Information Sheet on Cassette & Side Tracks
When a higher level of blackout is required, opt for a blackout roller blind with a top cassette and side tracks.
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. The bottom bar is finished with specifically designed end caps which help to slide it between the brushes of the side tracks.
A blackout roller blind with cassette and side tracks 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 the cassette and side tracks may not create total blackout as there may 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.
We offer 2 different size cassettes depending on the size of your roller blind. In general, blinds up to 200cm wide will use a smaller cassette and blinds over 200cm wide will use a larger cassette. The cassettes and side tracks have a gloss white finish and the chain control has a chrome finish.
This product includes our Palette Blackout Roller Blind, full details of which can be seen here. The blind is fitted into the cassette so that you have one complete unit.
You can order a sample of the side tracks for the purpose of helping to measure/mock up on our Roller Blind Parts page for Cassette & Side Tracks.
For child safety, our roller blinds are supplied with a chain tidy. The length of the chain control is made to child safety regulations. If you require a longer chain, please add this to the order notes.
