Care and Cleaning

Caring for your Luxaflex® Aluminium Venetian Blinds is easy by simply closing the slats and then dusting them with a feather duster, soft - haired brush or soft cloth. If the stains are very stubborn, it is best to clean them with a damp cloth. You can also use a vacuum cleaner at the lowest setting. Another option is to gently spray-clean larger surfaces and then allow them to dry well. You can also have the blinds cleaned by a professional cleaning service which uses ultrasonic cleaning technology.


Standard Aluminium Venetian

Aluminium Venetian Blinds are available in a range of modern designs and finishes in slat widths of 25mm and 50mm.

Twi-nighter Venetian Blinds

Designed to eliminate light filtering through slats. The positioning of rout holes and closure of the slats provides minimal exposure of incoming light  offering greater privacy and light control.

In Between Glass

Fits between glass panels of a double glazed window (50mm cavity). It provides superior energy efficiency and can be adjusted with a tilt control knob or remote control.


Cord and Wand

The Slimline and Twi-nighter Venetian Blinds are supplied with a lift cord and tilt wand. The standard tilting mechanism is fitted with a unique protection to prevent the mechanism slipping and the ladder cords from being stretched, providing precise slat closure. Using the precise tilting mechanism the slats can be positioned to each desired closing position.

Automated Tilt and Raise and Auto-tilt 

The angle of the slats are adjusted to suit your requirements by a remote control. The blind is operated by a built in electric motor. There is a choice of switches, group operation, infrared remote, radio remote or solar control. 25mm blinds are operated by 24V motors and 50mm blinds are operated by 240V motors. Auto Tilt option allows you to adjust the operation of the slat only with a battery operated motor and remote. (25mm only)

Specialty Shapes

Specialty shapes are available with the Standard Slimline, 50mm Classic Blinds. These include Sloping Bottom and Sloping Head.

Thermostop® Slat 
The Thermostop® Slat is based on a slat which has a special coating on the concave side, giving an emission of heat radiation three times lower (Emission value 30% instead of 90% for a normal painted slat). This special finish increases the thermal resistance in winter and decreases the inside heat transfer in summer.

Various perforation options are available. This innovative solution allows you to choose the shade solution suitable for different facade orientations (8% on south facade, 4% on east, north and west facade). These perforation options provide the ideal solution for optimal daylight regulation. The ideal solution when window reveals are not large enough for Sunscreen Rollershade creations.

Child Safety

The new Aluminium Venetian Blind range is available with a unique stylish break-thru cord connector, which helps to minimise cords and simplify operation. It is also designed to break apart should weight or pressure be applied.

Energy benefits

The primary purpose of interior window coverings is to provide visual comfort, reduce glare and diffuse incoming sunlight to comfortable intensity levels. This way free renewable daylight can be exploited to the maximum. There is less need for artificial light, less heat emanating from it so less energy is needed for cooling. Interior window coverings are an essential component in high performance daylight management. Luxaflex® Aluminium Venetian Blinds are effective reflectors of heat, particularly in light and metallic colours.

Environmenal Benefits

The adjustable light control function of Aluminium Venetian Blinds means that the use of natural light can be maximised, which is important for well being as well as reducing the need for artificial lighting and temperature control.

Perforated Aluminium Venetian Blinds provide shading while allowing the building occupants a view to the outside, reducing the feeling of disconnection from the outside world.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds are made from up to 97% recycled materials (excludes limited edition). The Aluminium Venetian slat has been tested and does not  exceed the maximum VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) criteria specified by the Green Building Council of Australia (IEQ-11).

Thermostop® Benefits

Thermostop® Slats conduct less heat than standard slats, improving insulation. Thermostop® Slats have a special coating on the concave side of the slat, making Thermostop® Slats a very good reflector. In summer this helps reflect solar energy back to the outside lowering inside temperatures and reducing the need for cooling. In winter, fully closed Thermostop® Coated Venetians can be very effective in keeping the heat indoors.


The 25mm Aluminium Venetian Blind uses a 26mm wide x 26mm deep strip rolled from pre-coated 0.5mm aluminium zinc alloy coated steel finished in a thermosetting polyester coating over a chromated primer, adding strength and rigidity to the headrail.

Bottom Rail

The 25mm Aluminium Venetian Blind uses a D shaped 22.5mm x 10mm lock seamed tubular section, roll formed from 0.5mm aluminium zinc alloy coated steel, finished In a thermosetting polyester coating over a chromated primer. This fully enclosed bottomrail adds weight and maximum strength for rigidity.

The coating process meets Coil Coating Standards (AS/NZS2728:2007) to ensure paint adhesion flexibility and resistance to solvents and has been stove enamelled for greater corrosion resistance. 


Aluminium Venetian Blind limitations have been developed to ensure the blind operates and performs to maximum potential. Measurements outside of these parameters may not perform to our Quality Standards and will be void of warranty.


Matt, gloss, satin, brushed, marble, perforated and Thermostop® Slat.

Colour Co-ordination

The slats have been been colour coordinated to the headrail, bottomrail and plastic components for a complete, consistent and appealing blind. (Limited edition colour matched only).
