3 changes to Yewdale cassette blinds


There are some exciting changes to the YewdaleDefiant® cassette blinds range that we'd like to share with you. We have designed a new component, developed a new installation technique and created a cassette blinds training course to help blind installers quickly complete hassle-free installations.

1. Square headboxes

It's no secret that the headbox is the defining feature of any cassette blind. To provide you with more choices, we have designed new square headboxes for our range of cassette blinds. We will continue to manufacture the rounded headboxes that come as standard with our cassette blinds but also provide the option of a stylish square headbox.

Square headbox for cassette blinds

The headbox of a cassette blind is essential both for the system’s longevity and appearance. It protects the blind’s barrel and fabric from damage whilst keeping it free from dust. The headbox hides the blind’s barrel, which many people prefer. Our new square headbox has a modern style which helps the system blend in with the wall or recess.

2. Our new installation method

We have developed a new installation technique specifically for cassette blinds with side channels, which we have nicknamed the goalpost installation. The cassette blind’s headbox is laid on the floor with the blind inside the box and the headbox cover on, and the side channels are inserted onto the side cheek lugs of the headbox and secured with a screw.

Connecting the blind's side channels to the headbox creates a frame that resembles a football goal, which inspired the name of this installation.

The blind can then be lifted up and fixed to the wall or recess by the side channels. This is a much simpler installation method that isn’t comparable to any other system on the market. We have adjusted the side plates for all our cassette blinds to enable this style of installation.
