For a stylish energy efficient blind to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, while reducing energy costs, the Cosiflor® honeycomb blind is the answer.
Honeycomb fabric is twin-layered, providing insulation against harsh seasonal elements by creating air pockets both between the glass and the blind, and within the blind itself. Honeycomb blinds function to help keep your home cooler during the summer months and reduce heat loss during winter.
A window with normal glazing (double glazing as per DIN 4108 / EN 13363-1, U = 1.6) lets about 72% of the solar heat into the room. The Cosiflor® honeycomb blind reduces heat penetration considerably by decreasing the solar radiation that enters the room.
Conversely, the blinds also prevent thermal loss through the windows in winter. Cosiflor® honeycomb blinds can save up to 12% on heating energy by slowing the loss of heat through your windows, and the blinds also have high sound absorbing qualities, providing acoustic softening even when the rest of a room is defined by hard surfaces.
Cosiflor® honeycomb blind – low Fc value, high savings
The following applies in summer: The lower the Fc value, the greater the shading provided from solar radiation by Cosiflor® honeycomb blind.
The following applies in winter: The lower the Fc value, the less the thermal loss through the window when Cosiflor® honeycomb blind is installed.
Cosiflor® honeycomb blinds are sleek and slimline, designed to be able to fit inside the beading, reveal or architrave of most windows to provide maximum thermal value. Strings are conveniently hidden inside the double wall of fabric in the blind, making them elegant and streamlined.
Cosiflor® honeycomb blinds have an asymmetrical honeycomb shape at the back which prevents the pleats from sagging on the front. It is a small detail, but it has a major effect on the look of your blinds.
Cosiflor® honeycomb blinds are divided into two main categories of free-hanging and pre-tensioned blinds, providing solutions for almost any type of window. From the ever-popular top down/bottom up style of blind, designed to fit snugly inside either the beading or reveal of your window, to a wider chain or motor-operated blind, we’ve got you covered. And they have been designed for roof and conservatory windows and special shaped windows.
