Homeowners looking to dampen the bright light of summer evenings and early mornings have a new option open to them this year with the recently launched Uni-Blinds' pleated, blackout integral blind.

Suitable for windows and doors in rooms such as bedrooms, cinema rooms and children’s nurseries, the pleated blackout integral blind system from Morley Glass is attracting strong interest among homeowners and installers.


Full darkness

This new integrated blind option provides an effective solution for rooms affected by unwanted daylight. Its ‘darkness on demand’ capability is provided through a design that prevents light bleed around the edges, as well as along the cords – a common area for light to leak through.



With eight colours available and a choice of control systems including a cordless magnetic slider, the Uni-Blind pleated blackout system provides a shading and privacy solution to suit most needs. They can be used in all types of windows and doors, subject to maximum and minimum sizes.



Like all Uni-Blinds, the pleated blackout is made to order by Morley Glass at its state of the art factory in Leeds and delivered nationwide to customers in as little as 10 days.


 “We know through feedback from our installers that many homeowners say they would benefit from a blackout blind in specific rooms. For example, those who work shifts and have to sleep during the day or parents with young children – they can create a better sleeping environment with a blackout blind.”

Suitable for different IGUs

“That’s why we developed the Uni-Blinds pleated blackout integral blind with Pellini to extend our range. It means that homeowners who want to complete their new windows or doors with integrated blinds – or upgrade their existing windows – do not need to compromise to make their internal spaces comfortable,” adds Morley Glass’ Short.

The Uni-Blinds pleated blackout is suitable for a range of double-glazed unit thicknesses, including an a 20mm cavity exclusively from Morley Glass. Each unit also benefits from a bespoke warm edge spacer bar to guarantee excellent thermal performance.


Short adds

“For any installer looking to expand what they offer to homeowners and gain a competitive edge, our pleated blackout Uni-Blinds offer a superb product range to consider. All our integral blinds units are easy to fit. We provide nationwide support to help our customers deliver the right installation every time.”
