1. Will these shades help insulate my windows?
Cellular Shades have long been
regarded as premier energy saving shade. The design of a Cellular Shade
is such the it actually can trap the air in the cells and provide insulation,
light blockage and UV protection.
insulation is a top priority, our 3/8" Double Cellular Shade is a
top recommendation. The double layer of cells traps twice the air and
maximum energy efficiency.
3. Can this shade block out all the light in my room?
The short answer is not really,
however, it can block most natural light from coming in. The level of
light blockage and privacy you will get from a Cellular Shade is mostly
the result of the material you select. We offer several black out materials
for you to choose from. Keep in mind that if you are going to be mounting
the shade within the window [inside mount] there will be a deduction
we will take on the width to ensure that the shade functions properly
and this small "gap" will subsequently let some light in the sides.
Selecting an outside mount will help alleviate some of the light seepage
however then the shade will be projecting off the wall and there will
still be some light still coming in.
only way to get a true "cave effect" and block all of the light
is to go "hotel-style" and treat your windows with blackout draperies
that close and a cornice above [to prevent light seepage from the top].
