Apollo Express-es itself

Friday, December 17th, 2010

This week Apollo’s blinds were featured in the Daily Express’s Hot Hints section.

In a typically festive feature the newspaper had a collection of ‘must have’ home interior items for this Christmas and our energy saving Duette blinds got a lovely plug (BTW for silly legal reasons we can’t show you the actual article).

In the feature it explained that:

“A fifth of all heat lost from homes escapes through window panes and frames. Apollo Blinds’ energy-efficient Duette Fixe blinds help cut heat loss during winter with their patented air pocket honeycomb texture. Or for even better insulation values, try the blackout range using a metallised film. Blinds can be fitted to any size of window or door and come in a choice of 14 colours. All are made to measure.”

As you can imagine everyone at Apollo HQ was delighted with the coverage and the fact the Express mentioned our website address as well so readers could go and get more information on energy saving blinds.

The only fly in the ointment was that they didn’t use the right picture but we’re not going to look a gift horse in the mouth as all publicity is good publicity. So here’s a picture anyway.

So the combination of millions of people seeing the Daily Express feature and plummeting temperatures this weekend will hopefully see our team of experts around the UK taking a flurry of enquiries for our blinds that keep the warmth in.
