The YewdaleKestrel® KVL31 premium vertical blind, with added wand control, provides a safe, load release solution for a host of anti-ligature shading requirements.
Incorporating 40 x 25mm premium profiled white aluminium head-rail and wheeled replaceable plastic carrier trucks, as well as magnetic wall-fix / top-fix brackets. This ensures that, under excess load, the head-rail separates from the brackets leaving no remaining points of ligature – a highly essential safety feature.
The constant transport of the louvres is guaranteed by the precision-made aluminium spindle shaft.
Wand control operation with a built-in slip clutch for louvre tilt.
- 127mm and 89mm louvres available – all with enclosed louvre weights.

Premium 40 x 25mm white powder-coated head-rail with wand control operation and built-in slip clutch. Secured by magnetic wall-fix / top-fix brackets spaced in accordance with manufacturers recommendations. Fitting to be carried out by trained and accredited personnel.
It is an NHS requirement that items suspended on load-release support systems should be maintained and load-tested in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions on an annual basis. The Kestrel® system’s performance remains constant even after repeated use. It is a requirement, however, to carry out a physical inspection and testing of Kestrel® fittings to identify any possible damage or evidence of tampering and undertake an annual load test.
Sensitive electronic equipment may be damaged by proximity to a magnetic field and should not come within 150mm of the underside of the brackets. Any load-release device, by its nature, may cause damage when operated. Articles suspended from the Kestrel® magnetic anti-ligature system will come down when pulled.
Kestrel® products are designed as standalone products only. Care should be taken when assessing or arranging a room to ensure that Kestrel® products cannot be misused in conjunction with any other item, furniture or fixings in the room. It is the responsibility of the end user or client to ensure the product is suitable for the environment it is being installed in. Kestrel® products must be fitted by a qualified professional following the manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to do so could jeopardise the product’s effectiveness as an anti-ligature system.
