The strongest manual control blind from the YewdaleDefiant® range. The R54 is designed to cope, and built to last. The fabric is located in the groove in such a way that, although it cannot be pulled out, it may be slid out sideways for easy repair or replacement of the blind cover. The removable crank means that the blind cannot be tampered with by unauthorised personnel. Ideal for situations when a large blind size is required, or when vandal-resistance is a priority.


Alternative bottom bars in aluminium, including fabric covered; Tear Drop aluminium bottom bar in black or silver; Wire side-guiding system; Turn-button tag; Fixed crank handle.
