Solarfit Blinds, Kidderminster Library

Kidderminster Library, like all other libraries, is a pillar of the community. Based in Worcestershire, Kidderminster Library offers a variety of services and facilities that stretch further than the borrowing of books. It is currently being refurbished by Speller Metcalfe (Malvern) Ltd, who called upon Yewdale Customer Solarfit Blinds to fit 17 vertical blinds.

The project at the library required vertical blinds to match the existing blinds we supplied three years ago,’ said Solarfit Blind’s Peter Hodnette.


Solarfit Blinds are based in the West Midlands and predominantly supply the education and contract market with quality blinds and installations. When it came to picking out a vertical blind for Kidderminster Library, Peter had no doubts about which to choose.

We’ve been a customer of Yewdale for about eight or nine years,’ said Peter. ‘The YewdaleDefiant® VL30 vertical blind system is a quality product which we’ve used since we started using Yewdale.

Having confidence in a system is paramount to the success of a project – you need to know the system will be installed easily, quickly and that it won’t let your client down.

I’ve never had issues with the VL30 system. It took around three hours to fit all 17 blinds,’ said Peter. ‘It was a straight forward fixing into a small formed pelmet.

Yet, beyond the installation, the system itself stands up to the rigours of daily use, making it a go-to vertical blind for Peter.



The build quality is excellent and I would always recommend it if asked,’ said Peter.

The VL30 premium profile vertical blind is a precise and smooth-operating system. Available with 127mm and 89mm louvres, this system can fit even the most demanding environments.

And Peter’s thoughts on working with Yewdale?

Excellent service from BDM Brian and all the team at Yewdale.
