What are pleated blinds?

In contrast to the blinds http://proem.in.ua/Odessa, with which pleated blinds are often compared, the material used in the latter is fabric, or, rarely, paper. When forming the curtains, the fabric is pressed into folds, from which the name of the curtain originated. Next, the fabric base is attached to two or three, depending on the design, aluminum horizontal profiles.

Using a special mechanism manually, or, if automatic lifting is set up, using a remote control, the fabric rises between the profiles, adding up to the “harmonica” along the formed folds.

Unlike other sun-protection mechanisms, pleated blinds can be used with any window shape - asymmetric, rounded, arched or mansard-type on windows that are in any position - vertical, inclined, for example, on an attic window, or even horizontal.

Depending on the size of the window and the curtains, the folds may be of different widths. For a standard window, this is usually 2-2.5 cm, for a large space of a window, curtains are made with 4-5 cm folds.
