Pleated Blinds are a window blind that can either be free hanging or tensioned!
Pleated blinds can be manufactured to fit standard square or rectangular windows as well as shaped or triangular windows in a Roof Apex or a Conservatory. They have a very thin head rail and bottom rail with a floating bar that the fabric is attached too sliding in between, this tensioned system keeps the fabric taught with guide wires and springs inside the head rail and allows you to install these blinds horizontally or at an angle without the fabric hanging down. The free hanging system works in a similar way to any standard blind and you pull a cord which will then raise the blind upwards, a quick release of the cord and the Pleated Blinds will lower again.
These versatile blinds are ideal for smaller windows, due to how compact they are means that you have very little fabric stack at the top of a window, you can fit them just about anywhere in the home. They are extensively used in the USA with Duette style fabrics, this Duette fabric has excellent thermal qualities and will shade your windows perfectly as well as help to keep the heat in during those colder months. You can even get a Black Out Density fabric especially useful for Bedrooms or where you want to restrict the light coming into a room.
There is a huge range of fabric colours for Pleated Blinds so you are sure to find something that will match you decor, you can have either plain or patterns, or a fabric with a texture to pick out something similar in your soft furnishings.
You can even motorise your Pleated Blinds and have the luxury of operating them from anywhere in the room with a remote control handset, a little forward planning is needed for this type of installation as all Pleated Blinds are 24v and require a transformer.
