One of the best features of Duette® blinds is their insulation and the energy-saving values that the fabric adds to the window. Up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling can be lost through its windows. Duette® blinds can reduce unwanted solar heat gain in the summer by up to 87% and also cut heat loss through windows in the winter up to 46%. To optimize insulation properties Honeycell Duette® blinds should be installed close to the window, ideally with side tracks and have the foil internal lining (Cranbourne Blackout) for maximum performance.
Duette® blinds are made from woven polyester material. Grants provide a wide selection of ranges and colours and are Duo-Tone as standard with white reverse colour to enable clients to have a consistent colour with maximum reflection. This enables you to have different colours from room to room and still provide the same colour on the reverse of the blind making your house look in keeping with the other rooms. Depending on the fabric used, the intensity of outside sounds can be reduced using the Duette® blind sound absorption properties.
Duette® blinds can be recessed in blind pockets or fully concealed with Blindspace® Boxes. For roof glazing and bottom-up installations, Duette® blinds need to have permanent guide wires across the window. For smaller windows, cords or tracks can be concealed in Blindspace® side boxes. Boxes can be placed above, below and on the side of the window or sliding door.
