Revolutionary Honeycomb Cellular Shades

Honeycomb Shades Are Revolutionary

Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb shades were the first cellular shades introduced to the market. The design was groundbreaking, and as such, it is the original cellular shade. The shades are not only engineered to serve a purpose, but they also supply beauty to any room. Every Duette® shade is custom-crafted in the United States with superior craftsmanship and gorgeous materials.

Honeycomb shades differ from traditional window treatments, as they will make your home more energy-efficient because of the insulation capabilities offered. The energy efficiency is effective in both warm and cold temperatures. Ordinary shades can allow up to 50% of your heating and cooling energy to escape through the windows. The unique appearance of these shades is due to the cellular composition. The cells act as pockets meant to trap any air that can travel in and out of your house. By restricting airflow, your energy consumption is conserved. The heating and cooling output is improved, and your monthly energy bills will be reduced. Not many window treatments can boast that they will save you money. Honeycomb shades are an investment towards future energy savings.

Besides being practical, cellular shades also offer an extensive range of design possibilities. When creating custom Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades, you have complete control over the pleat sizes, colors, fabrics, textures, and opacities. The size of the cells is chosen by you, too. You even get to select the operating system that best aligns with your needs. Innovative options like the Top-Down/Bottom-Up and Duette Duolite™ make these shades an ideal choice for all windows, skylights, and distinct window shapes, such as circles, sidelights, and arches. The Top-Down/Bottom-Up method allows the shades to rise from the bottom or lower from the top. This versatility gives you the perfect equilibrium of privacy and natural light. Duette Duolite™ uses two fabrics, with different opacities, that are bonded together to give you both room darkening and view-through capabilities.

If you have outside doors that are in need of additional insulation, the Vertiglide™ operating system is a great solution. This lifting system is designed to suit vertical oriented shades, and features the exact same fabrics that are used in horizontal Duette® shades. You can cover your sliding door entirely with one shade. You also have to the option to dress your door with a split stack shade, where each side of the shade functions individually.  Vertiglide™ conforms to whatever you require for your shades.  Honeycomb shades can also use the PowerView® Motorization operating system, which allows you to control the shades with either an app or remote. Several other operating systems are available, as well
