Insulating Your Windows - Duette® Architella Shades

To support sustainable living, Luxaflex® developed Duette® Architella Shades to reduce the staggering 50% of heat lost through windows, even with double glazing. The intelligent design of our award-winning blinds can reduce this by almost half as the honeycomb-shaped cells create an insulating layer at your window.

How Duette® Shades Work

It’s all down to the distinctive honeycomb cells which trap air, allowing them to act as an insulator. This helps to keep your home warm in winter by keeping more heat in and cooler in the summer by reducing incoming heat.

The unique cell-in-cell construction with three insulating air layers offers superb insulation for your home.

The special design also helps block the sun's UV rays, which left unchecked can cause fading of flooring and furniture. Duette® blinds create softly diffused light in your home with exclusive colour and design choices to suit your style.

50% of heat lost from the home is through the windows

By installing Duette® Architella Shades you can reduce this by almost half and help reduce heating, cooling, and lighting needs in three significant ways:

Insulating against heat loss, protecting against excess solar gain, and enhancing available daylight which postpones the need to use electric lighting in the evening.

How the numbers stack up
Up to 46% reduction in heat loss (on double-glazed windows)
Up to 51% reduction in heating energy
Up to 78% less heat intake in the summer
Up to 99% of UV rays blocked
