A pleated blind consists of a length of permanently pleated fabric
attached to various head and bottom rail configurations and operating
in a concertina fashion to raise or lower the blind.

Pleated blinds are available in a variety of pleat depths the most
popular being 20mm and 25mm. Many pleated fabrics feature additional
coatings to improve their solar and optical performance the most
popular of which are specialist solar performance coatings and
