VELUX anti-heat blinds keep your home cool and comfortable by blocking the heat before it even hits your VELUX roof windows. The transparent mesh lets in light and protects you from the heat without disrupting your view. They're perfect for home offices, living rooms and anywhere you'd like to spend time in cooler temperatures away from glare on sunny days.  This is one of the fastest ways to protect yourself from the heat reliably. The anti-heat blinds are quick and easy to install from the inside.
  • Good heat protection
  • View to the outside

Perfect for glare-free days in your work office or cool afternoons spent in your living room. The mesh is tested for wind, UV- and heat degradation, and provides long-lasting performance.

Select your level of comfort - up to full automation

Control your VELUX anti-heat blind from anywhere in the room with the ready-to-use wall switch. The electrical blinds run in aluminium side rails to ensure they operate smoothly and remain stable.
