According to recent estimates, buildings generate nearly 40% of annual global CO2 emissions. It is critical that design and construction professionals understand their role in reducing the built environment’s carbon footprint, and the tools available to assist them. With their ability to block, screen or limit sunlight, blinds play a significant role in improving the thermal efficiency of buildings. However, each product has different environmental impacts across its lifecycle. What factors should you consider when specifying blinds and window coverings to achieve truly sustainable outcomes?

Blinds & Window Coverings: A Pathway to Sustainability takes a closer look at how architects, designers and specifiers should evaluate the sustainability of blinds and what tools are available to help them do so. We examine four key areas in which blinds can improve the sustainability of a building: embodied carbon, energy efficiency, integration with building management systems and contributing to healthy interiors. We then present one of the most energy-efficient blind products on the market.

Australia's specialist manufacturer of commercial and multi-residential blinds and curtains, Norfolk Blinds, are proud to offer Arena Honeycomb Shades by Turnils, a stylish, functional, versatile, energy-efficient window covering solution. Suited for any size or shaped window, these shades offer insulating properties to control room temperature without compromising on style.
