In Belgium, pleated blinds are an undervalued type of window covering. We can say that, because we see that in Germany and The Netherlands the pleated blind is the compeer of the roller blinds what considers the popularity and volume. Typically for a pleated blind is the elegance of the profile. These are very tiny en therefore perfectly for mounting in the window opening. Also for special shapes and mounting in a dome window, a pleated blind might be the most preferred solution. There are pleated blinds in many variants.

This is a very high quality development, since it has been scientifically proven that this is the most energy saving type of window decoration.
