VELUX INTRODUCES NEW BLIND COLLECTION WITH COLORS AND PATTERNS
New Blinds Give Homeowners Additional Decorating and Design Options Plus Enhanced Performance
IBS BOOTH W2771 - ORLANDO CONVENTION CENTER
ORLANDO, FL – IBS - FEBRUARY 8, 2012– VELUX® America is introducing a new blind
collection with 85 colors and pattern choices, offering homeowners the opportunity to design their
spaces to reflect their personalities and turn ordinary spaces into something special. The products
are being shown for the first time at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Florida in
The new blind collection features a designer series by Karim Rashid, a leading international
figure in the field of modern design. His perspective and clients are global and his projects range
from products, interior design and fashion, to furniture, lighting design and art.
"Daylight is essential for our well-being and ability to think positively, and VELUX makes
exceptional quality skylights, flooding spaces with daylight,” Rashid says. “However, to create an
intimate and recreational space, light control is an absolute must − for sleeping, working or
VELUX blinds are available in many styles and types. Blackout blinds block 98 percent of
outside light, making them perfect for bedrooms, and they also provide optimal thermal protection.
Light filtering blinds are translucent and admit a soft, natural, diffused light to reduce glare. Both
these types are available in solar powered or manual models. Manual Venetian blinds are also
available to adjust light.
The addition of blinds to skylights can increase the overall energy efficiency of the units by
37 percent by reducing potential solar gain in summer and by providing an extra layer of thermal
insulation in winter.
The company now pre-installs blinds at the factory for all electric skylights and offers
factory installation for other models. Consumers can simply pick the type of blinds, colors, and
patterns that best fit their needs and decor when they order.
