Why order samples?

We always recommend ordering samples to ensure you fall in love with the fabric or slat. Screen resolution and brightness settings vary and you may find some fabrics look a little different in real life to how they appear on a screen. You can hold a sample in your hands, feel the fabrics, the weave and see the opacity before your very eyes, something you can’t recreate online.

We’ve made every effort to accurately portray the fabric realistically, but you can never be too careful.

We often dispatch them the same day you place your order (and most certainly by the next working day if you order after hours or on the weekend).

How to Measure

How to Measure

Measuring your BiFold doors for blinds is super easy. Sit tight, here's a quick guide to help you along your way:

When you look at the window, you’ll see a rubber seal that runs all the way around the glass. This is called a gasket. Take a credit card and push the card’s corner into the gasket to check that you are able to get the blind’s tab under it. 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 bifold door blinds.

You will need to measure the visible glass: the width from the inside part of the window where the gasket ends on one side to where the gasket ends on the other – so just measure the visible glass area.

Our pleated bifold door blinds are held up by their own tension and therefore require relatively strong and rigid rubber gaskets to hold them in place. If your gaskets are quite soft and pliable (or if it’s a bit squishy), then there is a chance the pleated bifold door blind won’t be properly supported and can drop. If this is the case for your gasket or you’re not sure, get in touch with our helpful team who can discuss the options available.

Now repeat the method on the length of the window, again measuring up to the rubber gasket. Enter in your measurements above in the Width and Drop boxes. If you think this all sounds too easy to be true, take a look at our video below and you'll see they really are easy-peasy window squeegee!

 

Child Safety

Child Safety

Ensuring our products are child safe is a priority for all of us at DotcomBlinds. As a result, our blinds are child safe by design, with built-in safety mechanisms to help reduce the risk of an accident.

Pleated BiFold door blinds have no chains or cords to operate the blind and the cords used within the blind are internal, with capability for any slack to be gathered up under the blind and tucked out of sight.

If you have any questions around child safety and our blinds, please do not hesitate to get in touch, we're always happy to help.

The Geeky Stuff!

Pleated Blind Technical Details

The pleated fabric is held at the top by a headrail which is fitted by sliding the tabs under the rubber gasket. The bottom bar is also attached by tabs sliding under the rubber gasket. The headrail, along with the bottom bar and the raise/lower bar are all made from white painted metal.

• The fixing tabs are 10mm long.
• The headrail dimensions are: 14mm high x 20mm thick
• The bottom bar dimensions are: 14mm high x 20mm thick
• The raise/lower bar dimensions are: 14mm high x 20mm thick and the finger tab protrudes 17mm

The blind has cords that are attached to bottom and to the raise/lower bar, which gathers it in and keeps tension as it is drawn. The tension of the cord can be adjusted in the bottom bar.

Our pleated blinds are held up by their own tension and therefore require relatively strong and rigid rubber gaskets to hold them in place. If your gaskets are quite soft and pliable (or if it’s a bit squishy), then there is a chance the pleated blind won’t be properly supported and can drop. If this is the case for your gasket or you’re not sure, get in touch with our helpful team who can discuss the options available.

How to Install

How to Install

You won't believe how easy it is to install these pleated blinds. It’s simply a case of sliding the headrail into the top of the window with the tabs slotting under the rubber gasket, and then repeating it for the bottom bar. No screws, drilling or mess – watch the video below to see for yourself!

3 Year Warranty

3 Year Warranty

A blind from DotcomBlinds is made to the highest standards, designed to provide you with years of service and shade. 
In fact, we’re so confident and proud of our blinds, we offer a 3 year warranty on all our blinds. This is one of the longest warranties available and a clear sign of the quality of our blinds.

Obviously, there are a few exclusions:
✖ Damage caused by poor installation/not following fitting instructions (don’t worry, installation is easy, read this.)
✖ Misuse or Failing to maintain the blind
✖ General wear and tear and fading (these blinds are exposed to very intense UV rays)
✖ Alteration to the blind
✖ Exposure to the elements or fitted in an unsuitable location (these are indoor blinds!)

However, if your blind stops functioning for any reasons other than those listed above, get in touch. Our warranty covers:
Manufacturing defects
Fabric/slat colour fading within a year
Mechanical malfunction
2 year warranty on battery motors used in electric roller blinds

So, in summary, avoid grossly mistreating your blind, show it a little TLC every so often and don’t use it in ways it wasn’t intended. If you do all those things and something goes wrong with the blind, you’re golden – we’ve got you covered and we’ll and repair or replace it free of charge.

Features

Features

Moisture Resistant
Moisture resistant blinds do not absorb or retain water, meaning they will not rot when exposed to damp conditions. Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.

Wipe Clean
Super easy to clean and perfect for busy households, simply wipe with a cloth to keep these blinds look spick-and-span!

Child Safe
All our blinds come with child safe features as standard but some are inherently more child safe due to the deliberate removal of chains and cords.

Solar Reflective
Solar reflective blinds bounce the sun's rays back through the window, keeping those furniture-damaging UV rays at bay.

Fabric Fronted Blackout
This fabric has a patterned or coloured fabric front with a plastic backing, which blocks out sunlight and looks great at the same time.
