Pleated blinds are not very popular in Belgium. However, this form of window decoration brings with it a lot of advantages. The elegant profiles of this product are very small which makes them very suitable for mounting in the window frame.
Pleated blind fabrics are very recognisable because of their fixed folds. In addition to these well-known standard fabrics, we also sell Duette® fabrics. This is a very high quality developed fabric as it can be scientifically proven to be the most energy saving form of sun protection.
As with most types of window decoration, you can also choose between black-out fabrics or fabrics that allow some light to pass through. In addition, you can choose between corded, electric or handle controls.
Light filtering fabrics offer privacy but still allow a limited amount of light through. This allows you to maintain a perfect connection with the outside world without sacrificing privacy. In the evening there is also a limited view inwards. Light filtering pleated blinds are mainly chosen for living spaces.
If you want complete privacy, black-out fabrics are the ideal choice. No one can look inside during the day or in the evening. Ideal for a window on the street side. Black-out fabrics are also very popular for bedrooms. They are ideal to darken a room.
The window decoration is placed between the window frame or the walls.
Measure the width in different places each time and then take the smallest size.
Finished width = smallest measured width - 0.5 cm
Next, also measure the height in different places and also take the smallest size here.
Finished height = smallest measured height - 0.5 cm
The window decoration is placed on the window frame or the wall. In this case, you can choose the desired overlap.
To do so, measure the width of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished width = measured width + desired overlap
You can also choose the desired overlap in height.
To do so, measure the height of the window frame and choose the overlap.
Finished height = measured height + desired overlap
It was decided at European level that interior blinds and window decoration should meet new requirements in terms of Child Safety. These new requirements relate to the risk that cord and/or chain loops can pose to young children. (European Standards: EN 13120, EN 16433 and EN 16434)
The general rule is that the controls must always be at least 150 cm above the ground. In the ordering process you should always specify the installation height. Based on this, we will provide the chain or cord control with the correct length. Each product is also supplied with a safety device with which you must tension the chain or cord (laterally). This should ensure that young children cannot stick their heads through the cord or chain loop and thus avoid the risk of strangulation.
We are constantly working on our customer experience and the perception of our products. Soon we will place short instructional videos online in which the mounting will be shown step by step. In the meantime, you can use the installation instructions below. These explain step by step which things you need to pay attention to during the installation and operation of your pleated blind.
If you have any questions or encounter problems during the mounting of your pleated blind you can contact us online or contact the Diaz distributor where you picked up the product.
