Cellular Shades: The Best Window Treatment Style For Energy Efficiency

  • 2 min read

Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades available at JC Licht.

Cellular shades excel in energy efficiency compared to traditional blinds due to their innovative honeycomb design. The trapped air in the honeycomb structure acts as a thermal barrier, providing insulation in both cold and hot weather. 

Crafted from energy-efficient materials, options like double-cell or triple-cell shades enhance insulation. They also offer light filtering, noise reduction, and customizable styles. With easy operation and low maintenance, cellular shades are a versatile and effective solution for year-round energy savings.

They offer the industry’s highest level of energy efficiency and can reduce energy loss by up to 50%.

Enhancements For Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Hunter Douglas offers a variety of add-ons and customization options for Duette shades, allowing homeowners to tailor their window treatments to specific preferences. Some notable add-ons include:

Top-Down/Bottom-Up: This option allows you to adjust your shades from both the top and the bottom. It provides flexibility in controlling light and privacy, as you can choose to let light in from the top while maintaining privacy at the bottom, or vice versa.

Duolite®: Duolite is a unique two-in-one design that combines two fabrics in a single shade. It typically pairs a light-filtering fabric with a room-darkening or blackout fabric, giving you the option to switch between privacy and light control.

PowerView® Motorization: This motorized operating system allows you to control your shades with a remote or a smart device. You can set schedules, create scenes, and enjoy the convenience of automated operation.

LightLock®: Designed for maximum light control, LightLock® features unique U-shaped side channels that overlap the front and back of the shades, reducing light gaps and providing enhanced room darkening.

Vertiglide™:The Vertiglide™ system is designed for vertical applications, making it an excellent choice for sliding glass doors and large windows. It allows for easy operation and provides a sleek, space-saving solution, allowing the shades to stack neatly to the side.
