VELUX and Solstro awning blinds for roof windows keep your room cool in summer but still allow you to maintain the view through your window. This can also help prevent fading of furniture and fabrics by preventing direct sunlight entering the room. If you have a south-facing room awning blinds are worth considering. Awning blinds are made from weather-resistant fabric and can be rolled up out of sight when not in use. VELUX awning blinds are available in manual, solar or electric options. Solstro awning blinds are available in manual operation only. Awning blinds can also be combined with interior blinds for a complete look.
