Duette Blinds

The original Duette® Shades are as beautifully stylish as they are energy-efficient. Enjoy stunning designs and colours with a unique honeycomb structure  that helps insulate your home all year round.

SHAPED DUETTE BLINDS 

Shaped, triangular or porthole windows add another architectural design element to homes. However when it comes to wanting to cover these windows with a blind it can be tricky.  Luckily, Luxaflex® Duettes are specifically custom made to fit these windows. Some options will be able to fully open and close while others may be fixed in place.

Fabrics specially coated with Luxaflex® Dustblock® are anti-static and actively repel moisture and dirt. This makes them especially easy to clean and kept in pristine condition.

DUETTE FABRIC R-VALUES

A product’s “R-value” is a measurement of its ability to resist heat flow. In a home during winter, R-values indicate the ability of walls, roofs & windows to keep the heat inside. The higher its R-value, the more insulation a product provides. A fully-recessed, reveal-mounted DUETTE ® Architella Shade can increase the R-value of a 3mm single glazed window from 0.13 to 0.78, reducing the heat transfer through that window by 83%. Independent modelling has shown that this in turn can reduce an average home’s heating costs by up to 43%

The R-values are the combined measurement of 3mm (one-eighth inch) CI glass (R=0.127) plus the window covering and are reported in metric SI units. Thermal properties are determined by a certified third party laboratory utilising accepted ASTM, NFRC and WES standards and procedures. Measurements may vary based on window type and method of installation.

Savings are based on the installation of fully-recessed, reveal-mounted DUETTE ® Architella Opaque Shades 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.
