A Variety of Pleated Blinds To Suit Your Room
These blinds are available in many different shaped pleats:
- Cellular, or honeycomb, consist of one or two layers of pleated blinds in a honeycomb-shaped pattern.
- Standard pleated are made using the simplest pleat fold. They come in various colours, material, and fabric patterns.
- Blackout pleated options feature a blackout system that allows for a range of light control, while still maintaining the pleated design.
- Non-blackout pleated blinds are sheerer than blackout blinds, but still allow light to be filtered through them.
- Perfect Fit blinds can be installed without the use of a drill and screws, but are only suited for UPVC windows. They are quick and easy to install, and are excellent for conservatories as well.
- Free hanging pleated blinds are attached at the top of the window, but are left free hanging at the bottom. They can be controlled by pushing up or pulling down on the bottom of the blind.
Pleated Blind Safety in Your Home
Your home should be a place where your children are safe and protected, but there are hidden dangers in many homes where the cords and chains of window blinds and curtains can pose a serious risk.
Young children, particularly under the age of three, can strangle in the loop of cords and chains from window blinds and curtains.
A number of deaths of children from strangulation caused by loose cords and chains from window blinds, have been reported by the media in recent years.
Precautions to Take
- Move beds, cots and furniture away from windows.
- Keep cords and chains out of reach of children – cords should end at least 1.6 metres above the ground.
- Make your existing blinds or curtains safe – try to get rid of cords ending in a loop – learn how easy it is by watching the video above. Buy the safety items featured in our video in order to secure blind cords.
- Choose new blinds or curtains carefully – there are now many options available that don’t have cords or chains.
- Ask the shop if the blind meets the safety standard EN 13120:2009+A1:2014
- Check that the blind includes a safety device for keeping the cord out of the reach of children and that the safety device meets the safety standards EN 16433:2014 and EN 16434:2014.
- Check that written instructions for assembly, installation, use and maintenance are provided, and follow them if you are installing the blind yourself.
- Further information of the new safety standards is available from the NSAI.
- Keep window blind cords and chains out of the reach of children and follow the safety instructions.
- Using safety devices may reduce the risk of a child being strangled but nothing can be considered risk-proof.
Please Note! - All blinds fitted by Manor Interiors meet all of the guidelines and regulations above
Pleated Blinds - The Best Choice for your Conservatory.
Pleated blinds are an attractive and versatile alternative to a venetian or roller blind.
These blinds are very much on trend, fit awkward windows and offer a perfect fit solution to small windows.
Pleated blinds are often referred to as plisse blinds, we have a large selection of colours, print and fabrics to choose from.
These blinds have a very slim top with narrow bottom rails, so when open and closing, they fold incredibly neatly and take up a lot less room then other blinds. They pull up to sit flat at the top of the window. Great in small spaces.
Our Pleated Blinds are available in
- Perfect Fit
- Free Hanging
Plisse Blinds - The Best Choice for Energy Saving?
There is a lot of talk in the industry about Honeycomb blinds which are often referred to as Cellular Blinds being energy efficient and saving money on bills.
As much as we'd love that to be the case it's simply not. Pleated Blinds do offer a small amount of heat retention but it is not going to have a large impact in reducing your energy bills.
Honeycomb blinds are fantastic for conservatories and work very well at keeping the heat out during the summer months.
Conservatories are beautiful but when they overheat, it's no fun sitting in a sauna like room! Cellular blinds solve that problem and are the best on the market for this issue.
If you are unsure which type of pleated blind is right for you - give us a call or pop into our showroom.
