DUETTE®

Ever since the arise of Duette® Shades, the pleated products have gained enormously in popularity. Duette® fabrics are pleated fabrics with a honeycomb structure. This causes a double layer which makes that the typical cords in the fabric are no longer visible.

The specific shape and structure of Duette® fabric brings along some technical specifications which make pleated blinds a very profitable type of window covering. The insulation value of Duette® Shade is in no way comparable with any other type of window covering.

Those who like to keep the warmth inside during winter and keep the heat out in summer will find that Duette® Shades are a great partner. We can say with certainty that Duette® Shades will involve a reduction of your energy costs.
As the icing on the cake, Duette® Shades are perfect for the acoustics. If you for instance play a musical instrument, a pleated blind with Duette® is the ideal solution.

Keeping the heat out on hot days?

Our Duette® Shades are the best choice if you want to achieve this. The fabric is formed in a honey comb structure, which serves as an isolating layer in front of your window.  During summer this layer is blocking the heat transmission from outside to the inside, during winter this prevents warmth escaping through the glass. You understand it correctly, ideal for your energy bill!
