Cellular shades, also known asHoneycomb shades, are a type of fabric window treatment that offers many benefits over traditional window shades. They are available in a wide range of colors and fabrics to suit nearly any style of room. Cellular shades consist of two or more sheets of woven or non-woven fabric sewn together at regular intervals, then pleated to create a honeycomb effect. The pleats may be horizontal (across the window) or vertical (top to bottom). You’ve probably heard of cellular shades for the amazing benefits they offer as far as light filtering/blocking abilities and privacy control. The biggest benefit of cellular shades comes from their construction; the honeycomb cells trap air, offering superior insulation and sound reduction properties. But we live in the desert so insulation isn’t a priority, right? Most people don’t realize that insulation is as crucial during the summer months as during the winter months. During the summer, insulation can help reduce air conditioning bills, keep a home cooler and block the harsh rays of the sun, thereby reducing energy consumption. Most of us would love a way to help lower air conditioning costs in our extreme summer months. These shades will help decrease your energy usage, especially in larger homes or in homes with large, sun-exposed windows.
The Hunter Douglas Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shade Collection provides the highest level of window treatment energy efficiency with its innovative honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design, reducing energy loss up to 40% at the window. The newest evolution in window fashions, Duette Architella Trielle™, made up of three cells, delivers 20% more energy efficiency than original Architella shades and almost 50% more than conventional cellular shades. Or, if interested in budget friendly options for less used spaces of your home, Hunter Douglas Applause Honeycombs offer both style and energy efficiency at an unbeatable price. Three control options are available; UltraGlide® retractable cord, Literise® cordless system, and PowerView® motorized control.
