric integral rooflight blinds allow you to control your blinds in most intuitive way imaginable. Link up with your Alexa and you’ll be able to tell your blinds to open and let the sunshine flood in as you stroll into the room. When the sun bursts out, don’t let the glare get on your nerves – simply tell your blinds to close.

As the blinds are situated in a tightly sealed unit, they are dust free, meaning they require no fiddly blind cleaning. Roofglaze are the only company offering fully integral smart blinds of this kind, putting family safety and user friendliness at the heart of your home.
