Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of custom window treatments, announced today the launch of a revolutionary blackout technology, the Duette® LightLock™ system, carefully engineered to prevent light leakage at the window and create a blissful, unparalleled room blackout effect for consumers.
Duette Honeycomb Shades with LightLock use unique U-shaped side channels that overlap the front and back of the shades. The secret to unparalleled room darkening lies within the patent-pending side channel design, which features rows of specially shaped micro-ridges, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light while preventing the light from seeping into the room.
The LightLock channels are available in three sleek finishes—Aspen White, Gardenia White and Bronze—which allow them to perfectly blend into the window frame, coordinating with any design aesthetic. The LightLock system is available in all ¾" Duette fabrics with a wide selection of fabric colors. The system is compatible with Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation for easy control of shades via the PowerView App or with voice-activation through the Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit.
Duette with LightLock provides homeowners with unparalleled darkness for improved sleep, the perfect movie-watching environment, as well as insulation at the window to control heat and save on energy bills.

If you are conscious about the environmental impact of all the power consumed by artificial lighting and heating then you must know that nearly 50% of all the heat used in the homes is likely to be lost through windows.

Our Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are the ideal solution for such a scenario. They keep your rooms warm in winter and cooler in summer and ensure good energy efficiency throughout the year.
The ethereal beauty of the light from the rising sun has held humankind in awe for time immemorial. For millennia, when dusk brought the curtain down on our day, dawn signalled the raising of that very curtain. Things have changed, the biggest one being that we have the ability to create and experience light exactly how we want to, but the one constant? The beauty of the rising sun cannot be matched.
Automatic Window Blinds That Move To Your Schedule
Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to the soothing rays of the morning sun, rather than the often jarring sound of an alarm clock?

The PowerView® Automation system has been developed with convenient and varied control of window blinds in mind. This state-of-the-art system was awarded the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award in 2018, one of the most sought-after seals of quality for good design.

Form And Function Rolled Into One

Honeycombs – one of nature’s most effective patterns – make the most efficient use of space and building materials. Humans began finding uses for this pattern more than 3,000 years ago, though its practical adoption only began just over 100 years ago.
Our designers and engineers knew that almost 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy is lost through windows. They also realized the worth of the honeycomb as a means of improving insulation. After years of research to perfect its design, operation, and manufacture, we launched a path-breaking window covering in 1985. One that still continues to lead the field when it comes to window coverings.
THE ORIGINAL ENERGY-EFFICIENT HONEYCOMB SHADE
When it came to energy efficiency, Duette® Honeycomb Shades were the first window coverings created for homes in both cold and warm climates. The honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, creating insulation that helps keep your house warm in winter, and cool in summer, helping lower energy consumption and hence, your energy bills. Our latest innovation, Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, features a double honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency.
The benefits of the Duette® Honeycomb Shades aren’t just restricted to energy efficiency and the diffusion of light.
Premium Design & Style – Tastes and preferences of our customers vary, as do the expectations of leading architects and interior designers. So whether you’re planning a classic or contemporary look, we have a suite of exclusive design-inspired fabrics, textures, colors, and hardware that will more than meet your needs, while enhancing interiors, providing comfort, light diffusion, and privacy.
Ultimate Versatility – Windows come in many shapes. We’re all familiar with square and rectangular-shaped windows, but include arches, quarter circles, circles, hexagons, and octagons. Our signature Duette® Honeycomb Shades offers an expansive selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colors, textures, and operating systems. And if you happen to have a skylight, we have solutions for that too.
The Best Of Both Worlds – An innovation yet to be surpassed, the Duette Duolite® combines two fabrics – one light filtering, the other room darkening – in a single shade, providing the ideal option for regulating light and privacy.
Room Darkening—The LightLock™ system, the newest innovation from Duette is the first operating system to offer unparalleled darkness. So whether you want to watch your TV with no harsh glare reflecting off it, or you like to sleep in total darkness, our unique side-channel design absorbs or deflects nearly all light from seeping into the room.
Durability – All our high-performing fabrics are UV-protected, making them resistant to fading, and will maintain their crisp, neat pleats over time. Additionally, fabrics can be anti-static, dust- and moisture-resistant too, maintaining their beauty for years to come.
Vertical Application – Not all windows are made equal. Glass doors and French windows may require vertical coverings, or perhaps extra insulation. The Duette Vertiglide™ operating system is the answer, and it uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. Use one shade to cover the entire expanse of sliding windows, or, cover the door with a split-stack Vertiglide shade, with each side operating independently.
Sound Absorption – Noise pollution is increasingly a feature in the modern world. Duette® Honeycomb Shades absorb up to 80% of sound energy – improving your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound – creating a more quiet, tranquil space.
In offices the world over, roller blinds are a popular choice of window covering due to its versatility, practicality, and affordability. As the name suggests, these blinds are made from a continuous panel of fabric or material that rolls up, and when raised, isn’t visible to the naked eye. Such blinds come in a variety of fabrics and styles and work in any setting – home or office, shop or restaurant – and with almost any décor.
Given that roller blinds come in many different types, the big question is the type that best meets your needs. Traditional Roller Blinds, or roller screen shades? Popular for their sleek look and flexibility, extensive fabric colours and designs, and multiple light-filtering options, including blackout roller blinds, the choice is yours.
For rooms that get a lot of sun, the option of roller blind offers a tremendous advantage over curtains exist. These offer excellent UV protection while maintaining the view of your surroundings. Coverings like the Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades combine the energy-efficient construction of a cellular shade with the clean lines of a std roller blind, giving you the best of both worlds
Sheers, opaques, patterns, textures, and colours – there are plenty of choices for you. We have hundreds of fabrics and as well as top and bottom treatments – enabling you to customize blinds that fit almost any application.
Even more versatile is our innovative system that combines two blinds on a single headrail. With Roller Blinds, fabrics of different opacities can be combined to achieve varying degrees of light control. Using Roller Blinds with motorization in combination with our sun control devices will not only offer you a seamless experience but also superior solar heat control.
Whether your design sensibilities are modern or traditional, these blinds work extremely well due to their clean, neutral appearance. When installed behind the curtains in your room, they add style and an extra layer of privacy. And if you have a beautiful view, enjoy it in its entirety, because when raised, the blinds disappear completely into the headrail.
The really great thing about such blinds is that they can be mounted a number of ways. An inside mount highlights your windows, while an outside mount covers the window frames.
With its clean, modern look, light-control options, a multitude of designs and fabric choices that can be customized to fit all sorts of window sizes and styles, roller blinds could be the solution you’re looking for. Features like the dual-roller option and innovative lifting systems allow for even more flexibility. And best of all? Roller blinds are easy to clean and just as easy to maintain.
Using Roller Blinds with motorization in combination with our sun control devices will not only offer you a seamless experience but also superior solar heat control.
