Honeycomb Shades

The Original Energy-Efficient Honeycomb Shade

An innovative window treatment that looks beautiful and insulates your home all year round, Duette® Honeycomb Shades were the first cellular shades, specially engineered to provide energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates. Their specially engineered honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.

Decorate every kind of window you have—even tricky skylights and unusually shaped panes—with Duette. Our signature honeycomb shades are one of our most versatile options and beautify every kind of interior.

Key Features

Premium Design & Style—Explore the richness of texture and warmth offered by The Alustra® Collection of Duette, a thoughtfully curated suite of exclusive design-inspired fabrics, textures, colors and hardware created to meet the expectations of leading designers and discerning consumers who seek the best in design.

Largest Selection in the Industry—Explore the widest selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colors, textures and operating systems. Duette shades can also accommodate many specialty shaped windows, even tricky skylights. 

Energy-Efficiency—Studies show that windows are responsible for up to 30% of your home’s energy losses. Duette shades trap air in distinct pockets, creating exceptional insulation. Our latest innovation, Duette Architella®, features a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency.

Room Darkening—The LightLock system, the newest iteration from Duette, is the first operating system of its kind to offer unparalleled darkness. The secret lies within the patent-pending side channel design, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light.

Durability—All of our high-performing fabrics are resistant to fading and will maintain their crisp, neat pleats over time.

Vertical Application—For doors that need extra insulation, the Duette Vertiglide operating system is the ideal option. It’s designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. Use one shade to cover the entire expanse of a sliding door, or, cover the door with a split stack Vertiglide shade, with each side operating independently.

Sound Absorption—Improve your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound. Duette Honeycomb Shades absorb up to 70% of sound energy, creating a more quiet, tranquil room.
