Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb cellular shades

A functional, stylish, automated or manual shade that provides convenience, enhances décor, and saves energy.

Honeycomb, or cellular, shades provide sun protection while trapping air at the window, serving as a layer of insulation between the window and your home. Available in light filtering, room darkening, or a combination of the 2, Honeycomb shades are a cost-effective way to control the sun, light, and temperature in your home.
Insulating honeycomb shades can be stacked at the top of the window, bottom of the window, and in some instances at the top and bottom of the window, for top-down, bottom-up, or top-down/bottom-up operation respectively. Innovative air pockets trap cool and warm air at the window to provide superior insulation for enhanced energy efficiency.

The magic of cellular honeycomb shades is in their specially engineered honeycomb shape, a unique construction that traps air and creates a layer of insulation between the window and a room’s inside temperature. These shades offer superior energy efficiency, helping to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Honeycomb Shade Control

With manual and automated honeycomb shade options available, you can cover even those hard-to-reach windows with the ability to drop your shades with the press of a button.

With automated shading solutions, you can easily raise the shades to add sunlight or lower them to reduce heat buildup while adding instant privacy. Shades can be preset to automatically open and close during a specific time a year, effectively controlling sunlight to prevent harsh U/V rays from damaging expensive furnishings, floorings, or appliances. Or if you prefer, you can simply push a button to adjust them when you want, achieving the greatest beauty and efficiency in each room at all times.

SaaviHome integrates shades into our Home Automation Systems or can set them up individually. Energy savings down the road can pay for a shade investment while also helping the environment. It’s a win/win!

Top Down/Bottom Up Honeycomb Shades

Direct the light in your home as you see fit—from the top, from the bottom or in combination with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up system. You can position your window treatments as you like, customizing the light balance and privacy in your home to suit your needs. Available in several operating systems including automated, Top-Down/Bottom-Up Honeycomb shades offer the ultimate in versatility.

Unlike traditional shades that only open from the bottom up, the Top-Down/Bottom-Up design option lets you customize the exact position of your shades to fit your ideal level of privacy, light control and comfort.

Even on cloudy days, damaging UV rays can fade and deteriorate your furnishings. With Top-Down/Bottom-Up shades, you can position your shades to block the sun’s harsh rays while still bringing in natural sunlight.

Blackout Honeycomb Shades

The LightLock™ system, the newest iteration from Duette Honeycomb, is the first operating system of its kind to offer unparalleled darkness. The secret lies within the patent-pending side channel design, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light. Fitting securely into the window frame, the Duette® LightLock™ system is the only one of its kind to provide such darkening effects. Its innovative U-shaped side channels feature a black, ridged interior surface that traps and absorbs light of all strengths and from all angles, leaving rooms nearly dark.

Room Darkening and blackout fabrics block light from entering into a space, create complete privacy from the outside, and offer the most energy savings.

Just like the right vitamins and adequate exercise, the right amount of light is proving to be an essential element for optimal health. The darker the room, the better the sleep!
