Dual Shades: they’re one of the most functional and trendy styles available today. The striped (banded) fabric allows an easy and instant transition from open to closed as the bands slide by one another. When the bands are aligned, you’ll have full privacy. When you want to see out or let more of the sunshine in, simply shift the bands so that the sheers align and allow diffused light to come pouring in.
Dual shades come in a many colours and stripe widths, which means they can be a focal point of the room or blend in with the décor – the choice is yours. Two fabric types are available – translucent or room-darkening. The room-darkening fabric is great in a bedroom or theater area while the translucent fabric is perfect for main living and dining areas. The of the shade and the valance are wrapped in the same fabric as the stripes for a cohesive look. When the shade is fully open, you'll have an unobstructed view as the shade disappears inside the headrail.
There are many ways to operate a dual shade. RemoteLift motorization is available, and Simplicity automation allows is great because it provides re-chargeable blinds that never need new batteries. You can also purchase the power wand option, which has a wand and pendant that allows you to raise and lower the shade with the touch of a button - it too can be recharged. You can also choose the continuous cord loop option and precisely position the blind at any point while the cord remains a constant length. Cords are anchored down to the sill to provide optimal safety for children and pets. For added versatility, these shades also come with the option of a two-on-one rail which is two shades that operate independently under one valance – idea for wide-set and side-by-side windows.
