Blackout Shades, Room-Darkening Shades & Audio-Visual Shades

For windows where blocking light and/or a fully opaque privacy level is needed.

Insolroll Blackout shadesBlackout Opacity Level for Light-blocking

Blackout fabrics do not allow light to pass through at all, and therefore are the definitive solution for spaces where light is not wanted, such as the bedrooms of daytime sleepers or media-viewing rooms and home theaters. While the fabric itself will not admit light, the edges and bottom of the shade will. For some applications, this is enough room-darkening, but for other applications requiring even more light-blocking, additional hardware and accessory options may be desired.

Insolroll Blackout shadesBlackout Opacity Level for Privacy

A blackout opacity level serves a second purpose, in that not even shadows can be seen on the other side of the fabric. While translucent opacity fabrics provide direct visual privacy with zero view-through, they do allow light to pass through, making shadows visible on the other side of the fabric. For nighttime privacy without visible shadows, opaque blackout fabric is the answer.
