Skylight Shades

Skylight Shades

How do you cover a skylight? There are a few choices, but one of the best is a cellular shade. The multiple layers of fabric protect the inner layers from the damaging light from the sun and those same layers also protect the inner cords from sun rot. There are a few ways to control them. You can choose manual or motorized. This video demonstrates a very good quality product made by Hunter Douglas. It is the Duette Architella Shade with an opaque, or blackout liner. This particular shade is controlled by a brand new motor system, called the PowerView motorization control. Though these can be wired into your home electric system, these are powered by 16 lithium AA batteries. Most battery systems use a standard alkaline AA, but due to the high heat expected in a skylight application, the manufacturer suggests a lithium battery, as it is more durable in high heat situations. The PowerView motors are perfect for whole home solutions, as they can be integrated into any home automation system, or good as a stand alone motorized shade system, as this one is. Kempler Design offers consultation as to the best solution for your skylight, or standard window needs.
