Dual Shades

The alternating opaque and sheer linear bands in our Dual Shades are both modern and masterful in guiding light and protecting privacy. Innovative and exquisite? We think so.

Product Overview

WHY DUAL SHADES?

  • Translucent and light-dimming fabrics are blended with a sheer or mesh fabric, providing varying opacity levels depending on fabric choice.
  • When aligned, solid bands ensure privacy; when shifted, the sheer bands allow natural light and diffused views.
  • Innovative, fully enclosed bottomrail allows fabric to slide through smoothly for effortless operation and alignment.
  • Shade disappears inside the headrail when raised for a full outdoor view.

privacy & a view

Line up the opaque bands of fabric and you have a view to the outdoors, but the sun has a filter to the indoors, protecting your furnishings. Alternate the bands and your privacy is, well, private.
