Custom Light Diffusion

The Aleo Ambio roller blind provides Luminosity, privacy and visibility. The transparent stripes of the Ambio fabric offered with Aleo when layered will flood your room with sunlight and offer visibility toward the outside.

When the stripes are shifted one over another, they offer more subdued lighting and reduce the glare and offer more privacy. They are ideal for every room of the house or office.

We would like to thank Lester Awnings for the quick service and installation of our blinds. The colour options available were many to pick from and we like the fact that we are still able to look out and nobody can see in especially at night. You gave us a timeline and it was delivered and installed on time. Thanks again and we love our new Altext Blinds.

I’ve meant to write and thank-you again for the retractable awning you installed at our cottage on Eagle Lake. It’s absolutely wonderful – your installers were very pleasant and efficient as well.

Cheryl M., Eagle Lake, Ont.

Thank you, Joe, for your patience and for the expert workmanship on our custom awning! Your installation crew (CHris and crew) have done a marvelous job… the install was difficult based on our structure and location… Chris and his helpful guys were innovative and experts in their knowledge of what we needed done! Our awning is quite large, Chris and his crew fully explained how to use the remote, how to level it and lower it based on the suns location… It looks great… we are pleased to recommend your company to all who ask about our amazing and beautiful awning… it makes our deck into another living area. Thank you again.. all the best.
