Luxaflex says that its blinds can filter light and save you energy, all under a five year guarantee

Luxaflex is the perfect choice for truly exceptional, fully customised and reliable window coverings. With over 60 years experience, Luxaflex is committed to providing an unrivalled selection of products, fabrics and materials all covered by a five year guarantee.

Duette Shades are designed to control light and privacy as desired, and are available in a wide assortment of beautiful fabrics, rich structures and colours in three transparencies. They give a beautiful pleat pattern to windows of various shapes, with three pleat widths available developed for specific window sizes. 25mm is a great choice for smaller sized windows as for instance turn and tilt and roof windows, 32mm looks sophisticated on medium and large sized windows whilst 64mm is specifically designed for large to extra large windows.

The Duette Batiste fabric range has an extended colour program that allows you to hang the same colour in every room of your home and be flexible with the transparency. Depending on the amount of privacy that you desire and the amount of incoming light you want, you can choose a different transparency in every room. A beautiful atmosphere is created by hanging opaque and transparent Duette Shades of the same colour and fabric in a room. Duo Tone fabrics allow you to choose different colours on the interior side while retaining a uniform colour on the exterior side. Whilst a Full Tone fabric is the right choice if you prefer a colour that matches or contrasts with your outside window frames or building.

Easy and comfortable to operate they offer a solution for diverse window shapes, several models are available including Day & Night and Top Down/Bottom Up. Special operating options include the revolutionary Luxaflex SmartCord which uses a retractable cord simple to operate and designed to provide optimal comfort. The constant cord length means that you will no longer have to put up with long dangling cords. The LiteRise operating system is cordless and easy to operate via the bottom rail handle allowing you to position it at any height you like. Both of these innovative operating systems are designed with safety in mind and are child and pet safe.

Sustainability was a key factor in the production of this collection. Luxaflex is contributing to a sustainable and healthy environment by the careful selection of raw materials and methods of production, as well as reusing fabrics wherever possible. The Eternity fabric which is made from 40% polyester waste accentuates this. Eternity is available in a 25mm pleat width.
Architella is a cell-in-cell construction that offers the famous Duette honeycomb structure in three insulating air layers instead of one. This gives better insulation and allows the light to be diffused softly creating a lovely ambiance.

Energy Saving
To some degree all Luxaflex window coverings contribute to energy efficiency however the Duette Shades collection is the most effective. Without window coverings 72% of solar heat passes through double glazing Duette Shades reduce this amount by up to 78%. Heat loss at the window can be reduced up to 60% single glazing, 46% double glazing and 25% HR++ Glazing. Duette Shades feature a unique honeycomb construction that makes them soft, durable, and highly energy efficient. The honeycomb design works in a similar way to double glazing, by trapping the warm air in the pockets of the fabric. This minimizes heat loss through your window, reducing the amount of energy needed to heat your home. The shades built-in insulating characteristics help keep the heat out in summer and the warmth in during winter. Furthermore Duette Shades are perfect for rooms where the acoustics are important, tangibly improving acoustics by absorbing noise.
