Sheers and shadings offer many benefits for your home. These window coverings offer excellent levels of light control and are especially great choices if you enjoy softened natural light in the rooms in your home. Silhouette® and Nantucket Window Shadings lead in light diffusion. These shades soften the harsh sunlight that enters your home and actually spread the light throughout the room to provide more comfortable ambient light with better illumination. In addition to sheer fabric panels, Silhouette® and Nantucket shades also feature soft fabric vanes, which are available in many different fabrics and textures. These shades are available in semi-opaque and light dimming opacities.
In addition to controlling the light entering your rooms, sheers and shadings can also offer UV protection. UV rays can be harmful to both your family and furnishings. They can cause your furniture and flooring to fade. UV light causes the fibers in fabrics and rugs to become dry and brittle, but Hunter Douglas custom sheers and shadings filter out some of these dangerous UV rays. Depending on the fabrics you choose, Silhouette® shadings can block up to 88% of UV rays, and Pirouette® Window Shadings can filter up to 81% with the vanes open and 99% when they are closed.
Privacy is also an important factor to consider in many homes. Luminette® Privacy Sheers are specifically designed to give you the maximum level of privacy, without forcing you to sacrifice style or light control. These shades feature vanes attached to the back of a sheer fabric panel. The vanes can easily be rotated to redirect incoming light or the line of sight into your room. You can close the vanes completely to enjoy maximum privacy. Pirouette® shadings offer excellent levels of privacy because the vanes can be opened to any position or flattened for complete privacy. Pirouette® shades are the modern fabric shutter alternative.
While functional benefits are important, you don’t have to sacrifice style to get the benefits you need. Choose from a large variety of different styles, fabrics, textures, and color to create the perfect complement to your decor.
Hunter Douglas sheers and shades are available in both manual and remote controlled operating systems. The LiteRise® and the PowerView® operating systems are child safe for your peace of mind. These sheers and shades are Greenguard certified and have a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing and component defects.
