Electric Blackout Blinds

Kaydee Blinds is a leading supplier of curtains, blinds, and innovative shading solutions

When it comes to creating the right atmosphere for work in an office, school or other educational setting nothing measures up to shades and blinds. The same applies in showrooms, where it’s not only the comfort of the people who work there and visitors that matters, it’s also about showcasing the products in the best possible light. There is a wide range of options available when it comes to commercial blinds.


Electric blackout blinds and shade blinds are a perfect solution in all kinds of settings.


A long history


Blackout blinds first came to public attention in the UK when they played a vital role on the Home Front during World War 2. Blackout blinds and shades helped to block out any light that might make a property more visible to aerial attack. Thankfully, blackout blinds today are used for more peaceful purposes.

Today, blackout blinds are the perfect choice when you need to control light levels in your space. Made to measure blackout blinds come in a range of fabrics and finishes, designed to suit different kinds of commercial spaces. Electric blackout blinds, sometimes known as motorised or automatic blinds, are widely used in all kinds of commercial buildings.

The uses of electric blackout blinds


If your office has large expanses of glass then controlling light levels is vitally important if you’re to ensure that it remains a comfortable place to work. Although modern air conditioning can go some way towards making the space comfortable, high sunlight levels, particularly in the summer can create problems. Computer screens can be difficult to use, and anyone who finds themselves in direct sunlight can find it very distracting.


Office and educational presentations

While blackout roller blinds can play a role in ensuring the right ambient light levels in a general office setting, they really come into their own in any room where presentations are held. This might be where a whiteboard or digital equipment is used to deliver training, or it might be a school, college or other educational setting. As they block out the light completely they create the right context for any presentation.

Blackout blinds can also be made from fabric that makes them noise reducing blinds, which again helps to create the right conditions for presentations. This can be particularly useful if your building is located near a busy road.

The optimum solution for showrooms

Electric blinds are the perfect solution for controlling light levels in car, kitchen and other showroom spaces. Often comprising large expanses of glass to maximise light levels, they can become uncomfortable spaces if the light isn’t controlled. Electric blackout blinds offer an ease of operation that allows showroom staff to quickly adjust light levels to respond to changing conditions.
