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.

The strings running through the slats are accentuated in this way. Of course it is a matter of taste, but many see it as a decorative value. You can choose the colour of the ladder tape so that it fits perfectly the colour of your slat.
However, daredevils can also go for a contrasting colour.
