The History of Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades were developed in 1985 in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s. Also called cellular blinds or shades, honeycomb shades continue to be popular today because they provide superior privacy, insulation, and light control. Plus, with their honeycomb construction that traps outside air in their pockets, which helps keep a room cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Inside air stays in and outside air stays out.
Applause® Honeycomb Shades
Applause honeycomb shades can give you energy savings at an affordable price while offering the quality of the Hunter Douglas brand. Unlike some other brands of cellular shades, Applause is created with a double cell, which means increased insulation over regular single-cell construction. Other features include:
- Good for Many Window Types. Applause can be customized for specialty shaped windows, including arches, angles, ovals, skylights, and more.
- Vertical Orientation. If you need a treatment for a slider, French doors, or a patio door, you’ll be able to find the perfect complementary solution with Vertiglide™. This allows you to have congruity in a room that has both a regular-size window and a larger opening.
- Operating Systems. As with other honeycomb offerings, Applause is available with a variety of operating systems. Among others, you can choose from UltraGlide®, LiteRise®, EasyGlide™, and PowerView®, as well as the option of using top-down/bottom-up operation.
