Product Details

Product Description

The Classic Pleated Shade from American Blinds blends elegant sophistication, versatility, and durable operation into a beautiful statement piece for your windows.

Stately enough for a dignified office setting and easy-going enough for a casual family room, this shade will impress in any setting. Complete with durable, color coordinated aluminum headrails and bottom rails, you’ll find several options to meet your every need.

Select from a pallet of neutral and contemporary fabrics in 1” and 2” pleat sizes with the option to add fabric liners. The shades alone will block some light and offer some privacy, but privacy or room darkening liners will add more control depending on your needs.

All 1” pleated shades come with the option of choosing between a standard pleat or our deluxe pleat that includes an additional cord and back ladder support loops guaranteed to keep the pleats aligned. All 2” fabric choices come standard with deluxe pleats included. All optional fabric liners are neutral to the street for a uniform look.

The Classic Pleated Shade also offers several lift options including standard cord lifts, cordless lifts, continuous cord loops, and the EasyView motorized lift that can control your shades at the touch of a button from up to 65 feet away. The EasyView motorized system can operate multiple window treatments simultaneously or individually and provides easy operation for tall or hard to reach windows – select between a reloadable battery wand or a plug-in power source with 72” cord.

For larger or wider windows, we recommend the continuous cord loop lift over the standard corded lift. Room darkening liners are not available with the cordless lift option.
