Pleated and cellular shades have similar looks with crisp lines and soft tones. They come in a wide variety of colours, fabrics & are available as light filtering or room darkening. The main difference between the two shades is their construction. Cellular shades have a honeycomb structure between the pleats that act as an efficient insulator. Pleated shades will help insulate too, but not nearly as well as a cellular shade.
Cellular shades offer superior energy efficiency.
Available in single or double cell, the honeycomb or
cellular pattern is designed to trap air in the
shade creating a layer of insulation between your
home and the outside temperatures. Cellular shades offer you
the best heat loss prevention for those cold winter months.
There are no visible cords and no unsightly cord
holes, making the cellular shades a beautiful uniform
looking blind that has outstanding performance.
All fabrics have a neutral white backing for a clean and
consistent exterior. Therefore, no matter what fabric colour is
chosen on the interior, the exterior will always be a
neutral white. Elite cellular shades are available with
a number of hardware and operation functions including
cordless operation, cafe style (top-down bottom-up), dual
fabric eclipse shade, and continuous cord loop systems.
Pleated shades add beauty, style, and comfort to
the interior of any room. With many different colour and style
options, pleated shades offer you the flexibility to make them
fit your design. This includes, light filtering to give the room a
nice warm glow to room darkening when there is a need to
block out the sun completely.
