New - Roller Blind Cassettes & Side Channels

Danielle Crosby - Tuesday, April 15, 2014

...

At Dollar Curtains & Blinds we manufacture our own Roller Blind Cassettes & Side Channels.
 
- Manufacturing ourselves creates better quality control & gives us the ability to charge you less and offer you more! 
- Quicker manufacturing shortens the length of time you have to wait for your Blinds! 
 
Sleek and contemporary cassette systems are available with the option of side channels in four powder coated colours; white, birch white, black and the popular anodised.
 
Adding a powder coated aluminium cassette creates a stylish finish, housing the fabric and mechanism of the Blind, further insulation and concealing componentry underneath. Combining this with side channels further adds to these benefits and improves light control creating complete darkness.
 
There are many more benefits to using Cassettes & Side Channels on your Roller Blinds...
 
- Increase light control, insulation & conceal hardware underneath 
- Cost effective way to give you complete blockout of light 
- Great for kids who can't sleep 
- Great for people who work shift work 
- Economical option for theatre rooms 
- Can have up to 3 blinds in the one cassette all with side channels making it a great option for large windows
