We are delivering darkness on-demand with the launch of a new and exclusive blackout system for pleated integral blinds.


The ScreenLine® pleated blackout blinds sit neatly inside Uni-Blind® sealed units to ensure complete shading from the sun and other light sources such as streetlights and passing vehicles. Complete privacy and the exclusion of external light are particularly welcome in environments such as bedrooms, children’s nurseries and home cinema rooms as well as commercial applications including laboratories, hotel rooms and museums.


With no vertical cords running down the blind, no light can leak through tiny gaps when in the closed position, and there are no perimeter gaps either. The pleated blackout blinds are available in a choice of eight colour options: white, alabaster, cocoa, grey sheen, black, anthracite grey, dove grey and grey ridge. The blackout blinds are available for 20mm cavities, using the manual corded C System or slider control S System, and can cover a glazed area of 2 sq metres (2200mm max height x 1500mm max width).


Ian Short, managing director said: “We all value our privacy and also know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep. The new pleated blackout system can provide these solutions.  The pleated blind’s material also delivers excellent thermal performance, reflecting excessive heat and helping to keep rooms cool in the height of summer.


“We’re really excited to work with ScreenLine® in Italy to bring this product exclusively to the UK for fabricators and installers to add to their portfolio of added value products. It’s perfect timing as we come into the spring and summer with lighter nights and brighter days. The new blackout system is the perfect solution for light sleepers seeking an uninterrupted night’s sleep and shift workers who may need to sleep during the day, or for any room where unwanted light can cause a nuisance or disruption. I’m sure they’ll be a hugely popular product.”
