  • For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. Duette® Architella® Vertiglide™ honeycomb shades help save energy at the window in the following ways:

    Insulation: With a highly energy-efficient cellular design, Duette® Architella® Vertiglide™ honeycomb shades assist in insulating at the window—helping reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and creating a more comfortable room setting.

    Solar Heat Control: Duette® Architella® Vertiglide™ honeycomb shades help reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window, which is known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The lower the SHGC, the more protected your home is from the sun's heat in the summer.

    Note: For optimal insulation and solar heat control, choose an opaque fabric and keep the shade fully lowered to reflect heat, or fully raised to maximize the warming effects of the sun. White and light-colored fabrics improve a product's solar heat control. Choose a sheer or semi-sheer fabric option if daylighting benefits are desired.
