LITETITE® is the complete blackout (99%) fabric roller blind − ideal for environments where blackout conditions are sometimes required, for example; chart rooms, control rooms, cinemas, training rooms, laboratories, workshops and accommodation areas onboard marine vessels and ships.

LITETITE® is housed in a protective anodised aluminium cassette complete with inner and outer aluminium side channels that prevent light entering.

Available in a large selection of fabric colours LITETITE® effortlessly turns day into night, ensuring total privacy and giving a warm homely feel. The large selection of fabric colours means it can be perfectly coordinated to your other room decorations.

The aluminium side channels, cassette and bottom rail can also be coordinated to your choice of colour.

Like all Solar Solve products, LITETITE® is designed with our customer in mind to ensure it is easy to install and simple to operate.

With first class custom-made products, fast delivery, quality packaging, spare parts included, excellent after sales service and a 2-year Guarantee you’ll wonder how you ever managed without LITETITE®.

LITETITE® blackout blinds come in two systems, one for inside the recess and the other for outside the recess.  When ordering please state whether you require the Inside or Outside Recess system.
