Saving energy with blinds

Saving Energy

At the touch of a button the different settings can truly save energy – “Winter warm” opens the blinds, taking advantage of sunlight warming a space. “Summer cool” does the opposite lowering blinds and blocking solar heat gain, thereby reducing any cooling costs. On top of this, Lutron shading fabrics are made from sustainable materials for wider environmental and energy savings.


Smart blind and curtain control

Adding Convenience

The technology is there to make a comfortable and stylish home more convenient. Shading systems can be controlled with ease using one central or a mix of keypads, remote controls, wireless tabletop controls or set to a timer for automatic adjustment.

Safety & Security

We’re no longer limited to a rigid ‘on/off’ of a few individual lights when we’re away and feeling a little vulnerable. Simply set a pre-determined scene for “Away”, select this button when leaving to close all blinds and restrict the view inside your home and have particular blinds throughout the home open and close at a variety of likely times for a seriously ‘lived in’ look for added safety and security.

Automated blinds and curtains will diffuse light preventing glare from washing out a computer or television screen. It will also protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces, from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Keep a space cool in the summer and warm in the winter by using shading systems to deflect or harness solar heat.

Automated skylight half open with blue skySkylight Blinds – Tensioned Roller Blinds provide solutions for skylights, bottom-up, and angled windows. The innovative design by Lutron keeps fabric panels taut and parallel to windows with minimal sag at a variety of slopes. Lutron tensioned shades reduce light gaps around fabric, and maximize the view when opened by eliminating cable guides that are typical in skylight Blinds. The frame may be surface mounted, inside mounted, or recessed while still allowing easy access to update the fabric.

The system is also useful in areas of high velocity airflow to prevent unwanted Blind motion. Fabric is available in a full range of colours.

So, to help add style, convenience and real functionality, we offer a range of automated and manual window coverings from a variety of manufacturers so we can find the right solution for your home and budget.
