Shading Specialists offer a full range of dimout and blackout blinds. Dimout blinds are installed with a headbox fixed into the side channels, meaning the fabric of the blind covers the entire length of the windows recess. When paired with a dense, blackout fabric, they can block light completely. For further information, why not look at our technical PDFs for how our systems look and operate:


Blackout Range

Silent-gliss dimout
Silent Gliss Blinds

We stock multiple Silent Gliss systems because they are technically advanced, chain-operated dimout blind systems. Their click-in side profile design allows easy installation and can fit them inside or outside the windows recess. The silent gliss manual range contains 4710, 4730, and 4740 that are similar in style and operation but have different weight limits that will determine our recommendation for the project.

Shy Shading Manual Systems

We liaise with commercial blind specialists, Shy Shading, to provide our customers with premium dimout blinds. The SHY ZIP® Screen range is an effective dimout system as the fabric is retained in the ZIP® channels, allowing the blinds to glide through the channel, making it possible to install long and narrow blinds.

Lutron Electrical Systems

For electrical systems, we recommend Lutron intelligent shading systems. The motors are housed within the shade’s assembly, which controls movement, position and adjustment of the blind to meet your preference. We offer Lutron 100, 150, 225 and 64 systems because of the pinpoint accuracy and silent operation.

Silent Gliss Systems

The Silent Gliss electric systems feature an integrated radio receiver, so the blind operation control through a remote. Additionally, you can use an app to lower or raise the shades, which offers a sense of luxury by allowing you to operate the blinds even when away from home.
