The ideal shutters and block out blinds for shift workers and home theatres

Light filtering into bedrooms during the day is a problem for shift workers or families with small children. Block out blinds are perfect for daytime sleepers, or those who like a long snooze at the weekend! There are also some rooms, such as home theatres, that need to be as dark as possible. Take a look at the solutions from Classic Blinds & Shutters.

Theatre block out blinds
Theatre blinds are the ultimate in light block out. We design a roller blind in a block out fabric and fit it to the face of the window, adding a side and bottom channel.

Roller or roman block out blinds
Roller or roman blinds can also be made in a block out fabric. The face fitting (as opposed to recess fitting) eliminates light leakage from the sides. Pelmets are a great solution for preventing light filtering through the top of the window. Cellular blinds are also available with a block out option.

Plantation shutters
Plantation shutters can let light in around the panels and where the louvres sit in the panel. Naturally, there has to be some space for the louvres to rotate, but our special Eco Frame will help to minimise light leakage. The Eco Frame is available with our aluminium plantation shutters A double handle system also helps to dissipate light from the louvres.

Heat and light study
Classic Blinds & Shutters has run a comparison study across a number of window coverings, analysing the difference between heat and light effectiveness. Dark colours are more effective at absorbing light and deliver darker rooms. Click here to view the study.
