Making the most of your pleated blinds

Pleated blinds are the ideal solution to controlling the amount of light admitted by awkwardly shaped windows and doors. Pleated blinds are a stylish alternative to the nets and voiles of yesteryear’s fashion.

  1. Sleek and simple filter the light coming into your room.
  2. A great way to play with shade and create the colour in your room.
  3. Fabrics have been cleverly designed to keep excessive heat out in the summer and the warmth in during the winter.

  5. Sheer fabrics are a stylish alternative to net curtains.
  6. Make it sleek, neat and functional.

Pleated (plisse) blinds are something different and very useful for those difficult doors and windows. As they can fit directly on to UPVC they are ideal for tilt and turn windows, or non-rectangular shapes. With solar reflective backing, the blinds can help to reduce the heat in your rooms too.

Developments like the Duette® 25mm fabrics are twin layered pleated blinds creating a honeycomb appearance to trap the air and act as an insulator. Designed primarily for rectangular blinds, they are especially good as blackout blinds as there are no visible tension cords or cord holes.

Pleated blinds combine stylish design with practical glare reflection for temperature control. These blinds are the most popular choice for conservatory roof blinds as they are suitable for all shapes and sizes. The contemporary appearance gives an uncluttered finish, soften the light, insulate and provide privacy.

In conservatories, orangeries or glass extensions shading is a necessity. Automatically controlled shading devices are most effective in reducing the amount of energy consumed in both summer and winter.

The choice of shading solution is extensive - pleated, roller, roman, pinoleum, venetian and vertical blinds are all suitable for motorisation, both for side windows and glass roofs.

Automated control increases the lifetime of the blinds without incorrect handling and removes the need for unsightly manual openers.

With large numbers of blinds, automation can significantly speed up the opening and retraction process. The devices enable you to control one-at-a-time, a set number or all of the blinds together.

The SMART conservatory can be achieved easily. If you are having a new conservatory installed, think about your requirements early on in the planning process, so that there is power nearby.

  • Making Blinds Child Safe: We recognise that child safety is an important issue for anyone who is furnishing their home. This has now been recognized in law too.

    The crux of the regulation is simple MAKE IT SAFE but that does mean there needs to be a little more thought applied to what solution is installed to ensure they are child safe.

    Regulation EN13120 means cord or chain operated blinds can only be installed with a safety breaker and/or retention bracket or cleat to reduce the risk of strangulation to children and vulnerable persons.
  • Simple Safety Guidelines: As children grow, so does their curiosity about the world around them. Basic household items, including window coverings, can turn into potential hazards. We consider Child safety a top priority and now European legislation EN13120 sets a minimum standard for Internal Blinds Performance – this includes SAFETY.

    All products supplied will meet the requirements of EN13120 and be installed to the requirements laid out in the legislation.

    Blinds present a hazard with unrestrained cords, braids, loop chains and wires, which may be hazardous especially to young children. There are simple guidelines that should always be followed when installing blinds:

    1. Make sure all cords and chains are out of reach from small children.
    2. Where cords cannot be cut down, a tension device needs to be used to secure the cords/chain.
    3. Do not allow cords or chain to hang free.
    4. Never put a cot, bed, high chair or playpen near a window or patio door where a child can reach the blinds cords or chain.
    5. Keep sofas, chairs, tables, shelves or bookcases away from windows to prevent children climbing up and reaching blind cords/chain.
    6. Finally, use inherently safe products that don't use cord or chain.
