The Honeycomb style of the Blinds takes this one step further by trapping warm air in its Honeycomb pockets which in a blackout fabric are also lined with a reflective ‘foil’ type of material. This provides increased insulation while maintaining an attractive design. Honeycomb Blinds are the ultimate energy saving solution, with a variety of seizes available to further strengthen insulation.
