Feb 08, 2017

We're proud to showcase BlindBox™, a fresh view on the traditional bulkhead. BlindBox™ works by providing aluminium universal housing, designed to accommodate most makes of blinds. At Stansons Group, we know that BlindBox™ will enhance your project with its speed of installation, aesthetics, less mess and cost saving features.

Take a look at what BlindBox™ can do for your project...

The traditional way to hide blinds usually involves constructing a bulkhead in timber and plasterboard, which then also has to be decorated. Whilst BlindBox™ works in a similar way, by providing a universal housing, it offers the option of a closure plate to conceal the blinds further and a ceiling flange that integrates with the main ceiling.

This innovative solution is sold in 3m lengths and is designed to be installed to a completed shell, before ceiling construction.

Once installed, BlindBox™ creates a recessed housing which conceals retracted blinds and provides the perimeter ceiling edge in one simple profile. Due to the ease of the installation, there is no further requirement for drilling on-site and the blinds are cleanly fitted just before handover. You can expect minimal dust, debris and material wastage.

BlindBox™ provides a very secure fixing with bracket locks to suit Armour systems, reducing your reliance on the installer. Its bracket-locking system works to secure the blind support brackets, eliminating the risk of them being pulled out. This fixes the whole width of the blind, dramatically reducing fixing load points. The brackets are square and millimetre perfect.
