The latest addition to the Luxaflex® Window Fashions range is a new collection of vertical fabric blinds designed to complement stylish interiors without compromising child safety.

Installed with the Australian designed and developed EDGE Vertical Track System, the new Luxaflex Veri Shades offer a premium hardware and operating system for ultimate performance, durability and smooth control.

Child safety has been prioritised in the design of the new Luxaflex Veri Shades. Jenny Brown, National Marketing Manager for Australian Window Furnishings division of Hunter Douglas, explains that the new range features a traversing wand operation wherein homeowners simply rotate the wand to turn the fabric blades and draw the vanes across with one hand. Additionally, with no connecting bottom chains or weights, the blinds contribute to a safer home environment for children and pets.

Anyone can conveniently walk through the individual chainless fabric vanes, whether they are opened or closed, for seamless indoor-outdoor living while the Veri Shades operate quietly. The curved vanes are made from a durable fabric with the Veri Shades hanging like curtains but operating with the superior functionality of blinds to provide advanced privacy, light filtering and air flow with a sleek contemporary look.

The dirt- and dust-resistant properties of the fabric simplify maintenance while UV protection helps preserve the fabric and protect other home furnishings from fading due to sun exposure.

Luxaflex Veri Shades are available in two subtly different textured fabric ranges, Standard and Net. The Standard fabric range provides a modern geometric mesh aesthetic, while the Net fabric range offers a timeless net pattern. Each fabric range is available in six neutral and monochrome tones with a colour-coordinated headrail to create a uniform appearance.

According to Brown, vertical window coverings combine practical design with style when covering sliding doors and large windows; the seamless colour coordination between the fabric and hardware creates a cohesive interior look. The new Luxaflex Veri Shades collection combines the versatility of a vertical blind with the elegance of a soft window furnishing. The individually curved fabric vanes of Luxaflex Veri Shades feature an alternating light filtering and room darkening fabric panel, enabling homeowners to easily adjust the level of privacy and light to suit their requirements.
