There’s a lot to love about our pleated blinds, particularly if you are into saving energy and adding more insulation to your home and office. Pleated blinds we offer are made using the fabrics and components from one of the best manufacturers in the world – Cosiflor (Germany). As we all know, Germans are really good when it comes to saving energy (you might’ve heard about passive houses, that are currently taking off here in NZ as well – this is a German concept).
Pleated blinds are a perfect solution for customers who are looking for an energy efficient window treatment solution.
Pleated blinds are especially great for a solution for side blinds, roof blinds and conservatory blinds. As some of the systems are pre-tensioned and have guide wires on the sides – these blinds are a perfect solution for conservatory windows or any locations that require the blinds to be tensioned – this prevents the blinds from rattling in the wind and hitting the window.

Pleated blinds are very easy to clean and care for – our Cosiflor pleated blinds can be washed in a solution of warm water (30 degrees max) and a mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly, push the fabric into its stack and carefully squeeze the water out. After that, just hang the blind in a closed position and pull it up/down several times while it’s drying.

Please make sure to keep the metal parts of automated and crank operated blinds away from water and detergent where possible.
