There is a strong association "blinds-office". This association is easy to explain, but it is immediately destroyed when looking at some of these interesting systems. There are blinds that, even with a strong desire, cannot be hung in the office - the coziness and tranquility they create do not set you in the working mood.
Blinds-pleated, or as they are also called - pleated curtains - one of the brightest representatives of home blinds. Due to the widest color range of fabrics used and the ability to adapt to any shape of the window, they successfully fit into any modern interior and go well with the fabrics used for decorating windows.
Pleated blinds have all the necessary qualities: functionality, reliability, ease of installation and ease of use. Pleated curtains are especially useful if the windows are irregularly shaped (for example, triangular, semicircular, or even round) and sloped, such as glass roofs in conservatories.
There are two types of pleated blinds control:
1. Rope - lifting and lowering of the canvas is carried out using a control rope, similar to horizontal blinds. This type of control is possible only in rectangular curtains.
2. Manual - lifting and lowering of the canvas is carried out using a handle fixed to a movable cornice. In this case, the curtain can be collected up and down, and it is also possible to use two types of fabric (the so-called day-night system).
The system can be made in white and brown.
When using the pleated system, the fabric, especially when it hangs vertically, eventually gathers in large folds at the bottom and creates an uneven effect. Pleated fabric cut to fit the shape of an irregularly shaped window will only conform to this shape if the fabric is evenly distributed over the window area. If the curtain is, for example, triangular, the fabric will always be of the correct width at the very bottom. However, it will not completely cover the window if the fabric in the middle of the curtain gathers in large folds at the bottom. The above disadvantages are solved thanks to the Equipleat system, which is a system of additional ribbons on the back of the canvas, which does not allow the canvas to sag. In addition, the Equipleat system does not allow for punching holes in the fabric for rope,thanks to which the fabric will last longer and look more aesthetically pleasing.
Conservatories, skylights and flaps are covered with curtains using Compleat accessories. In fact, this is the same Equipleat system, equipped with additional cables that do not allow the web to deviate from the inclined surface of the opening.
And one more huge plus - pleating care is very simple - these products are easily washed in warm water and dried when folded.
