Which rooms are better to use roller blinds, and when is it better to use pleated shutter? The fundamental difference between roller blinds and pleated blinds lies in the different fabrics. The fabric for roller blinds is flat and the fabric for pleated shutters is a pleat every 2 cm. Other differences are the type of assembly and the type of use. Roller blinds are always mounted on top of the sash and unfold downwards by gravity. The shading direction of the pleated shutter is always the same as that of the roller blind, and the amount of light is controlled by stretching the blades.
Install pleated shutters to cover and uncover glass from the top and bottom, maintaining any degree of window coverage. Thus, the pleats can cover the bottom of the window, the middle, the top of the window or the entire pane. The installation methods of roller blinds and pleated blinds are completely different. The roller blind has a flat structure with fabric wrapped around aluminum tubes. Pleated shutters feature a folded fabric, one part of which must always fit over the glass.
