Hunter Douglas



A standard in energy efficiency, Applause® honeycomb shades offer a streamlined selection of fabrics, colors and operating systems, including Vertiglide™. The new Venue™ fabric selection features Microshield which resists the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria that can cause odors. This is the first cellular fabric in the market to offer this protection. Applause offers an economical option for your honeycomb selections with a more limited range of options than the Duette line.


In 1985 Hunter Douglas introduced Duette®, the original honeycomb shade. It was a breakthrough in energy efficiency.

Offered in a wealth of choices for nature-inspired energy efficiency, the original single- and double-honeycomb Duette® shades come in multiple cell sizes, a horizontal or Vertiglide™ vertical orientation, and a range of light-control options from sheer to opaque.

VertiGlide™ – Shown above with the option called Duolite, combines a semi-opaque and sheer material offering two transparency options in one shade system.

The top-down/bottom-up operation shown above is an excellent operating system when privacy is needed while maintaining some view and optimizing the light. There are a number of operating systems from which to select.

In 2007 Hunter Douglas’s focus on continuous improvement resulted in the creation of Duette Architella® – a beautiful window covering providing a superb investment that can save even more energy in our homes, in any climate, during every season. Our honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design offers energy savings in both winter and summer. Choose from the largest selection of fabrics, colors and pleat sizes. Vertiglide™ options are also available.

And, the new industry leader, Duette® Architella® Trielle™, incorporates six layers of fabric, five insulating air pockets and the largest 1.5” pleat size, delivering 20% more energy efficiency than even our original Architella shades.

The newest semi-sheer, Architella Batiste, is the first energy-efficient semi-sheer fabric in the Architella collection. This new fabric features IllumiCell, the exclusive clear inner cell, that diffuses light for the ultimate combination of view-through and energy efficiency.
