Blackout Roller Shades
Insolroll manufactures blackout roller shades for commercial and residential applications. Insolroll® Blackout Window Shades provide both room darkening and ambient light control.
Commercial blackout window shades
The Insolroll® audio-visual blackout shade system is available with our fascia systems, access flap & hanger for custom pockets, or our extruded headbox. Side tracks and sill channels can reduce light leakage.
Blackout shade options are selected on an a la carte basis to get the right amount of light blockage for each application. For many school and conference applications it may be preferable to install shades without tracks to allow some light into room participants to take notes.
Commercial Blackout Window Shades are ideal for:
- Conference rooms
- Video training areas and screening rooms
- Hotel rooms
Residential blackout window shades
Blackout shades are ideal room darkening residential applications. Shades may be used alone, or in conjunction with draperies, roman shades or solar shades.
Residential applications with wall of glass may need an opaque window shade for total natural light and glare control.
Residential Blackout Shades are ideal for:
- Home Theaters
- Home Office
- Any area requiring total privacy
