Energy Efficiency – Honeycomb Blinds


Duette Architella® honeycomb shades can reduce solar heat gain through windows by up to 80% in the summer and in winter they can reduce a home’s heat loss by up to 40%. Just when you thought Architella couldn’t get any better, think again…think Architella Trielle™ Elan®, now the most energy efficient honeycomb shade in the history of our industry!

At our Broomfield, CO test lab we placed light fixtures heated up to 140 degrees behind three shades. Temperature recordings on the front of each shade using an infrared camera showed the following:

Shade 1 (left), a single cell shade, recorded 108 degrees
Shade 2 (middle), an Architella shade, recorded 95.4 degrees
Shade 3 (right), a Trielle shade recorded only 84.6 degrees

That’s a 24 degree difference between a single cell shade and Trielle!
