A blinding solution –

Tensioned pleated blind systems

Tensioned pleated blinds are very easy to move thanks to an attractively shaped handle right on the operating rail. These blinds are installed directly in the window rabbet or on the casement at operating height.

System bracing provides the necessary grip and enables the blind to be secured at any position you like. Free-hanging systems are operated by means of a chain or cord pull. The two most popular types of pleated blinds for straight window shapes are the VS1 and VS2 models.

Look 2017

„Passion“ – Colourful and exclusive!

Six exciting designs feature cheerful colour schemes gently evolving on white. Most of the six new designs are exclusive. Pattern repeats can be matched for adjacent windows on request.

„Powder Pink“ – Delicate and gleaming

Fans of classically modern interior design are bound to find the perfect favourite for their home: Delicate colours and gleaming shimmers unite into impressive and unusual combinations that are sophisticatedly subdued.

„Evergreen“ – Where romance meets nature!

A vibrant leaf motif featuring shades of green and pink brings nature that little bit closer, creating an effect that is both refreshing and soothing.


The broad palette of block colours, from warm earthy tones through to finely graded nude and white shades, means you are certain to find exactly the colour you want. When it comes to prints, floral and graphic designs are currently leading the trends. They mix in fun, bright colours for a striking effect. New pebble dash prints are cool and trendy while flowery designs have a dreamy, more romantic look. The graphic motifs in the new burn-out designs are very reminiscent of pixels. Further highlights include three-dimensional fabrics, new Shirley designs and fine, web-style fabrics, which are complemented by new colours like Mustard Yellow, Olive Green, Copper and chic shades of brown. Below you will find the 14 fabrics in our pleated blind collection:

Pleated blind widths

KADECO pleated blinds are resistant to dust and dirt thanks to the special coating that is applied to both sides. For tensioned pleated blind systems, we offer pleats in widths of 20 mm.

Special shapes

Thanks to a wide range of special designs and operating variants, KADECO can provide the perfect solution for almost every window situation. Whether you want to install blinds in a conservatory, under the gable, in rooflights or the ceiling area, the wide range of operating and drive variants provide optimum privacy screens and sun protection, even in confined areas.

Tensioned special designs offer solutions for practically any type of window, from trapezoidal right through to hexagonal shapes. Fabric beading that is worked into the rail profi les as an extra special touch underlines the high-quality appearance of these blinds. The system bracing and profi le guide are specially adapted to the size and shape of the window in question. Fixed clamping cords support the fabric on the diagonal. The fabric can be pushed together into a stack along the system‘s longest side. An attractively shaped handle is used to move these systems.

Focus on...
Off the wall – the solution for your rooflights

KADECO pleated blinds can be used universally on all standard types of rooflight. Bracing wires on the side guide the systems safely in the slope. There are three basic types, just like for the tensioned pleated blinds. These are manufactured with either one operating rail (DF10), with two operating rails (DF20), or with two operating rails and two different materials (DF30). The Elegance version (DFE10, 20, 30) can be easily flush-mounted by means of side rails and its attractively shaped cassette provides the optimum finishing touch.


Two in once

The pleated blind types VS3 and DF30 offer a special function. Two different materials are combined and tensioned in one system, enabling you to achieve a blind that offers decorative sun protection and blackout features in perfect harmony. Stacking can be either together at the top or separate at the top and bottom.
With the blackout materials from the honeycomb pleated blinds collection in particular, this allows you to achieve exceptional results, for example, in the bedroom. As the cords for tensioning run on the inside of the honeycomb material, you cannot see any dots of light at the punches unlike with normal pleated blinds.
We‘ve got you covered – pleated blinds for your conservatory
Specific thermal conditions prevail in conservatories or under glass roofs. That‘s why ceiling systems, which are easy to operate by operating rod, crank or electric drive, are particularly suited to optimising the room temperature. The pearlescent finishes or aluminium coatings on the back of the pleated blinds have extremely high reflection values and ensure that the entire room stays cool, not just the ceiling area. This allows you to make significant energy cost savings for air conditioning in the summer.
Sticks to its promise – the practical adhesive kit

KADECO‘s new adhesive kit allows easy installation of pleated and Roman blinds right onto the window pane. The adhesive system with its two made-to-measure aluminium side profiles is the perfect solution, especially where screw fastening is not wanted or possible such as in rented flats, for example.

The special adhesive satisfies the stringent requirements for UV and temperature resistance and guarantees permanent adhesion of the pleated blind system. The adhesive kit comes off without trace, of course.

The benefits:

  • No damage to the window elements
  • Perfectly suited for modern glazing with shallow rabbets  
  • Reduces light incidence from the side
  • Satisfies the required minimum clearance to the glass
  • The adhesive strip comes off without trace
