Today I’m going to be talking about the best type of blind you can put internally to block out 100% or 99.9% of the light coming in from outside. Now we all know that roller blinds for example we can put blockout fabric on them but like most internal blinds you still get some light coming from around the sides and depending on the type of the blind you’ll get some light coming in from up the top as well.
Well we now have a fantastic product called a cassette roller blind.
What’s a cassette roller blind I hear you ask, well good question. A cassette roller blind is pretty much a standard roller blind in a blockout fabric, because we want to block out the light, except we put a cassette over the top of the blind and that stops any light coming up from the back of the blind up to the top and we put two tracks running down the sides of the blind that guide the blind down and stop the light coming in from the sides.
So let’s have a look at a couple of photos.
The first photo you can see here is of a large window with a door, it’s in a bedroom and the photo is looking back with the blind only pulled down a little bit, however you can see where the blind is pulled down there is no light coming in from around the sides at all.
The next photo is a close up of the same blind on the right hand side and there you can see the white track with the fabric inside it and you can also see where the chain mechanism comes out at the top which is used to pull the blind up and down.
On this 3rd photo its the same blind again just showing the left hand side of the blind which of course there’s no chain on the left as you only have one chain on a blind and once again you can clearly see that there isn’t any light coming from around where the blind is hanging.
So who would these blinds be good for?
We quite often have people with babies that don’t want the light coming in the morning so great to make sure your child sleeps in which I’m sure a lot of you would appreciate. Fantastic for people that work night shift. There is nothing worse that working through the night then sleeping and being woken up by the natural light filtering through into your room. They are also great for rooms where you might have projector screens or big T.V. sets and you want to make the room really dark to create that theatre type atmosphere.
I’m sure you can think of some other uses where you’d like to make a room completely dark.
Cassette roller blinds are a fantastic product to put inside that not only look good, they’re modern, easy to use but they’ll also block out all the light for you and keep you satisfied.
So once again, thanks for watching and I look forward to speaking with you on the next video.
