Remember, window openings are rarely perfectly straight, that’s why it's always important to measure in three places for the width and height. Check our Measure Instructions under Help for more details, our how-to measure video and a downloadable measuring guide.


Measure the inside width of the window in three places: the top, middle, and bottom. 

Inside Mounts: Use the smallest measurement.

Outside Mounts: Use the longest measurement and add 3 - 4 inches for maximum coverage.


Use longest measurement from edge to edge, inside/outside (according to Mount type) of window frame. Outside Mount: add 2-3 inches above window for mount & extra length to bottom to overlap window frame.

Headrail Option
The headrail is what holds together all of the components that operate your blind or shade.

Please select the width of each of your panels.

Left Side

Right Side


Most customers prefer to mount their blinds inside the window frame. It gives a neater, more tailored look, without covering any details of the window or the surrounding decorative moulding. 

Remember, to ensure a perfect fit for inside mount installations, please follow our measuring instructions; do not deduct anything from your measurements as this will be done automatically by production when they make deductions for mounting brackets. There is also no need to take deductions from your outside mount measurements.






Roll Position

REGULAR ROLL – With a standard roll, the fabric rolls closest to the window, coming off the back side of the roller.

REVERSE ROLL – With the reverse roll, the fabric rolls away from the window, coming off the front of the roller.

Choose from our standard 3 Year Limited Warranty, our 5 Year Extended Limited Warranty, or get extra peace of mind with our 10 Year Peace Of Mind B.L.I.N.D.S. (Blinds Lifesaver If Nasty Damage Surfaces) Unlimited Protection Plan. See our Warranty page for all the details.

Designed to block the sun's harmful and sometimes distracting rays, at 5% openness, these shades will block 95% of the light coming in. So your room will stay darker and more private during the day while still giving you a view to the outside. 

With all the ray blocking they do during the day, they will protect your furnishings, decrease the glare, and reduce your energy bill by keeping your house cooler in the summer. 

Now that's something to get excited about!

  • Designed for sun blockage, not privacy

  • Full view to the outside

  • Shade loses privacy at night

  • Cordless option keeps them looking neat and tidy while being safe for children and pets

  • Blocks up to 95% of harmful UV rays

  • Reduces glare for rooms with TVs or computers

Good To Know:

  • To ensure a proper fit for inside mounts, we will deduct approximately 1/8 inch from your width measurements.

  • On outside mounts, make sure to add 2-3" of width to each side to ensure full coverage of window opening and to minimize any light seeping through the sides

  • For solar shades with exposed roll, brackets can be mounted to the top, side, or rear

  • For solar shades with cassette valance, concealed brackets can be mounted to the top or rear only


For perfect fitting blinds, use our foolproof measuring guide.

For Cordless:

Minimum Width: 21.5"

Maximum Width: 84"

Minimum Height: 24"

Maximum Height: 84"

For Battery-powered Motorized Lift:

Minimum Width: 20"

Maximum Width: 96"

Minimum Height: 24"

Maximum Height: 108"

Minimum Inside Mount Depth: 2 1/4", 3 1/4" (with cassette valance)

Minimum Inside Flush Mount Depth: 3"

Headrail Height: 3"

Headrail Depth: 3 1/4"

Please consider: There may be a tiny gap of light around the edges of your blind when mounted inside the window frame. If you prefer to keep sneaky light out, order outside mounted shades.

Happy Hey Blinds shopper

Excellent purchase and I’m very delighted with the blinds! It was quick and simple to install, and the finished product looks fantastic.

Should have ordered more

Marco R. from Fredericton, NB Mar 15, 2023

I'm ecstatic about the 5% solar blinds. The finished product is attractive and of good quality. I only regret not getting the motorized. My bad, I should have purchased samples first to see and feel before ordering.

Well-built products

Quick delivery and simple to install. My new solar shades are now in my garage. I chose the 5% option with the intention of blocking UV rays that would harm the interior of my car. Thank you, Hey Blinds.

