Created in 1985 in response to the global energy crisis of the 1970’s, Duette® Honeycomb Shades were the world’s first energy efficient window treatment and remain the industry leader today. In addition to energy efficiency, Duette® Honeycomb shades offer style, customization, privacy and so much more. Read on to learn more about Duette® Honeycomb Shades for homes in Lincoln and Omaha, NE.
Also known as cellular shades, honeycomb shades are a great way to add style to your decor while cutting your home heating and cooling costs. Their unique design features tiny air pockets or cells, in the pattern of a honeycomb that acts as an insulating barrier over your window. This barrier helps keep the temperature in your home constant, reducing the workload on your HVAC system and reducing costs. The cellular construction also increases your home’s energy-efficiency, making them better for the environment.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades can be made from virtually any fabric, color, texture or opacity. When it comes to light control, the type of fabric plays an important role. If you need your shades to gently filter light, choose a light or sheer fabric. If you need shades that can darken a room, choose a heavier, tightly-woven fabric. Hunter Douglas offers optional room darkening liners on all their shades. Additionally, the perfect fit that is guaranteed by choosing custom shades helps to prevent light from leaking in from around the window treatment and the window frame.
In some cases, maximum privacy means giving up the ability to enjoy natural light. Duette® Shades let you have both. The Top Down/Bottom Up operating system allows you to leave the top half of your window uncovered to let in the natural light while keeping the bottom half of the window covered and preventing prying eyes from looking in. Another great option for operating systems that maximizes privacy, light control and convenience is the PowerView® Motorization system. PowerView® lets you schedule your ideal window treatments settings at specific times during the day.
