System Detail

KuroLok features extruded aluminium headbox and slim side channels.  The blind fabric is locked into the side channels using zip technology.  The aluminium profiles are powder coated in white or black as standard, or any other RAL colour to order.

Headboxes are either 80mm, 100mm or 125mm high, depending on blind size.  The slim side channels are only 35mm wide.  A wider 56mm side channel is also available. We can also offer an ultra-slim 24mm wide channel for motorised KuroLok only.  Sturdy steel legs connect the headbox and side channels to create a rigid frame.  Universal profiles allow the frame to be fixed through the face, sides or top as required and all fixings are completely concealed.

KuroLok blinds can be operated manually via chain or crank handle, or motorised with many control options available.  Motors with obstacle detection are also available for added safety.

Uses & Applications

Zipped-edge fabric retention is what sets KuroLok apart.  This removes the challenge, and associated maintenance issues, of fabric coming out of the side channels on traditional blackout and cassetted blinds.

The fabric being fully retained down both sides also allows for blinds to installed at up to 30o off the vertical and still function perfectly; an ideal solution for sloping glazing.  The headbox and side channels can also be recessed into walls or ceilings for the ultimate built-in look.

KuroLok blinds are simple and fast to install and are robustly built to provide a maintenance-free blind.  With all fixings concealed and slim side channels securely guiding the fabric, any roller blind can be enhanced by KuroLok.  It’s not only for blackout; a wide range of fabrics can be used with this system.

Using the same controls as our Helios system, KuroLok can be motorised or operated manually via chain or crank handle.  With the ability to cover an incredible 24m2 in a single blind, KuroLok is an outstanding performer for your shading or room darkening requirements.
