Utopia Blackout Blind Fabric Information

Transmittance is the amount of light and heat transmitted beyond the fabric. The lower the amount, the greater the efficiency. Block/reflect is the amount of heat

and light that is blocked or reflected. The higher the amount, the greater the efficiency. 

Absorption is the amount of heat and light absorbed in the fabric. The higher the amount, the lower the efficiency. 

Ultraviolet protection illustrates how protective the fabric is against ultraviolet rays. The higher the amount, the greater the effectiveness.

Shading Co-efficiency is tested using a single 6mm glass glazing system with and without a blind to obtain solar heat gain measurements. The heat gained with a blind at the window is divided by the solar heat gained without a blind at the window, giving the Shading Co-Efficient. The lower the result the better the performance of the blind at blocking solar heat.

The Direct Fabrics R20B electric roller blind comes with a low voltage battery motor as standard. The white metal brackets have plastic covers, for face or top fixing, on 40mm grooved aluminium barrel. The barrel houses a 7.4v DC motor with electronic limit stops and a slow stop/start feature. The motor is controlled by a remote switch (not supplied) and can be charged by either a mains charger (one supplied per order) or solar panel. The fabric is locked into a groove in the barrel, and it features a white plastic bottom bar as standard. The bottom bar is fabric covered at the front.


There are 2 options for the blinds. Integrates with a standard charger which is included. 1A charge will last approximately 6 months

Or you can use the solar panel that can be connected to the blind so it is constantly charged and ready for use.

Remote Controls

The handheld remote controls are available in 1, 6, or 16 channels depending on how many remotes you wish to use. 

If you are purchasing more than 1 roller blind then select no remote required on all of the blinds except one, then on the last one assign your remote controls to it.

Wall mounted switches are available in 1 or 2 channel options.

Electric Roller Blind

Excellent product
Ordered a custom build electric blackout blind 2.4m in length and expected to wait up to 28 days for this one off, however it was made and delivered in under a week, and my wife loves it, being disabled she loves the fact that she just has to press the button for instant darkness or for instant opening in the morning no more struggles with heavy curtains for her, or having to get me to open up the curtains for her when I get up often hours before she is ready to wake Up.
Hence the rating excellent product easy to install and set up.

How to Measure For Curtains, Blinds and Tracks.

Pen and Paper

For recording your


Someone to assist if your
windows are large .

Metal Tape Measure

As this will allow you to get a
rigid full length measurement.

Make sure your curtain tracks and poles are fitted in the position you want.

Choose the type of curtains that you would like and how you want to hang your curtains. See our heading styles guide

We recommend fitting your hardware first before measuring, this avoids any issues with not getting the perfect fit.


Measure your window using our main guide. Quick summary below. Remember wave, pinch, and designer headings require slightly different measurement

Measure in 3 places and take the shortest drop – Floors and ceilings can run out.

Double / Triple check your measurements

how to measure for curtains

Choosing your Curtain Track Width

The width of the curtain track should extend past your window this allows for the curtains to stack back away from your window and allow light in.

Measure your recess and then add on 15cm on either side. For acoustics , we recommend further to fully cover the window and the surrounding area. In our test we added an additional 30cm to the width and also made the curtain floor length.

Wave curtains, for every 100cm of track the curtains will stack circa *18cm

Eyelet curtains, they will stack back circa 10cm per *70cm of track width

Pencil Pleat will stack approx 25% of the track width. eg. 210cm track will stack 52.5%

* all dependent on thickness of fabric

How to Measure for Blinds going Inside the Recess

How to measure for blinds inside thet recess

  • Measure the exact width of the recess in three places; at the top of the recess, in the centre of the recess and near the bottom - then take the  smallest size.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess in three places on the left hand side of the recess, in the centre of the recess and on the right hand side of the recess - then take the smallest size.
  • We will take one cm off the finished width size you have given us, to allow for the blind to pull up and down easily.
  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the Fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

How to Measure Outside of the Recess

  • Measure the recess in 3 places on the width and also 3 places on the drop. Take the widest measurement.
  • Measure the width of the actual recess plus an additional amount – Usually from 7cm-15cm whatever you think looks appropriate. This is for overlap.
  • Measure the exact drop of the recess. The blind would be fitted above the recess, so check the space above and add an amount on to the drop – usually from 7-15cm
  • These sizes you have taken will be the size of the finished blind.

  • Double check your measurements
  • Cord Safety - Mounting Height - We ask for the mounting height of your blinds to allow for the cord to be 150cm off the ground. If mounting at 210cm This is what you enter in the fitting height box. We make a deduction to ensure the cord is 150cm from the floor. Thus the cord loop will be 60cm

Cubicle Tracks you have to measure with right angles from wall to wall where you want the track to go

Draw your room on a piece of paper with a sky view

Now measure from the wall to wall for straight tracks,

L Shape Tracks Measure to a point on the floor and mark with a piece of tape. Then for the other sides measure from the other wall to that point.

Always check for obstructions and fitting issues you may need to work around
