Cellular Shades / Light Filtering Shades
With two honeycomb layers, these stylish insulating shades diffuse harsh glare into a pleasant light while insulating your space to stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
108″w x 120″h (Depending on the lift system)
Manual or Motorized
With its elegant 3/8″ pleat double honeycomb design, Light Filtering Cellular Thermal Shades help to insulate your home against drafts and air leaks. Double Cell Construction traps air in its cells acting as a barrier against cold air flow in the winter. In the summer the pockets trap cool air inside reducing unwanted heat gain for lower utility bills year round.
The non-woven polyester fabric blocks 99% of UV Rays as it reduces the glare and diffuses the light. They also reduce heat loss in the winter because of drafty windows.
North Solar Screen takes cords and child safety seriously. Our shades are available cordless (recommended where young children are present). All cord shades have safety tensioners to reduce the hazards of cord strangulation or entanglement or they can be motorized.

The Honeycomb fabric is easy to care for. Regular dusting with a feather duster or vacuum cleaner brush is recommended. Most stains can be blotted with a damp sponge and mild detergent. For problem stains, the shade can be removed from the Installation brackets and soaked in warm water.
IMPORTANT: Do Not immerse headrail in water. When damp, raise shade tightly to re-crisp pleats. Before using anything stronger than mild detergent and lukewarm water, test an unobtrusive corner of the shade. If you have any questions, call your dealer for advice.
