Help Keep Your Rooms Warm
Cellular—Or Honeycomb—Shades Are Not Just Beautiful…
They Can Even Save You Money On Your Heating And Cooling Bills.
Cellular shades or honeycomb shades offer beauty and style for just about any window. They are called honeycomb shades because each cell is a hexagon just like the cells in a honeycomb. This is an important aspect of this type of window shade because this attribute can help insulate your windows.
The honeycomb hexagons of a cellular shade trap a layer of air inside the shade. This layer of air inside these cells provide an insulating value to your windows. That means it can prevent heat gain in the summer months as well as heat loss during the winter. The R-value for a 3/8 inch cellular shade is 4. That is the equivalent to having argon gas between two window panes.
Cellular shades are also quite versatile. You can use them wherever you have a South or West facing window due to their insulative qualities. At the same time, because of the level of privacy and room darkening capability they provide, they are also a great blind to consider for bedrooms or wherever else you want additional privacy.
Cellular Shades offer the following additional advantages:
- You literally have hundreds of fabric choices available to you to match these shades to any decor.
- You have several control and size options. You can go cordless, top down and bottom up as well as power.
- You can have cell sizes of 3/8 and 3/4 inches for single cell blinds and 3/4 to 1-1/2 inches for double celled shades.
- One of the best features of cell shades is the fact the fabric widths are quite wide. That means you can fill large windows without a seam or the need for additional rails in most cases.
Cellular shades are a great choice wherever you need style, versatility, and added insulation for your windows.
