modern and functional

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.


duette blind

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.
