How do room darkening shutters work?
The room darkening success of our darkening shutters is mainly down to the double insert F-profile window frame which houses all the elements of this integrated system. The frame consists of a front-facing rebate for the shutter panel to sit in, a light block component in the middle, and a channel for a free hanging PURE cell™ Honeycomb blind to sit in at the back. It is the channel element that does all the hard work within this integrated system. This is the part that prevents light going around the blind, maximising light reduction.
The blind is made up of a foiled layer for room darkening success which is covered by a coloured fabric.
The integrated room darkening blind element is clipped into the top of the shutter frame and can be operated using a pull cord. When pulled down, the blind sits neatly in the frame behind the shutters. The blind also acts as a further insulating layer to your windows and serves as an extra barrier to exterior noise too.
