Original blackout blind kit with VELCRO® Brand hook fastener for very large windows

Original blackout blind kit with VELCRO® Brand hook fastener for very large windows £ 48.95 In stock

This is the first blackout blind kit we ever sold, back in 2002, and it is still going strong.  You can easily achieve complete darkness by ensuring that there are no gaps around the window where light can enter.  This blackout blind attaches directly to the window frame and sits behind any existing curtains or blinds.  This means there is no need to remove or change anything already in place.

Our unique design incorporates excess fabric on each of the four edges - this stops light from entering around the blackout blind.

There is no sewing involved, no drills, screws or frames, and no other fittings are required.

Please note that this is not easyblackout - with these 'original' kits you apply self-adhesive tapes to the fabric AND to the window frame.  If you prefer easyblackout, which attaches directly, you can find it here.

how it works

Measure the window, including all of the frame, and cut the blackout material to this shape and size, adding approximately 4cm to the height and to the width - this gives a small overlap on each of the four edges of the blackout blind, and gives a better degree of blackout.

Apply the self-adhesive VELCRO® Brand hook fastener tape around the window frame, along the wall edge (ie away from the glass edge).

Attach the self-adhesive Fabric tape around the edge of the blackout material.

Press your easyblind™ in to place against the window frame whenever you need blackout.

    instructions

 

Specification:

  1. Premium 3-coated blackout material. This blackout material has undergone rigorous testing to meet high demands of performance and aesthetic appeal.
  2. The adhesive on our VELCRO® Brand hook fastener tape is suitable for use with uPVC windows and is durable for frequent use.
  3. Please note that this adhesive, although not permanent, is quite strong and could pull paint or varnish away from wooden window frames, particularly where the finish is not sound.  For use on wooden window frames, we recommend using Frame Fasteners - these are available on our Accessories page.

Width and drop:

Please note that either side can be used as the width or drop, ie every kit can be used horizontally or vertically

Difference between 'easyblackout' and 'original' blackout kits?

With both types, you stick the hook fastener tape around the window frame. With the 'original' blackout kit, you also stick loop fastener tape to the blackout material, but with easyblackout there is no need to do this as this material will attach directly to the hook fastener tape on the window frame.  This original type is a lighter material and more compact if rolled or folded between uses. In terms of blackout they are the same.  Both can be used with our magnetic tiebacks.

VELCRO® is a registered trademark of Velcro Industries B.V.

'seconds' kits

From time to time, we have some original blackout material that isn't quite perfect in appearance - it is perfectly usable, but may have some small marks so we can't sell it as 'first' stock.  We think it would be a shame to throw it away so we offer these kits at a discounted price.  It is a bargain really, because when your blackout is up, you can't see it anyway!

Only the fabric is different in seconds kits - all other included components are the same as 'first' kits.  The only difference is that there may be some small marks on the fabric (and these are often on the reverse).

All of our seconds blackout blinds and fabrics are listed on the Bargains page - availability can change daily, and these tend to be very popular, so it is worth checking regularly if there is a particular size and colour you are looking for.

I bought the Original blackout kit, in hindsight I should have bought the Easy blackout kit, as fitting two lengths of velcro on a large blind and window frame was a faff. However, I cannot fault the product. It feels good quality and now that it is installed not a shard of light is coming through. When I made contact on two occasions, one by telephone and once by email, staff were responsive and attentive. Samples were sent when requested, which helped me to make my decision. I would recommend this product and company to friends and family.

Very good option and easy to fix

An ingenious and effective solution, well made and simple to use. I cannot give this product any other score than excellent! My order was handled quickly and efficiently would recommend without hesitation.

Does exactly what it says on the tin.... Easy to fit and complete blackout! At £35 my pack 3 seemed a bit on the expensive side for what you actually get but at the end of the day we would happily pay £35 for our little ones to get to sleep (and stay asleep) every night so I've got no quibble about the price. Delivery was in super quick time too and it doesn't look unsightly in the girls bedroom.
