What is the difference between a curtain and a Paoma magnetic blind?

The curtain is the simplified version of the blind. The curtain has no folds and it just has magnets in the centre and at the bottom. While the blind has pleats and magnets all along (between 8 and 14 for a roman blind look). Both have the same magnetic rod which is attached with velcro.


How to install the curtains and/or blinds after the reception?

Simply unroll the curtain and/or blind and install the magnetic rod over the window moulding.


Can I put a magnetic blind on a wooden door?

About the solar shades:

What is the difference between a fixed and a roller screen?

The fixed shade has a magnetic rod at the top and bottom. This means that it cannot be rolled up. You will be able to see outside but with a relative privacy to the chosen opacity percentage.

The roller solar shade can be rolled up manually and attached with the magnets on the back.
