At Appeal Home Shading, we are celebrating a milestone birthday – back in 1988, we launched as Appeal Conservatory Blinds, specialising in our signature product: Original French Pinoleum bespoke blinds. Thirty years on, they remain one of our most popular products – with good reason.
Highly distinctive and naturally beautiful, Original French Pinoleum Conservatory Blinds – exclusive to Appeal – represent the epitome of elegance in home shading. Delicate strips of carefully selected wood reeds, from a sustainable source, are hand-woven by expert craftsmen in France to construct the Pinoleum fabric. That is then laser-cut to the exact, carefully calibrated measurements taken by our design consultant in your home. As Pinoleum is crafted from the lightest quality reed, this minimises the need for support wires in the roof. Using fewer wires gives the blinds a neater and more uniform appearance without sagging. Meanwhile, specially developed polyester stitching and acrylic edging also increases longevity.
The effect of Original French Pinoleum is to transform the sometimes harsh glare of the sun into a soft, dappled light, creating a relaxing ambience all year round and providing shade and protection with a view – increasing your privacy but also providing a view of blue skies. It also protects your plants and furniture by controlling room temperature and reducing the harmful effect of the sun’s UV rays.
As with all Appeal blinds and shutters for conservatories and interiors, Original French Pinoleum is available in a wide spectrum of shades – and can be exactly colour-matched to your existing decor. You can also choose between operating systems – manual or motorised with remote control. It is a truly tailor-made service.
Appeal expertise: 30 years of technical innovation
At Appeal Home Shading, we have consistently introduced game-changing technology to improve our products – whether it be the development of Honeycomb Energy Saver blinds (which provide an 80% thermal barrier) to transform cold spaces into cosy rooms; or the launch of Haus awnings, with intelligent weather sensors which retract the awning in high winds.
In recent years Appeal’s ULTRA Smart powered blinds for windows have won awards for hi-tech innovation. And now, the launch of ULTRA Plus takes this clever system even further by giving you total control over your blinds from your smartphone or tablet, wherever you are in the world.
The easy-to-use app raises and lowers your Appeal ULTRA blinds, individually or in customised scenarios. There are many benefits:
|•||Instantly increase the insulation in your home, reducing fuel bills|
|•||Come home to the perfect ambience|
|•||Protect furniture from UV rays from unexpected bright sunshine|
|•||Increase security – put off potential burglars with unpredictable activity.|
ULTRA Smart Blinds are driven by a motor, discreetly hidden behind the headrail and powered by easily rechargeable batteries which give 12 months usage under normal conditions. There is no need for wiring to the mains, nor for dangling cords. Choose from Roller, Pleated or Roman blinds and from over 400 fabrics. Add Smart plugs or Philips Hue bulbs and the ULTRA Plus app will give you control over lighting and blinds together, to fine-tune your home ambience and improve security.
