There are many reasons to choose a Duette® Shade for your home. Apart from our extensive fabric range and their versatility throughout the home, Duette® Shades have many other qualities that make them a perfect inclusion for almost any room.
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.
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.

Luxaflex Duette Shades can help to reduce everyday sound energy by up to 52%* while still allowing light to enter the home. It is the honeycomb technology that helps to dull exterior noise in the cell structure.
*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.
