Product Description
Product Description

The Prestige Grey Pleated BiFold Door Blind boasts a quick and easy installation coupled with stylish good looks whilst maintaining a robust and well-supported shading system. The Grey semi-transparent fabric provides fantastic shading opportunities as well as increased thermal and solar reflective benefits thanks to the pleated fabric. Each pleated creates an individual pocket of air which helps with insulation. This dimout pleated fabric allows light to pass through but it is diffused, much like a lampshade, meaning piercing beams of light are blocked and you can enjoy a warming glow instead.

The Prestige hardware is available in either White, Black or Anthracite. The adhesive strips that run vertically down the sides of the glass are colour matched to the hardware, ensuring a seamless and clean looking finish. The headrail and bottom bar are held in place using the unique clic-fit fixing method, which requires no screws or drills. Simply slide the end tabs into place and click the headrail and bottom bar in to secure, ensuring a perfect fit every time.
Please read the "Geeky Stuff" section below for more information on the product dimensions and other technical specifications.

Prestige Bifold Door Blinds Technical Details

The Prestige Bifold Door Blinds consist of a headrail, a bottom bar and a bar attached to the fabric that is used to pull the fabric up and down. Running vertically down each side of the windowpane, next to the gaskets, are 2 self-adhesive strips that colour match the hardware. No screws are required, the blind is held in place by metal brackets that slide under the rubber gasket that runs around the windowpane. These blinds require a gasket depth of 17mm (from frame to glass).

The fabric is fixed to the headrail, meaning this blind is operated from a top-down only method. The fabric can be left at any point down the window thanks to the cords that run from top to bottom. The hardware comes white as standard but you are able to choose anthracite painted metal.

To hold the headrail in place at the top of the window, a self-adhesive strip is fitted to the glass vertically down the window. This strip is 15mm wide and 1mm thick and it is colour matched to the hardware in either white or anthracite.

The headrail and bottom bars measure 19.5mm deep and 15mm high and measure 32mm from glass to the front of the folded operating handle on the bar.

We allow a +/- 1-2mm tolerance on our window blind deductions when cutting.

Our honeycomb and pleated fabrics have an uncoloured reverse, meaning the back of the fabric (the side that faces out of the window) is white.

If you wish to know how much space the headrail and fabric will take up at the top of the window, you’ll first need to know the drop measurement. For every metre on the drop measurement, add 10mm. Take this and add it to 30mmm (the combined height of the top bar and pull down bar) and you’ll have a rough estimate for the size that will be covered when the blind is fully drawn up.

Selecting the Control Type
Selecting the Control Type

Our Prestige Blinds can be operated as either Single or Dual Control.

Single Control makes operating the blind super easy! You use one handle to effortlessly raise the fabric at the top and lower it down the glass. It's like magic! Single control has always been the traditional control method and is the perfect option if you’re somewhat of a traditionalist and require to control your blind top-down.

Now, let's talk about Dual Control, which takes things to a new level of awesomeness! With dual control, you have not one but two handles to play with. One handle lets you move the bottom of the fabric up and down the glass, while the second handle allows you to move the top of the fabric. It's like having a cool dance partner for your blind! Dual control is a game-changer when it comes to adjusting your blinds. It gives you the ultimate power to customize your privacy and shading preferences. So whether you want to let the sunshine in or create a cosy, shaded atmosphere, dual control has got you covered.

Ultimately, the best way to choose the right type of control is to consider your needs and preferences.

Care Instructions

Wipe clean with a damp cloth but do not rub the fabric vigorously or use chemicals. Never iron the fabric. Please ensure any window cleaning chemicals do not come into contact with the fabric and that the window has sufficient ventilation to present condensation spots. As such we do not take responsibility for any fabric damages caused by cleaning materials, excessive moisture or insect excrements.

How to Measure
How to Measure

How to Measure

Prestige Bifold door blinds are held in place by brackets that slide under the rubber gasket and are held against the glass. Take a look at the window. You’ll see a rubber seal that runs around the glass. This is called a gasket (some refer to it as a seal, either way, it’s the rubber “bit” located between the edge of your doors and the glass!)

Use a credit card or butter knife and slide it behind the gasket to check that you can get the blind’s tab under it. This is to replicate the thickness of the bracket used to install this blind. For these blinds to work correctly, you need a rubber gasket and not a foam gasket. Some gaskets are stuck down, and if this is the case, your window isn’t suitable for pleated blinds.

