To choose the right operation of your VELUX blind, you should consider where your roof windows are placed and how often you expect to adjust the position of the blind. Solar and electrically powered blinds are both remote controlled and are the ideal choice for those with out-of-reach VELUX roof windows, or those who wish to add a touch of innovative luxury to their rooms.

Remote controlled and electrically powered

Remote controlled and electrically powered awning blinds are operated with the pre-paired wall switch supplied with your VELUX INTEGRA® blind. An intuitive solution that lets you easily control your blinds remotely. Multiple blinds can be programmed into one wall switch for simultaneous operation. 

If necessary, the blind can also be raised and lowered manually with the control bar at the bottom of the blind. 

Remote controlled and solar powered

Remote controlled and solar powered blackout blinds are operated with the pre-paired wall switch supplied with the blind. 

If necessary, the solar powered blind can also be operated manually. The solar-rechargeable battery holds enough charge for up to 600 operations, even if there is no direct sunlight for recharging.


VELUX awning blinds are made of a weather resistant, 100% polyester net fabric for long lasting performance. The electrically and solar operated awnings have a lacquered aluminium top cover. The cover is beautifully integrated into the window and can hide the awning when not in use. The electrically operated and solar powered awning blinds run in side channels, also made of lacquered aluminium. The manually operated awning blinds do not have side channels and can be hidden within the top cover of the roof window.


All VELUX products are made to exacting standards from the highest quality materials and have been designed for many years of trouble-free use. All VELUX blinds and shutters are backed by a 3-year guarantee. The VELUX guarantee does not in any way affect your statutory rights.