Loving my new solars

Gregory L. from Fort Smith, NT Nov 08, 2022

I am not sure how you could ever enjoy a sunny day in my bedroom again without my new solar shades! They are so easy to install, and they make such an impact. Plus? It's almost like having another window installed - who wouldn't want that?!

Easy-to-install shades

Willie B. from Digby, NS Oct 07, 2022

The blinds were so easy to install and they look incredible. We are thrilled with the way they completely block out all of that terrible sun streaming into our living room, making it a much more enjoyable space in which we can spend time relaxing or working on projects!

Great quality and affordable solars

Excited with our orders

Troy D. from Hull, QC Sep 23, 2022

We were so excited to get this shade. It's the best one we've ever owned and it looks even better than expected! The quality is unmatched for its price, too. There isn't another company out there that makes products with similar features at such an affordable rate.

Our home protector

Patrick R. from Moncton, NB Sep 19, 2022

The solar shades are a great way to save money and protect our home from the sun's harmful rays.

Controllable shades

Trey C. from Saint John, MB Jun 18, 2022

Hey Blinds has created a product that blocks out the sun while giving you control of when to enable it. I was really surprised by how much better sunlight is with this solar shade, like having an always on filter in your bedroom!

Surprising solar shades from the best

Lucas G. from Winnipeg, MB Jun 04, 2022

I was really surprised by how much better the sunlight is with this solar shade. It's like having a sun blocker in your kitchen that you can always control all the time. Thank you, Hey Blinds.

Satisfied solar shades owner

Charles B. from Burlington, ON May 24, 2022

I am so happy with my new solar shades! They were the perfect addition to this room, and now it's even more beautiful than before. These are great because they let in natural light while still providing privacy when needed too.

Reliable shades from the best blinds company

Jim M. from Fort Smith, NT May 08, 2022

The solar shades are a great way to cut down glare from windows. I am very happy with mine and won't hesitate to go back for more.

Surprisingly affordable

Odell L. from London, ON Jan 02, 2022

The solar blinds were easy to install and amazing! I have a friend who paid five times more per window for these similar shades, but she says that these just beat them hands down in quality and value for money.

Great buy for my home

Maria B. from Montreal, QC Dec 24, 2021

We're all about using the most stylish solar shades, and these work for a lot. They also look great by my window! Customer service was also excellent with helping us figure out how to make the necessary adjustments.

Instant sun reduction partner

Raymond R. from Lavaltrie, QC Dec 16, 2021

The blinds are perfect for my needs. I wanted something that wouldn't block out all sunlight but still provide privacy and these did just what we needed! They were easy enough to install as well, which is another plus for my purchase.

Impressive but..

Arthur N. from Maple, ON Oct 18, 2021

I was impressed with how quickly I received the shades and samples that came along. They were exactly what we needed to keep our kitchen cool, but also allow us a view of the backyard from indoors. I wished I just picked a different colour as the shades that we have made our room darker..

Loving these new shades..

Sebastian from North Vancouver, BC Sep 28, 2021

Our room has been a lot cooler since we installed these new shades. They were easy to install and fit perfectly on the windows, blocking out the sun while still allowing us to enjoy our view of outside

Best shades.

Shelly L. from SASKATOON, SK Sep 07, 2021

When we moved into our home, the kitchen and family room had large windows. The previous owners left their mini blinds up but they weren't very attractive or functional for us. I ordered blinds from Hey Blinds and they’ve just arrived on time. They are easy to clean and provide light when needed. There was no issue with installation either--my husband put them all up in one evening without any issues at all (and he does not do construction).

Amazing product.

Mikhaylov S. from Smithville, ON Aug 18, 2021

We are thrilled with our purchase of the 5% Solar Shades. We had an issue where one piece was damaged upon arrival, but customer service quickly replaced it for us without any questions! The product is amazing and we're really happy that we decided to invest in this shade because they look great on all windows throughout our home.

Great shades for our view.

Rose D. from Markham, ON Jul 12, 2021

The shades block the bright afternoon sun but we can still admire our lake view. The look is just what we wanted, and the reverse roll looks great without a valence
