Are Perfect Fit Blinds Blackout?
A range of Perfect Fit Blinds are available with a blackout option, these include Perfect Fit Blackout Roller Blinds and Perfect Fit Blackout Pleated Blinds. Both blind types use the Perfect Fit system and are fitted with blackout material.

Blackout blinds are also a popular choice for nurseries or children’s bedrooms. It is important to remember that whilst the fabrics from these two ranges are blackout, light can leak into the room between the fabric edge and Perfect Fit frame. The light leakage is minimal, nonetheless it is an important consideration if 100% blackout is desired.
What Windows Do Perfect Fit Blinds Fit?
Not all windows are suitable for Perfect Fit Blinds. It is important to check the suitability of your window before ordering this blind type. Perfect Fit Blinds have been designed to be installed on PVC window frames, which also includes doors. Wooden window frames and aluminium window frames are not suitable for Perfect Fit Blinds. The bead depth is generally too shallow, and it is not normally possible to install the Perfect Fit bracket on these two types of window frame. Should you have a wooden or metal window frame then an alternative blind type should be selected.
If your window or door is manufactured from PVC, there are still additional checks required to ensure your windows are compatible. This includes checking the bead depth is appropriate for the bracket sizes available to order, and the window has a suitable clearance between the edge of the bead and any obstruction. Often vents or handles may cause installation concerns, but these can generally be avoided with adjusted measurements or with the help of a handle packer or frame cut out.
