Silhouette®  – It all begins with the S

Hunter Douglas created a whole new category of window fashions when launching Silhouette® window shadings with the Signature S-Vane™. Silhouette® window shadings magically transform the look of a room by changing the harsh quality of exterior light into soft, remarkable beauty.   The Signature S-Vane™ between two sheer fabrics is what makes Silhouette® window shadings so unique. Tilt, raise or lower shadings for exceptional light control and alluring beauty.

 

Light control and privacy – Silhouette® window shadings assure privacy and manage light beautifully.  View to the outside is clear, while view from the street is obscured during the day. Vanes simply tilt to the precise angle to let in the perfect amount of desired light.

 

UV protection – Silhouette® window shadings provide unparalleled protection without compromising views.  Up to 88% ultraviolet protection with vanes open and 99% with vanes closed.   Interior furnishings are shielded from direct sunlight preserving their beautiful qualities.

 

Save Energy – Nature lights any room. Use Silhouette® window shadings to maximize daylighting by diffusing and dispersing sunlight throughout your home, which enables lights to be turned off and energy to be conserved.

 

Child & pet safety – Hunter Douglas proprietary lifting systems offer enhanced safety in homes with young children and pets.  Silhouette® window shadings with motorization allow you to control shadings from a hand-held remote, wireless wall switch or your mobile device with the Platinum™ App.

 

Specialty Shapes – A wide variety of angles, arches, and sizes to fit nearly any window.
