Why Pleated Window Shades? Softer aesthetic with comparable energy controls

Fabric pleated shades offer a textured aesthetic look while still delivering high standards of energy control and daylight management. Pleated window shades will:

  • Add a dimension of texture to a room
  • Offer options for cordless lift system and motorized technology
  • Weigh less than cellular shades

Your end-users want solutions that save them money and energy. With SWFcontract, you’ll be the one who provides them.
