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.

SKYLIGHT DUETTES

A skylight is a wonderful feature to any home but a Luxaflex® Duette blind on your skylight, helps you determine when you want light, sun protection or even block out. With built in insulation characteristics and unique honeycomb structure, Luxaflex® Duette blinds prevent the intense heat you may experience during the summer and the loss of warmth in your home during the winter.

Luxaflex® Skylight Duette blinds are custom made and can be fitted to a large range of different skylight solutions. Operation can be motorised for those hard to reach areas or manual with a telescopic wand if it’s not too high up.

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.
