Look Smart, Be Smart and Save Energy

As the colour of leaves change to yellows, reds and browns to signal the arrival of autumn, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll be putting the heating on when you come in from work & “just to take the chill off the room” at weekends!  Luxaflex® Duette® Shades will help keep your home warm in the winter.  Its unique honeycomb construction helps reduce heat loss by 46%, helping to save on expensive energy bills.

The original Duette® Shades are as beautifully stylish as they are energy efficient – enjoy stunning designs and colours with a unique honeycomb structure, giving still-air layers that work like an insulating blanket helping insulate rooms in the winter by reducing heat loss, and keeping rooms cooler in the summer.

Luxaflex® products help conserve energy at the window in three important ways:

  1. Insulation

In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, such as the Duette® Shades, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.trustopt.com

  1. Solar Heat Control

The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Many Luxaflex® window treatments help to control solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.

  1. Day lighting

Day lighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light. By drawing natural light into a room many of Luxaflex® window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.

Summer, Sunshine and Silhouette® Shades

After a long dark winter, we all long for the sun to come streaming through our windows, but sometimes there can be just too much of a good thing. Silhouette® Shades take the harshest sunlight and transforms it into beautiful natural light; all you have to do is tilt the vanes to enjoy more natural daylight. The vanes will diffuse and spread the light evenly throughout the room, filtering out brightness, glare and UV rays.

Luxaflex® Silhouette® Shades are also great when it comes to controlling your privacy – a view to the outside when open during the day and when completely closed in the evenings, you can enjoy your seclusion.

Silhouette® Shades are available in a wide range of beautiful fabrics and sophisticated on-trend colours. Each fabric has its own unique feel – with a choice of new silk looks, subtle linens -all designed to create subtly filtered light.

      

New to the range is: Promenade – a nature inspired fabric design with a soft, casual look, it is available in five soft tone colours.  Ombre – a stylish light dimming fabric designed to subdue light when needed it is available in seven colours.  Bayou – a fresh linen design with a warm look available in three saturated colours. Lumière –  an elegant sheer fabric with a subtle structure it is available in five colours. Éclair – a beautifully textured fabric that subtly plays with light it is available in four colours. French Linen – a linen look fabric with a casual, sophisticated style that compliments every décor, comes in four colours.

There are even special screen fabrics that will reduce the heat coming into the room up to 25% and deflect and dim the sun’s rays. When the vanes are closed, you will also enjoy up to 99% UV protection.
