Cellular Shades

Styles, Fabrics and Uses

Cellular or honeycomb shades are very popular due to their high insulating values and functionality. Whether a single cell, double cell, or a triple cell shade, there is a huge pallet of colors to choose from. Style offerings include everything from sheer shades which allows the maximum amount of filtered light in while keeping some of the harmful UV rays out, to opaque room darkening shades that block nearly all light. There are textured fabrics to add some elegance and variety. Hunter Douglas offers a unique Duolite. The Hunter Douglas Duolite gives you two fabrics on one Cellular Shade. For example: in a bedroom you could have a blackout shade for sleeping along with a privacy shade to allow filtered light in during the day.

Nearly all of our Cellular Shade fabrics are GREENGUARD indoor air quality certified. Learn more about GREENGUARD here.

Controls, Shapes and Manufacturers

There is a wide variety of manual control options. Some of these include: continuous cord, cordlock, cordless lifts and UltraGlide on Hunter Douglas shades. UltraGlide is a ratcheting system that eliminates long dangerous cords by keeping the pull cord the same height all of the time. Cellular shades can come in the standard (bottom up) configuration or top down/bottom-up.

Cellular shades can be motorized by adding a motor to the lift system. Motorization can be battery powered or hard wired.  Cellular Shades can be controlled via RF (radio frequency) or IR (infrared) remotes. There is always the option to have an in-wall keypad or have them controlled with an automation system.

With the hard wired motorization of Cellular Shades you can have larger shade sizes than you would be able to have with a manually controlled shade or battery powered motor.

Cellular shades can be manufactured to accommodate odd shaped windows. From angled top windows to round windows and everything in between. They can even be made with cut outs (e.g. door handles) if needed.
