Cassette Blinds

All YewdaleDefiant® blinds are carefully built to exacting standards, giving years of trouble-free service. The superior design features and quality components enable them to be confidently specified for the most demanding environments.
Many YewdaleDefiant® blinds feature vandalresistant controls and mechanisms, and are frequently seen in hospitals, schools, colleges and other public buildings, as well as the regular commercial and residential environments.
YewdaleDefiant® cassetted blinds give a smooth contemporary style to any window, and help to protect the blind fabric from dust or damage. The C2 range of cassettes offer a pleasing and modern alternative to standard roller blinds incorporating an attractive aluminium head-box to protect and enclose the fabric when it’s not in use for its shading purposes. The C4 cassette range includes side channels as standard. These help to retain the fabric in position, and will also give a degree of light exclusion when used in conjunction with blackout fabric.

The full range is distributed globally through a network of partners providing an unrivalled level of support, and with experienced installation and service teams to exceed your expectations.
