Duette® Blinds Work All Year Round

If Duette® blinds retain heat and energy so well, won’t it make your home too hot on sunny days?

Not at all.

The same honeycomb cell structure that keeps heat in the room also reflects outside heat.

As the hot air passes through the vanes, it diffuses the air particles which is what keeps your room nice and cool.

This is exactly why a duette® blind is the perfect investment for your home all year round.
