In the classic science-fiction film Blade Runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) goes to the Tyrell Corporation to run the Voight-Kampff test, a psychological exam that can distinguish humans from the factory-made replicants. Deckard says that the light in the room is too bright to perform the test.

And then something happens that has always intrigued us at Beyond Shades

It’s as if a giant veil descends over the window, but it doesn’t look like a physical object. It’s almost like a sheet of smoke.

What is it? Is it a force field? A very thin film? An exotic material that doesn’t exist now? A change in the air where the window pane would be?

Now we don’t carry force fields or atom-thick films at Beyond Shades, but we do have some pretty impressive pieces of technology for your windows.

With room-darkening shades available in the Duette lines, you won’t be disturbed by any outside light, and you can sleep until you are through.

In the Duette Architella line, the ingenious honeycomb structure of the shades helps keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

With the Hunter Douglas Platinum app, you can control your window coverings from your tablet or smartphone.

You can set your windows coverings to let in the right amount of light even when you and your phone are away from home. Platinum even knows when the Sun rises and sets at your location. They don’t have that in 2019 LA.
