Skylight Blinds

Keeping you cool

When roof light and skylight blinds are required, Ark provides an outstanding range of options. Roof lanterns are made up of mainly glass; they’re a fantastic way of giving you much more light into your room. Our motorised lantern blinds work on a double motor and fabric Zip system. These blinds are ideally suited to giving you sun & heat protection in to your room from the large amounts of glass your lantern will have.


Motorised Full Tensioned System

Motorised Full Tensioned System

For glass lanterns of over 3 meters in length the Full Tensioned ZIP System is your perfect option. The FTS has been designed to give excellent sun & heat protection in to your room from the large amounts of glass your lantern will have, it is also perfect for allowing you privacy from any over looking neighbours plus closing out those cold wintery nights. The unique Zip blind has a welded Zip down two sides of the fabric, when the blind is pulled along into the closed position the zips connect into the side channel track system preventing the fabric from sagging. The double motor system works by one motor pulling in the opening or closing position and once the blind has reached your desirered position, the first motor will lock and the second motor will slightly reverse allowing the fabric to be pulled tightly in both directions, leaving you with a trampoline affect taught fabric. The fabric is made up with a mixture of Fibreglass & PVC making it extremely high strength for the tensioning of the blind. Our customer’s most popular choice of fabric is the perforated fabric. Perforated fabric means it has tiny holes throughout the fabric allowing the light to penetrate through but still giving you sun shading and reasonable privacy from the over looking neighbours. The perforated fabric comes in a choice of between 1, 3, 5 or 10% light penetration and colours come in various options including full black out. Our black out fabric is the ideal solution for cinema rooms or where your room has a T.V or projector screen, along with the Zip system and blackout fabric this will give your screen a full anti glare from the sun & daylight. The drop and width range is from as little as 600mm x 600mm to 6.8m x 13m. Every level of shading through to full blackout can be achieved; twin blind systems are available for the ultimate in light control, there is almost no application or type of location for which Ark cannot supply a suitable system. Either manual or electric control is possible, although manual control - via cord or gearbox and crank handle - is not practical in every location. Electric control can be achieved through directly wired controls or radio handset(s).

Motorised CT System

Motorised CT System

Where a roof Lantern is under 3m in length, only a single motor system is required as a single motor is sufficient enough to tension the fabric, it still uses the unique fabric ZIP system along with its big brother the “FT System”. This blind is called our Constant Tension system (CTS). The CTS has been designed to give excellent sun & heat protection in to your room from the large amounts of glass your lantern will have, it is also perfect for allowing you privacy from any over looking neighbours plus closing out those cold wintery nights.
