Suitable Areas for Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds are suitable for a variety of rooms and areas in both residential and office settings. They work well in bedrooms, lounges, kitchens, children’s rooms, and conference rooms. Additionally, pleated blinds are particularly ideal for conservatories and areas where guide wires would provide added benefits.

Cosiflor® Pleated Blinds – Fabrics

There is a wide range of fabrics available with Perlex coating.

Pleated fabrics come in Semi-Transparent, Dim Out, and Blackout options, catering to different needs. Cosiflor® pleated blinds offer a diverse selection of fabrics, providing approximately 60 options with variations in colours, textures, and technical characteristics.

OEKO-TEX standard 100

Our fabrics comply with the OEKO-TEX standard, ensuring the use of environmentally compatible technologies, chemicals, and dyes during production. This standard promotes sustainable and safe manufacturing practices. More information can be found at


When Ordering Pleated Blinds

When selecting pleated blinds, it’s important to consider the following characteristics:

  • Reflectance: Reflectance refers to the percentage of light and heat passing through the glass that is reflected to the outside by the fabric.
  • Absorption: Absorption represents the percentage of heat absorbed by the fabric. Darker coloured fabrics tend to absorb more heat compared to lighter fabrics.
  • Transmission: Transmission measures the percentage of light and heat that passes through the fabric and enters the room.

Easy Maintenance

We understand the importance of convenience in your busy lifestyle, which is why our pleated blinds are designed for easy maintenance. With their durable and dirt-resistant materials, a simple wipe or occasional gentle vacuuming is all it takes to keep them looking fresh and clean.

Our Cosiflor® pleated blinds can also be washed in a solution of warm water (up to 30 degrees Celsius) with a mild detergent. After rinsing, gently push the fabric into its stack and remove excess water. Hang the blind in a closed position and move it up and down several times to aid in drying. Please note that these instructions do not apply to metallised fabrics or coated blockout fabrics, which can be wiped with a damp cloth if necessary. Avoid exposing the metal parts of automated and hand-operated blinds to water and detergent whenever possible.
