Enjoying the views while still preserving privacy is possible with Luxaflex Sunscreens from New Zealand Window Shades

Natural advantage


Loss of privacy may not be an issue for an office that's 20 storeys above street level. However, other problems such as glare, UV rays and heat build-up are likely to arise.

With New Zealand Window Shades' Sunscreen Panorama Selection, it's perfectly feasible to create a modern and uniform exterior appearance for a building, while ensuring occupants' needs are met – from the ground floor upwards.

Luxaflex Sunscreen Panorama blinds are made from a lightweight fabric that controls light, heat and glare without blocking views. Controlling both light and heat makes offices more energy efficient and allows building occupants to control their own working environments.

New Zealand Window Shades' blinds are operated either by chain or they can be motorised for added convenience, using a hand-held remote or a wall switch.

Lois Hayson, commercial manager of New Zealand Window Shades, says the fabric for these blinds is cut using the latest ultrasonic technology, which heat seals the edges to prevent fraying.


"This technology, which is exclusive in New Zealand to our company, allows us to achieve a high-quality finish for long-lasting good looks," she says.
