How to measure Roof Blinds

Measuring for your roof blind is easy - most of the time you won't even need a tape measure. All you need to do is open up your window, and as you swing it you'll see a small metal patch on the top. This has the brand name of your window and a code. This will differ depending on the make of your window.


There are a number of letters and digits on the Velux plate, but you're only interested in the first six or seven. These are split into two sets. The first of these sets will be three letters long, for example "GGU", and is your "Window Type" code. Next to that code will be another one which is three or four characters long, and will look like "C01" or "PK35". This is the "Size" code. Simply select these codes on our website when you are filling out your order.


On a Fakro plate you will see two numbers divided by a slash or an "x" like this: 78/98 or 78x98. These are the dimensions of your window in centimetres - the first number is the width, and the second number is the height.

Dakstra or Rooflite

Both Dakstra and Rooflite windows have one short code on the sash which is three characters long. It starts and ends with a letter, with a number in between, such as "C2A". When you are purchasing your blind, enter this code when you are prompted to choose your side.
