Cord Operated Pleated Side Blinds

Freehanging (F) - Freehanging blinds work like most other type of blinds. They are fixed at the top to brackets and the fabric hangs beneath, operated by a stylish cordlock that can be operated easily from any angle without causing wear and tear on the cords, as you pull or release the cord the blind can be set to any desired position. When the blind is open the cords would be at their longest and so we fix the pull end into the endcap of the moving rail to avoid unsightly tangles of cord dangling unnecessarily. Freehanging blinds are available in the following versions:

F1 blind
F3 blind
F4 blind
FE blind

F1 - our standard cord operated freehanging blind available up to widths of 2400mm. Can have steel side guide wires if required.

F3 - a cord operated day/ night blind with two cordlocks incorporated into one blind operating two different fabrics.

Fslope - our cord operated shaped blind made especially for gabled windows. Sometimes called a fan pleat or crocodile's smile. F slope freehanging blinds are perfect for gable fronted conservatories or the sides of lean to conservatories. These cord operated blinds pull up tightly along the sloping side leaving all glass un obscured by the unsightly wires of a standard roof blind as fitted by our competitors in this application.

F4 - a freehanging blind operated by a continuous loop of chain which never gets longer or shorter as you pull the blind up and down. This is a heavier duty means of operation best suited to commercial and large domestic applications.

FE - a motorised version of an F1. Our FE motorised pleated blinds use Somfy motors and controls and can be remotely operated or linked in to any home automation system and carry a five year warranty.

Tension shoe fixing
The Tension shoe can also be used as a fixing for steel side guide wires which help to stop blinds from flapping in the wind or allow freehanging blinds to be used at a slight incline.
Patented cordlock
Exclusive patented cordlock allowing cords to be pulled from nearly any angle without wear and tear on cords.
Continuous chain loop blind
Continuous chain loop F4 blind utilises the components and headrail of our motorised FE blind but is still pulled up and down by a sturdy plastic ball chain.

British Blind Company Tip:
Add steel side guide wires to your freehanging blinds when wanting to restrict blinds from blowing in the wind.
