Skylight Shades for Energy Efficiency

Skylight ShadesSkylights are popular in homes throughout Connecticut. People love how they let in extra light to brighten up a room and give it a more open and airy feeling. Too much natural light, however, is not always a good thing. Direct UV light from the sun coming into your home unfiltered can create energy inefficiency and damage the interior of your home. To filter and control light, look for quality skylight shades. As a Hunter Douglas gallery dealer, we have some great options to help you keep the beauty of your skylight while still controlling light.

Skylight Shades from Hunter Douglas

The Hunter Douglas Window Treatments Simplicity™ skylight system is made specifically for honeycomb shades in skylights. Use this operating system with Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades, Duette® honeycomb shades and Applause® honeycomb shades. Choose from a large variety of colors and styles, as well as three hardware colors: Aspen White, Gardenia White, and Bronze

Adjusting Skylight Shades

You may be wondering how you’ll open and close your skylight shades. The Duette Skylift operating system makes it easy for you to manually open and close your shades with a hand crank or telescoping pole. Or, for added convenience, use Duette Skylife with PowerRise® with Platinum™ technology. This remote control option allows you to raise or lower your hard-to-reach honeycomb shades from up to 40 feet away. Motorizing your skylight shades allows you to easily control natural lighting and dramatically reduce overheating from too much direct sunlight.
