What colour wires should I use for pleated roof blinds?

The answer depends on what colour rails you have selected, the colour of your fabric and the colour of your conservatory.

In general terms; we normally recommend grey silicone impregnated stainless steel micro-cables for darker coloured fabrics and brown coloured conservatories, with white micro-cables for pale coloured fabrics in light-coloured conservatories.

Black micro-cables are also available but are rarely used, except on black fabrics.

Even this is not a complete answer as there are so many variables. Always seek our advice and, if necessary, we can even create a small sample fabric with cord/micro-cable combination for you to see beforehand.

But beware; looking at a small sample can be misleading – you need to envisage it in a much larger scale where the proportion of fabric is so much greater than on a small sample, where the micro-cables seem more obvious than they really are.

We always discuss this with you at survey and confirm the colour selected.
