Pleats on the windows
Today on our blog about very unusual window covers. Pleats are not necessarily associated with windows. With fashion, clothes, style - yes. But with windows? Unnecessary.
Meanwhile, pleated blinds are one of the most interesting solutions in the field of interior protection against excessive sunlight. Their name is closely related to their appearance; what we know from the fashion catalogs has been moved to interior catalogs and it has found its way very well there. The material is arranged in decorative pleats, more or less stretched, depending on the degree of its unfolding. The characteristic pleats pattern is visible even on the fully extended blind.
The decorative pattern of the material is one thing, but the uniqueness of the pleats is hidden in something else. In the way they are rolled/unrolled - it is unique in relation to other internal roller blinds or blinds.
Pleats - why are they unique
The pleats are characterized by high quality of the materials used and decorative accessories. However, it is the cover material layout options that make it unique. In the pleat, the material can be found anywhere in the glass. Both the upper and lower parts of the fixture are movable in relation to the glass. This means that the blind can end up in the top or bottom part of the window after it is fully rolled up; depending on our preferences. In addition, such a design solution allows you to cover the pane at any point - the blind belt may as well be in the center of the window. This is very beneficial, because the rays of the sun change the angle of incidence during the day. The arrangement of the pleat can be changed so that the material is in a specific place and at the same time revealing a part of the window in another - it allows to illuminate the interior nicely. Of course, the pleats material can also cover the entire pane.
The great advantage of pleats is also the fact that they can be used in eyelets of non-standard shapes - trapezoidal, oval or arched; they can also be mounted on roof windows. At Knall, pleated blinds are made to measure, so they can also be adapted to large windows or glazing, such as conservatories.
The construction of the pleat has one more important advantage - there is no control mechanism in the form of tapes or strings with beads. Thus, they are very safe for small children, who might, for example, break a string and try to swallow a small bead.
Material and assembly of pleats
Pleated fabrics are available in 14 groups of fabrics, and 16 colors of the accessories are selected. We compose everything together when placing an order.
When choosing a material, apart from the appropriate colors, we also choose its thickness. It can be a delicate and transparent fabric, perfect for kitchens, living rooms, and living rooms, which should be well lit despite the blinds being closed. We can also choose a material with a thicker texture, one that will darken the interior; which will work especially in bedrooms. Depending on your needs and taste, you can choose the most suitable fabric.
The installation of pleated blinds is hassle-free. They can be installed non-invasively using special holders or screwed to the window frame/glazing bead. Due to the unusual design (moving the blinds), there is no cassette. The pleat takes up little space and fits exactly to the glass.
