What size roof window blinds do I need?

Are you thinking about purchasing a blind for your roof window? If the window is a new purchase, speak to the team that is selling you the window and they will be able to advise you on your best options. But what if you are ordering online when the team isn’t available? Or what if you are buying for a window that already exists in your property? Where do you start? There are a few questions you will need to ask yourself to help you buy the right product, but the most important question to answer correctly is ‘What size roof window blinds do I need?’.

Today’s roof window blinds offer style, as well as functionality. There are a whole variety of different types of roof window blinds which offer design features you may or may not have considered. Have you, for example, thought about the fact that your roof window blind could keep your home warmer by up to 26%?! Energy efficient properties is just one of many features available to you when purchasing your roof window blind.

What size roof window blinds do I need for my VELUX window?

One of the most recognised and popular roof window brands in the UK is VELUX.  VELUX roof window blinds offer all the style and features you would expect from this leading household name.

Choosing the correct size roof window blind for your VELUX window is really straightforward too.

Identify the VELUX code for your roof window

Every type and size of VELUX roof window has a corresponding code which identifies the product.

To find this code:

  1. Open the window
  2. Locate a small plate on the top edge of the window (on older models, this plate may be on the bottom of the window itself or on the sides or on the surround)
  3. The code will consist of letters and numbers. The second section of the code is the part which indicates the size of the window (e.g. VELUX code GGL CK02 2070 – the reference for size is CK02. For VELUX code GGL MK06 206621U, the reference for size is MK06)

The video below will help you locate the data plate for your VELUX window:

This code is all you will need to be able to choose the right VELUX roof window blind.

Filter your options from the menu on the left hand side of our site, speak to your contractor or call our helpline with the information and you will ensure that you get the right sized blind for your window.

Finding the right sized roof window blinds for other makes of window

RoofLite, Fakro and other types of roof window blinds are available. Size is again the key to finding the right product. The majority of brands will have an identification plate similar to that of VELUX above. This plate, like the VELUX windows, will identify the type and size of the product.

For any queries or if you are at all unsure about the make / model / size of your window, contact our helpline on 01792 692 760.
