Day and Night
Duette® Shades are available in a unique Two In One setup which allows you to combine two contrasting Duette® fabrics or even a Duette® with a Plissé fabric in one shade for one window. During the day, enjoy the view through a highly transparent, light filtering fabric; at night, switch over to a more opaque or even a black-out Duette® fabric to eliminate light and ensure privacy.
Two different transparencies in one window with endless possibilities when it comes to your own, personal approach to colour co-ordination.
The ultimate in versatility, Top-Down/Bottom-Up Duette® Shades from Luxaflex® offer you the ability to operate shades from the top down, the bottom up, or in combination of the two. Quite literally the best of both worlds - natural light and privacy all in one. An ideal choice for bathrooms or for street facing windows, Duette Top-Down/Bottom-Up is also the perfect choice for offices that require complete control over window glare.
Tilt and Turn
Our Side-Guided option fixes your Duette® Shade onto the window frame, holding it in place and eliminating any light leakage along the outside edges. In combination with the overall small dimensions of the Duette shade system, this option presents an ideal solution for your turn and tilt windows as well as for sliding or turning doors.
