Hunter Douglas motorized window fashions can also be seamlessly integrated with any home automation system. Fashion and function are no longer exclusive concepts with Hunter Douglas motorized products.


Retractable cord

The revolutionary Hunter Douglas UltraGlide® operating system uses a retractable cord mechanism to raise and lower the window shade or shading.

  • Constant cord length means there are never any long, dangling cords to detract from the appearance of the shade.
  • Increased safety for children and pets.


Continuous Loop

One of the most important advantages of Hunter Douglas window fashions over traditional soft window coverings is their ease of operation. A continuous loop, which works on the principle of a pulley, rotates a clutch to raise or lower the shade. From the fully raised position, pulling down on the front half of the loop lowers the shading. The covering is raised by pulling on the rear of the continuous loop.

  • Our EasyRise™ system provides the mechanical advantage needed to raise and lower large window fashions.
  • The Dual Roller Shade option allows you to pair two fabrics of varying opacities on one cassette for optimum light control and an intriguing layered effect.
  • The Chelsea™ roller system features brushed metallic brackets, clutch operation, beaded chain and a round bottom rail with end caps

  • No lift cords for a clean, uncluttered look.
  • Proprietary design holds blinds and shades securely in any position – no constant adjusting, making it easy to raise your blinds or shades to an even height.
  • Elimination of lift cords means increased safety for children and pets.
  • Top-Down/Bottom-Up and Duolite™ options are available on Duette® and Applause® with LiteRise, a great solution for bedrooms and bathrooms, even media rooms where both light control and privacy are required.Select Duette® and Applause® honeycomb shades fabrics offer the added benefit of the LiteRise® TrimKitoption.
