Blockout Blinds

Create your ideal environment with blockout or blackout blinds. They are designed to completely control the amount of natural light you require in your room. Ideally suited to media and theatre rooms, blockout or blackout blinds can be controlled manually or by remote control.

Blockout vs Blackout - is there a difference?

Blockout blinds


This term is used to describe fabric that is designed to prevent the transmittance of light. Light can still enter the room via gaps around the blind.

Blackout blinds


This term is used to describe blockout blinds that are fitted with additional side tracks and pelmets in order to prevent almost all light from entering the room. Choose this option to achieve maximum darkness.


What types of blinds can be blockout?

Almost every blind in our range can be fitted with blockout fabric, allowing you to get the exact look you desire.


"I want to congratulate you on the level of professionalism shown by your staff, at all levels in your organisation. Every contact I’ve had with EWF from my first phone call through to the installation of my blinds yesterday has been everything that I would wish for as a client. Thank you."

Judith, Northcote, Vic

FAQs about Blockout Blinds

How do I care for my blinds?

The good news is that care is a relatively easy task. Regular dusting will keep them looking new by using a duster or vacuum. Small marks and stains can be spot cleaned using warm water and a mild detergent and sponged off using a non-abrasive cloth (like microfibre). It is important that you check the suitability of all cleaning products prior to use.

Is this the best light control option?

Our blinds allow plenty of natural sunlight to flow into the room during the day. Then, at night or when you desire daytime privacy, simply lower the blockout blind.
