Benefits of pleated blinds
- Integrated pleated blinds increase the thermal window’s reflective value, making it more heat-saving and climate-friendly.
- With black side spacers with two wings, the integrated pleated blinds can provide a very low level of light penetration.
- Integrated pleated blinds provide soft lighting in buildings.
- Integrated pleated blinds are available in several different material types and colors.
Pleat colors and materials
When choosing the color of pleated blinds, the standard is aluminum coating on the outside and light grey on the inside. It is possible to choose other colors. However, be aware that other colors can give an unfavorable light, as a colored pleated blind can distort the color from sunlight. Pleated blinds are available as
are available in a range of models in different materials and with different functions. They can be divided into:
- Transparent material that shields from direct sunlight, but not from view. This type of screen ensures plenty of light in the room while maintaining visibility. Here, the transparent effect of materials is graded by the reflection of sunlight, the amount of sunlight that passes through the fabric (transmission) and the amount of sunlight that is absorbed into the fabric. Transparent pleated blinds, for example, harmonize well in an office environment where the curtain counteracts glare from monitors, among other things.
- Blackout that shuts out all sunlight. This also means that there are no small holes in the pleated fabric. When it comes to blackout pleated blinds, the color doesn’t matter as there is no light impact. Blackout pleated blinds are recommended for bedrooms, operating rooms and the like.
Operation of integrated pleated blinds
Integrated pleated blinds are operated manually or via electronic motor.
Manual operation: Cord puller (cord or ball). Can be mounted on the right or left side of the window frame so that visibility is not impaired or obstructed.
Motor control: The motor control is a 24 volt DC motor built into the thermal pane that raises and lowers the blind. Motorized pleated blinds can be controlled individually or in groups. All pleated blinds in a room can be controlled by the same switch. Groups are built electronically with a bus cable.
The number of pleated blinds that are controlled together is determined in collaboration with you. Thus, there is no max. number of pleated blinds that can be operated with the same switch.
In addition, there are four other operating methods:
- Manually operated toggle switch: Wired to the system that raises and lowers pleated blinds individually or in groups.
- Wireless manually operated rocker switch: Raises and lowers the blind individually or in groups. The range depends on the building structure (up to 50 m).
- Timer control: Controls blinds in time intervals, e.g. closing blinds outside opening hours, weekends and holidays. Can prevent burglary and the like, as the building is closed off from view.
- Weather station control: Blinds automatically adjust according to the position of the sun in the sky or the outside temperature, e.g. the blinds can be lowered on the south/east side of the building in the morning to shield against the morning sun, and then the blinds automatically adjust according to the position of the sun during the day.
By centrally controlling the pleated blinds, you can further achieve a uniform and harmonious facade, as they will all move at the same time.
Variations in the control of pleated blinds
The optimal control of the integrated pleated blinds also depends on the type of windows – for example, whether they are sloping windows.
1. Standard pleated curtain: Is a curtain that can be raised and lowered.
2. pleated blind with guide cords on the sides: This ensures that the pleated blind runs optimally in windows that can be rotated 180 degrees. The guide cords hold the blind in place.
3. pleated blind that is attached at the bottom: Here there are visible lifting cords when the blind is lowered.
4. pleated blind that can be controlled in both directions: It is installed in slanted or horizontal roof windows, etc. With black side spacers with 2 wings, there is a very low degree of light penetration
