For over thirty years, we have taken pride in having the ‘original and the best’ honeycomb blind on the market.
The unique honeycomb structure of Luxaflex Duette Shades provides a contemporary striking look whilst providing efficient insulation by trapping air within the honeycomb cell. Easy to care for, there is a large selection of cell sizes and styles. Versatile design caters for arches, angles, and skylights. Exclusive to Luxaflex Window Fashions; Duette Architella Shades, featuring a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb structure for superior energy efficiency, which reduces heat loss in Winter and keeps your home cooler in Summer.
Still the market leader in honeycomb blinds, the Luxaflex® Duette® Shades series is unrivaled when it comes to elegant window coverings that keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.
Duette Shades - TrackGlide System
Designed for European-style Tilt-Turn windows, the TrackGlide® System with Duette Shades provides exceptional insulation, privacy and light control without restricting the full functionality of a Tilt & Turn window. The unobtrusive side tracks keep the shade in position regardless of whether the window is closed, swung open or tilted from the top.
Experience next level darkness with Duette LightLock Shades
Created to help you outsmart the sun and enjoy a better night’s sleep, Duette LightLock Shades combine the industry leading Duette Shades with the patented LightLock System to achieve unparalleled darkness.
Featuring a unique U-Shaped side channel designed to absorb, deflect and block incoming light from seeping through into the room. LightLock blends seamlessly into the window frame preventing light leakage that is inherent with all reveal mounted blockout blinds and is a perfect solution for bedrooms, nurseries and media rooms, where maximum darkness is required.
Total Blockout Solution
The Duette Shade Signature headrail has been cleverly designed to ensure minimal light gaps when paired with a blockout fabric, giving you a more complete blockout control which is perfect for bedrooms and media rooms.
Another important energy-related function of window coverings is to diffuse incoming sunlight to soften it and bring it deeper into a room. This function is called “daylighting.” In addition to reducing glare and improving visual comfort, daylighting can often save energy by reducing the need for electrical lighting.
The Quiet Achiever
Duette Shades make the perfect choice when looking at blinds for the bedroom or across your home including media rooms. In addition to their energy efficiency properties, the honeycomb technology also helps to reduce everyday sound energy as it can be absorbed within the cell by up to 52%*, dulling exterior noise but allowing light to enter your home.
*The scale for sound absorption is in a range from 0.00 to 1.00 where 1.00 means total, 100% total absorption of sound. The scale can be equated to percentages – for example a value of 0.35 would indicate approx. 35% sound absorption. Source: Hunter Douglas USA Reference Guide April 2010.
What Happens In Summer & Winter?
During winter there's an immediate reduction in radiant heat loss to the cold window glass, and people feel warmer. Here's how it works:
All people and objects give off and receive radiant heat. When significantly more is given off than they get back to cold glass, it can feel like a chilly draft, even if the window is tightly sealed. When people lose enough radiant heat to feel uncomfortable, they will typically turn up the thermostat, consuming energy resources and adding utility costs - but a well-insulating shade can counteract all this.
Similarly in Summer the reverse effect is seen. The pockets of air traps and blocks incoming heat, keeping the home cooler inside.
Reduce Your Heating Costs By Up To 43%*
Did you know most of your home’s energy is lost through windows? Research has revealed that up to 30%^ of total heat loss from your home occurs through uncovered windows. The Luxaflex Duette Architella covered window below on the right demonstrates significantly improved energy savings versus the uncovered window on the left.
* Savings are based on the installation of fully-recessed, reveal-mounted Duette Architella Shades with 20mm blockout fabric in an average home in Sydney, compared with the House Energy Rating standard of Holland Blinds from AccuRate, in that home. These calculations have been modelled by an independent third party. Savings will vary based on the window type and installation. ^ Based on information from NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System). Visit www.nabers.com.au for more information.
