Honeycomb shades are very popular with a lot of people—and have been for decades. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, many of our customers choose honeycomb shades for their energy efficiency and other great benefits. Hunter Douglas makes two kinds of honeycomb shade, Duette® and Applause®. Today, we’d like to introduce you to Applause. Read on to learn more!
Benefits of Honeycomb Shades
In response to the energy crisis of the 1970s, honeycomb shades (also called cellular blinds or shades) were developed in 1985. Their unique honeycomb construction traps air at the window, keeping inside air in and outside air out, which helps save on energy costs. Plus, honeycomb shades offer superior privacy, insulation, and light control.
Hunter Douglas Applause® Honeycomb Shades
Made with the high quality associated with all Hunter Douglas products, Applause honeycomb shades offer energy savings at an affordable price. Although many other brands of cellular shades are made with a single cell, Applause is created with a double cell, which offers increased insulation over that single-cell construction. And if you have a window that’s a specialty shape, like an arch, oval, angle, or skylight, Applause can be customized for your needs.
As with other honeycomb offerings, Applause is available with a variety of operating systems.
If you need a treatment for a vertically oriented opening, such as a slider, French doors, or a patio door, Hunter Douglas offers the Vertiglide™ operating system for honeycomb shades. It turns the fabric vertical, so you can have matching products in a room that has both a regular-size window and a larger opening. You can also choose from UltraGlide®, LiteRise®, EasyGlide™, and PowerView®, as well as the option of using top-down/bottom-up operation.
