When it comes to making your home feel warm and welcoming, choosing the right window coverings can make all the difference! No one knows this better than Luxaflex, a leading brand of window furnishings that has helped Australians transform their homes for almost 70 years.
The Luxaflex brand has been proudly manufacturing in Australia since 1954 when it was introduced by Hunter Douglas, a global leader in window coverings and architectural products. Boasting decades of experience and a strong commitment to quality, Luxaflex is dedicated to making customised window coverings that combine style, functionality and resilience.
Over the years, the Luxaflex product range has expanded to include roller blinds, curtains, shutters and outdoor awnings - offering customers a suite of solutions for window and outdoor shading needs. Manufacturing in both New South Wales and Queensland, the brand’s focus on innovation and quality continues to ring true, with all products meticulously developed and tested to thrive in the challenging Australian climate.
One of their flagship products, PolySatin® Shutters, is made in Yatala QLD using a high-quality polyresin compound which is resistant to moisture and boasts exceptional durability. Beautiful in design and suitable for many window shapes, they are specifically made not to blister, peel or corrode.
The Luxaflex manufacturing process includes state-of-the-art laser cutting technology, automated computer-controlled fabric cutting processes and skilled craftsmanship – all processes that ensure each product is tailor-made to the requirements of each customer. Head of Marketing, Vera Meharg, explained how manufacturing in Australia allows Luxaflex to retain a high-quality level and support the local community.
“Australia upholds some of the highest safety and manufacturing standards globally,” Vera said. “Our commitment to meeting these stringent standards means that our products are built to the highest industry benchmarks, which gives our customers peace of mind. Making our products here means we have greater control over the production process, can communicate effectively between teams, and quickly respond to any challenges or customer requirements.”
“Manufacturing locally means Luxaflex is able to uphold its commitment to support the nation and contribute to the local economy and our community. We’ve established a strong connection with Australian customers over nearly 70 years and are dedicated to sustaining the heritage of local manufacturing.”
It’s for this reason that Luxaflex proudly displays the green and gold Australian Made logo on its products.
“Even though we have been making our products here in Australia for decades, having the logo was the final step to assure customers they were truly buying an Australian product,” Vera said. “It differentiates us from offshore manufacturers and helps our consumers and stakeholders feel confident about the quality and safety of our products.”
Luxaflex also highly values the in-person experience for its customers, with a network of authorised dealers and showrooms across the country that allow customers to talk to consultants and even see touch samples. Whether customers are prioritising design, UV protection or lighting control, the brand’s innovative suite of window covering has solutions for all needs.
“Our aim is to help you create a personalised sanctuary that endures the test of time and is tailor-made to fit your needs,” said Vera. “Luxaflex is extremely proud to be making countless spaces across Australia feel that much more like home.”
