A LEADER IN ITS FIELD

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.

What are Duette Shades?

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades, engineered to provide beauty as well as offering levels of energy efficiency in both cold and warm climates. The honeycomb construction of the Duette Honeycomb Shades traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.

Available in an expansive range of fabrics, colors, opacities and textures and have operating system design options such as Top-Down/Bottom-Up and Duette Duolite® that make these shades versatile throughout the home including hard to reach windows (such as Skylights) and specialty window shapes like arches, sidelights and circles.

Duette shades are available in a single-cell design as well as the industry-leading Duette Architella®, which features a honeycomb within a honeycomb for maximum energy efficiency.

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.

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.

The Quiet Achiever

Duette Shades make the perfect choice when looking at blinds for the bedroom or across your home including media rooms. With the Luxaflex Duette Shades honeycomb technology in addition to their energy efficiency properties with helping to keep your home warm in winter and cooler in summer, the honeycomb technology also helps to reduce everyday sound energy.

Sound energy is absorbed within the cell, dulling exterior noise by up to 55% even with Translucent fabric. Allowing light to enter your home while keeping noise at bay.

Daylighting

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.

Top Down, Bottom Up

Lowering the blind from the top down allows light and provides a view, while maintaining privacy. Duette Shades also works well for skylights, which operate with a control stick. In addition, shapes such as triangles and arched windows can be covered with a fixed Duette shape. Teamed up with a blind below, they provide an ideal solution to unusually shaped windows.
