The launch of the Duette Honeycomb shade in 1985 has resulted in it becoming one of Hunter Douglas’ consumer favourites. The innovative construction of the product creates air pockets that improve the energy efficiency of your windows. Later introductions: the Duette Architella (three air pockets) which reduces heat loss up to 40%, and the Duette Architella Trielle (five air pockets) which increases energy efficiency even more.
The Duette is available in sheer, semi-opaque and opaque fabrics with multiple pleat sizes of 3/8”, ¾” and 1 1/4”. The fabric selection is an amazing array of colours and textures which enable you to enhance any style of room décor.
The Alustra Collection – Duette: Unique fabrics. Distinctive details. Custom combinations. A signature collection for those who seek out the best in design. Available exclusively from Hunter Douglas dealers. Five fabric selections offer unique texture, dimension and colour making each Alustra Duette honeycomb the perfect addition to any design aesthetic. The ¾” pleat size has been added to this distinctive collection. Four exclusive hardware finishes bring out the best in decorative furnishings.
When installed inside a window frame, the Duette has a very small light gap and therefore is the perfect choice of product for room darkening. The Top Down / Bottom Up feature is a popular choice for areas where you want the option to adjust the shade to partially cover the window, allowing natural light in while maintaining privacy. The Duette Duolite goes one step further by adding a second fabric. This gives you the option of completely covering the window with a solid fabric, completely opening up the window and creating a soft glow with a sheer fabric or a combination of the two – all in one shade!
The standard control system for the Duette is the UltraGlide system which allows you to lower and tilt shades with one click, and raise the shade with short strokes of a retractable wand. The LiteRise system allows you to raise, lower and tilt the shade with no cords.
And, of course, the state-of-the-art PowerView battery-powered system offers convenience with the touch of a button. Be sure to ask about the Hub which allows you to utilize the PowerView App for Apple and Android mobile devices. You can create Scenes to balance different lighting and privacy needs throughout the day – imagine being able to schedule your Duette Honeycomb Shades to automatically open and close at the same time each day depending on the time of sunrise and sunset! And how convenient it would be to adjust your window treatments for temperature, privacy, and security from across the room or across the world!
Do you have unique windows that require shading? Specialty shapes are available to treat most windows – angles, arches, trapezoids, hexagons and octagons can all be dressed with Duette shades, allowing you to coordinate all of the windows in your space. Sidelight shades are perfect for door sidelights and narrow windows. The Duette Vertiglide is a wonderful product for large expanses of window, patio doors or even used as a room divider. The pleats are vertically oriented and combine perfectly with horizontal pleated shades to create a uniform look in the room. The shade can be configured to stack left, stack right, be a split stack, or a traveling center stack. It is also available as a Duolite offering the advantages of having two opacities of fabrics in one shade.
Duette Honeycomb shades offer a simple and elegant way to control light and privacy in any room, enhancing any style of décor!
