Classic Pleated Blinds
Quite simply Classic Pleated Blinds are the cheapest option for simple blinds in a conservatory, as sold by the major UK budget house blinds specialist.
Since a well-known house blind specialist started selling "conservatory blinds" they have used the cheapest blind system with the cheapest fabrics, using the cheapest possible blind layout and the very cheapest subcontract fitting.
Despite the obvious clear difference in quality, customers find it hard to ignore the low prices, so we have reintroduced an updated version of our Classic Pleated Blinds.
These pleated blinds have been manufactured since the 1980's so the system and manufacturing tools are tried and tested. The only difference to the original Classic system is that it has a basic lay-flat cord integrated into the fabric to hold it flatter when retracted.
Only really suited for very wide blinds and for simpler shapes, it is possible to manufacture these blinds up to 2m wide (6' 6") but they required a much wider top apex (min. 100-500mm).
As you would expect with such cheap pleated blinds, they are not washable and cannot be easily removed as they have a fixed tension operating system. Similarly, the supporting wires on roof blinds may need to be retensioned over time, as they stretch slightly.
Classic Pleated Blinds are only available with a subcontract fitting service (the same one that fits all of the blinds for online retailers) so your labour guarantee is limited to just 1 year (like all other retailers).
Despite not being particularly suited to conservatories, these blinds are sold by most other companies, so we also offer Classic Pleated Blinds as a budget alternative where you can save up to 50% off our purpose designed pleated blinds.
Process from start to finish was very good. The initial quote was comparable and the salesman did not "put down" other companies which was refreshing as concentrated on own products.
On the day of fitting the fitter was late - not his fault as a huge hole had appeared in M25 and he had to take an alternative route. The office kept me informed as to his arrival. Fitter was tidy and clear explanation given as to how the roof blind worked, cleaning process and so on. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering blinds!
It's the details that matter. Whether it's the way our blinds fit complex shapes or that we offer unique blinds for every pane.
We spend more on R&D than any other conservatory blind manufacturer. Every component we use is purpose designed.
Because we love what we do, and love our products. Because our staff work for us, and not for the commission.
No pressure sales, inflated prices or fake discounts - just honest, helpful advice.
