Free-Hanging Pleated Blinds

Honeycomb pleated blinds for yachts, cruiseliners and ferries…

Solarglide free hanging pleated blinds are available in manually operated forms or motorised. They act as a shading solution and are ideal for passenger areas on cruiseliners and ferries, as well as yachts and superyacht windows. This type of free-hanging blind is for square and rectangle windows (shaped pleated blinds are available on request). Our free-hanging pleated blinds consist of one single fabric type, either dimout or blackout.

What Is Honeycomb Pleated Technology?

Solarglide uses honeycomb pleated technology for glare reduction and to regulate thermal performance during the changing seasons. Solarglide’s honeycomb technology eliminates visible strings and holes that can normally be seen in standard pleated blinds. This is highly important if you’re wanting to have an attractive and sleek look on your vessel.

Why are pleated blinds important?

Mainly because the honeycomb free-hanging blind looks extremely aesthetically pleasing and is a true blackout blind, not just partially blackout.

The honeycomb free-hanging blind will glide up and down the windows of your yacht, superyacht, or ferry with ease, and have the added benefits of child safety. They can be manually operated by a centre pull handle or controlled automatically by remote control or wall switch. With Solarglide you can select whichever option is the best for you.

The honeycomb free-hanging blinds are also available in hardwired or battery-operated motorised systems in a plethora of twelve fabric colours (see below colour range)

What are free-hanging pleated blinds?

A pleated blind is made with a series of concertina folds that stretch out evenly across the window opening. A lightweight, high-quality, blind that is easy to operate and can be set at any level on the window. When not in use, the blind can be stacked at the top or bottom of the window without restricting the external viewpoint.

Pleated blinds have many features and come in various forms, which suit most customers needs. Below we have outlined the features of the free-handing pleated blinds and the different variations they come in.
