Roof lanterns open up your ceiling to the sky and maximise light flow making rooms look bigger and brighter. However, heat loss is an issue and incorporating a roof lantern to your extension will result in more heat loss compared with just a flat roof. Roof lantern blinds will help solve this problem and also look better, particularly at night.
Oakhurst Blinds are market leaders in roof blinds for lanterns. Our ‘SMARTZip’ no wire roof lantern blind system is specifically designed to be the best available solution for roof lanterns. SMARTZip delivers sleek aesthetics as well as controlling light and heat so you can get greater use of your living space. Alternatively, we can offer you beautiful looking pleated or pinoleum roof blinds in a large variety of fabrics and colours.
All our roof lantern blinds can be remotely controlled or fully integrated into a smart home automation system offering the ultimate in contemporary living.
This innovative system uses a customised cassette roller blind to prevent sagging with no unsightly wires spoiling the view of the lantern when open.
These blinds can go without wires up to 3m wide x 3.6m long.
Installing a ‘SMARTZip’ roof lantern blind will control heat and light, reduce glare and is ideal for activities such as watching television or for working on a computer. It will also provide essential insulation during those cold snaps in the depths of winter, enabling you to enjoy your room all year round.
Choose pleated or honeycombe fabrics. A cheaper wire free option for a smaller roof lantern is to have the blind fitted to the base of the lantern. We can manufacture and fit honeycombe/duette fabric blinds as a wire free option up to 1.8m wide x 2m long.
Alternatively, you may choose to have pleated or honeycombe/duette blinds fitted to each panel of the glass. This is especially good if you have a traditional roof lantern, in a south facing position where you want to have the flexibility of operating the blinds individually as the sun moves from east to west.
Oakhurst only use Somfy motors in all our blinds. Somfy motors and systems are world leaders in cutting edge technology, providing reliability and inclusive 5 year guarantee.
Remote Control Blinds give great flexibility for both roof blinds and window blinds. These can be operated individually or in groups just from one remote control handset.
Oakhurst use only Somfy motors the acknowledged world leaders in motorised blind technology. Their 5 year guarantee combined with our own free 5 year guarantee ensures you can be fully confident that our products will perform.
We stock a range of blind backing fabrics, each with a different purpose. Thermal coated or Blackout Fabric, for instance, is specifically designed to keep your conservatory cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We also have an extensive range of Honeycombe fabrics that provide superb insulating qualities.
Oakhurst home consultants are among the most experienced in the industry and they will help you to select the product that is right for your conservatory.

Insights into new lantern blinds technology
Boris Johnson’s announcement that our country is effectively on lockdown for the foreseeable future, affects the majority of people in the UK now.
As a family business we are concerned for the welfare of our staff and customers and have studied closely the Covid 19 - government guidelines for business and employees as well as Boris Johnson’s announcement of 23rd March 2020 on the restrictions and how they affect how we trade.
As such, we believe we are allowed to continue to trade as our manufacturing staff and fitters are not able to work from home and so can travel to and from work to our workshop in Amesbury, Wiltshire to manufacture the blinds or install the blinds at the customers home.
As the weather is rapidly improving and we move to the hot summer months, people’s comfort in their home will be a priority and so planning ahead for purchasing bespoke blinds such as ours is imperative at this time of year. Our telephone will be manned by Corinne, for enquiries and to support our customers too. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer services and are endeavouring to support customers to the best of our abilities at this time.
Our staff have been instructed for a while now to maintain the required safe distances between each other and because of the nature of our product have always maintained high hygiene procedures like washing hands regularly and sanitising work areas.
