Press Release Summary: Basingstoke- based, Designer Blinds Direct is releasing a new range of insulating blinds as part of its green commitment in 2008.
Press Release Body: Windows make up on average 15 to 40 percent of the wall area in a house, and can therefore allow large heat losses. In the average house, heat lost through windows can represent up to 37 percent of the total heat lost. This is why Designer Blinds Direct's newest addition to its range will be keeping its customers warm this winter as well as helping them to go green.
The design incorporates a unique hexagonal double cell fabric (that normal blinds don't have) that traps air, creating a barrier that prevents heat escaping, improving the efficiency of any window. The insulating fabric is specifically designed to look and feel soft as well as acting as a durable barrier.
The family-run business has been working hard to create a sustainable working environment over the past couple of years. Alan Lane, MD says, "We've been working hard to improve our green status, so introducing this new range of insulating blinds to our customers seemed like a logical step. People take steps to improve energy efficiency by regulating thermostats and using energy efficient light bulbs, so why not take extra steps to insulate windows on top of double glazing?"
