Pleated Blind Fabrics
The Premium Diffuse range offers high levels of insulation and durability. It is a heavy touch material ideal for privacy and winter heat retention. Although not the best choice for solar and heat reflection these are more hard wearing than the Somerton fabrics and could go anywhere in the home or conservatory effectively.
The Reflex range offers high levels of solar heat and glare control without compromising on light. It is a soft plain material with a pearlised reflective coating that reflects the direct heat and glare out of the room whilst also offering some winter insulation. It would be suitable for both roof and window blinds. Other fabric will perform to the same levels but Reflex has a different texture and some more varied colours in the range.
The Madrid SPC range offers high levels of solar heat and glare control without compromising on light. It is a patterned material with a pearlised reflective coating that reflects the direct heat and glare out of the room whilst also offering some winter insulation. It would be suitable for both roof and window blinds but often we recommend to have patterns on the windows and plain material in the roof.
The Festival Blackout range provides not only a blackout lining but also offers high levels of insulation due to the thickness of the material, a wipeable coating, and is resistant to insect stings and stains. Due to the weight of the material it is not advised for large conservatory roofs but would be excellent for rooms you want to cut natural light out of, to warm rooms up in winter and for bathrooms where moisture and privacy can be a problem.
The Cellular range consists of a translucent fabric (Causeway) and a blackout (Twilight). These come in a honeycomb pleat which hides holes and cord that are seen in a standard pleated material blind. They are by far the best fabrics at keeping a room cool in summer and warm in winter, with excellent energy saving qualities.
These fabrics are not currently available for skylights or roofs. They are also restricted to maximum width of 1000mm.
