The same light filtering colors can be used to match skylights and regular windows. The side tracks match the bottom moving rail color. These tracks close the gaps around the window and provide better insulation. The hidden gear track allows for smooth operation of the shade and locks the shade into place. Operates as a top down shade. May be upgraded to two moving rails for a top down bottom up shade.
