Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates. Their honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.

For doors that need extra insulation, the Vertiglide™ operating system is the ideal option. It’s designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. You can use one shade to cover the entire expanse of a sliding door.

Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades differ from the Duette® Honeycomb Shades, offering an innovative design that brings a unique level of dimensional beauty built with energy-efficient construction.
