Hunter Douglas Architella Trielle Honeycomb Shade

With the cost of energy skyrocketing, many people are looking for the best insulating window coverings. The Hunter Douglas brand has led the market for many years with exceptionally efficient window shades. The product that leads the field is the Duette. They have different cell options to deal with almost any variation in insulation needs. For example, with the extreme heat and cold of northern Nevada, many people choose to go with the double or triple cell configurations that have been available. But, look closely at the photo above. You will notice that there are more than three layers of fabric. By doing a cell, inside a cell, inside a cell, they have made it possible to have 6 total layers of insulation between you and the outside world. You get five layers in the shade itself, and one more layer between the shade and the glass. Hunter Douglas has changed the way that they offer insulation numbers. They used to offer R-Values, (a recognized determination of insulative value), but they have changed this due to the inconsistencies in the actual windows they were insulating. Now they have a chart of temperatures that makes a very valid point. By using a heat lamp on the other side of some shades providing a temperature of 140 degrees, they measured a temperature on the opposite side of the shade at only 85 degrees using the Trielle fabric. This represents a 20% more efficient window shade than the previous generation of Architella fabrics.
