Our commitment to delivering shading solutions is evident in our selection of skylight and roof window blinds, tailor-made to stand up against the unpredictable British climate. Our range is crafted with premium quality materials, these blinds are built to withstand wind and rain, promising enduring reliability and consistent performance under all British weather conditions.

Each blind boasts a sophisticated, fully enclosed cassette casing that not only ensures the fabric is safe and shielded from the elements but also enhances the overall look with its sleek and neat design.

To guarantee resilience against outdoor conditions, we use corrosion-resistant, extruded aluminium for all hardware parts of our blinds, which are presented in an elegant anthracite grey as a standard finish. Particularly important when mounted on a roof for use with skylights.

Our skylight and roof window blinds come with a superior tensioning system that maintains the fabric’s tension across all positions, offering you precise management of light and temperature within your space. Moreover, these blinds incorporate our exclusive zip lock technology, ensuring the blind remains wind-resistant.

For extensive areas or significant sections of roof windows or skylights, we provide the flexibility to interconnect multiple blinds using a twin guide system. This feature allows for the independent operation of each blind, affording you total control over sunlight filtration and shading preferences.


Our Skylight and roof window blinds come with the added luxury of remote or app control, making them a perfect match for modern outdoor living spaces. These external blinds are equipped with cutting-edge motors, controls, and sensors supplied by Somfy, a renowned leader in the industry, guaranteeing durability, dependability, and seamless functionality over the years.

For an upgraded experience, we suggest incorporating weather and sun sensors. These sensors smartly modify the blinds in response to changing weather conditions, pulling them back in strong winds to prevent damage, or adjusting them according to the levels of sunlight. Especially helpful when you’re not home as the blinds will automatically move into a position to prevent excessive heating of your home.

Adding weather sensors brings an additional level of convenience and flexibility, allowing the blinds to perfectly align with your individual preferences and lifestyle needs.

With each external blind is a robust, hidden tubular motor nested within the roller tube, where the fabric is discreetly stored, maintaining the aesthetic appeal and keeping a tidy finish of your outdoor area. This system allows for effortless control via remote, wall switch, or a smartphone app. You can even link the blinds to your home’s smart hub. The app’s scheduling feature enables the blinds to automatically adjust at designated times for your convenience.

To ensure longevity, the motor is designed with overload protection to safeguard against damage from excessive use, such as unintended continuous operation. The motor also boasts Somfy’s latest bi-directional (io) technology and obstacle detection, enhancing the safety of your blinds.

External Shading For Skylights and Flat Rooflights - Made In Britain

Flat fixed and opening skylights and roof lights are a common feature of many single storey home extensions, creating an open and airy space beneath, with a feeling of increased height and of course flooding the space with lots of natural light. However, these popular home features emit too much heat and light, making often the open plan cooking, dining and living space beneath both thermally and visually uncomfortable.

Mounted outside the glass, to the glazing framework so they are unseen when not in use, external roof blinds prevent excessive solar heat gain and glare, by stopping the suns solar radiation even reaching the glazing and diffusing incoming light to eliminate glare, subsequently creating a cool and comfortable indoor space.

Depending on whether the property is overlooked, a blockout fabric can be selected that offers the best heat control whilst also providing privacy from overlooking buildings or alternatively a dimout material will allow a view through from inside to out when the blind is extended keeping that open, airy feeling roof glazing brings. And with a minimum 95% UV block, fixtures and furnishings are prevented from bleaching by the sun.

A concealed tensioning system contained in the side guides keeps the fabric under optimum tension at every position so the blinds can be adjusted to any desired position and also offers the flexibility to have either the blind mounted at the top or bottom of the skylight, opening up or down the glass depending on each sites specific needs

It is highly recommended to automate roof blinds, linking them in with sun sensors so they automatically position themselves to ensure even when you are not home, they are preventing excessive solar heat gain, so when you return home, your property is at the perfect temperature.

Skylight & Rooflight Blind Reviews

You exceeded our expectations!

We are delighted with the external blind. Your team was efficient, friendly and courteous. The blind looks great and has, already, made a huge difference to how we use our south-facing lounge. After a somewhat hesitant start, we have arrived at a really satisfactory outcome. Thank you very much. You exceeded our expectations!

Phil - Worcester

Very efficient and tidy

The install team were lovely again, very efficient and tidy. Thank you and the team so much….one very happy customer ready for the sunny and hot day.

The service was excellent

We are really happy with the blind and the service was excellent from quote to fitting. I would definitely recommend you.

Holmes - Twickenham

Very impressive

Initial reaction is that the process and product have both been excellent. The fitters were very good, as were you… so far very impressive, and I would be happy to recommend you.

Wilkinson - East Molesey

An absolute pleasure

I just wanted to say that your service men were an absolute pleasure to deal with today! They are excellent ambassadors for Caribbean Blinds.

Reilly - Twickenham

The blind is incredible

I thought I would wait a little while to see how the blind was functioning before I contacted you again but I would just like to say the external roof blind has transformed the way we use our room. The space would have been virtually unusable over this summer but the heat reduction on using the blind is incredible. I am now thinking of other areas in the house that would benefit from external shading.

Robinson - Walton On Thames

The two fitters were fantastic

We are extremely pleased with both the blinds and the service. The two fitters were fantastic and we cannot wait for our awning now!

Taylor - Teddington

Really happy with the blind, functions perfectly and the installers were great.

Rayner - St. Neots

Fantastic job

The team were very professional, did a great job and the product is lovely, really good quality. The best thing is that it looks like it has always been there, which helps fussy self-builders like us!

Fantastic job, thank you.
