Pleated Blinds - Project Five Brief

This project clearly illustrates what you do not want when you decide to have conservatory roof blinds installed.

The following sequence of photographs (images ‘A’ to ‘F’ inclusive) demonstrates the huge difference between well and not so well made blinds.

‘You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear’

As with most things in life, ‘there’s a right way and a wrong way’ for doing anything.

No matter what shape or how complicated your conservatory roof might be, you can rely on Blindstyle’s expertise to do the job ‘the right way’

Pleated Blinds - Project Six Brief

To supply and install a total of 52 pleated blinds [30 roof blinds and 22 sidewall blinds] at this engineer’s house.

A moderately challenging project due to boundary restrictions at one end creating some difficult shaped roof-lights.

We used a 20mm manually operated pleated system with a solar reflective fabric all round.

End result: an extremely satisfied customer.

Pleated Blinds - Project Seven Brief

To supply and install a suitable roof blind system which would not only enable the opening and closing of the many obtuse angled roof-light blinds but which also required that the individual obtuse angled blinds must not be made as two separate blinds.

Solution:

Following a meticulous survey we were able to comply with our client’s exacting wishes.

We supplied and installed a 20mm manually operated pleated blind system using single blinds as specified for each of the obtuse angled roof-lights, and ensured that they could be partially retracted as required.

Challenging – yes!, but rewarding to see the satisfied look on our client’s face.

Pleated Blinds - Project Eight Brief

To take down existing dated roof and sidewall blinds and replace with a more modern system. The new system had to allow for comfortable daytime TV viewing in this south facing ‘Amdega’ conservatory, whilst not noticeably reducing the natural daylight.

Solution:

For the French doors and sidewall windows at the end of the conservatory where the TV was located we used double blinds (night and day), combining a black out fabric with a plain translucent fabric. This allows the customer to decide when to activate the black-out element of each of these blinds.

For the remaining sidewall blinds and the roof blinds we used the same solar reflective , fire retardant, plain white translucent fabric, as used with the double blinds.

End result: another satisfied customer.

Pleated Blinds - Project Nine Brief

To recommend a suitable, practical and functional blind system for this large glazed extension consisting of some 35 separate sidewall windows and roof-lights.

Solution:

Having considered all the options which were somewhat limited because of the nature of the build we settled on a 20mm manually operated tensioned pleated blind system, using a translucent, solar reflective fabric. And, rather then taking the easy option and covering a number of windows with one blind, we decided on individual blinds for the majority of the windows.

Though there were some initial doubts expressed about the sheer number of blinds that were being proposed, these were soon forgotten when the installation was completed.

As the project photo gallery shows, by opening or closing an individual blind here or there the outward looking perspective can be totally altered, while internally, a lovely warm ambience is created.

This is the 6th. project that we have carried out for this family over the years!

Pleated Blinds - Project Ten Brief

To take down and remove existing dated and unimaginatively installed 25mm pleated blind system, and to suggest a more suitable and professional replacement.

Solution:

Following our initial survey we suggested that a number of architectural refinements be made to various areas of the roof, agreement having been reached, we then carried out these works ourselves. We then supplied and installed a manually operated 20mm pleated blind system, using a solar reflective fabric.

End result; a very satisfied customer with a professional looking and aesthetically pleasing installation.

Pleated Blinds - Project Eleven

ON BEHALF OF AN INSURANCE COMPANY

To inspect, assess and report findings on the extent of damage to the blind installation in this conservatory as a result of water ingress, and to quote for the supply and installation of a suitable replacement system.

Solution:

Following our report/recommendations we replaced the old 25mm pleated roof blind system and the sidewall 127mm vertical blinds with a 20mm tensioned pleated blind system throughout.

Originally, the face fitted vertical blinds were encroaching on the already limited useable floor area in this rather small conservatory. We proposed a far more practical and functional solution, with the individual blinds fitting neatly between the beading on each window and both doors.

End result: yet another satisfied customer, not to mention an appreciative insurance company!

Pleated Blinds - Project Twelve Brief

None, this customer knew what to expect from Blindstyle Ltd. All they had to do was select the fabric!

Solution:

Again, see for yourselves.

End result: a very satisfied customer.

Pleated Blinds - Not Just For Conservatories!

Though designed originally for use in conservatories we find that because of their versatility people are now gradually beginning to use them elsewhere in the home.

They allow you to create a wonderful ambience composed of light and shade.

They come in a vast, rich and an appealing choice of textures and fabrics.

Translucent, Transparent, Opaque or Blackout, the choice is yours.

The following sequence of photographs, show just a few examples of alternative uses.

Pleated Blinds - Project Three Brief

Suggest a suitable, practical and functional pleated roof blind system for this conservatory.

Once again the, “The others tell you what they can do – we show you!” phrase is apt.

Whether it is 21 roof blinds, as in this conservatory, many of which were complicated, or 4 straightforward rectangular shaped roof blinds for a ‘lean-to’ style conservatory, you can expect the same high standards and attention to detail from Blindstyle Ltd.

See for yourselves.

Pleated Blinds - Project Four Brief

To come up with a practical and functional pleated blind system for this conservatory roof.

Though relatively small overall (12 blinds) this was to prove quite challenging, in particular blind no. 6.

Again, we prefer to let the photos do the talking!

Total No. of blinds: 44

Needless to say, our client was extremely pleased with the outcome.

Blindstyle - Awnings, Conservatory Blinds, Vertical Blinds and Wood Venetian Blinds

Pleated Conservatory Blinds

Pleated blinds can be installed in the most challenging window recesses and look great thanks to market leading systems such as Equipleat®, a patented system that ensures that the pleats retain their shape, remain equidistant and do not permit the blinds to bunch at the base or sag.

Our customers are increasingly appreciating the need to install a product that will not only provide solar protection for the summer but will also act as a thermal insulator and retain warmth for the colder months of the year.

Singular pleated textiles with Perlex® and similar specialised coatings are all designed to reduce the incidence of solar radiation. They work by reflecting heat and sunlight outwards whilst still allowing adequate daylight to pass through, bringing out the natural design and colour tones of the fabric itself.

These durable fabrics are mostly dust-repellent and resistant to the effects of moisture, insect deposits and alkaline cleaners.

In addition to these main advantages of pleated conservatory blinds is the appearance when retracted, as they are neat, tidy and unobtrusive. When the blinds are drawn they transform the look of the conservatory by adding colour, warmth and décor whilst still maintaining the clean, uncluttered lines of the conservatory itself. The audible advantage is also instantly recognized when sounds are absorbed into the textiles instead of the noticeable echo found in conservatories without blinds installed.

Pleated Blinds offer a fantastic shading furnishing that will add a certain ‘joie de vivre’ to any interior design.

CAUTIONARY NOTE:

Conservatory design is becoming increasingly more sophisticated. This is especially evident in the case of the conservatory roof, where shapes can be quite intricate. This is all the more reason for you to make sure that the people you entrust with solving your shading requirements can show you a track record in handling awkward spaces.
