Duette blinds for bifold doors are a new approach in the UK, duette or pleated blinds have been installed for many years but only in relatively small widths, generally fitted to conservatory roofs and the odd small window. Duette blinds are huge in the USA and Australia for many reasons, mainly because of the thermal qualities the fabric can offer. They are fantastic at retaining heat especially useful for the UK market, they also reduce heat when we get those rare hot sunny days but these advantages also have an added benefit. They still allow light to filter through meaning you won’t loose that all important light airy feel you gained when you installed your bi-fold doors.
They are called Duette because you have two layers of fabric creating a honeycomb or cellular effect, this is key in helping to retain and reducing heat.
Deans are always looking for new and innovative ways to help with shading problems, bifold doors have been getting more and more popular over the last few years and we need more than one approach to shading that will work but also look stylish. We have now been able to make these bi fold duette blinds up to 3000mm wide with a drop of 5000mm, so we can cover up to three bi-fold doors with one single blind. Blinds of this width do need to be electric 240v as they are too big to raise and lower by hand. You can operate them either with remote control handset or wire free wall switch.
I think you will be surprised how good these blinds will look, they can be a similar colour to your bi fold doors or offer a splash of colour to make a statement.
