When you select our Silhouette® collection of blinds, you know you’re investing in quality that won’t leave you disappointed. Silhouette blinds are a unique and versatile form of window dressing. Like normal blinds, the blinds can be raised and lowered in order to let in the desired amount of light. But unlike normal blinds, silhouette blinds have thin sheets of fabric both on the front and the back of the blinds in order to keep out a small amount of light, even when the blinds are opened. Their versatile design cleverly combines the functionality of roller and venetian blinds, with the privacy you expect from nets and curtains. This is a unique and advanced style of blinds, perfect for any bright home that wants to cut down on glare, UV rays, and heat while still keeping a high level of natural light flowing in The stylish, lightweight fabric is also designed to give you total control of light and shade, coming in a variety of colors to suit any décor.
What is a Silhouette blind?
Silhouette is one of the most innovate window coverings ever introduced. It can add a touch of class to an existing look or become the basis for the entire style of your home to define a mood or enhance a feeling there is nothing like Silhouette. The blind controls the light without sacrificing privacy. By rotating the vanes, you have the softness of a sheer, the light control of a horizontal blind and the convenience of a roller blind. It will enrich any room with the infinite range of light intensities it provides
How do I operate Silhouette blinds?
They can be powered or manually operated – the choice is yours. Silhouette is compatible with our motorized automated blinds system for use in the home. Alternatively choose a manual system which is child and pet safe by design
Are Silhouette blinds energy efficient?
It is a scientific fact that heat is attracted to cold. In winter months, indoor heating moves toward and escapes through windows to the outdoors, while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through windows. Many window treatments help insulate homes so you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable room setting.
Do Silhouette blinds impact on the light in the room?
The blinds enhance natural daylighting. The sheers disperse sunlight deep into the room, reducing the need for electric lights. Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than with artificial lighting. By drawing natural light into a room, many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing energy use.
