Why are honeycomb blinds considered to be the best at providing insulation benefits?
Otherwise known as ‘Cellular blinds’ Honeycomb blind fabrics are unique in that they are made up of numerous hexagonal cells. These cells create pockets which trap the air. Acting in a similar manner to double glazed windows, they naturally reduce the transfer of heat. This means your home stays warm in winter and cool in summer offering huge savings on your energy bills.
Which honeycomb fabric type offers the best insulation properties?
Honeycomb fabrics are available in both single and double cell formats. You can also choose from sheer, light filtering or blockout fabrics. Although there is not much difference between honeycomb blind light filtering vs blockout fabrics when it comes to insulation properties as judged by its ‘R Value’ (Thermal resistance), it is the double cell blockout that delivers the most effective insulation.

Inside or outside mounted? Which is the best application for a honeycomb blind?
To get the best out of the honeycomb insulation benefits, the recommendation is to inside mount your honeycomb blinds. To ensure a flush inside mount you will need a minimum of 50mm depth inside your window recess. The honeycomb blinds will sit neatly inside your window recess with minimal side gaps. Our Top down bottom up versions come standard with additional fabric positioned under the head rail eliminating light gaps and enhancing the insulation benefits when in the closed position.
