Blackout Shades are constructed to cut all visible light and harmful UV rays. Their blackout material is ideal for bedrooms, media rooms and places where privacy and total darkness is a must.
Blackout Shades consist of a solid piece of fabric that moves vertically from the bottom to the top of the window. They offer total light control, are very energy efficient, block the outside elements, and can even help minimize noise pollution.
The most common Blackout Shade is the Cellular Shade, also known as the Honeycomb Shade. Cellular Shades or Honeycomb Shades feature a solid fabric that stacks like an accordion. When the shade is tilted sideways, it resembles a honeycomb beehive. Most have a metal milar interior that is extremely energy efficient. The cell design can also help to trap sound. These can be ordered with motorization options, cordless operation or a standard cordlock control.
Blackout Roller Shades are also very popular among consumers. These Roller Shades feature a simple design, with the blackout fabric covering the window and a bar along the bottom to weigh it down and keep it closed. Roller Shades are very popular because they are traditional, come in a large selection of color choices and are very easy to operate. You can also motorize the shades for those hard to reach or high up windows. Although the spring loaded cordless option is available, the standard cord chain system is still the most popular because it stabilizes the shade and is ideal for large windows.
