Pleated Lantern Blinds are the traditional solution for roof lanterns
Pleated lantern blinds offer a cost effective alternative to roller lantern blinds. Whilst they do require support wires, these are made of clear nylon. Also, when retracted, they have the smallest of stacks and this, combined with slim headrails, provides a neat solution that will not restrict views or exclude light. If you wish, you can also add matching blinds to side windows in the same room and these can be pleated blinds, roller blinds, Roman blinds, Venetian blinds, Louvres and Perfect Fit blinds. All are made to measure to fit lanterns and conservatories of all designs and dimensions. All our pleated and cellular fabric is sourced in the UK and fabric has a energy rating to ensure insulation in the cold winter months and essential shading in the hot summer months. Side blinds complete the picture and bring privacy, style and beauty to your living space.
Our pleated lantern blinds offer:
- minimal number of visible support wires
- support wires made from clear nylon and not steel
- extensive range of fabrics and colours available in pleated format
- fitted to the lantern to suit budget,lantern design and dimensions
- controls insulation and glare
- blackout fabrics available
How It Works
There are two options:
Fitted close to each individual glass panel in the roof of the lantern where support wires appear much less noticeable.
Fitted horizontally as one single blind to span the entire opening of the lantern. This is the least expensive option. However, support wires are required.
Operating the blinds
While the blinds can be operated manually with a pole, a large single blind’s weight will be heavy to operate. Motorised electric blinds make life easier.
We offer a range of solutions from simple remote control to fully home automated systems. Our state of the art technology means our motorised blinds are easy to use with minimum noise.
