- A great addition to a great skylight.
August 05, 2012
We purchased this shade to cover the replacement skylight we have recently purchased and installed in our dining room. The old skylight (original to the house) did not actually let in much real light, while the new Velux skylight lets in the sun with all of its glory intact. Unfortunately, too much so in this extreme summer we've been having.
Since this skylight is in a vaulted ceiling, we didn't want to go with the rod-driven system. The shade installed easily, and blocks enough light to keep the room much cooler. The built-in solar battery charger means that the shade has zero wiring required - but don't forget to plug the battery in before hanging the shade. The instructions were in pure pictogram form, except for the comic-book style "Snap! Snap!" labels where appropriate.
The remote control is very simple - three buttons - and unobtrusive. We've mounted it next to our thermostat control. When we activate the remote, the automatic movement of the shade becomes a source of endless fascination for our cats.
Energy Efficient, Functional, Well Made, Good Size & Fit, High Quality, Easy to Install, cat entertainment value
fully open covers more of the light than expected
