The Bosa Chocolate XL Blackout Cassette Blind is our Total Blackout solution to cast your room into complete darkness. The barrel and blackout fabric are neatly enclosed within the aluminium headbox and side channels ensure the edge of the fabric stays in place. As a result, this blind creates a light omitting seal, blocking light from entering the room.
Our total blackout cassette blinds are perfect for any room you are looking to banish daylight. From Bedrooms to Home Cinema Rooms, our cassette blinds will provide you with complete darkness all year round.
The Bosa Chocolate fabric is a Brown coloured blackout fabric made from Polyester. It is operated by a nickel chain that protrudes through the bottom of the headbox. This cassette blind can go to a maximum width of 3450mm.
Due to the nature of the light omitting seal created by this blackout blind, windows must be closed while this blind is down. Opening a window behind the blind could cause a vacuum resulting in the fabric being sucked from the side channels and resulting in damage to the blind.
Available in either a White or Black hardware finish full technical specifications can be found in the Geeky Stuff section below.

Our Blackout cassette blinds are designed first and foremost to provide darkness in a room by creating a sealed unit in or around the window.
To fit this blind you will be required to drill multiple holes, not just into the masonry you’re fitting to, but into the headbox and side channels themselves as they don’t come pre-drilled. The reason for this is that you will need to ensure the entire blind sits squarely within a recess or against the wall, so you will need to decide where to specifically screw the blind to the wall.
The cassette blind is comprised of an aluminium headbox fascia in which the fabric on a barrel is held. Aluminium side channels run from top to bottom and are attached to the headbox. The fabric has fabric retaining pips attached to it and these pips are what hold the fabric in the side channels.
Important: When the blind is in operation the window must be shut. Failure to close the window when the fabric is anywhere but fully rolled up can cause the fabric to be pulled out of the side channels. This can damage the fabric or the side channel and the warranty will be voided. Do not operate this blind with an open window. If you install this blind on behalf of someone else, please inform them.
At the bottom of the fabric is the bottom bar that has a pile seal on the bottom of it. This helps to form a barrier against light at the bottom of the window when it sits on the bottom fixing strip.
The headbox measures 105mm high and 95mm deep.
The side channels measure 55.3mm wide and if recess fitted, the side channels are 29.5mm deep, and if face fitted, they are 25.2mm deep. Please note, recess-fit side channels cannot be used for face fitting, and vice-versa as they are different.
The bottom fixing strip is 25mm tall and 21mm deep and will match the chosen hardware colour. This L-shaped metal strip is there to allow the bottom bar to sit just in front of it, thus creating another barrier between the window and the room.
The hardware is available in white or black and this blind is operated by a nickel chain that can be on the left or right side of the blind.
We expect our cassette blinds to provide darkness in your room for standard use. However, we are not able to guarantee absolute darkness due to differences in installation, location and light direction. Every care and attention has been made to engineer this type of blind to give maximum levels of darkness.
Blackout Chain Controlled Roller Blind Cassette System in Action
Sometimes you just need some peace of mind when you come to place an order for your blinds. With DotcomBlind’s Right-Size Guarantee you can have just that. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will replace one blind or curtain with the correct size if you get the measurements wrong when you order. Please note, the Right Size Guarantee excludes Cassette Blinds.
Why do I need this Insurance?
We can’t accept returns or provide refunds for blinds that are mis-measured because all of our blinds are made to measure and so the onus is on the customer to get the measurements right for their blinds. Sometimes you might just be having an off-day, get your centimetres and inches mixed up and end up with a blind that is nigh-on useless. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will take that one blind back, remake it to the correct size for you and send it back, saving you from having to buy a totally new blind! The Right Size Guarantee covers all made-to-measure blinds and curtains except our Cassette Blinds.
How does it work?
✔ Purchase Right-Size Guarantee when you place your order
✔ If one of your blinds has been measured incorrectly, get in touch with us within 14 days and we’ll tell you how to return the blind to us.
✔ Once your blind is with us, we’ll remake it or adjust the blind to your correct measurements and send it back.
✔ Please read our terms and conditions for full details as you will incur additional costs returning the blind to us.

This blind uses a chain mechanism for its operation. By moving the chain, you can lift the blind fabric up, or lower it. Our chain mechanisms are child-safe and should always be installed with any additional safety accessories provided such as P clips.
This blind features a fire-retardant fabric, providing peace of mind and safety to your home. Our fire retardant fabric is a high-quality material that will not catch fire when presented with a flame; instead, the area that is in contact with the flame will burn but it will self-extinguish once the source of heat has been removed.
This blind is made in the UK in one of DotcomBlinds’ UK factories. By purchasing a blind made right here in the UK you are helping to support the British manufacturing industry. Blinds made in the UK will typically have shorter lead times due to the fact they won’t need to be shipped internationally.
This blind is available on our Same Day Priority Dispatch Service, which is ideal for when you need a blind in a hurry. By selecting the Same Day Priority Dispatch option at checkout, your blind will jump to the front of our production queue, being made and dispatched that same day when ordered before 11am on weekdays (orders after 11 am or on weekends/bank holidays will be prioritised for the next working day). Please be aware that while most SDPDs are delivered the next working day, we do not guarantee next-day delivery.
This blind features a plain fabric with a solid colour. Plain fabrics are incredibly versatile and can easily be matched to the existing decor in your home or add a fresh new colour to your windows. Be sure to order FREE fabric samples to get a feel for the look and feel of the fabric in person before making a purchase.
This blind is available to order with a stylish headbox, covering the top of the blind and its mechanism. The use of a headbox can make your blind look neater and help to minimise light leakage over the top of the blind.
This blind is available to be made in our XL sizes. Our Range of Made to Measure XL Wide Width Roller Blinds are a range of premium high-end oversized blinds designed to meet the needs of larger windows. Available in a huge selection of Dimout, Blackout and Screen Fabric perfect to give you the desired amount of shading required XL Wide Width Roller Blinds can be made to a maximum width of 4700mm (4.7m) with a drop of up to 5750mm (5.75m).
This blind features a blackout fabric, proving the light-blocking benefits you would expect from a blackout blind. This fabric will not allow exterior light to pass through it, helping to create a dark environment in your home, which is ideal for bedrooms and home cinemas. Please be aware a minimal amount of light may still leak into a room around the edges of the blind.
This blind features a thick thermal fabric, which will help provide additional insulation to your home’s windows, making your home more thermally efficient. In winter, these blinds will keep your home warmer by minimising heat loss through your windows, and in summer, they will keep your home cooler by minimising the amount of outside heat that enters your interiors.
