Honeycomb shades are a type of cellular shades that use a double layer of honeycomb-shaped cells to enhance the intrinsic energy-saving design. In Florida, where sun and heat are intense, honeycomb shades contribute to a comfortable room and because of their effectiveness in keeping out UV rays and more heat, require less air-conditioning. Their two-layer construction make them more expensive than single layer models.
While they are attractive, the energy-saving properties alone make them a good choice of window treatments. When equipped with motors and timers, you can easily put them to work in an instant or on the schedule you want.
Why Choose Honeycomb Shades
Honeycomb shades go beyond what single cell models can do, while offering many of the same properties.
- Broad spectrum of over 1,000 colors
- Reduce heating and cooling costs with better sun and heat absorption
- Absorb sound for a peaceful home environment
- Light filtering and room darkening properties
- Adaptable for use on skylights, arches, octagons, in other unusually shaped windows
Motorization Is A Must With Heavier Shades
Since the double cell honeycomb shades are heavier, the motorization comes in handy. Equipped with just the right Somfy motor to handle the task, the shades can be raised or lowered at the touch of a button. By using the “My” control on the remote or a home automation smart phone app, you can even store the memory of the times of day when the sun is more intrusive and have the shades automatically raise or lower. This is also an asset at dusk, when you want to pull the shades down and turn on artificial lights.
