Conservatories can become very hot in summer and one way to help to keep them cool is to install fully opening roof vents. The vents can be manually or electrically actuated. Pleated roof blinds will provide help with the heat and glare but the blinds must retract when the window vent is open.The actuator, if electric or screw jack, if manual prevents the the blind travelling from top to bottom.
The snappy solution is to make one pleated roof blind in which the top section goes to the top and the bottom section goes to the bottom. The conservatory roof blind can be fully opened or closed across the roof vent window. The roof blind can be retracted both ways and the vent opened to allow hot air to escape.
