If you have no shutters on your windows or on terrace and balcony doors, you have to either retrofit the shutters or use other alternatives to darken your rooms. Curtains are often not opaque enough, cannot be installed due to structural conditions or are only available as custom-made items in the appropriate size. Quite a few people have had their own experiences with the mechanism of classic roller blinds, and folding shutters are out of the question, as the windows have to be opened every time to operate them. There are still pleated blinds, which are mounted directly on the inside of the window on the glazing beads or on the window frame and can be operated effortlessly. They can be attached quickly and are available in numerous variants and sizes, also suitable for non-standardized windows.

By installing a pleated blind on the inside of your window, you prevent prying eyes from outside into your premises. Nevertheless, you can vary the incidence of light so that you have enough daylight to work, for example. You can also choose between translucent and opaque versions. Depending on the design, a pleated blind can offer effective UV protection in addition to the privacy screen and thus protect your interior from fading due to too much direct sunlight. Last but not least, if you choose a suitable pleated blind, you can also completely darken your rooms if necessary – in this case the pleated blind represents a replacement for a roller shutter.
