Installation of electrically operated blinds
Most VELUX roof windows are fitted with pre-installed brackets to ease installation and help you achieve a perfect fit every time. To install an electrically operated blind, simply snap it into place. Then connect the blind to the power supply and lastly your remote control.
When installing an electrically operated blind in a manually operated roof window, a conversion kit (KUX 100) is required as well. Read more or order one here.
Installation instructions similar to those below will of course be included when you purchase a blind. All other installation instruction PDFs and videos can be found on the installation page here.
