Recycled Fabric Blinds That Save Energy

Duette® Relife blinds, part of the Duette® range, are manufactured using recycled polyester fibres from consumer’s pre-loved fabrics.

Recycling is a big part of our everyday lives. But where homeowners are used to the idea that their cereal packets and drinks bottles will take on a new life, it might come as a surprise to hear that once-loved textiles can be transformed into stylish window blinds.

Our unwanted throws, curtains and clothes are being reborn into a range of energy-saving super-blinds. Duette® Relife blinds are available in an eclectic selection of silky materials, helping to save the planet, along with hundreds of pounds on energy bills.

But there’s much more to these multi-tasking blinds than just window dressing. With 50% of the home’s warmth escaping through its windows, Duette® Relife energy-saving blinds provide a barrier to heat loss, meaning that eco-savvy consumers could halve the amount of heat lost through their windows.

Duette® blinds have a unique honeycomb design that traps air in an insulating layer at the windows. Using Duette® Relife blinds, heat loss at windows is reduced by as much as 46% – this also means that heating costs can be reduced too. Duette® Relife blinds also regulate the temperature during summer, blocking up to 98% of harmful UV light and helping to keep houses cool.

And the additional benefit of being sound absorbent makes Duette® Relife blinds the hardest working blinds on the market.
