Why Luxaflex®?

The world’s most admired window coverings

In every product category there’s one brand that stands above the rest - a name that represents the latest innovations, the best quality and the highest levels of performance. For window coverings, that name is Luxaflex®.

The Luxaflex® brand was created in the 1950s, when the Hunter Douglas company invented the extraordinary aluminium casting and production process that enabled the production of metal Venetian Blinds. They called their Aluminium Blinds ‘Luxaflex®’ (flexible light), and so a legend was born. 

Always innovating

The research and development teams behind the Luxaflex® brand have kept the pressure on, even when competitors were miles behind. Their commitment has led to many world-firsts, including the invention of insect screens for windows and doors, Aluminium Awnings and window grilles, Pleated Blinds, Micro Blinds, Honeycomb Blinds (Duette® Shades and Duette® Architella® Shades), Fabric Vane Blinds (Silhouette® Shadings and Luminette® Privacy Sheers) and remote-controlled motorised window coverings.

Award winning

Luxaflex® Window Fashions can be found in the world's most admired contemporary and heritage homes, as well as commercial premises where productivity is enhanced by precision control of natural light. Luxaflex® products and innovations have amassed numerous industrial and design awards during the brand's 60+ year history.
