Pleated blinds offer a softer approach to window shading and are typically suited to conservatory or special feature applications such as roof blind.
A complete spectrum of designs and colourways, including technical fabrics for all domestic and commercial applications are available. Most fabrics offer a UV reflective coating on the back to help keep your conservatory as cool as possible in summer.
Day and Night
Combine two contrasting Duette® fabrics or even a Duette® with a Plissé fabric in one shade for one window. During the day, enjoy the view through a highly transparent, light filtering fabric; at night, switch over to a more opaque or even a black-out Duette® fabric to eliminate light and ensure privacy.
The ultimate in versatility, Top-Down/Bottom-Up pleated blinds offer you the ability to operate blinds from the top down, the bottom up, or in combination of the two. Quite literally the best of both worlds.
The standard means of operation for a free hanging pleated or duette blinds is the traditional cord lock system, similar to that used on a venetian blind.
Blinds can be fitted with tensioned cords allowing simple hand or wand operation. This is the standard means of operation for skylight roof blinds, but can also be used for window blinds.
SmartCord™ uses a revolutionary and patented cord mechanism to raise and lower the blind. It features a retractable pull cord that maintains a constant cord length, which means no more dangling cords to detract from the appearance of the blind and offers an effortless and child friendly operation.
SmartRise is a completely cordless system and ultimate in child safety, this cordless push up, pull down system raises and lowers the product with the touch of a finger. Its proprietary design holds the shade securely in any position. SmartRise reduces potential safety hazards, offers more user comfort and a beautifully streamlined appearance.
