Conceal roller blinds from view

With large, glazed windows now a feature in many modern buildings and minimalist design the choice for many, why have blinds on show when they’re not in use? For some people, less is more. We designed ShadeBox® with that in mind and believe this is truly one of the most innovative products that we have created.

ShadeBox® allows building occupants to maximise their view and connect with the outside world without any obstruction, keeping the interior sleek and stylish. When the blind is raised and not in use, the ShadeBox® system completely conceals the blind from view for a tidy and discreet finish. When lowered, the blind descends from within the ceiling. 

Easy blind installation

ShadeBox® is installed during the ceiling construction. A tradesperson can dryline or plaster right up to the box using the drylining section component, leaving a seamless finish.

Alternatively, the tradesperson can use the alternative adaptor which allows the box to be fitted within false ceilings.

Hidden roller blinds

Metal transition plates are fitted on either side of the box to allow your choice of YewdaleDefiant® roller blind, whether chain operated or electric. The plates accommodate either a 45mm grooved aluminium barrel with metal chain operation or a 53mm/70mm grooved aluminium barrel for electric operation, depending on blind size and fabric weight.

The plates allow the blinds to slide into place for an easy fit once the ceiling and room are finished. Using the transitional plates allows the blinds to be easily removed and changed in the future if a change in fabric colour or operation is required. 

ShadeBox® can also accommodate other manufacturers’ blinds installing the blind directly to the box leaving out the transition plates.


ShadeBox® is supplied in component form only and is available up to 5m in length.  The box is 115mm x 115mm and made from durable white power coated aluminium. Supplied as standard in white, but if the white hardware doesn’t fit with the building’s design and style, ShadeBox® can be powder coated in any RAL colour to fit the room’s colour theme.

If you want to install roller blinds that don’t draw attention from the rooms they’re fitted in and obscure the view, look no further than our new ShadeBox®.