Mark on the card or knife where the gasket reaches and then remove it from the window. Measure from the edge of the card or knife to the mark. This distance needs to be at least 17mm for your window to be suitable. If it is not 17mm, we don’t recommend this type of blind for your window.

Step 1.


Slide a butter knife/credit card behind the rubber gasket.

 

Step 2.


Mark on the knife/card where it natually comes to a stop.
If you have a gasket that measures at least 17mm or more then the Prestige Bifold Door should be suitable for your doors.


Measure the width from the inside part of the window where the gasket ends on one side to where the gasket starts on the other. Repeat this for the top to the bottom too to get the drop measurement.
Please note we will make a 4mm overall deduction to the width of the blind to ensure the rivet is free to move and will not come into contact with the frame.

 

Step 3. Measure Width

Take two measurements of the width, at the top and the bottom of the window.
If there is any variation always use the shortest width to order your blinds. If the windows are particularly large you can take intermediate measurements to check.

Step 4. Measure Drop

Take three measurements of the window drop.
If there are any variations, then always use the longest measurement.
You must measure accurately and to the nearest millimetre to ensure a good fit.
How to Install
How to Install

When you first inspect your new blind please remember that as per the measuring instructions we will deduct 4mm from the width of the blind. This is to allow for free movement of the blind and is essential to the blinds operation. The side channels will compensate for the 4mm deduction.

Step 1 - Fit the brackets.

Fitting your Prestige blind couldn’t be easier...
Place the metal L-shaped bracket flat against the glass, push it towards the window frame ensuring it slides freely under the gasket, and do this for each corner.
Top Tip - A little dab of washing-up liquid can sometimes assist with this. Just be careful to make sure you clean any excess so not to mark the blinds.

Step 2 - Apply Side Profiles.

Position the strip so that the cutouts go either side of the brackets. Ensure it is positioned on the glass and tight up against the gasket (but not on the gasket). If this is not tight up against the gasket, it won’t impede the operation of the blind, but you may see the light bleeding around the edge of the window.

Please note: This strip should be fixed to the glass only once, and it is not designed to be removed and refitted multiple times. Therefore we recommend positioning the adhesive strip to the lugs prior to taking the backing tape off. Replacement strips can be purchased if required.

Step 3 - Install the Blind.

Align the head rail so that the brackets meet the slots on the back of the plastic end caps on the head rail. Push the head rail into place, ensuring it is securely attached to the brackets. Repeat this for the bottom bar. The spring under the bottom bar needs to be in the centre. The cords are intentionally long and should be tucked under the bottom bar. Do not cut them, they can help with tension adjustment if required.

How to operate the blind

Attach the plastic wand by hooking the wand onto the tilt mechanism on the venetian blind. Twist the wand to open and close the slats.

Troubleshooting

Our Prestige blinds function through tension in the cords, and this tension holds the fabric. All blinds come pre-tensioned, and you shouldn’t need to adjust it, but if you find that the fabric/slats aren’t being held in place and are dropping, you will need to adjust the tension.
To do this, locate the spring and cord held in the bottom bar. Use a pen to mark the cord close to the metal clamp with 2 screws. This will indicate how much you have adjusted the tension and allow you to reset it if you go too far.
Undo the screws and either increase or decrease the tension by 1 cm. Tighten the screw and check the blind and repeat as necessary. If the blind becomes too stiff to use, you have over-tensioned and need to release a small amount back.

This blind is made in the UK in one of DotcomBlinds’ UK factories. By purchasing a blind made right here in the UK you are helping to support the British manufacturing industry. Blinds made in the UK will typically have shorter lead times due to the fact they won’t need to be shipped internationally.

This blind features a dimout fabric, which will provide shade to a room without completely blocking out exterior light; helping to create a bright but shaded space. Dimout fabrics are ideal for living spaces in your home, filtering exterior light to provide shade and reduce glare while keeping the space bright during the day.

This “No-Drill” blind features our Pleated fabric, which will provide shade to your home’s interiors, diffusing the light much like a lampshade. Our pleated fabric is ideal for shading spaces, while still allowing some light to enter the space.

This blind features a plain fabric with a solid colour. Plain fabrics are incredibly versatile and can easily be matched to the existing decor in your home or add a fresh new colour to your windows. Be sure to order FREE fabric samples to get a feel for the look and feel of the fabric in person before making a purchase.

This “No-Drill” blind can be made with a Dual Control mechanism, which allows you to move the blind from the top and bottom sides of the blind to shade, allowing you to shade individual sections of your windows (unlike our Single Control option which is only “top-down”).
