The cassette roller is the solution for shiftworkers, or for your master bedroom or media room. When a cassette roller is used, ALL light is blocked.
The key features of a cassette roller are
- the cassette – this is what covers the roller blind
- the side channels – these assist in stopping any light from coming around the roller blind
Cassettes are made from aluminium and come in a variety of colours, the the most common being black and white.
The cassette can be of a round or square shape. The round finish is often suitable for face fits, and the box shape for reveal fits.
When measuring for a Cassette, we make the following deductions.
- Reveal fits – deduct 2mm from the width and the drop
- Face fits – no deduction
We recommend that the cassette be fixed to the architrave via drilling through the back (face fit) or top (reveal fit) of the cassette. It is cleaner and provides less light gaps around the top. There are options of using specific brackets but these do not provide the best finish in our opinion.
Bring the Silicon
Cassette Rollers highlight any irregular features in an opening. Ensure that you have silicon to provide that clean finish between the cassette and architrave. Just something that you need to be aware of.
To finish up, when you arrange for blinds for a house, remember the media room and master bedroom will benefit immensely if you use the Cassette Roller!
