The benefits of Pleated blinds, Duette blinds, Cellular blinds and Thermal blinds

Swapping slats for beautiful folded fabric, pleated blinds (often referred to as thermal blinds or cellular blinds) are an elegant and versatile take on classic venetian blinds. With their unique honeycomb structure, Thermal blinds give you better control of the temperature of your home, helping you stay cooler in summer and warmer through the winter. 

Pleated blinds combine soft, intricately folded concertina fabric with many different operating systems, from free-hanging to tensioned or even remote controlled. Neat and compact, this type of blind works well with most windows and interior styles, making them ideal for skylights, conservatories and patio doors.

Low maintenance pleated blinds

Pleated, thermal and Cellular blinds are a low maintenance solution, ideal for conservatories or sun rooms where sill space may be at a premium, especially when utilised in a Perfect Fit or Intu variant – both of these options are totally child safe and are operated without the need for unsightly cords or operating wands. Pleated blinds are also a great choice if you’re looking for an energy saving blind. The narrowly folded fabric of pleated blinds is very good at keeping heat in and draughts out, which can help to reduce your energy bills. For extra temperature control choose a honeycomb or solar protective fabric, or order in blackout fabric to block out daylight in bedrooms and nurseries. And, for particularly tight spaces or uPVC windows, pair with our Perfect Fit frames.

Pleated blinds can be manufactured to open in numerous ways – top to bottom, bottom to top or as a floating top and bottom rail enabling you to choose whether to shade the top or bottom of your window as the mood takes you.

A wide range of pleated blinds

Available as: Perfect Fit blinds, Intu blinds, Freehanging blinds, Conservatory Blinds and Motorised blinds

Duette Blinds

The unique design of Duette blinds makes them a number one choice for effective insulation, excellent privacy and easy light control. Here at North East Shutters, we stock and install a variety of Duette blinds, allowing you to perfectly complement them with your interior decor.

Duette blinds are recognisable by their distinctive cellular, or ‘honeycomb’ appearance. The tubes of air formed by this structure offer insulating properties, helping to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. In addition, their thickness means that they grant your home total privacy when lowered.

This feature also means that light levels can be completely controlled, helping you regulate temperature and brightness in your home. Available in free-hanging tensioned, smart cord, LiteRise and motorised.

Duette blinds are ideal for:

  • Insulation of the home: Ensuring that your home is insulated properly can result in savings on your energy bills, which in turn, helps the planet.
  • Light and privacy: Block out unwanted sunlight or prying eyes with Duette blinds. The effectiveness of this feature will depend on the type of material you select.
  • Space saving: When raised, Duette blinds retreat and ‘stack’ completely, making them easy to stow away and hide

Products in our range that can use pleated blinds are Perfect-fit blinds, Intu blinds and Velux blinds.

Child safety

Child safety is paramount at North East Shutters. All of our shutters, awnings and blinds are child safe. As affiliate members of the BBSA (British Blinds and Shutters Association), our products comply with all UK regulations (EN 13120), making our blinds child safe. These safety standards have been tested for years, so you can buy with confidence and peace of mind.

Our material, workshop and installation supply chain is returning to normal. In normal circumstances, orders would normally be fulfilled in 7-10 working days. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this has increased, however we strive to fit your blinds and shutters in as timely manner as possible.

Pricing

We are often asked, how much do blinds cost? Due to the bespoke nature of our business, all of our products are priced individually. Made to measure blinds rely on a number of factors including window dimensions, style, fabrics and finishes — each consideration having an effect on the price. We are committed to be competitive against all other quotes and are confident that we offer better value for money than the traditional solutions on the market.

I contacted the company by email and had a very quick response from Lee and he arranged to call at my house the following day to see if he could repair my blind. I had been told by the original supplier that they couldn't repair or replace and I would need to order new blinds (as this was part of a 3 set). Lee fixed my blind within 30 minutes and I'm delighted. Thank you Lee, and I would have no hesitate in using the company again or recommending to others.
