BlindBox™ is a one-piece aluminium profile conferring the further benefits of a clean, sophisticated finish, significant savings on installation time and cost effectiveness and a reduction in site waste.

BlindBox™ is a fresh view on the traditional bulkhead constructed in timber and plasterboard and then decorated. BlindBox™ works in a similar way by providing a universal housing that accommodates most makes of blinds with added options of a closure plate to conceal the blinds further and a ceiling flange that integrates with the main ceiling. BlindBox™ provides a very secure fixing with bracket locks to suit Armour systems.

BlindBox™ is designed to be installed to a completed shell before ceiling construction. When installed, BlindBox™ creates a universal recessed housing concealing the retracted blinds and provides the perimeter ceiling edge in one integral profile. With no further requirement for drilling on site the blinds are simply and cleanly fitted just before handover.

BlindBox™ will enhance your project with its speed of installation, aesthetics, less mess and cost saving features. BlindBox™ replaces the traditional bulkhead by providing a universal housing that suits blinds from most manufacturers with many benefits for the Specifier, the Contractor and the Client.
