Made-to-measure pleated & cellular blinds
We manufacture and supply a range of pleated and cellular blinds available as freehanging blinds or with Perfect Fit frames. We use trade specialists Eclipse Blinds Systems and Louvolite for our pleated fabrics and blind components, with the blinds made by hand in our workshop in Ross-on-Wye. We understand that pleated & cellular blinds can be a significant investment and you may need time to consider multiple quotes or different products. We offer a no obligation measure & quote service, with no sales pressure, full written quotes on request and an extensive selection of fabrics. Depending on your budget, and the structure and design of your windows, we can offer:
Freehanging pleated blinds
These are becoming less popular and we sell very few of them, however there are a wide variety of fabrics are available including plains, blackout options, prints and patterns. For rooms with a lot of solar heat gain we do recommend fabrics with a solar coating on the reverse, of which there are plenty.
Pleated blinds in Perfect Fit frames
These are tensioned pleated blinds fitted within Aluminium 'Perfect Fit' frames so the blinds appear integrated with the window itself. This is a 'no screw' product, with the frames fitted to the window using specially designed brackets which push under the rubber gasket that sits between the window frame and the glass (there is also a 'Konnect' version available for windows that aren't suitable for standard push-fit Perfect Fit frames).
Intu pleated and cellular blinds
Intu are similar to Perfect Fit but with a top and bottom rail that beadfits, rather than a full frame. We do not make these ourselves, hence they are not as keenly priced as the Perfect Fit version. Some windows cannot accommodate Perfect Fit frames and in this situation an Intu blind may be a good solution.
Cellular blinds are double layer pleated blinds that are sometimes referred to as 'honeycomb' blinds. They are a premium product because they offer improved thermal benefits and are better for blackout as the cords run within the centre of the fabric rather than through holes punched through each pleat. They can be installed with or without Perfect Fit frames.
