The Benefits of Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Energy efficiency

Above all else, Duette® is one of the top collections out there among energy efficient window treatments. Duette® Honeycomb Shades feature a unique cell-shaped interior construction that traps air that would otherwise escape through your windows. This creates a buffer between your home’s interior and the outside and works to improve your home’s insulation. Enjoy cooler summers and warmer winters while keeping out excessive sunlight. Duette® cell shades even feature a revolutionary honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb cell-shaped interior for more temperature control.

UV Protection & Privacy

Top-Down/Bottom-Up control lets you position your honeycomb shades without compromising your sense of privacy. Direct incoming light by moving the entire shade up or down, keeping your room cozy and comfortable while offering refreshing sunlight. Even if you live along a busy street, you can count on Duette® to keep your home shielded from the outside world at night.
