A solid black colour, the Bosa Reflect Onyx Blackout Roller blind is a dramatic addition to a room, capable of casting it into total darkness. Another notable feature is the reverse of the Reflect fabric range. This white coloured fabric on the back reflects sunlight and UV rays, preventing them from entering your room. The white back fabric also ensures a uniformed look from outside, despite what colour is shown within your home. It is fire retardant, odourless and PVC free, making it ideal for any home and application.

Electric Roller Blind Technical Specifications
Our roller blinds are made to the highest standards. They are made using an aluminium barrel and the fabric is locked into the barrel, holding it securely in place. Depending on the size of the blind and the weight of the fabric, our barrels can have a diameter of 32mm, 40mm or 45mm, which we select automatically when processing your order at no additional cost.
The bottom bar is covered with the fabric of the blind to muffle any sound it may make against objects on the window.
The brackets are white metal and can be used to face fix, top fix or side fixed and they come with white plastic brackets covers too. As standard the fabric of our roller blinds is back rolled, meaning it rolls off the back of the barrel, closest to the window.
There is a chance on a wider width roller blind that it may have a join in the fabric running horizontally near the top of the blind. For wide blackout blinds particularly
Accessories & Extras

Thinking of purchasing the solar panel to keep your battery-operated electric blind topped up? You’re in the right place – here’s what you need to know!
First things first, every battery-operated blind order comes with a charger (one per order regardless of the number of electric blinds), and this is standard regardless of whether you have a solar panel or not. This means you always have a back up and you can give your blind a full charge at any point, should you feel it needs it.
The solar panel provides a tickle charge for the battery. This is particularly useful for tall installations where it might not be easy to reach the top of the blind with the charging cable to charge up every four-or-so months.
The solar panel doesn’t need to be ordered at the same time as the blind, it can be purchased afterwards and will simply plug into the motor – it doesn’t come pre-fitted to the blind.
So, what are the other benefits of a solar panel charger for your battery-operated blind? To start with, this is the greenest way to enjoy an electric blind, with the power for the blind coming from the sun.
This also means that your electric blind plays no part in your electricity bill, which helps save you money in the long run. It helps to keep your blind charged when plugging it into a charging cable is too difficult, and it’s one less thing for you to remember to charge up.

How to Measure
Now, you can’t mess this one up. It’s what we call ‘easy’ here at DotcomBlinds. But just in case you need some help, follow this quick guide.
First thing's first, identify whether your blind is going inside or outside of a recess.
Inside the recess
A recess fit blind means you supply us with the width and drop of your recess – from top to bottom and wall to wall. We make deductions to account for the brackets to ensure your blind fits within the recess perfectly.
To measure a roller blind to fit inside the recess of your standard window, simply measure the full width and the height of the recess. Then input those measurements into the product page with your order selecting the ‘recess’ option. We’ll do the rest, leaving you the well-deserved excuse to put your feet up, you worked hard for it after all!
Don’t be tempted to deduct any measurements, we do this for you. Make sure you use a metal tape measure; a cloth one can stretch and give you more millimetres per centimetre than a pound-shop ruler. Also, take your measurements in three places and give us the smallest (if there is a smallest). You will find that some recesses shift and settle over time.
Outside the recess
A blind going outside of a recess is usually called an exact fit blind. An exact fit blind means we won’t make any deductions to the width or drop measurements. Exact fit is the bracket to bracket measurement and is commonly found installed outside of a recess. The size you give us is the size your blind is made to.
If you want your blind to hang outside the recess, measure the height and width but be sure to add some overlap to reduce light leakage. This overlap should be about 70mm at the top and bottom and 50mm each side, ensuring you suffer no dazzling strips of sunlight once your blind is happily installed. Please select the ‘exact’ size option when ordering.
Moisture resistant blinds are ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there may be a lot of moisture present. Our Moisture Resistant material is rot-proof and Biosafe®. This is because it will not absorb and retain any water under normal circumstances, which is key to preventing the build-up of bacteria or mold in these warm, damp spaces.
We offer a range of moisture resistant blinds – including bathroom blinds, kitchen blinds, and roller blinds. With our measuring guides and unparalleled customer service, you can ensure your blinds are perfect for the room they are used in.
These blinds are super easy to clean and perfect for busy households; simply wipe over with a dry cloth to remove dust and any debris or use a damp cloth to remove stains. Ideal for homes with kids or areas close to food preparation (including use around the kitchen sink). Please consider the type of fabric best suited to the situation, for example, PVC fabric blind may be a better choice is you plan to clean your blind more vigorously. If you’re unsure of the type of fabric you will need, please feel free to order as many free samples as you need.
Fire retardancy is a worthy feature to look out for with a window blind. A fire-retardant blind provides peace of mind, knowing that you have a product in place that will protect your loved ones. It is a high quality and safe alternative in case somebody leaves a candle on the windowsill, or you install a blind close to your hob in the kitchen. This material will only smolder if presented with a flame, and once the source of heat has been removed, it is designed to self-extinguish.
This can be added to your fabric by selecting this add-on at the checkout.
If you are unsure about whether the type of blind you are interested in is fire retardant, please speak to our customer service team.
Just what you need when you retreat indoors on a scorching summer’s day. Our solar reflective fabric has a special backing that bounces back the sun’s rays. This reduces heat and glare building up in a room beyond the abilities of a regular blind, ideal for rooms exposed to a lot of sunlight, giving you an element of solar control. Please note that the backs of these fabrics will appear different to the front of the blind due to the solar reflective properties.
Our plain fabric blinds and curtains provide you with the incredible diversity that comes with a single colour. Easy to match to a room and available in a huge choice, these fabrics are a fantastic way to bring some life and colour to your windows. Be sure to order your free fabric samples to get a feel for the fabric in person and to see all the great features these fabrics have to offer.
The Fabric Fronted Blackout Blind collection provides you with the light-blocking properties expected from a blackout blind, but with the vibrancy of the colours and patterns you’d expect to find on fabric blinds. The fabric is backed with an additional light blocking material making it impossible for exterior light to penetrate the fabric, casting your room into total darkness.
