Like Pirouette® window shadings, Designer Banded Shades offer a similar, but more casual look for modern and transitional homes.

Designer Banded Shades combine sheer and solid alternating fabric bands into a single shade.  The design concept allows the shade to transition from open to closed seamlessly, providing a modern solution for view-through, light control and privacy. Shades can be positioned to either open or closed when they are in the raised or lowered position allowing for complete privacy or view-through with a single shade.

Light control and privacy – Designer Banded Shades® can be positioned in the open or closed position throughout to infinitely control privacy and unencumbered viewing.

UV protection – Designer Banded Shades® block up to 81% of harmful UV rays with vanes open and 99% with vanes closed.  Interior furnishings are shielded from direct sunlight preserving their beautiful qualities.

Child & pet safety — Hunter Douglas lifting systems offer enhanced safety in homes with young children and pets. Designer Banded Shades® with somfy motorization allow you to control shadings from a hand-held remote, wireless wall switch or your mobile device with My-Link or Z-wave.
