Information Sheet on Cassette & Side Tracks
This product is the top cassette and side tracks only. If you wish to purchase a Palette Blackout roller blind with the cassette and side tracks, click here.
When a higher level of blackout is required, opt for top cassette and side tracks to your blackout roller blind.
Made from durable powder coated aluminium, the top cassette houses the roller tube and mechanism and minimises light leakage around the top of the roller blind. The side tracks act as guide rails for the blind to roll through, ensuring there is no gap between the sides of the blind and the window. Brushes within the side tracks also minimise light leakage from the sides of the blind.
Adding a top cassette and side tracks to your blackout roller blind also helps to block draughts and prevent heat loss.
Blackout roller blinds with cassette and side tracks are ideal for bedrooms, nurseries, home cinemas, photography studios and science laboratories. They are ideal for light sleepers and night workers, aiding restful sleep.
Please note that cassette and side tracks will not create 'total' blackout as there will still be a small degree of light seepage, mainly from where the cassette meets the ceiling. An even better level of blackout can be achieved by using builder's caulk along the length of the unit after fitting. Total (photo-lab level) blackout is surprisingly hard to achieve, but you can get very close to it! A further optional bottom track can be fitted at the bottom of the blind - please contact us for more information.
The price shown is for the top cassette and side tracks as an add-on to your roller blind. It does not include the blind itself which needs to be ordered separately.
We will fit the blind into the cassette so that you have one complete unit.
A roller blind with a fabric covered bottom bar is the only compatible bottom bar option for use with side tracks.
We also offer the option for the front of the cassette to be covered in the fabric of the blind. This creates a more coordinated look.
You can order a sample of the side tracks for the purposes of helping to measure/mock up by clicking on the 'Order free swatches' icon under the main image.
