In 1947 Hunter Douglas invented the first aluminium venetian blind. After 13 years successfully supplying the product into the architectural market, they developed the first linear aluminium ceiling using the same material. Entitled 84R a new product range was born. Over the ensuing years our ceiling portfolio has developed into a substantial range with over 70 different types of ceilings available in a wide range of materials and finishes.

It is our mission to create quality ceilings. All of our ceilings are designed, optimised and created for perfection.
