  • Blackout method and products

    Hi. I’ve just been watching again Susan’s new method for no light pin holes in her blackout blinds which she posted about last week. I found it to be an interesting method.
    Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a wholesaler yet here in the U.K. for these Dofix products? Or are there any similar products already available via current trade suppliers here? Thanks

        I think Dofix are supplied from Germany - I'm not aware of any UK suppliers. I think some of the adhesive products require a professional iron to 'set' them at the right controlled temperature, but I could be wrong.

          Thanks for that Louise. Yes I couldn’t find a supplier. Seems bizarre that there is no U.K. supplier especially as they’re based in Germany.....yet supply the US.
          I recall Susan talking about the dofix iron but then again I thought she said you didn’t necessarily have to have that particular one - I’d need to go back and watch the video again (might of just made that bit up in my head )
          I just found it to be an interesting method that she’s come up with and wanted to trial it out. It’s a non starter here though if the products aren’t available.....oh well.
          Thanks

            It may partly be because adhesive products/methods seem far more popular in the US than here.......they may well work fine with a good domestic iron but just wanted to flag that. I guess it would be quite a commitment for one of the trade suppliers here to start stocking the range of Dofix products and promoting/training them to break into the market.

              Using glue type products seems to be the norm / quite acceptable in the USA. It's a huge country with a big industry but I'm not sure if we want to follow..........not saying more.

                Thank you Louise and Enid - I wasn’t aware that they were big on glue type products out in the US.
