Once the option for Conservatory Roofs, Pleated Blinds have steadily become more popular. This is down to their excellent thermal properties and the terrific range of colours and operating options available.
Many of the single pleat fabrics use a Solar Reflective coating on the window facing side of the blind to reflect out sun and heat in the summer and reduce heat loss in the winter.
The cellular fabrics cleverly trap air in the cells which also improves thermal insulation.
