Silhouette® Window Shadings

Known as the leader in light transformation, our Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings are one of our top UV-blocking shades for homes. With vanes that adjust effortlessly, these custom shadings let you achieve your ideal levels of light and shade when you need them most. Another benefit of these custom sheers is that they offer sunlight and privacy at the same time.

As with any Hunter Douglas window treatment, you have a variety of customization options with Silhouette® Window Shadings. For example, depending on the type of fabric you can select, these shades can filter up to 88 percent of UV rays. This will allow soft lighting to fill your home without any worry of damage.

These custom shades maintain your outside views while blocking harsh UV rays.

Blocking between 86 percent and 99 percent of damaging UV rays, Designer Screen Shades are one of the best UV-blocking shades for homes.

In addition to blocking harmful UV rays, Designer Screen Shades also offer several opacity options. Since the fabrics of these shades are organized by an openness factor, or how dense the weave of the fabric is, you can achieve your perfect levels of light, shade, and privacy.
