Some of the hubs also have options to set the blinds on a timer to raise and lower then at certain times of the day, such as sunrise.
Solar Reflective Fabrics
We have a number of fabrics with a Solar Reflective Coating.
These reflect back out the room some of the heat from the sun to limit the temperature in the room.
Duette Pleated Fabrics
Duette pleats are like a series of honeycombe cells running up the fabric.
This makes Duette the ideal choice for room darkening as the cords run within the cell structure and there ore no holes.
Due to their cellular properties they are also ideal for reducing heat loss in winter.
