Skylight Shades are a great solution for skylight windows that are allowing in too much light or letting too much light in or if you are getting too much heat or cold through them. They can cut down on your energy bills by blocking the direct sunlight and cold. All of our skylight shades not only block the light and heat/cold, but they are functional as well. Generally they come with a small ring attached to the intermediate bottom rail and you control it by pulling up or down on that ring. For windows that are out of reach we offer extension poles with a hook attached to the end that hooks onto the ring for ease of operation. Different colors and variations can be ordered to meet your specific needs and style.
Function & Installation
Installing skylight shades is not as difficult as one may think. Basically they are just like a standard rectangular shade with a headrail at top. The difference is skylight shades have two additional rails, one is an intermediate rail that's used for lifting and lowering the shade and the other rail is used to attach shade at the bottom (opposite end of main headrail). This is so the shade can be fastened at both ends. The shade is generally pulled taunt in the sky light opening by use of adjustable cables in place of the standard lift cords. Generally, most shades will have two brackets at each end for a total of 4 brackets. Happy hanging!
