Not all shades are appropriate for all windows. French doors and sliding glass doors are basically large windows, but traditional shades may not cover them adequately. That’s why Hunter Douglas offers large window honeycomb shades and French door honeycomb shades made especially to protect these larger glass openings. Duette® Architella® Vertiglide™ large window energy efficient honeycomb shades are vertical honeycomb shades that provide energy-efficiency along with style.
Sliding glass door honeycomb windows coverings are easy to use and provide tremendous energy efficiency and light protection. With the Duolite® Privacy/Light option, you can open the shade in one direction for sheer coverage, allowing natural light in while still providing UV protection and privacy, or in the other direction to cover your window with an opaque shade to block light.
The Duette® Architella® Vertiglide™ can provide needed insulation for your home. Up to 50% of heat can transfer through your windows, and your sliding glass patio doors are effectively the largest window in your home, so installing these shades can provide a dramatic amount of energy savings. In locations with seasonal temperature extremes, these shades can pay for themselves quickly, since you will require less energy to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer due to the greatly reduced heat transfer.
Pleat sizes for these shades range from 3/8” to ¾” or 1¼” to 1½”. For an area the size of a glass door, you’ll usually want a larger pleat size, but you can discuss with one of our expert consultants to help you choose the right pleat size. Other benefits to these shades include:
You’ve taken the time to find just the right coverings for the other windows of your home, why neglect the largest window you have?
