What is the value of R-Value in Winter?


R-value measures a product's ability to keep heat in and cold out. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulation. 

Research reveals that up to 30% of heat loss from your home occurs through uncovered windows, so choosing the appropriate window protection can save you money on energy bills. 

DUETTE ARCHITELLA Shades, with R-Values ranging from 0.67 - 0.84, are the most energy efficient internal window covering in our product range.
