Venetian blinds



Versatile, durable and timeless. That is how we describe our Simuwood Venetian blinds. Available in 16 colours and hand crafted in our factory in Kwa-Zulu Natal, this investment will last a lifetime and never go out of style.

Motorised Venetian Blinds

Luminos Venetian 50mm slat width blinds can be operated using a motorised system from a wall switch, remote control or programmed control system, which may be integrated seamlessly with a home automation system. Luminos is proud to offer this option in association with Somfy, a world-leader in such systems.

Venetian blinds can lift, drop and tilt via remote control and it is also possible to programme the blinds to react automatically to the sunlight and temperature in a room, protecting you, furniture and plants against the harmful effects of the sun, whilst providing effective temperature control.
