The Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shade comes with 3 different types of controls.

Pirouette EasyRise Shades with Decorative Side Panels

  1. EasyRise- Pictured in the video below. It is a continuous cord control. One of two standard, no charge mechanisms. The most durable and adjustable type of control, but has the least asthetically pleasing look, with its thick double cord and need for tethering of the mechanism to the window opening.
  2. UltraGlide- This is a single cord mechanism that hangs without tethering to any desired length. By use of a “Pump” action, you are able to lower or raise the shade while the cord returns to its original length after you release it. This mechanism is not preferred for children’s rooms or guest quarters as it is not intuitive. A little training can be necessary and rough treatment can cause damage and the need for repairs.
  3. PowerView- A battery or hard-wired motorized mechanism. Bling factor, high. Ease of use, moderate. With basic training, this is the preferred mechanism for most Kempler Design clients. Control can be performed on the shade’s headrail itself, but that is very unusual. By use of the remote control or using a “HUB” wi-fi and Hunter Douglas PowerView App, you can use a “scene controller”, IOS or Android device to control or program the shades to virtually any need.

To determine if the EasyRise, UltraGlide or PowerView is the best solution for your needs, please contact a professional window treatment expert in your area or contact us to schedule a consultation.
